Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre’s strongest style moments

Go galactic

When: 13 July 2019

Why it works: Embellishment may first and foremost be associated with the festive season but, according to Sabrina Dhowre, it’s equally wearable for summer and we couldn’t agree more.

Arriving to the premiere of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, the pair took galactic dressing to a new level through a masterful blend of black, grey and silver garments.

For Dhowre, silver was absorbed through her striking floor-length dress, and for Elba, a single-breasted checked suit. Extra points for his single-toned shirt and tie combination.

Bring the fun through your fashion

When: 16 December 2019

Why it works: You can’t go wrong with simple couple dressing, especially when it’s in earthy tones.

Case in point: Elba and Dhowre’s arrival to the premiere of Cats last year, when the pair blended shades of navy, brown and black across their ensembles.

Top points to Elba especially here for that tailored overcoat, which worked brilliantly next to Dhowre’s stunning floor-length gown to elongate the silhouette.

Bring the fun through your fashion

When: 6 May 2019

Why it works: The main rule when it comes to couple dressing? Have some fun with it. Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre always do and the results are as stylish as they are eye-catching. A perfect example has got to be these outfits for the Met Gala last year, both of which brought pops of colour, pops of print and most definitely pops of glamour. Consider this your go-to reference for your next black-tie event. And don’t shy away from the statements – they’ll certainly be remembered. 

Classic glam always works

Confidence is key

Easy does it

Timelessness is key

Consider your textures
