This post is about Dan Stevens in a suit
And Dan Stevens in a blazer
And a blazer with a scarf
Or a scarf and a hat
but mostly it’s about Dan Stevens & his funky(in the good sense) taste in shoes.
I really like the current fad of peek-a-boo splashes of color that appear under a man’s suit or trouser leg in sock form; it’s fun but classy. Dan Stevens takes it one step farther and adds personality through his shoes. I first noticed this when I saw a clip of his appearance on the ‘Late Late show with James Corden’. My eye was drawn to the red socks and then… are those flowers on his shoes? Oh, I hope so!!
In interviews and appearances he seems to favor boots or chunky shoes
No matter if he’s going for the ‘I just threw this together’ look
Or a more ‘office appropriate’ style.
Then I saw him in a ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ interview. He was wearing a striped number that was in no way understated, but he wore it well and it was fun. I could get on board with that.
One of the shared pastimes of my celebrity crush fandoms is ‘premiere suit appreciation’. When a movie is released, it is usually accompanied by multiple premiere’s in different cities/countries, all of which require a different suit for it’s leading men. I became a Dan Stevens fan after ‘Beauty and the Beast’ premiered, so I had to go looking for examples of his suit style. What I found really tickled my fancy! Dan isn’t afraid of color. He often shows up in jewel toned suits
With an occasional ‘out of the box’ pick thrown in for good measure.
After discovering those flower shoes, I found myself looking more closely at his feet. And I found a treasure trove of awesomeness! Dan sometimes matches his shoe color to what he’s wearing
There have also been metallic pixels
And blue suede.
I don’t know whether these choices are purely Dan, his stylist, or a collaboration between them both but I wholeheartedly approve!
I was curious how his off camera style might differ, so I looked for some out-and-about candids too. He likes boots and jackets
And scarves and hats.
His most recent appearance was at the Tribecca film festival for his film ‘Permission’, which gave us a bold Houndstooth
And a funky maroon number that I adored.
Maybe it wasn’t just the suit but the shaggy hair and captivating eyes.
(to see the suit in action, check out this interview. it gives a great example of his laugh and dry sense of humor)
Dan’s next movie release is sci-fi ‘Kill Switch’, due out June 16. No matter if he decides to go bold or classic with his attire
I’ll be holding out hope for more funky shoes!
