Italians are famously known for their fashion sense which is driven by expressionism and refinement. These two elements are at the core of having a unique dress sense. When considering your style don’t be swayed by other people’s opinion of what your style should be or side-tracked by fashion trends. Start with considering a well-fitted suit because nothing can beat a man in his modern day armoury.
Dressing well is easier than you may think. Simplicity is a must but there is a common misconception that you have to be elaborative to stand out – I don’t necessarily agree. An inspirational example of this is Waris Ahluwalia. He has so much style it’s unreal. He can wear a suit and a plain white shirt with three buttons undone and he absolutely oozes class – making him one of the world’s best dressed! Away from him breaking down racial boundaries with his photo shoot with GAP, there is no surprise about how much he has achieved.
In the picture above, the concept was simple “a group of fashionable Singhs in suits” – yet the shoot makes me speechless every time I look at it. Why? Because it’s the simplicity of the concept and a portrayal of Singh Gentleman Style on show, which is only brought to life by each individual’s personality coming through. I wanted to create a photo shoot that showed the world that we aren’t merely existing or surviving in the western world, but we are striving and prospering.
So if you are looking for inspiration to dress well, the first tip I would give is to strike the perfect balance between keeping it simple and being daring all the same. Don’t use clothes to hide your personality, but use them to express it. Go seize the day, and be the best version of you.
