The New Rules of Jewelry

It's safe to say that maybe, what, 0.01% of the population has a body like Dwayne Johnson? You don't get the nickname "The Rock" and get to star in movies called Rampage by looking like every other dude. But that doesn't mean you can't still learn a thing or two from the guy from a style perspective. Because, despite his massive size, Johnson dresses incredibly well. Having stylist Ilaria Urbinati, responsible for making guys like Tom Hiddleston and Chris Evans look extra-good, on the payroll certainly doesn't hurt. And together, the pair have narrowed in on just the kind of looks The Rock can pull off exceptionally well. He's a fan of nitro-grade, custom-made Italian tailoring, and one look we're willing to call his signature: bicep-hugging sweaters worn with tailored pants. If your upper body is muscular, if not in WWE wrestler territory, incorporating these looks into your office wardrobe means good things will happen. The latter option is especially handy if you work in the sort of place where suits aren't the norm.
As Jimmy Kimmel pointed out when Johnson appeared on his show yesterday, the look takes a certain physique to pull off. "I'm looking at you and I'm just imagining what I would look like if I wore that sweater," he said as The Rock took his seat. "It would look like I bought half a sack of potatoes." Which isn't entirely wrong. When your gut is bigger than your guns, clingy knitwear isn't the most flattering thing in the world. If you've been hitting the gym religiously, on the other hand, an ultra-fine merino or cashmere sweater is a nice break from beaten-up button-down shirts and suffocating blazers. Best of all: it shows off your hard work without preventing you from doing your job.
In terms of what to wear with your collection of form-fitting sweaters, pick trousers that skim over your quads instead of clinging to them. You don't want to go tight on bottom and top. And make sure your pant hem has little to no break at the ankle. Nothing makes a big guy look short and squat like a too-long pant leg. Here, three relatively affordable, Dwayne Johnson-approved combinations to try. Go ahead and buy all three if you're feeling motivated. God knows you've earned them.
