Idris Elba Masterfully Coordinates Sparkling Top With Sleek Sneakers on ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Idris Elba turned “The Tonight Show” into a party on Monday night. The actor sat down with late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon to chat about his new movie “Beast” and his work on Jay-Z’s “American Gangster” album and Paul McCartney’s “McCartney’s III Imagined” album. Elba also shared the songs he would play in various situations and got candid about DJ’ing at the royal wedding.

“Beast” officially hits theaters on Aug. 19. Elba plays a recently widowed father of two teenage girls who travel to a South African game reserve. What begins as a journey of healing soon turns into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of bloodthirsty poachers, begins stalking them.

Elba showcased his signature sartorial prowess for the appearance. The “Luther” star wore a sparkling black top. The loose-flitting garment had a wide collar with short-sleeves and a slightly pointed hem. He paired the button-down shirt with navy blue pants.

Completing Elba’s look was a pair of chunky white sneakers. White sneakers remain as the ideal go-to casual sneaker. The right pair of white kicks can offer endless versatility. The eternally stylish silhouette is timeless and manages to be simultaneously on-trend every season.
