Saturday. An airport in Paris. Passengers waiting for a plane to Nicea. Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and six kids among them. After a while they all go through the gate and sit on board – economic class. Brad wearing sunglasses and a hat is helping his happy crew hide their luggage and sit back in their seats. Angelina with a charming smile talks to the smallest children. A regular family. Exactly… REGULAR. It’s the key word and Brad Pitt’s style indicator. Despite the success that he acheived, he is a regular guy! Not long ago he would earn extra money for acting classes running around the city dressed as a chicken and advertising the El Pollo Loco restaurant 😀 He seems not to have forgotten this. He doesn’t overdress, shock with his money, and the most important elements of his image are… a tricksy smile and… a pert look 😉 Nothing happens without a reason, though! Even his “I woke up in the moring, covered myself with the first thing that was in my sight and I look great” needs knowledge, work on yourself and proper cuts in your closet. Let’s go through Brad Pitt’s style step by step 😉
I. HIS STYLE IS, above all, is self esteem and a bit of distance
Brad is aware of his charm and of the time passing by 😉 People say that a man is like wine: the older the better – in his case as well. When he was young he’d use his muscles and biceps as a bargaining card, and now? Now, above all, he’s the head of the family and an experienced actor. He does not blindly follow the trends and even though he’s not a fashion victim, he keeps his ear to the ground. He always has a must have of the season on, it might be a hairstyle, or a beard. He doesn’t overstylize himself, and clothes are more of an accessory to his personality. They don’t play the first fiddle. He sometimes is conservative, but just to be able to surprise his fans from time to time with colorful nails, a funny mustache or a T-shirt painted by his children. He likes to accentuate the impression of comfort with the help of slightly too big clothes. But be careful! It’s only suitable for tall men. All the ones shorter than 180 cm would look as if they were wearing shirts borrowed from an older brother 😉
HINT: Let your man wear what he likes, even if it’s a regular T-shirt and jeans. You, on the other hand, make sure to equip him with fashionable items, which could indicate the knowledge of trends. In this season it can be a “slicked-down” hairstyle, or hard suede shoes. Best in cognac shade! 😉
II. HIS COLORS, not so Macademian, but we forgive him 😉
If I ever had an occasion to meet Brad personally, I’d surely convince him to wear more colors (otherwise I wouldn’t be myself ;)) Beige, Brown, olive, black, grey and white are his favorite colors. They’re not 100 % me, but what encourages me are two factore:
1. THIS IS BRAD PITT. He can be forgiven a lot.;)
2. His coloristic type – Brad’s complexion is cool, a bit subtle. Too saturated colors next to his face could draw attention away from it (and we wouldn’t want that :D)
Everything that he wears makes an impression of a bit worn-out, but that’s what makes it a perfect background and seems to be screaming: „it’s Brad who is the most important!”. A careful attitude when it comes to colors doesn’t exclude interesting solutions. Light Miami Vice style suits are his special feature. Just like a coloristic total look.. You can often see him wearing sand or olive brown total look from head to toe.
HINT: A monocoloristic total look is a perfect solution for men who are not tall enough. There’re no drastic colors combinations, which could make the figure look shorter. Your man will seem taller and slimmer. Try to convince him to break such a set with a contrast accessory, e.g. a belt, socks, or, in the case of a suit, with an interesting shirt 😉
III. HIS ACCESSORIES – no way without them
In „Sex and the City” there is that scene when Samantha praperes her man (a movie star to be) to meet his fans. She explains to him that she can’t go out to tchem just in jeans and a T-shirt. They’re expecting thet he’s gonna be wearing something super trendy, something they can’t afford. And then she gives him… Fashionable glasses… 😉 And that’s how Brad doeas it! He always has his glasses, hat, or at least a signet ring in the price of which you could get a small flat around 😀 They say that these accessories show up „accidentally”, but they always match the whole perfectly. He doesn’t make an impression of too stylized nor too girly. Nonchalance is the secret 😉
HINT: One can hide imperfections with the help of accessories. A loose scarf can perfectly hide a belly, a stylish cap will draw attention away from a receding hairline and designer glasses will give a special feature even to the simplest look and will help you shape your face.
IV. HIS HAIRSTYLES, let’s not be scared to experiment!
I haven’t a slightest idea what would happen if Brad had a tendency for going bald – besides it being a tragedy, of course 😉 I can’t imagine him without constant hairstyle revolutions. Well, I even have a theory that he broke up with Jennifer Ainston, because… she had her „Rachel” hairstyle for too long 😀 Of course I’m joking, but the facts are that he experiments with hairstyles on a daily basis. He isn’t scared in the field, he foresees the trends and very often takes the Winding and dangerous roads 😉 Remember long hair and a few weeks beard? Everyone thought that he’s just preparing to a part in another setting of „Robinson Cruzoe”, and he was promoting the „urban logger” style, which, after some time, came to Poland as well 😉 Now he combs his hair back, which is one of the hottest trends as well. Could we say about not hot trends in the case of Brad? 😉
HINT: Encourage your men to experiment with haircuts. Regardless of the shape of their face, everyone looks good in a classic male cut: shorter at the sides and longer at the top. It doesn’t mean that it always has to be stylized in the same way! One time he can cut his top shorter, the other do a parting on the side, some other he might put the hair up.
V. HIS LOOKS FOR YOUR MAN
Now you see that Brad Pitt’s style isn’t that complicated and “off limits”. All you need to have is the will and a bit of imagination to have a better version of him on your side 😉 Take a look what I chose for your man from the Polish stores. I hope it’ll inspire you and encourage to start a little home makeover! Let me know in the comments how your man react to such image changes 😉
