Having great style doesn’t mean fancy or complicated. Just because someone is wearing bright colors, aggressive patterns, or overly-stylized clothes doesn’t necessarily mean they inherently have great style. Pushing the style envelope and being confident enough to take chances has it’s place, of course, but in most cases, simplicity wins out. Whether you’re building your wardrobe for the first time or refining an already established sense of personal style, embracing a sense of simplicity always looks cool.
Take it from guys like Gregory Peck, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, and Paul Newman, these legendary style icons (not to mention, badasses) knew that simple and classic always looks phenomenal. A sharp grey suit or blazer, a crisp white shirt, and a simple, dark tie looked great then and it looks great today. Throw on a pair of dark sunglasses and add a little bit of attitude and you’re on your way. Embracing simplicity is no frills and exudes confidence. Having an incredible Ferrari doesn’t hurt either, of course.
