Stylish & talented: Cool men from Austria

My fashion style is characterized by understatement with a fashionable twist. I feel most comfortable with a good mix of sporty nonchalance and minimalist elegance.

Never without: white sneakers. My girlfriend keeps telling me to sort out one of the 100 pairs. I always say you can never have enough of these.

I find my inspiration on: Instagram, in various fashion magazines or simply on the streets of different European cities.

I'm leaving out this trend this year: I really like the integration of sportswear in everyday outfits, but I think that the ugly sneaker trend will pass me by. In addition, you won't see me in ultra-wide and ultra-long trousers - a trend that is currently emerging in the avant-garde.

My favorite outfit is: There isn't one specific outfit, it all depends on the day and the season. But a typical outfit for me would be the following: white leather sneakers, shortened trousers – jeans or fabric –, a simple top and a striking jacket over it. My absolute favorite for the summer on cooler days is my orange and yellow satin bomber jacket from AMI. I then like to round off the look with details such as cool accessories, a cap or special socks.

That's not possible: That's quite difficult to say, since rules in the fashion world are always there to be broken. It always depends on how – i.e. with which charisma and in which combination – you wear something. What I would advise men against in 2018, for example, are skin-tight jeans. I'm not a big fan of sailing shoes either, but that probably has to do with the political connotation I have in mind.

I still need this must-have this summer: As far as my summer wardrobe is concerned, I'm actually already done. You should definitely get a casual shirt with vertical stripes. In addition, it will be colorful again in summer, from strong colors to color blocking to floral prints, extravagance is only limited by your own courage. Patterns are also a tip. For example, trousers with a houndstooth or check pattern can be perfectly combined with a simple top.
