Oscars 2014 Red Carpet Trend: Men in White Jackets (PHOTOS)

Credit where credit’s due: Hollywood’s leading men have really been upping the ante on the red carpet this awards season. And on the biggest night, Oscars 2014, the gents were in top form. Though a few stars did opt for the traditional black tux, a few fun fellows weren’t afraid of trying out something unexpected: a white suit jacket!

The black and white trend was everywhere this year, with quite a few women in black (Charlize Theron, Anna Kendrick) and white (Kate Hudson, Kristen Bell). But the guys wanted to get in on the action, swapping out their black suit jacket for a white one. And it really worked!

Best Supporting Actor winner Jared Leto looked fly in Yves Saint Laurent, adding a pop of color with his burgundy bowtie. His Dallas Buyers Club co-star (and fellow Oscar winner!) Matthew McConaughey also rocked the look, with an added black pocket square and black vest underneath. Swoon!
