The Best-Dressed Men at the 2019 Oscars Proved Velvet Suiting is Cool

Typically, all eyes are on the ladies when it comes to red carpet fashion, but at the 2019 Oscars Jason Momoa, Michael B. Jordan, and several other stylish men stole the spotlight in plush velvet blazers and tuxedos. Classic black, deep jewel tones, and even a surprising pop of pink made their way down the carpet on the biggest night in Hollywood, proving the modern man should embrace the elegant look of velvet suiting for evening attire.


It’s no surprise that velvet would translate to red carpet style gold with it’s luxe sheen, rich texture, and weight that hangs handsomely on a body. The sturdiness of velvet fabric is perfect for sharp tailoring to give men like Henry Golding and Joe Alwyn that extra swagger with a flattering fit. Aquaman star Jason Momoa and Captain America star Chris Evans proved that confidence is key when it comes to flexing on the red carpet—with both men sporting light-colored velvet suits that showed they can be just as daring off-screen. Is there anything Momoa can’t wear? No, because when you’re a badass, anything goes.

Not sure about going full-on velvet? Take a cue from Samuel L. Jackson, who just had a touch of velvet on his jacket lapel to instantly elevate his Oscars look. No matter how you decide to incorporate velvet into your cocktail attire, it’s a sure bet you’ll be one of the best-dressed men in any room. So go ahead, get inspired, and check out our top velvet looks from last night’s 2019 Oscars.
