Dressing for summer means long, hot days (and balmy nights), so you need modular outfits that let you switch pieces in or out depending on the time of day, temperature and the place you’re headed. To help stay cool, look cool and not get caught out in an unexpected rain shower, here are some no-fail formulas for staying stylish this summer.
Denim Jacket + Tee + Jeans:
Think you can’t wear denim in summer? Think again. Lightweight denim is more flexible and breathable than its heavier counterpart, letting you keep that rock edge without overheating. Team a washed denim jacket with a tee and distressed jeans for an off-duty look you can wear everywhere.
Leather Bomber + Breton Shirt + Chinos:
A naval staple at heart, there’s no arguing the Breton shirt is a menswear classic that skews more casual than smart. A Breton shirt works just as well for a dinner date as it does a stroll to ease the hangover the next day. Dress it up with a buttery soft leather jacket in the evening.
Blazer + Shirt + Cropped Trousers:
Feeling the heat in the office? Cut loose with a look that’ll let you breathe.
Small tweaks like choosing a trouser that lets you feel the breeze on your ankles or simply undoing a couple of buttons, helps keep sweat at bay without getting your boss’ finger wagging. What’s more, you won’t need to pack a change of clothes for the post-work round either.
