Men in Suits at Pitti Uomo
Suits are what it's all about at Pitti. Why not rock a double breasted suit that will elevate your style. Here's an example below of a classic double breasted look, in light and dark blue. Personally, we dig the dark blue and brown features.
That said, pastel colours are very popular at Pitti Uomo. It's not rare to see someone sporting a pale blue or white suit.
When we say colour, we mean colour. This sartorially educated man takes a pink suit and makes it seem so casual and effortless. Maybe not the look if you don't want to stand out, but if you have some flair, it's on point.
Texture was a big theme this year, just take a look at this dapper chap. Go for a tweed number or seersucker suit to add texture and detail to your look.
It's all about standing out, and these bright yellow and subtle burgundy suits, do just that.
If you’re feeling daring enough, then go for a white suit. Adding colour and detail into your look with a few accessories will make all the difference, as this Pitti Peacock knows all about.
Playing around with both texture and colour will create a totally different look. This Pitti Uomo follower teams a darker yellow suit with a pinstripe waistcoat underneath in the same hue.
They say that nothing beats the classics, and these stylish guys no exactly that. Teaming classic pieces together whilst incorporating a modern twist never hurts.
Men in Patterned Suits at Pitti Uomo
Pattern is a big deal when you’re attending Pitti Uomo as it can get you photographed by all of those street style photographers. Keeping it casual whilst having the full impact of a patterned waistcoat, it creates a cracking and subtly detailed look.
If you’re really feeling the pattern, then you can always go for a full blown patterned blazer. Just remember to keep your outfit underneath simple, so it’s not too in-your-face.
And On That Note
Pitti Uomo, or Pitti Immagine is a great place to see some of the latest trends to hit the world of menswear. From slick suits to stylish and modern streetwear, Pitti has it all.
