If you follow any men’s style accounts on Instagram, I’m sure you are familiar with Pitti Uomo and all of it’s #menswear splendor. However, if you’re not, Pitti Uomo is a bi-annual international menswear trade show that takes place in Florence, Italy in January and June.

In my opinion, it’s basically every street style photographer’s dream but it’s also an inside look of the upcoming trends. Like most fashion-related events, it’s full of go-hards and pretenders, but there are also some seasoned veterans and style icons that attend the event as well.

Therefore, those are the ones that I look to for style inspiration. So here are 5 style tips that you can take away from Pitti Uomo 91!

The Odd Waistcoat

Don’t be afraid to pair an odd waistcoat with your suit. I’ve mentioned before that a waistcoat is one of the most versatile pieces in the game, and this is just one way that it can complete your look!

Neutral Overcoats

Having an overcoat in a neutral color is always best because that makes it even more versatile. In other words, you can pair it with almost any color suit or sweater!

Winter Whites

I usually would never suggest wearing white in the winter, especially you have to deal with the snow. However, rocking some off-white pieces can be the perfect substitute.

Bold Suits

I talk about this all time and I could never say it enough. If you’re going to wear a bold suit or blazer, always keep the shirt and tie simple!

Yellow Turtlenecks

This look proved that you don’t always have to be suited up to make a bold statement and be well dressed!


As always, thanks for reading and be sure to catch me at Pitti Uomo 92!
