During these summer months, a rainy day is often just what nature calls for to break the heat and allow us to do all of the inside chores we have been putting off this season. With rain often comes the comfortable workout clothes and sweat pants that have been shoved deep into the bottom of our drawers, waiting for winters return. Inclement weather should, however, never stop a true Fashionisto/a from showing off his or her unique style.
This Fashionisto was able to withstand the rain with a casual, though preppy look, which is easily translatable to many other occasions he may come across this summer.
Lacoste polos are often the signature of a tennis or golf player. Here this Fashionisto was able to dress down this classic look with a pair of tropically printed shorts and casual flip-flops. His choice to pair a navy shirt with such bold shorts downplays the pattern in the shorts making them more neutral for such gloomy weather.
Polo T-shirts, whether Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Izod or a brand not associated with athleticism are a great way to prep up a more casual look. Their lightweight material also makes them great for surviving rainy days, especially when you forget your umbrella.
Tropical print shorts are also a great way to beat the dreary weather on a rainy day. It is also wise, as this Fashionisto has done, to wear shorts that are in some way water resistant. Many men are slightly rougher on their wardrobe than women and often go out during inclement weather without an umbrella. Shorts that have water resistant qualities will keep you dry, while the right pattern will keep you stylish.
One Simple Change: By simply replacing the flip flops with a pair of Sperry Top-Siders a Fashionisto can easily take this look from a rainy day to a vacation. Sperry’s will allow this look to remain casual, while dressing it up just enough to make it more translatable to summer vacation activities.
