His stream-lined black pants and black shoes were a sophisticated way to complete the outfit's classic fashion statement.
The final touch was the fresh yellow daffodil pinned to his blazer. The flower added a pop of colour to the outfit that set Ledet apart for fashion from competitors such as Phillip Phillips, who wore grey and olive green on the same American Idol night.
The blazer was a unique fashion piece with the striping and fit perfectly to Joshua Ledet's slim profile. The pleats of the blazer created a fitted look as he walked the the television stage. The singer is in style as pleats are a popular fashion trend for the spring season. The outfit translated well onto the television screen.
