Dandy-styled producer DJ Cassidy made a surprise appearance alongside Jessie J at Capital FMs Summertime Ball and definitely upstaged the usual style icon in the fashion stakes. The New York born Calling All Hearts artist has played at Obama’s 50th Birthday Party and Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Weddings, to name but a few ‘small’ events, so the Summertime Ball must have been a walk in the park for him.
Known for his Sapeur style with pastel tuxedos and suits, Cassidy certainly stands out on a red carpet. If you’re not as daring as DJ Cassidy perhaps style up your usual blazer and shirt combos with a splash of colour, like with this Hugo Boss light pink Herringbone Jacket, from £380 at Selfridges.
DJ Cassidy adds a casual touch to his stand-out suits by pairing them with classic polos such as this one from Lacoste. Style the polo with the buttons undone for a cool and collected look to offset your stylish suit.
Most importantly DJ Cassidy pays attention to detail when styling his image. So to fully steal his style, gold accessories are a must. By layering pieces like this vintage reclaimed Lion Medallion from ASOS £20 and this Metal Chain necklace from Topman £5 you can affordably recreate his dapper style.
Finally if you want to steal DJ Cassidy’s style, you must not be caught without his signature go to piece; a Boater. So for £14, with this straw Boater from ASOS, you can make sure of this!
