Rarely do Hollywood’s male stars make big statements on the red carpet — black tuxedos are still the industry standard. So we were more than happy to see a few of the guys stepping out of the box.

Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Seacrest all opted for white jackets and black pants for this year’s Oscars and boy, did they look handsome.

While McConaughey and Seacrest kept things simple with black and white accents (black neckties, vest and pocket squares), Leto went for a brighter take — a red bow tie! — to complement his beautiful ombré hair.

We’re loving this dapper trend and we hope to see more men adopting it soon.

What do you think of these stars’s white jackets? Do you think it works well for the Oscars?

It’s not called a white blazer– it’s called a dinner jacket! It’s been around for eons. Good grief, this is a fashion post and you don’t know the menswear term dinner jacket? Just trendy this year.

They are called “Dinner Jackets”.

I don’t care what they’re called, they all looked so handsome! I love the way Jared amped his up with the red bow tie, he is so gorgeous … I know a lot of people don’t like his long hair, but I love it. I am also jealous of it, lol.

Jared has been spot on for all of the awards shows and didn’t disappoint at the Oscars. I love when he wears YSL.

Matthew said neither had any idea what the other was wearing. I thought they were gorgeous & were easy to spot! ;)

Jared rocked it the best with the red tie and pocket square! Although they all looked great. He has really brought his A-Game this Awards Season. Always making fashion headlines, whether it was his awesome YSL jacket, silk scarf or ‘man bun’ etc. :-)
