The French know how to do casual chic so follow their lead for a much-coveted afternoon look.
Once and again you fall into a fashion conundrum, we get you. It’s not easy looking stylish all the time, especially for men who need to change their game every day. Unlike the art crowd that can get away with wearing all black, all the time, you have to figure out ways to create your very own uniform, without falling into the same pattern over and over again.
One of my favorite easy and relaxed looks draws inspiration from the French. A long heritage of stylish masterminds like Picasso and Cocteau has left us with statement pieces and a certain attitude about wearing them. You don’t need to be French to wear a suit with sneakers, nor Italian for that matter. All you have to do is follow the tricks and get your fashion kicks:
· One of the best investments you will ever make in your wardrobe is to get a great quality mariniere shirt. Well, two or three different ones wouldn’t hurt, really… This one here has the form and shape of a summer sweater that you can also wear without a blazer and still look dressed up.
· Choose a slim fit pair of trousers that will help you move around gracefully. The man of the hour needs to be comfortable and quick.
· Take out those sneakers we have been urging you to buy since the start of the season. Yes, that white, crisp pair that matches everything. See how great the ensemble (usage of French language, intended) falls into place?
