CelebrityThis Outfit Will Help You Transition from Summer to Fall
Starring Christian Slater
Christian Slater isn’t the bad boy anymore. He isn’t the guy to wear a Hawaiian shirt that looks like it was peeled off his bedroom floor. But he’s still got a certain attitude in the way he puts himself together. Just enough for a 47-year-old dude with two teenage children. Just enough for most of us. Yesterday, en route to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he wore an outfit that was the perfect example of how to dress for fall when it’s not quite fall, and how to look cool while you’re at it. The formula: expensive-looking black tee, deep purple straight-leg cords, and black leather sneakers. Commit it to memory. Copy it head-to-toe. This is a look that will serve you well.
Okay, fine, the purple cords don’t have to be purple cords. They could be ochre-color chinos. Or forest-green trousers. Or burgundy joggers. The point is to nod to fall with a rich, cold-weather color, without breaking out your scarf, hat, and gloves while you’re at it. Anchor the bold-color piece with basic black summer staples and you’re done. It requires about two brain cells and looks outstanding. You can trust Christian Slater, guys. These days, anyway.
