WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

It can be challenging to put together an outfit that stands out when the reality is that you want to wear as few pieces as possible to stay dry and comfortable in the summer. I spotted this urban street style outfit that also incorporated bright summer colors on today’s Fashionisto.

This Fashionisto stays cool in a knit mesh tank top by Crooks and Castles. Graphic print tank tops are a way to add detail to your look without accessories, and they also give a street style vibe. Basketball jerseys and any type of material that allows for ventilation are ideal for the summertime, which makes this Fashionisto’s top perfect for dealing with the heat. The solid red colored backside of the tank top contrasts well with the printed front and is the perfect shade to combine with his light blue shorts.

On his feet he wore a pair of casual black Vans. Since we all tend to spend more time outside during summer, a good pair of shoes won’t get in the way of any activities you might end up doing. As nice as sandals might feel, you don’t want to get into a situation where you wish you had worn sturdier shoes, like a spontaneous hike (been there done that!). He wore a black Mishka snapback, which again, is ideal for streetwear. Keeping the minor parts of your outfit simple and in neutral colors is a great way to shift the attention to the main focal point, which in this Fashionisto’s case is his tank top.

One Simple Change: Once fall begins to roll around and the nights get chillier, swap the shorts for a pair of black jeans and throw on a black bomber jacket for an edgy night look.
