Andy Cohen on 'Watch What Happens Live' (Bravo)
The man who sits front and center at all those crazy "Housewives" reunions has teamed with online retailer Gilt to curate a pair of sales on Gilt MAN and Gilt City that launched on Wednesday. Needless to say, he enjoyed the process of helping others shop.
"It was so fun. I was like Andy Wintour," he told omg! Tuesday night at a dinner at Maysville in New York City to celebrate the collection. "They gave me all these options and I got to 'X' things out and choose looks that I like. I'm very opinionated about fashion, so it was really fun for me to get to do."
In honor of his Gilt-y pleasures, we asked Cohen – who also toasting the release of his bestselling memoir, "Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture," out in paperback this week – to share a few spring fashion dos and don'ts for men.
DON'T be afraid to go dark, despite the warmer weather. "Dark suits typically make you look a little slimmer," he said.
DO mix it up. "I like mixing plaids and stripes, and plaids and solids."
DON'T go oversized. "Get really quality suits that fit you well – that are not too big, because so many men wear suits that are too big for them."
DO rock a simple tie. "Get some cool shirts that have color or patterns and mix them with some solid ties."
DON'T fear the brown shoes. "I love a brown shoe with a gray suit, and I love a brown shoe with a blue suit," he told Gilt. "And I occasionally get crazy emails and tweets that say, 'You can’t wear a brown shoe with a blue suit, or a gray suit!' and I say, ‘You’re absolutely wrong!’ The only shoe I wouldn’t wear a brown shoe with is a black suit."
