The 2018 Tribeca Film Festival kicked off last week, which means that hordes of celebrities are flocking to New York to screen their newest cinematic offerings for fans and critics alike. Among their number is Ansel Elgort, whose film Jonathan premiered over the weekend. It's a sci-fi-ish indie about two personalities sharing the same body and the (seemingly inevitable) conflicts that arise. 

But we're not here to talk about that. We're here to talk about this outfit.

Elgort's look is all Alexander McQueen, and as one might expect, it's not for the faint of heart. A double-breasted burgundy suit with flared legs isn't exactly an intro-level style move, after all. But if you're looking to channel the young actor's vibe—and we'd recommend you do just that—the place to be looking is at his feet.

Those chunky, dad shoe-inspired runners are the biggest thing happening—both figuratively and literally—in the sneaker world right now. You can turn up the volume and wear them with a bold suit if you like, but you can also wear them with something simple like jeans and a field jacket to lean into the dad-ish feel. Either way, as Blue Oyster Cult advises, don't fear the sneaker. (Sorry, sorry...I couldn't resist.)
