Coming off a lovely, Memorial Day, the summer season has officially begun. With this, it’s the perfect time to take off on random adventures during your time off. Most dudes think traveling in style just applies to attire. That’s where you’re wrong my friends. You’ll be toting (See what I did there?) this major accessory around so it shouldn’t look lame. Take a look above for some of my favorite weekenders as of now and use it as inspiration for your next journey.

The Long And Short Of It

The longline silhouette has been trending for a while now and I’m starting to see more and more mainstream designers and stores pick it up. Longline can be a VERY slippery slope if you don’t know what you’re doing. Because I do the most, I opted for a more severe cut. As a person on the shorter side, a piece like this can easily look like a body con dress from American Apparel. (Hence why I stay away from tees that are the same length.) Knowing your proportions are crucial. If you’re not blessed with a frail model physique, you’ll have to pay attention to wear the shirts fall and also the type of pant you’ll pair it with. As a member of the under 5’9 committee (people always tell me I look shorter in person so FYI) I went with these slightly cropped trousers to show I have legs. Have a little fun an experiment this summer, but let’s not get too crazy, eh?

This weekend officially marks Memorial Day. And according to some bougie people, it finally means you can get decked out in your pearly whites without the risk of creating a social faux pas. I personally don’t adhere to these rules, but there’s no time like the present to pick out some of my fave pieces in white for the season. Whether you’ll be summering in the Hamptons, partying on Diddy’s yacht, or chilling in the crib watching all your friends have fun on the gram, the pieces above will serve you well.

I like to think my aesthetic for the Spring/Summer is somewhere between elderly neighbor who always has butterscotch or watermelon candies in his pocket mixed with an unemployed horn player. I think it’s important to have a signature look for every season. Mine might be a little out there but if ever I’m having trouble picking our a look I know I can always fall back on my printed short sleeves, trousers, and wide brim hats. I probably won’t follow this formula every day because I have no chill.

How would you describe your Spring/Summer aesthetic this year?
