The couple that dresses together, stays together. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are a fabulous example of this, having worn his-and-hers Prada tanks and coordinated Thom Browne looks in the past. The cohesive looks pack a strong punch, but also deftly communicate a show of unity and synchronicity. Last night, the two style stars continued their streak of standout, and never cheesy, couples dressing while attending a movie screening in New York. Both wore on-trend boxy, loose suits that were breezy and casual. Union opted for an exposed décolleté and Wade for sneakers and a mock neck. No stuffy evening wear here!
Wade wore an oversized orange suit by Zegna (one wonders: Is the colored suit the new black suit in menswear?). While Union donned a sleek black one, resulting in a color palette perfect for fall. Union’s look would be at home in an art gallery, with her crisp, pleated trousers that featured a fabulous drape paired with pointed heels. While Wade served up a fresh and youthful spin on going out clothes, swapping the run-of-the-mill blazer for a bold, well-tailored overcoat.
Together, the looks prove that formal wear can be anything but boring. There is room to have fun, especially when you have a formidable partner in crime. It’s clear: two strong sartorial statements are better than one.
