Shirt Stories: Brad Goreski, the Rachel Zoe Project
July 28th, 2009 | Uncategorized
On Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, Brad Goreski’s exploits as a styling associate in the celebrity fashion realm are well documented. For Shirt Stories, Brad lends his Hollywood perspective on a Steven Alan shirt and bow tie.
What do you like about the shirt and tie, and what made you wear it this way?
Plaid is definitely a staple in my wardrobe. I particularly love this one because the colors are so vibrant and unexpected – the perfect plaid for summer. This is a “feel good shirt” because the minute you put it on you feel happy. I paired this shirt with a pair of old denim cut offs for a more casual feel, and added the white cotton bow tie for fun. I like the juxtaposition of loose and distressed denim on the bottom and buttoned up and put together look of the shirt and bow tie on the top. The patent wing tips are the perfect accent to this outfit. Why not wear something like this to a beach party, then throw a blazer over it and go to dinner…super chic!
How would you style this shirt for a client?
I would love to see this shirt on a guy like James Franco who has a more relaxed but very cool style. He doesn’t usually wear colors that are this bright, but I think it would look fantastic on him for a photo call or something. For him, I would take away the bow tie, and style the shirt under a leather jacket with a pair of faded black jeans and distressed boots. It could also look very cool with a fitted blazer over it and the bow tie, but for a Jonas Brother, not for Franco.
