FASHION TRENDS INSPIRED BY LEONARDO DICAPRIO LOOK IN ROMEO AND JULIET
There are a lot of things a nineties-era Leonardo DiCaprio could still prove us of: resisting our parents’ wishes to wed in secret, “never letting go” as titanic (ahem) problems add up, and probably gaming casual oversize grandpa shirts like the Hawaiian one he made famous in Romeo + Juliet. Ignore the fact that our favorite heartthrob’s scene was most likely stolen right from the kitschy racks of Tommy Bahama and consider that the bouncing silk shirt fit perfectly off DiCaprio’s bony frame as he defeated his enemies in the name of star-crossed love.
Yes, taken from its crazy roots, the oversized style is unusal and odd must-have for early fall.
Just think of combining all the bite and sass of a Paco Rabanne striped miniskirt and the heresy of high-top Vans skater sneakers and pairing them with Marc Jacobs’s punchy coral Hawaiian shirt: Gone is the shirt’s cheap-looking connotations and instead a cooler look appears.To recall DiCaprio’s stylish look, why not wear Marc by Marc Jacobs’s palm tree–decorated version with retro-inspired wide-leg Opening Ceremony trim off flares. As Market Editor Kelly Connor explains, inspired by Romeo + Juliet’s costumes, she’s been trying to get her hands on the very one Leo wore for years now. Luckily, designers are putting this look for offscreen: “He makes it look so cool. I did find this amazing men’s shirt at American Apparel that has been my best friend this summer, and I can’t wait to get my paws on these ones by Marc Jacobs!”
