WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

This one’s for the Fashionisto’s who are struggling to figure out what to wear this weekend. How do you dress in a masculine and fashionable way and still remain cool in the summer heat? Take cues from this Fashionisto in his monochromatic weekend look.

Lightweight shirts are a life saver when it’s creeping close to 100 degrees. The short sleeve button-up has been a really popular trend among guys lately, especially in lightweight woven fabrics that let you feel the summer breeze. This Fashionisto added some visual interest to his basic button-up by choosing a funky blue pattern. To not distract from the pattern, he chose solid navy shorts. Doing this kept the look monochromatic and put together—An easy look for a hot day.

Accessories can always make or break an outfit. This Fashionisto kept his accessories simple with some neutral canvas sneakers and a classy silver watch. Simplistic pieces like these can add to and complete an outfit instead of distract from the already busy shirt pattern.

Don’t get stressed out about weekend wear when you’re living a (hopefully) stress-free life this summer. Besides, summer is the perfect time for playing with patterns and testing out the monochromatic waters before you start to build your back to school wardrobe this fall.

One Simple Change: Switch out the navy shorts for some navy chinos to take the look from the weekend to a casual Friday at your summer job or internship. The business casual vibe gives you a polished, but laid back look and puts you a step up over the denim-flooded office.
