Dress for Aperitivo with An Acute Style

First, an admission: @AnAcuteStyle is not in Italy. But when Arianna goes out of her way to describe a not-too-stuffy-but-still-put-together outfit suitable for aperitivo al fresco in late summer, I think it’s fair to bend the boundaries a little bit – especially when the outfit in question would be at home anywhere drinks are drunk and salty

Outfit Inspiration: SprezzaTrash

SprezzaTrash (or Ethan), as you may know, is a big fan of thrifting and of vintage styles.

It’s hard to look good in the heat of summer. When August rolls around, most of us are more concerned with avoiding the heat or dreaming of autumn collections than we are with staying put together. That’s not the case for all of our members, though. As you’ll see from this gallery of great Styleforum

Dalila Palumbo is a young Italian designer with a very peculiar style. We spotted her during our last visit at Pitti Uomo, and we couldn’t stop taking pictures of her menswear-inspired outfits.

A cursory Google search for the phrase “four pattern bingo” cites its first usage in 2014 by StyleForum user Sugarbutch, but he actually used it two years earlier, of all places in a thread devoted toward conservative business dress.  Granted, he does hail from San Francisco, so there’s that.   The path of menswear usually
