Not that we’re surprised, of course.
Yesterday, GQ September cover star Robert Pattinson proved his skill at wearing all-black (the trick, it turns out, is to not wear only black) while promoting his new flick Good Time in N.Y.C. It turns out that much like his acting, Pattinson’s style is more layered than we’d initially thought. Because today the actor proved he knows his way around the more colorful stuff that most guys live in—and like wearing all black, he knows how to do it well.
Pattinson threw on his favorite kicks (Adidas Gazelles), under a pair of deep blue distressed jeans and a forest green bomber jacket layered over a tonal olive green tee. The look had none of yesterday’s rockstar-tinged edge and all of the effortless vibes any guy can appreciate. If anything, the outfit proved that Robert Pattinson is not only not afraid of wearing color, but he knows how to wear it well. If you ever want to tone down a bold piece, just pair it with a dustier version of whatever color it is (i.e. just what the actor did with his shirt-and-jacket combo).
And a word on that lightweight jacket. You should already be on the hunt for a one that’s wear-everywhere-able and that magically pulls together the laziest of lazy day outfits and you’d do best to use Pattinson’s as a starting point (Todd Snyder makes a similar version we’d definitely recommend). The pine-tree green is a step above menswear’s core colors (navy, gray, black), but it’s still a color you can wear with most of the stuff you already own—i.e. jeans, a tee, and your favorite pair of sneakers. So while you probably don’t need to dress like a normal dude just to dodge paparazzi like Pattinson, dressing like a movie star in regular guy clothes is never a bad move.
