This past weekend, fashion photographer Tommy Ton was out doing some style stalking at mens fashion week Pitti Uomo in Florence. Men (and women) braved the cold weather in their finest, and denim fashion was aplenty. We loved the casual juxtaposition between desaturated jeans and sartorial suiting complements as much as the use of denim jackets and dark wash jeans as the key element to a dressed up ensemble. Nobody was trying to show off. Right.

Not feeling dark shades this winter? We aren’t either! But lets face it, sometimes it’s hard not to result to black during the cooler seasons. An easy way to keep your wardrobe on the bright side is to mix and match different shades of denim and by adding interest to any look with interesting prints and patterns. Mohcine Aoki does just that by styling a cool fair isle sweater with a not so matchy, matchy double denim ensemble (we really dig his light washed denim jacket!). To ensure you keep things bright, style in accessories with pops of color and in warmer shades like brown instead of black.

Wearing camouflage can be pretty tricky (and sometimes even impossible!). Stylish and always casual-cool Mohcine of Morocco shows us how to sport the print the right way without looking like you’re ready to get your Rambo on.

Color has no expiration date in our book especially when it comes to looking fashionable—what works, works! And that definitely includes white (don’t say we didn’t warn ya). This street style snap goes to show that all white can still be a total fashion do. A buttoned light wash denim jacket, short brim hat (totally 80s), and a pop of color with a cognac round-toe shoe makes this guys all white outfit look young and modern. Will you be wearing white this fall? We think yes!

We’ve obviously been all about color lately, but even we can’t deny how totally killer this monotone look by blogger Jim Dumont of France is. Monotone definitely doesn’t equal boring, and here’s your proof. We can’t stress how crucial it is to add interest strategically when you’re rocking a simple ensemble, and Jim’s DIY bleached out jeans do the trick. The tie dye jeans add enough character to land him a spot on stage in a nu-wave punk band, and subtle styling details like his rolled sleeves and buttoned-all-the-way-up shirt keep it retro. The combat boots and John Lennon glasses are the icing on the cake. This look says rebel yell all over it.
