A Very Good Outfit.

No fabric says "summer" quite like linen—a memo which Brad Pitt has received loud and clear.

I'll admit the World War Z actor doesn't usually make the cut for my top sources of fashion inspiration, but it's 2022, and anything is possible.

The celeb stepped out onto the red carpet in Berlin, Germany for a Bullet Train screening, and absolutely nailed the linen skirt suit look—an easy, breezy hot weather look that is, quite frankly, genderless.

Pitt paired a chocolate brown linen jacket and skirt with a dusty rose linen button-down, all by very exclusive designer Haans Nicholas Mott, who has designed all of Pitt's looks for the Bullet Train promo so far, according to Paper.

He paired the outfit with chunky, lace-up combat boots—showing off the slightly eerie tattoos on his calves—and accessorized with some horn-rimmed sunglasses and a chunky gold chain and pendant.

As Paper points out, this isn't the first time Pitt has rocked a skirt or two—though it does feel like the first time he has done it seriously, as a true fashion statement rather than just a bit of fun.

In 1999, he posed for Rolling Stone in a series of patterned, sequined, and otherwise glittery mini-dresses. The looks were branded as "outpitts," which, LOL.

As for Bullet Train, it's an action movie in which Pitt stars alongside Joey King, Sandra Bullock and Zazie Beetz. The flick comes out in theaters on August 5, a classic summer blockbuster if there ever was one.
