June marks my favourite time of year. We are off to enjoy a month of sun, Peroni & fine suiting at Pitti Uomo, plus with the temperate dropping, it's time I update my wardrobe with some lavish, extravagant garments.
We thought it would be helpful if we listed some key items to include in your suitcase this year if you're heading over to Florence for Pitti Uomo or are just planning a European getaway sometime soon.
A bold sports jacket is a must for the European summer. Try an electric blue with white buttons.
A key European staple. Perfectly paired with a navy blazer, dress up or down and keeps you cool.
Packing shoes is always a difficult task and with little room in your suitcase, we recommend taking a versatile pair of loafers such as Crockett & Jones from Double Monk. These are comfortable and by choosing a deep brown pair, we assure you they will be suited to most outfits.
Definitely one not to forget, with the harsh sunshine and photographers snapping every move, make sure you include a reflective pair of sunglasses. I just bought a pair of Thom Browne.
Beads were big in 2015 and are still around this year. We are seeing a lot of leather bracelets and gold beaded bracelets being worn too.
Stay tuned as we will be traveling with Peroni giving you all the best looks and events #PeroniStyle throughout Pitti Uomo 90.
