Yes, the Oscars is when Hollywood's elite gets together to give themselves awards for making million-dollar films, but it's also an opportunity to have a legendary fashion moment. While most go straight for the formal black-tie garms, there are those individuals that go with brave choices that go down as iconic looks.

To help make those moments happen, you must take a step back to figure out how to maintain class while finding the beauty in being underdressed. Ibn Jasper once said: "It's better to be underdressed than overdressed". It's very true. Stepping out in a misjudged look can turn the night to tragedy, even if you happen to be clutching one of those gold statuettes. The media won't let a bad fit slide, so let us help you out.

Our brief guide to your Oscars outfit is below.

This could be an alternative to a suit jacket. Suede is luxurious and very Hollywood. I would suggest keeping it slim. Find a pair of well-tailored slim trousers, slightly hemmed with a beautiful brogue or clog.
