STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Conservatively Casual

Some pieces in fashion just never go out of style, which makes classic trends so great. At least once in your life you probably owned something classic, such as a button-down shirt, a blazer or some chino shorts for the warmer months. When I think of the classic, timeless trend I think of style icons such as Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn and Olivia Palermo. Everything these women have worn is ageless and effortless. Brands that perfectly emulate this style time after time are Brooks Brothers, J.Crew and Ralph Lauren. Some people these days have the idea stuck in their mind that styles will always come and go, but the great thing about classic pieces is that you can wear them in ten or fifteen years and they’ll still be relevant to the fashion world.

Check out how this Fashionisto emulates this everlasting style for the summer. He dons a pale blue Calvin Klein striped button-down shirt,paired with some red linen shorts from J.Crew.
