WHAT ABOUT SHOES?
"Sneakers are essential and really work in all situations, but then it’s a matter of taste if you want to go for a slip-on, a runner or a classic trainer. I also think you’ll need a pair of leather shoes, be it derbies, oxfords or brogues. A change of shoes can transform an entire outfit."
"I actually think you should have a pair of low leather shoes, for example loafers or brogues. And something more feminine like pumps or ballerina slippers. Also, make sure your shoes work together with the silhouette of the trousers and the overall look."
WHAT RULES ABOUT COLOUR DO I NEED TO KNOW?
"You only need one advice: All men look good in navy. Besides that, have in mind that if you are light-skinned, it’s harder to pull off strong accent colours. And if you’re a bit bold try green, more men than you would think look good in green."
"There are all these old rules of thumb that are totally outdated. For example, back in the days, it was forbidden to mix cold and warm colours, but that can be super stylish."
HOW DO I PULL OFF SOMETHING A BIT MORE EDGY?
"Keep the rest of the outfit very basic. It’s easier to make one special item work at a time."
"Give it time, be patient. Get used to it by wearing it at home a couple of times, waiting for the right occasion."
WHEN NOTHING WORKS, WHAT TO DO?
"Go for something black – that’s always safe. I call black a mood colour, works in every mood. I mean, if you were sad, you wouldn’t want to dress all white."
"Stay home! Haha. No, just remember that this happens to everyone. You can’t be perfect every day, can’t win them all. Go back to basics and start over with jeans, t-shirt and a jacket."
