Summer class

11:06 am | Saturday, May 30th, 2015

Summer should be gone soon, but it doesn’t mean you should put away your tanks and shorts. Welcome the wet season in style by adding some sophistication to your summer wardrobe with dapper pieces and textured belts—the perfect look for transitioning into cooler days.

Tank out of the box

Add class to the staple tank + shorts combination by going for an elegant ochre palette and a streamlined belt to complete the look.

Trail blazer

Look more dapper in your basic belt-and-shorts beach look with a blazer for a Hamptons vibe—a great look for those beachside night parties.

Style overlay

Play around with removable layers when faced with fickle weather. Warm up with a classic blazer over a stylish shirt, and cool down by taking it off and using it as an accessory

Color pop

Use splashes of color and bold prints to make the most of your summer tan, then throw in a little sophistication by adding a woven belt.

Classics are classics for a reason. No matter what the season, a snazzy dress shirt will always look on point.
