Italian is the only Language in the world with “sprezzatura” word. Sprezzatura is defined as art of looking exceptionally exquisite while making it seem effortless. Have you ever wondered what is the secret of an Italian Men’s effortless Elegance? Here are the 10 steps that would flaunt an Italian Man in you.
Buy a classic suit – An Italian knows the importance of investing in a flawlessly cut suit. Bespoke Italian Jacket has a finishing at waist with slim shoulders; trousers tend to be narrow and the shirts are cut to fit near to body, but not so tight that will malfunction.Not to mention, Armani and Roberto Cavalli suits are style statements of gentleman of any age.
Italy is always Sunny – Have that perception even if it is not! Italian man has taken a functional accessory and transformed it into a fashion essential. That could be the reason why world’s finest sunglasses are made in Italy. Go for überstylish tortoise shell frames.
Put on Loafers without socks – It’s totally kosher to show off a hint of ankle, especially on Casual Fridays or weekends. Bring out sophistication in you with tapered pants and soft cardigan. Your pant should slightly graze the top of shoe or lay above it
Play with Colours – Trousers in red, dark green or yellow – not something a man can take so immediately. So be gradual with small doses while injecting color into your outfits, socks or phone cover could be a good start. That will develop in you and you will end up rocking Saffron blazer with white jeans.
Rock a pocket square – There are less chances of wiggling around when it comes to men’s accessories. That is why make each piece of your accessory count. You might find it okay to match a pocket square and a tie but why not give it a try and go wild with profuse pattern? That is easy way to add dash to your personality.
Retire those slogan T-shirts – No Elegant Italian would be caught wearing a Tshirt that has slogans like “Let’s tweet” or “I’m a virgin”. Even combined with biker jacket, a slim-fit checks shirt outshines a graphic tee.
Learn from real men – The best of motivation comes from the most convenient media form – blogs. Italian Men are fashion blogger favorites. And most of their posts are covered with street styles which usually come out of capturing the dashing brand loyal outside men’s fashion week in Milan or fairs in Florence. Learn from the visuals. Flip through magazines or online stores and see the best options available.
Go for leather pants – It is not a child’s play to pull off leather trousers but Italians have been doing it successfully. Put your rebel fantasies out with dark grey hoodie and bunch of drapes. Keep in mind: nothing but a perfect fit is Good Go with Leather trouser. ( y’all know that Madonna and Lady Gaga rocked Shiny Leather Pants!)
Doesn’t miser on the detail – Layering is an art. Chose your clothes wisely and keep right proportions. For example, do not make it too much or too little. Let it be perfect. For Example, you can go for Skinny pants, White slim shirt, and light blue blazer and aviator green shaded glasses completed by golden watch.
