This time of the year is peak for prints, patterns, and pops of color. No matter the season, it’s important to still have a grasp of your neutrals. While it might be cool to wear black 365 in major metropolitan cities, the black and gray scheme doesn’t have to be the minimalists go to. Check out the other end of the spectrum and try off-whites and work your way to browns. These are typically easier to find in light fabrics so you don’t have to melt while doing your stunts and shows. This happens to also be one of my favorite tee shirts because it’s linen and has a good shape. Speaking of which, cut and silhouette are crazy important in lighter clothes because they don’t fit everyone one the same way. (Take it from the guy who can’t find a long line shirt to fit a short torso’d frame to save his life.)
Is it just me or is everyone obsessed with dads nowadays? Since I’m too vain and self-conscious to grow a “dad bod,” there’s something I can steal from the baby daddies: polos. Sure polos are attached to the prep lifestyle, but they’re also a staple for everyone’s father in the summer. (Well that and a sweat stained wife beater.) The polo is a perfect option for all dudes this season who want something in-between a tee and dress shirt. These can go either way when it comes to dressing it up or down, but I decided to ride that thin line by adding dress pants and some white low tops. You might not have kids, but in the right fit someone will end up calling you big poppa.
Sun’s out, calves out. Alright that’s not an actual saying and I could probably think of a better pun, but I’m running on fumes here. Whatever it’s finally warm enough to wear shorts without catching a side eye from a judgemental busybody like myself. Oversized, jort, or sweatshort: take a look at some of my current faves and get some sun on those limbs.

If I ran a boarding school I’m pretty sure that’d make faux leather collar shirts, oversized shorts, and snapbacks part of the warm weather uniform, but then again who’d let me be in charge of their child? Speaking of oversized shorts, I’m completely crushing on them. (Lest we forget.) The exaggerated pocket on these give off an apron silhouette and has so much room for the essentials. (You know: phone, keys, wallet, candy, drink tickets, etc.) Enough about the outfit can we talk about how sick this background is?! Gotta love that NYC architecture.
