WHAT TO WEAR: Out With Friends

What to Wear

While not having any homework is certainly a large perk of summer break, I think the best part is having more free time. Instead of having crazy weeks full of packed schedules, we finally have a few more hours every day to rest and enjoy life. During the school year, it often seems as though the only time we’re able to socialize is at the library, so finally being able to have fun with our friends without laptops and textbooks makes going out even better. But with the heat of summer, finding something to wear for all those carefree occasions can present a big problem. This Fashionisto perfectly demonstrates how to solve that problem.

With temperatures often reaching into three-digits, keeping outfits light and simple is mandatory. Since summer nights with friends usually involves spending lots of time outside, comfort is another key that must be factored into the ensemble. This Fashionisto’s outfit could not be better suited for a typical Kentucky social occasion. His bright blue striped polo, which is the focal point of the outfit, is casual but still polished. Paired with khaki shorts, the look can be worn for almost any occasion, whether it be lunch with friends or an evening pool party. His Sperry Top-Siders complete the outfit for a classic college look, while the dark brown color provides a twist from the typical tan that is usually worn.

By keeping it simple and casual, this Fashionisto shows that getting dressed for all those summer occasions doesn’t have to  be complicated. By choosing pieces that are fun and polished, you can make sure you look put together and still ready for anything the summer nights may bring while having a great time with your friends.

One Simple Change: Found summer love? Swap the polo for a more polished sport shirt for the perfect outfit for a casual date night.
