A celebrity in his own way, Lapo Elkann is the heir to the Fiat fortune and a regular fixture on international best dressed lists. He’s credited with reviving the Fiat brand and has inherited his grandfather’s (Gianni Agnelli) impeccable sense of style.
With a nickname like “Lapo of luxury”, it’s no surprise that his wardrobe is otherworldly.
If you don’t have thousands upon thousands to spend on clothes each season, you can still achieve this look. The first step is colour. By now, you should have the basic blacks, greys, and blues in your closet. Add a bit of colour to your wardrobe, and if you’re strapped for cash, you can always pair up with colourful socks, ties, and accessories.
Like Lapo, focus on a range of colours that look best on you. Balance this out with neutrals, and make sure everything is well-fitting. Nothing’s worse than being the guy in bright colours and poorly fitted clothes. Yechh.
Best worn for social events, suits with bold details like the broad peak lapels on a double breasted suit below are the perfect way to have fun and show some personality through fashion.
For a casual look, Elkann keeps it clean and as always, well fitting. Shorts that fall just above the knee should be a staple in every guy’s closet.
