THE PERFECT NUMBER IN ELEGANCE? NUMBER 3
Mistakes never to make:
❌Too bright colors ❌Suit fabric best matched only with suit fabrics
Well yes, I must confess that I made some mistakes when I was a younger about the colors I wore. Sometimes I looked like a rainbow without realizing it. However, woe if I hadn’t made them; I experienced on my own skin that being overly colored like peacocks is not good; unless you are a peacock!
The mistakes I will never make again in my life is mixing too many patterns with too many colors.
Match bright colors but in harmony
With the very first white hair I realized that wearing more than three colors, maybe even strong and bold, becomes almost dangerous; elegance is balance and harmony without excess
Elegant but distinctive
So besides the few colors, I would also say no exaggeration in terms of different textures. So is the split: let it be bold but beware of doing inelegant splits such as pinstripe jacket and plain pants; the reason? It would be inelegant!
The same can be applied to little spezzati; avoid the confetti effect!
And always remember: the stronger the color you wear, the more informal and sporty it is!
Elegant but with unusual tie that makes a difference!
Rather the refined and elegant eccentricity passes between socks, ties and pocket-squares….
…in fact here are a few examples chosen by Gianni that allows elegance and pleasant vintage diversity at the same time!
