Lewis Hamilton – Our Man of the Month
This British Formula One racing driver and twice world champion, who is unafraid of making a style statement, has to be Lewis Hamilton, and he is our Man of the Month. Well known for his casual dress sense, and love for sparkling, bling accessories. Yet he certainly knows how to don a suit.
It is so refreshing to see a man unafraid of wearing colour. Lewis Hamilton gets it absolutely spot on with this daring red, slim fit suit, which he pairs with a striking black shirt and pocket square. Whereas when wearing a tux, he opts for a jacket in brighter red, made from fabric with a slight sheen and featuring a black lapel. Which cleverly ties together; his black trousers, bow tie and buttons. A great alternative to a classic black tux, ideal for when attending a black tie event.
Lewis certainly seems to be a fan of making a fashion statement. For example pictured here at a red carpeted event, he effortlessly dons a bright blue jacket, with a matching waistcoat and buttoned up white shirt. Paired with black straight leg trousers and patent trainers! His cheeky confidence, pays style dividends and enables Lewis to pull off ensembles that unexpectedly work.
On the other hand when wanting to make a statement, it doesn’t always have to be the boldest or brightest outfit, the devil really is in the detail, as Lewis proves at other events. Where he wears an unusual thin striped grey and white shift, worn neatly underneath a fitted dark grey suit, accessorising with a black skinny tie. On the second occasion he wears a sleek, black slim fitting suit, with a tailored dinner shirt, completed with black star embroidery on the collar. Giving this outfit an understated stylish edge. Take note, these ensembles areextremely flattering and would compliment a variety of complexions and body types.
One question left unanswered is, how would we choose to dress Lewis here at Alexandra Wood? Cross examining with his love for colour and detail, we would combine these factors and dress him in an outlandish rich purple suit, with a black, tailored shirt. To complete the look with patent black brogues, and his statement diamond stud earrings.
5 ways to steal Lewis’s style:
- Be bold and brave
- Wear rich, warm colours that work with your skin tone
- Wear your suits slim, with a tapered pair of trousers
- Wear a slick pair of shoes, perhaps patent…
- Add the shades and don’t be afraid to layer
