Fashion Forward: Men's Fashion -- Ermenegildo Zegna
When it comes to men's fashions, guys, one suit and an old T-shirt and jeans just isn't going to cut it for fall. Men, you've got to look sharp, or should we say, ladies, here's how to make sure your man is Fashion Forward.
(WSVN) -- It suited Justine Timberlake at the MTV Music Awards.
Hats off to Ashton Kutcher at the Teen Choice Awards.
And stars James Gandolfini and Matt LeBlanc walked down the Emmys red carpet in style.
But you don't have to be a star to dress like one.
At Ermenegildo Zegna, classic is what men's fashion is all about... But this year the men's fashion house is catering to a younger customer.
Patti Rivero of Ermenegildo Zegna says, "It's going to be a little cleaner through the chest, a little higher in the armhole, it's going to be a sexier silhouette. The pant leg is more tapered, it's a very clean look."
At Zegna, classic suits are lined with color.
For a quick update, mix and match.
Patti says, "You can always change something with a knit, a v-neck, a turtleneck a mock neck. And that also gives you a lot of variety in a basic suit."
Try a khaki pant with a blue blazer or go for something more casual.
Patti adds, "You wear the jacket, a blue jean, a T-shirt or one of the dress shirts with a collar open and you achieve the same look but a little more casual."
At Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour, it's easy to look hip in this fall's latest trends.
Go for a bomber jacket with lots of zippers.
Or wear the hooded kind.
Splash on some color.
Or keep the look classic, but liven it up with a cap... Emmy winner and former sopranos' star Joe Pantiliano did at the Emmys.
Corina Biton of Neiman Marcus says, "In the past it was black pants for a Saturday night, jeans for during the day, a white T-shirt, black T-shirt and that was it for a man's options to go out. For this season, we have tons of color."
Show off your six pack abs in this silk, button down shirt.
Or in a printed top.
From this season's sport utility look...
To the rugged man... Men, with a few key pieces, you too can look like a million bucks.
Corina says, "Don't be afraid just go ahead and mix and match and you'll look fabulous."
"Anything goes for this season for me, they can have fun, great time."
Anything stripped... And the color brown are also must-haves.
