Summer marks the perfect time for adventure. Sure, I can and definitely will spend hours watching Netflix on my comfy snake-like couch, but there is nothing like a perfect summer venture to spice up any boring day. Being in the middle of nowhere allows one to come up with many fun adventures, from new piercings to quick road-trips, my roommates and I have thought of it all. Recently, I made my way to good ol’ Austin, Texas for some fun shopping and good eats! At a local winery I spotted this Fashionisto wearing his summer best, displaying true men’s summer style.
This Fashinsto is wearing a style perfect for the occasion as well as the Texas heat. He begins his look with a maroon checkered Southern Tide button-down. By rolling his sleeves approximately “three times” according to him, he is keeping cool and giving off a chill summer vibe. On his top half he also displays his favorite item, his silver and gold cross necklace.
Below the belt, he wears a classic pleated khaki Brooks Brothers’ short. This style of short is my absolute favorite because they work for both casual bar nights and those semi-formal surprise events. On his feet he wears a dark Sperry Top-Siders boat shoe. A dark leather shoe is another item that can definitely go from day to night. If you currently do not own “Sperry’s” then they are your next go to summer shoe for this reason.
To make this look you own, keeping things causal yet comfortable is definitely key. Everyone owns a simple button-down, and wearing it with a nice pleated short can transform any casual outfit to something a little more “formal”. Rolling those sleeves is definitely a must; it keeps your arms nice and cool even when the summer weather is anything but! Even if your summer adventure many turn a tad more formal, trade your khaki pants for a nice short instead. They will give you that same put-together look, while keeping you unruffled! Whether your summer adventure takes you to the nearest tattoo parlor or that fancy restaurant near campus you have always wanted to try, wearing your summer best is perfect for spicing up any summer journey ahead.
