unnecessary belt

a fan of simplicity, i'm usually not one for overt accessories; but if one must, a little gap between the belt and a fitted pant conveys a bit of ease.

summer cocktail

just a bit of jovial understatement with similar tie and dress shirt palettes. slight off-hues also work (ie pink with red). enjoy!

the double-pleated short

flat fronts, you've had your day :)

the orthodox skirt

long and black. the trick is to make it look as heavy as possible, while keeping the fabrics cool and breathable.

very understated, unexpected, and tongue-in-cheek in a sea of minis. can pair with black sheer to embolden the look, or a comfy tee or tank to keep warm.

white socks + loafers

if you're feeling playful this summer :)

sequin bermudas

and we thought it only came as tight leggings, or dresses.

keep it casual by pairing with a solid white T and simple shoes (ie discrete sandals or muted loafers).

gold is definitely the color for the summer, but grey or black also work if you prefer subtlety over tongue-in-cheek.

now if i can only find a decent men's pair ;)

shorts + long sleeve dress shirts

the jacket pairing with shorts has been done already. trends tend to be above the knee shorts.

i prefer knee length fitted, and simply a long sleeve dress shirt (no jacket as this is summer after all, and everyone else has a jacket) paired with a simple solid tie. best summer look for men thus far.
