This week’s Fashionisto dresses efficiently for the 40 degree heat of the sunny Okanagan Valley. His laid-back style is very casual, yet looks clean and fresh due to his color coordination and light accessory choice. This is an easy go-to outfit for all Fashionistos when dressing for the hottest summer days.
While many men attempt to beat the heat by wearing swim shorts and nothing else, this Fashionisto clearly put an effort into his outfit by matching a light blue striped tank, with crisp white chino shorts, pairing together a slightly sailor inspired outfit, without taking the nautical theme too far.
Nonchalantly, the Fashionisto wears a pair of low-profile leather sandals and ties a handmade hemp chain with wooden beads around his ankle. This allows the Fashionisto to have simple and natural accessories whilst looking put together.
To translate this outfit to cooler weather, switch the tank out for a lightweight cotton pull-over and substitute the shorts for a pair of light colored denim pants. The flip-flops can easily be changed for a pair of boat shoes, in order to keep the nautical theme prominent.
There’s no doubt that this Fashionisto looks excellent while feeling completely exhausted from the tremendous heat of summer. His light colors, subtle theme and simple accessories permit him to look breezy, yet focused.
Hint: Listen to the wise words of Coco Chanel, “When accessorizing always take off the last thing you put on.” There is nothing worse than overloading yourself with unnecessary accessories, it’s best to keep it simple in order to avoid confusion within your outfit, especially during summer months.
