Have you ever walked the streets of Milan? The place is a never ending high fashion spread. To emulate, go with a white or black casual suit cut a little loose, for that effortless 1960′s chic.
Think Marcello Mastroianni. If you haven’t already, go see Feederico Fellini’s 8 1/2 and La Dolce Vita. Not only are they two of greatest films of all time, but you get to watch Marcello and Anita Ekberg and Anouk Aimee- classic eye candy, pure and simple.
For more swag, ditch the Ray-bans and try out Marcello’s sporty, mysterious signature glasses. His are Prada Model SPR07F if you want to go all out, but an imitation pair will do the trick. Remember: tip those shades down every now and again with a sly grin, and soon you’ll be getting wet by a fountain in a foreign city with a beautiful bombshell.
Nora Ephron (American film director, producer, screenwriter, novelist, journalist, and author of witty rom coms such as When Harry Met Sally) said something very wise about the key to life, “The secret to life; marry an Italian.” Fellas, this sharp, sophisticated woman has a point- every girl wants their man to have a little Italian in them. Suit up.
Ciao for now.
