the many shady street styles of: Jesse Williams

image via We Heart it.
He's Rhianna love interest (Russian Roulette), he's a doctor (Grey's Anatomy) and now a college student running from Zombie's in desolate mountains (Cabin in the Woods).  Regardless of what his current status is, his street style is pretty cool. Simple grey slacks, white dress shirt, black oxfords, and classic black frame glasses make one dapper combo.

No need to hide behind those wood-detailed sunglasses. Interesting fact about Jesse Williams: He graduated with a degree in African American Studies and Film &Media Arts from Temple University. Later teaching American Studies, African Studies, and English at a Philadelphia public high school following a brief modeling career in college and before being bitten by the acting bug.

Dapper. Looks like Jesse Williams repurposed his baby blue dress shirt and navy blue blazer for a more formal men's look. If you haven't seen Cabin in the Woods yet, Jesse William's most recent film, GO. Ladies AND Gentleman, you won't regret it.
