The best and worst style ideas inspired by the looks shown by fashion influencers in Florence at Pitti Uomo, the first Italian event of 2017 for men’s fashion
Even if you would never change your man with anyone else in the world, it happened to you several times to take a look at his outfit thinking, “How the hell did you dress?” And how to blame you: sometimes these males have the innate ability to make style choices, how to say, questionable. To give you the right tips on how to dress up your he will think about the street style looks of Pitti 91, home of men’s fashion: discover which items to copy and those to avoid certain that, with these tips, your man will no longer be the same.
THE COAT IS IN
Elegant and timeless, the double-breasted coat is one of those men’s fashion garments that can not miss in the men’s wardrobe. With classic charm, it can be made contemporary if chosen in unusual shades, like this cream color. The extra touch? Combine it with a tailored suit in dusty nuances, like ash blue.
THE COAT IS OUT
As much as the dressing gown is trendy for women’s fashion, it’s another story for man. It’s okay to be original and have a look that goes beyond the jacket and tie, but giving the impression of being just out of the shower, for a male, is not the best of style.
THE HAT IS IN
How to forget the elegance of Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca? A look that has remained in the memory of many of us and that is partly responsible for our ideal male outfit, whose distinctive trait, in addition to the inevitable trench coat, was the fedora hat. An accessory that never goes out of fashion.
THE HAT IS OUT
Leaving aside the fact that this look is wrong on all fronts (no to the anonymous sweatshirt and trousers of two larger sizes, not to mention the crumpled bomber), the element that outweighs most is the hat: a woolen beanie that leave your ears uncovered. You do not want your guy to look like a garden gnome, do you?
THE TAILORED SUIT IS IN
More elegant than you can not: even if a bit ‘too formal, this look is one of those you can not not recommend to him. Above all for one reason: the complete sartorial tartan. The extra touch? Choose it in a discreet shade, so that the print is only mentioned.
THE TAILORED SUIT IS OUT
It’s okay to be sought after, matched and well dressed, but when the look looks like it’s been studied in a dot there’s something that does not work. In this outfit everything is too: burgundy color everywhere (the coat, the gloves, the print of the dress) matched with the blue of the tie and the lines of the suit. The most wrong thing of all, however, is the tailor-made dress in a multicolor version: a look worthy of a contemporary Marlon Brando in the godfather.
THE GILET IS IN
Classic, it is good for an adult man as well as a boy. To be copied the one chosen by Alessandro Squarzi, a permanent presence at Pitti Uomo: beige and simple, without frills, to be played down with a check duster.
THE GILET IS OUT
As warm and welcoming, if the gilet seems knitted by the aunt, it is better to leave it in the shop: nothing worse than trying to look chic by making a style slide.
THE DETAIL IS IN
A pair of leather gloves, in addition to being a valuable ally in the coldest days of the year, can give a more marvel to your man’s style: to evaluate a particular model, like this leather color rich in details and stitching.
THE DETAIL IS OUT
It’s okay to want to stay warm, but the fur collar, moreover on a man, is too much: better to opt for a scarf in cashmere, enveloping and always in fashion.
