As the eight-year-old future King of England remarked while attending the Wimbledon final in a navy suit over the weekend, formal attire is certainly “too hot”. However, official events beckon, whether that means red carpets (for the celebrities) or summer weddings (for the rest of us). And so, when it comes to warm-weather dressing inspiration, any little bit helps.
Enter actor John Cho, who is currently in the press to promote his new Amazon Prime movie Don’t make me go, a character that is almost certain to shed tears that Cho plays a single father taking his teenage daughter on a cross-country road trip. While walking the red carpet isn’t quite the same as trying out a said scenario, sitting in the sun during the London heatwave, Cho showed off some key summer dressing moves. Think: wear a pair of Oliver Pe People’s pink glasses to accentuate his maroon Fendi suit at the premiere of the movie Tribeca, or swap out a black linen button underneath his jacket her at a Film Independent screening, or summer even a suit jacket (!) with some buttons undone at a movie screening in Los Angeles. Lots of small flourishes to make a big impact.
And because honestly, science hasn’t come up with a warm weather equivalent of the same weather as a suit, the real secret to weeding out summer dressy might be, well, nail pretty much everything else going on in your suit. Like Thor: Love and Thunder Director Taika Waititi has also been exhibiting for the past few weeks, dress up if you want — but also use this as an excuse to order a few extra accessories. (Try on a pair of killer sunglasses or some fun jewelry.) It’s also a great excuse to try something new and wise. While it’s clear Cho and Waititi are endowed with incredible hair, between Cho’s cool beard and Waititi’s meticulous moustache, they both have a bit of hair on their faces. Who would notice a little sweat when there’s so much else in the mix to admire?
