The style of Justin Bieber has changed a lot in recent years, he went from being the boy who shook his long fringe in the videos, to a sophisticated adult who has managed to create a personal style and show that you can combine the casual with the elegant and the classic with the risky or irreverent.
Now we can see him wearing perfect (and not boring) suits, a great collection of hoodies and pants, and the sneakers that everyone wants to have, but the fact that he has improved and matured does not mean that he does not make mistakes, and his look of the Met Gala 2021 It is one of the proofs that everyone can be wrong about fashion issues (although the good thing is that it helps us to learn important lessons).
The theme of Met Gala 2021 it was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, and apparently very few understood what it was about. The point was to show the evolution, influences and essence of American fashion over the years, and Justin Bieber decided to explore that through a look from his own clothing brand (which now also has suits).

Suits with sneakers, what not to do
Bieber appeared on the Gala of the Metropolitan Museum of New York wearing a look from his Drew House, which is the brand he created with his brother, consisting of a double-breasted jacket, some very baggy pants (and long), a white shirt, a briefcase (like a school boy) and we tennis Air Force 1, which is his favorite model of the moment.
Bieber was not the worst dressed at the gala, but his outfit is all that can go wrong when combining tennis with a suit.
First, what can be seen from the shirt makes it clear that it is too long, then we have the jacket that crosses strangely and, finally, we have the pants that, beyond being wide leg (which is a preferred trend of Harry Styles), they look shapeless, which makes it seem like everything is too big, and the shoes don’t look as good as they could.
The sneakers that he chose are a different version of a classic that can be worn with suits, but, since the pants are too long, you can barely see them, in addition to that it makes him step on the pants and it seems that he does not He had time to go to the tailor to adjust the details necessary for the outfit to work.

The tennis shoes also do not match the style of the accessories (Bieber carry a gold watch that looks out of place and some cufflinks that don’t add much to the look), and all this makes us think that maybe the look was not finished and she had to put it like that due to lack of time.
Pairing tennis shoes with suits works and can even be done at an event like the Met Gala (which is elegant, but in a more free and creative way), but, if you are going to do it, you must keep in mind a few things: you should not wear pants that almost completely cover the tennis shoes, nor should you allow the fabric to drag on the ground and tread, and it is very important that you try to find a good balance between the level of elegance and sophistication of your outfit and your shoes.
What’s more, the most important lesson here is very basic: When you are going to combine casual and formal, the cut and the way the presses fit you are the most important. In Bieber’s case, it was the cut of his pants that made many think that he was wearing Crocs instead of tennis shoes, and he even had to pull his pants up a bit so that the design he created for his sneakers could be seen.
In conclusion, don’t be like Justin Bieber in this case and avoid wearing the wrong pants when wearing tennis shoes.
