“The inspiration for the look was ’90s supermodel with an easy elegance and lots of movement,” Peter told E! News. “I wanted the hair to look and feel super healthy with a high shine.”
Kelsea Ballerini’s boyfriend wore a navy blue shirt that featured white piping on the sleeves. He paired the cool look with matching pants and a short-sleeve white undershirt. Chase held Kelsea as they snapped photos together. They looked so happy during their first public outing.
