The American actor made a serious style move that we will be copying

Even if you're not planning to watch the It sequel, you should be replicating star Bill Skarsgard's red-carpet look.

Attending the premiere of the upcoming horror flick, Skarsgard not only sported white tie (by Louis Vuitton, FYI) for the outing, something we rarely ever see for a movie premiere these days, but he also made the serious move of ditching his tie.

And, sure, air ties (yes, that's what we are calling them) have been gracing the red carpet for some time, with Rami Malek and Ryan Gosling among those championing it, but this is the first instance we're aware of seeing it in conjunction with white tie. Regarded as the highest level of elegance by many, white tie is the undisputed champion of formality. To play with it is a simple but powerful move that few would dare to do. But as the rules depicting menswear become more fluid, we are hardly surprised that Skarsgard can and will ditch his bow tie.

So is this a trend we're about to see more and more of? We hope so. With party season approaching, we're recommending you do exactly the same. Need help? Below are the products you need to pull it off.
