 “Dressing well without much effort requires one to just experiment with anything and everything. I think it’s a matter of being comfortable…there’s no need to go over the top with anything. As for pulling off a casual look, you have to know yourself and what you’re comfortable in. I find myself more comfortable in suits so I tend to wear those a lot, along with a fashionable hat.”

 “It’s about combining a classy top with a new pair of shoes that stand out. Pastel neutral tones always tend to work. What I find is that if you wear matching shoes and pants and make your shirt or sweater stand out, [it] usually evokes the casual “look,” or just pick one item of clothing to stand out while the other two match. I think that always looks nice.”

Typical Outfit: The Elegant European

 -Moccasins

-Moschino pants

-Mao collared shirt

-A wool cardigan

 1. Lacoste (541 Broadway)
