I love how Armani makes your appearance look great without having to try to hard to impress. I especially like the way they have complete looks ready to 1) help you mix and match the clothes, 2) understand how patterns, colors, styles, etc. fit your style, and 3) inspire you to look at other clothing (even your own) and infuse that style into your mentality.
Take for example Armani’s Spring Look for men. Armani shows you different looks on how to wear their spring line in a fresh, more modern feel. Mixing traditional pieces and styles with a modern flair is sure to keep your style funky fresh and hip. While I know some would probably not want to have a modern look, or even have the body shape for a modern look, you can still take clues from their designs and implement them to your own creative style to make it your own look.
Let’s say that you may not like the track pants mixed with yellow v-neck sweater and blue blazer (and yes I can understand that) in this spring look. So why not re-design that look to suit your taste? Take out the drawstring pants and replace that with linen pants (for summer) or a darker bootcut denim jeans. Mix and match that with the blazer and a fresh white tee or pastel polo pique. If you’re still in chilly weather in the spring (think Seattle nowadays when it’s snowing in late March), go for a cashmere v-neck sweater of your choice of color (or crew-neck if you wish), denim jeans, and Kenneth Cole boots to boot. Or better yet, replace the sweater and add a sleek long-sleeved graphic tee and top it with a mixed hoodie blazer.
You really can’t go wrong with it all. All you need to have is a defined perspective on what you want to get, and then tailor the clothes to meet what you want. Don’t settle for anything less!
