When it comes to Halston’s personal style, he would often sport black and white ensembles with expertly cut essentials like blazers and turtlenecks. He rarely deviated from this palette and typically kept his accessory game minimal.

The designer layered a crisp white blazer over a black turtleneck paired with sleek black trousers. It’s the perfect ensemble for hanging out in New York City with Liza Minnelli, naturally.

Every man needs at least one well-tailored tuxedo. Bonus points if you recognize his photo companion (hint: he almost made Carrie move to Paris in the Sex and the City finale).

Halston was going for bold eyewear long before the celebs and influencers of today, like Harry Styles and Elton John. These black, oval-shaped sunnies paired flawlessly with a standard suit and tie.

Surprise, surprise: another black turtleneck. The cream suit added a sophisticated contrast, and the black scarf — draped ever so casually over his shoulders — was the pièce de résistance.

Halston had a clear penchant for monochromatic everything and his accessory of choice was the skinny scarf, which set the tone for men styling their looks with everything from cloth scarves to boas.

Halston’s legacy lives on as one of the most influential figures in modern fashion, who had a hand in bringing items like halter dresses, shirt dresses, and caftans to the masses.
