Stylist tips for the Top Gun look

>> Pair light and dark colours or tones to create a balanced outfit 
>> Stick to your mood board or the colour scheme to stay on the right aesthetic 
>> Play around with your accessories and remember to have fun. I personally invest in bold accessories and statement pieces to highlight any outfit.

How to get it right

To create any look, it’s important to first put down the colour scheme or the mood board to help understand the aesthetic that goes into it. I love developing stylised appearances using simple articles of clothing and accessorising, or layering the outfit. Thus, you can execute many looks with a few items. Consider the styling of the characters and the backdrop where the story unravels. For Top Gun: Maverick, I’ll be using colours like olive green, beige, brown, dark blue, black, and white. For fabrics and prints, I’ve taken military prints, baggy or utility pants, leather, and suede. This outfit is made from the basics that you’ll have in your wardrobe, or will be able to source from any local shopping centre. 

The outfit

An olive green shirt layered over a black tube or a simple black tee. Wear it over black utility or baggy pants. 

Accessories

Pair the look with silver chunky hoops, a black cap and combat boots.
