Italian Style Made Easy

The two main components to achieving the art of Italian style are simplicity and elegance. Classically tailored cuts and carefully selected fabrics lend comfort to the style of men from Milan to Lake Como. The common threads you see are lightweight fabrics that move with ease, classic and versatile tonal variations, and neutral colors that pair easily. Finally, you tie it all together with the right belt (genuine leather is a favorite) and simple accessories.

Lightweight Fabrics

Italy is hit with scorching summers and a wide range of temperatures in the winter. Cottons or silk blends, are a perfect option to combat the heat of an Italian summer with their lightweight and comfortable feel. Keeping the look refined is the true art of Italian style. Pair your cotton or silk shirt with your favorite jeans or chinos for the perfect look.

Tonal Dressing

If you’re traveling to the Dolomites or the Sicilian Beaches, your wardrobe can benefit from leaning into a specific color. The most popular Italian street style is coordinating different blues across an outfit. Pairing a sky blue polo with a navy linen suit or navy blazer goes a long way in elevating your look to the level of Mediterranean effortlessness you’re looking for. Tonal dressing is an easy way to incorporate your favorite shoes without overdoing it. If you have a pair of deep navy suede shoes, you can pair them with a dark navy blazer and light blue polo, and any shade of blue pants to keep your look monochrome but dynamic.

Neutrals on Neutrals

Tie your look together by sticking to neutral tones that let your personal style shine. From light tans to deep gray, any neutral color scheme will keep you looking fresh in every city. Make getting dressed easier by finding the right neutral and pairing it with an all-white tee or black button-down. Remember, the key to a Mediterranean-inspired style is simplicity.

Keep it simple with a beaded bracelet paired with a beaded necklace. Another simple example is a gold watch without an intricate design. Ensure your accessories complement your outfit instead of becoming the stars. By pairing simple jewelry with your looks, you can create a put-together outfit easily. Make them staples in your go-to wardrobe. The other accessory you should always consider is genuine leather belts or shoes. Even suede complements every luxurious look you could make!
