At this year Critics Choice Awards Dan Levy, Stephan James, Harry Shum Jr. and Shameik Moore opted in for the traditional tuxedo. Although a far cry from a simple black number. Most gentlemen at this years ceremony decided not to sport a black tux, but stray from tradition and put their own spin on the famous dress code.


Get the look - This year the focus was on colour and fabric. A patterned tuxedo, sported by Dan Levy, was one of our favourite takes on the traditional tux. It will definitely get you noticed. Similarly a sparkling dinner jacket, as worn by Harry Shum Jr, is equally as striking. While colour is also key to these outfits, navy and black & white tuxedos, rather than the classic black, creates a sophisticated and alternative look.


Critics Choice Awards - Alternative looks



Our favourite alternative looks at this years Critics Choice Awards where worn by Lakeith Stanfield, Timothée Chalamet, Darren Criss and John Krasinski. Straying away from the classic tuxedo, these gentlemen opted for a more causal attire.


Get the look -  Despite the casualness, these men are still dressed to impress. They've ditched the bow tie and focused all their attention on their suits. Lakeith Stanfield and Timothée Chalamet stood out from the crowd in a black and white checked tuxedo and a colourful Alexander McQueen suit. While Darren Criss and John Krasinski stuck to more subtle colours, with an all beige suit and black and white combo. A good way to dress up or dress down a suit is through your shoes. Timothée Chalamet is a prime example, pairing his suit with a pair of white trainers for a relaxed and casual look. While  Lakeith Stanfield sported a pair of velvet  dress shoes to bring his outfit to another level.
