WHAT TO WEAR: Errands

Summer days are upon us. Here in the Midwest, many of us can be found swimming at the lake, camping under the stars or even enjoying rides at the county fair. Even during these weeks of relaxation and fun, there are still chores to be done. I find it comforting to take a day out of my hectic schedule of internships, summer classes and time bonding with friends to spend the day checking off my to-do list of personal errands. The Fashionisto captured above understands the importance of taking some “Me Time” while also being fashion forward.

Spotted on the campus of Illinois State University, this Fashionisto took a few minutes before heading to the library to share his personal style. He keeps it simple with a longer-length, heather gray tank top that goes nicely with his black shorts that have a micro-print nautical pattern. The split scallop hem on the tank top gives it a unique fit. Notice the shorts hit just above the knee, the perfect length for staying comfortable while walking from the post office to the dry cleaners. He wore off-white Vans since he will be on his feet all day. Staying comfortable is key for success when running errands. His vintage-inspired baseball cap helps beat the heat on these sweltering summer days. Functional meets fashionable with this Fashionisto’s backpack, an essential accessory for his busy day.

One of the latest in men’s fashion is the renovation on the concept of lengths. Tops are getting longer, and shorts are getting slimmer and hitting just above the knee. I, personally, like the balance between the length of the tank top and shorts, pulling the look together.

One Simple Change: After crossing off the last check box on your list of errands, throw on this short sleeve button-down shirt for PacSun. Switch the shorts for these olive green jogger pants and you are ready to hit the town for date night.
