The look can easily go feminine, as Kerr proved during Paris Fashion Week in a Stella McCartney snake-print coat from the Resort 14 collection, Frame Denim Le Luxe Noir Jeans ($209), and Miu Miu’s Bow-Embellished Patent-Leather Loafers ($595).

During Paris Fashion Week, Dello Russo played up the trend’s dapper origins in head-to-toe Celine. We love that the look has a bit of a barbershop quartet vibe.
