5 EASY WAYS TO LOOK A BIT MORE ITALIAN
Because Italians know how to get dressed. Steal these style tricks and feel a bit like them (and look awesome).
In our pursuit of summer and warmer weather, we turned our head against our most beloved country when it comes to style: Italy. This country got it all. Not only well-dressed men and women, awesome handmade leather shoes and enviable weather, but the country also got this special vibe to it. Like it’s just a part of their DNA to be enjoy life in this simple, yet powerful way. We guess it’s easy with all that great food and wine they serve? So how do you feel a bit more Italian yourself? Well, it all starts with the way you dress. Here are five quick tips on how to be a little bit more Italian.
1. Rock White and Beige
A suit is as Italian as it gets. Most men wear it daily (why isn’t this that way in Copenhagen?). But to dress even more Italian, you have to take it up a notch. Do this by choosing a bright color like beige and white. It might feel intimidating at first, but once you get use to this, it will be among your favorite colors to wear.
2. Wear Bracelets
Italians like accessories like ties and pocket squares. But that is not all they. Walking the streets of Italy, it is almost impossible not to notice the amount of bracelets you see on men’s wrist. It looks amazing and it’s an easy way of adding a personal touch to your everyday uniform.
3. The Army Jacket
This jacket is a favorite of ours. It’s easy to wear on top of most shirts and it even works over a blazer as well. Use it to add some coolness to your classic looks. Works great with a light pair of chinos or white denims for example.
4. The Tie
Bright colors – check. Bracelets – check. An army jacket – check. Now comes the tie. Of course. Making an article about dressing like an Italian without including a tie is almost like talking about the greatest wines and not to include France. What we like about Italian men wearing a tie is how they can wear it in this casual way. Think unconstructed blazers, cargo pants and suede shoes as a way of doing this. But nonetheless, you should wear a tie.
5. Blue Tones That Are Not Navy
When in doubt, go for blue. At least, that seems like the Italian trick. But don’t always go to navy. Wearing different tones of blue is an easy way of looking more fly than most. Like this light-blue linen suit. Perfect for the warmer days that we hopefully will get soon.
