Let's Hear it for the Boys

A chic summertime look is always in style, and this Fashionisto pulls it off well. His look is fresh and classic, yet still cool; it's polished yet still casual enough for everyday even

For a look like this, pair great shorts with a button-down in a cool pattern or fun color. A button-down is a great alternative to a T-Shirt if you want to look a little more dressed up. A polo shirt is also a dressier option, so you could do that too. For a Polo, though, it is best to go with a solid color whereas for a button-down, you can play around a little bit. Button-downs are also versatile in that you can roll up the sleeves to make them a little less formal.

For nighttime, you could also pair the top with pants or jeans, but shorts for the daytime work very well. However, you can’t exactly put athletic shorts with a button down and call it a day — the shorts should be fairly polished to round off the look. Luckily, a basic pair of shorts comes in a multitude of colors, lengths and fits, so finding one for your body and style should be fairly easy.

You can pair any number of shoes with this look — flip flops, tennis shoes or boat shoes will all work. A great pair of sunglasses completes this look and is an essential accessory for summer. You could also wear a great baseball cap for extra sun-protection. As long as it isn’t too ratty, the cap will still look polished with the rest of your outfit.
