As the Formula 1 heroes descend into Northern Italy gearing up for the Monza Grand Prix, it’s time for you to get your bags prepped and packed with eye turning outfits. Located just a stone’s throw from Italy’s fashion capital that is Milan, it’s a given that the event won’t be a low-key affair and needn’t your wardrobe.
Make a Statement
Be set to make an impression amongst jet-setters, racing stars and elites alike with a killer piece. Work colour into your wardrobe, just like Moschino’s Fantasy print chiffon dress and wear it with confidence, just like the locals do. Jungle stripes, Hawaiian florals are favourites in the rankings at the moment, so follow suit and don’t go unnoticed.
Go from track days to thriving night parties in a pair of shoes that won’t just turn heads but allow your feet to be comfortable all day. The key is in the heel, providing it’s sturdy you’ll easily be able to make your way across the cobbled floors of Milan, with ease. Mules get our votes; they’re versatile, effortless and won’t let you down.
Elites and cool crowds won’t shy away from the parties come sundown and it goes without saying you’ll head to the privè post track. Why accessorise with the obvious when you can be stand out? Coach’s dinky teal bag transforms from a clutch to wear over the shoulder so you needn’t have the hassle of holding it all night.
Midi is More
Sometimes less is more (providing it’s done with class) and sometimes that comes in the form of a midi skirt. Whether it’s pleated, asymmetrical or just plain floaty, nothing says put together more than being paired with a tee, sunglasses and accessorized with delicate pieces. Alice and Olivia certainly know how to do jungle print on their latest skirt, the right way.
Rose Gold Accents
The Everose Gold Rolex Pearlmaster 39 marries the sport and dress watch, making it ideal for the Italian Grand Prix. Adorned with luxurious diamonds and Roman numeral dial, it’s curvy Pearlmaster bracelet is feminine and shines brighter than the racer’s alloys.
Casual cool is an unwritten rule when it comes to menswear. Nothing says unapologetic style more than a middle-aged man with low-crotch pants, cigarette in hand about to ride off on his Vespa. Who says you can’t do the same?
Keep it Casual
September in Italy can still feel like the height of summer, especially whilst you’re feeling hot under the collar at in the paddocks. Instead of a button down, a quality fit white tee looks crisp and casual whether you’re at the track or cooling off with a beverage in the evening.
As much as Italian women like to wear colour, so do the male-counterpart, which naturally comes as no surprise since they make it look so effortless. You needn’t wear a suit, tailored separates still manage to evoke a message of smart-casual without compromising on style. The Havana Rosa blazer by Suit Supply does exactly that.
Hopping around the city on your scooter to keeping it fresh on race day means comfortable footwear is a must. Given that in Italy uneven paving is almost at every street corner, sneakers are going to be your best friend. Don’t go for stark white and contrast too much with your outfit, style them out with different tones from your suit for added creativity just like Gucci’s Logo print pair.
Feel the Air
The Rolex Air-King is more than just a wrist-watch, it’s designed for speed and power. With a distinctive black dial and solid-link Oyster bracelet; the durability of this piece goes beyond its aesthetic, but a watch you can rely on.
