Dress Like a Showbiz Lawyer

Andrew McLeod

Ditch the buttoned-up courtroom attire in favor of a relaxed, confident style.

As a Hollywood attorney who has represented everyone from Jennifer Lopez to the Olsen twins, Stein takes a more laid-back approach to business attire. His daily uniform? A slim-fit, sharply tailored suit and open-collar shirt (though, of course, he'll put on a tie if he's going to court). He shops at Santa Monica men's store Sean's for his favorite Parisian designer Emile Lafaurie's collection. But while he sticks to classic navy, black and gray for the suits, he doesn't shy away from color and pattern for his shirts and ties. Says Stein: "It's OK for lawyers to dress casually if you still look nice when you do it."
