Man on the Move: How to be Dashing in the Sun

We must achieve clean lines if we want to have notable style in the forthcoming days of heat. We can no longer afford to hide behind deft layering. The skills that we have acquired will now be tested and we must rise to the challenge. Clean lines, precisely tailored pants, crew neck shirts with visually stimulating patterns and good looking, sensible shoes are apt markers of success in this regard. A handsome bag and complementary, not overbearing, jewelry will work in our favor. Take it from the creative experts at Burberry; when all the pieces fit (or hit), there is palpable harmonious energy. As it goes, great style should flow seamlessly throughout all seasons.

Style Advice:

A striped linen button up from Zara is a great starting point for creating an easy mid spring look. A significant and noteworthy trend for spring/summer is pairing T-shirts with trousers – cropped to be exact. Sandro’s carrot cut bottoms in neutral navy fits the bill to a tee. Pants of this shape and hem length can work with lace up wingtips from Tods or woven sneakers in grainy white from Aquatalia. Take a pick; either option will enhance the vibe of the ensemble. Ditch the shopper in place of a backpack, it’s cooler that way. This selection in contrast quilting from trusted Massimo Dutti may just be the finishing touch. Style is transformative, as should be the ending product from the point of inspiration. This look may not mirror that of Burberry’s, but it preserves the spirit.

Must Have:

Alas, it is here. The season of warmer weather is here! This constitutes less layering threads. What is apt to replace it is the layering of jewelry, specifically on the arm. An eye-catching bracelet is the optically intriguing tool that will furnish the necessarily simplistic ensembles of the summer. An exorbitant piece from David Yurman is an investment that is well worth the spend. Keeping it classic and neutral; the woven box chain in black and silver is ripe for summer stunting. For those of a more frugal mindset, this chevron striped silk concoction from Paul Smith – while ephemeral – will have solid legs for the summer. Or shall I say, arms!
