MIX IN A JACKET
One of the season’s most versatile pieces is a sport jacket. It works for work, weddings and even weekends (think out-to-dinner). Step outside of the box and pair it with shorts and boat shoes and you’ve got a whole new dress-casual look in your repertoire.
GIVE A NOD TO NAUTICAL
One of summer’s classic trends is always an all-American plaid. Pick a patriotic pattern and keep things casual. Wear it with this season’s must-have pants, white jeans––and go sockless with another essential…boat shoes.
PICK A PASTEL
Lighten things up and pair a pastel sport jacket with light-colored casual pants. Not only are these styles lightweight, they actually look cool, too. Where to wear? Graduation party, outdoor wedding, even a night out on the town. Add some personality with a bold, patterned pocket square.
GEAR UP FOR THE WEEKEND
Getting out the hot rod for a car show? Taking a relaxing Sunday drive? Don’t overthink your look. Simply pair a printed sport shirt with an unexpected pop of color. These washed red chino shorts do the trick. A modern take on a preppy standard that goes anywhere, effortlessly.
UPDATE YOUR SUMMER UNIFORM
Sure tees, shorts and flip flops are the required look for warmer weather, but why not amp this look up in designer style? With a California-cool vibe, True Religion’s graphic tee and rolled-edge shorts make any afternoon feel more relaxed. And don’t forget to slip on a pair of super comfortable UGG sandals!
PACK FOR A GETAWAY
Planning for a three-day weekend? Wherever you’re headed (city, mountains, beach) take along a relaxed tee, comfortable cargos and a patterned sport shirt. That shirt acts as a layer and can easily get dressed up when topped with a blazer and paired with khakis.
ADD SOME TROPICAL PUNCH
Say aloha to island style in oversized floral motifs. But hold on, they’re not just for Hawaiian shirts anymore. We suggest pairing a solid luxe silk shirt with patterned board shorts! Instantly you’re ready for lunch poolside followed by an afternoon dip.
CREATE YOUR OWN SUMMERTIME BLUES
Ditch your denim for now…this month calls for a whole new set of blues: lightweight tees and board shorts are sure to hit the right note, whether you’re lounging lakeside or pool hopping.
