How to Dress for Casual/Business Functions This Summer

on June 11 | in Fashion, Issue 16 | by | with 1 Comment

The weather is finally starting to break, and wearing a heavy coat and gloves is now over! You can now focus your energy on building your spring/summer wardrobe.

The key to a solid wardrobe this season is re-examining core items and building on the basics. So, guys, take inventory of your closets, purge outdated and unnecessary items, and incorporate these must-haves for a sure-to-turn-heads impressive springtime style. There are basics to every guy’s wardrobe that you should already own; if not, here are some of the basics for updating your everyday and business wardrobe this spring.

Colored Chinos

Wear this pair of pants with a gray T-shirt on the weekend or a simple button-down and tie at the office. When wearing a colored chino, keep everything else subtle and let the emphasis be on your pants.  Pair your colored chinos with neutrals such as black, gray, and white.


What Shoes to Wear with Chinos?

As mentioned above, this pant is made for versatility. The key concept to understand when choosing shoes is that they need to be based on the outfit and overall look. What are you trying to go for? Depending on the answer, you can wear anything on your feet; leather loafers or some other form of leather shoes or boots will make you look professional. For a more casual look, pair them with loafers, some black and natural leather sandals, or a fun casual-looking sneaker like a colored converse. NO running shoes, please!

Pinstripes Suits

Keep your pinstripes subtle and closer together for a friendlier, less abrasive approach—especially for an office environment. If you are looking for ultimate versatility, choose pinstripe over chalk stripe, as they are much more understated. Work your stripes overtime by dressing them down with a long sleeve polo for a casual look. Camel and navy is a great color combination. Some classic brogues will perfect the smart-casual look.


Lighter Color Suits
