KEEP IT CLEAN, BUT NOT TOO CLEAN
Men’s Fashion Post, a popular fashion blog run by Eff Ulloa, is a true menswear bible. This comes as no surprise when you look at the man himself: sharp, elegant, yet unfailingly cool. As a result, he navigates effortlessly between casual and dressed up, tastefully manipulating details (here a shirt coming out of a sweater, there white sneakers paired with a suit) to create his own unique style.
Inspired by his aesthetic, here are four style tips to always get it right.
// MONOCHROME = ELEGANCE
Many of Ulloa’s looks focus on one single color—he tends to favor neutral tones such as black, white, or gray, but doesn’t turn his back on blue or khaki. Opting for a monochromatic outfit is both a safe and daring choice: it will always look tasteful, but will always catch the eye.
While dressing for everyday outings, sticking to monochrome will add an element of class that will instantly up your game. On more formal occasions, it will make you look even more put together and will place emphasis on the fabrics and cut of the outfit.
You can obtain an equally stunning effect if you depart from the monochrome to remain in the same color family; Ulloa does this beautifully with an off-white leather jacket paired with a white outfit. You could also go the bi-chromatic route (black and white work best for this).
