Shorts aren’t only for the beach. Dress yours up by pairing them with a button-down shirt and loafers. Don’t forget your watch, belt, and shades. You’ll be the man with confidence to spare.

Outfit #5: Summer Business Casual

Tan cotton blazer with jeans

Dress things up by tucking a white button-down into light-wash jeans. Add a summer-weight blazer in tan for a sophisticated take on business casual.

Outfit #6: Low Contrast Casual

Yellow t-shirt with shorts

Keep it casual in a t-shirt, shorts, and white sneakers. It’s perfect for those hot summer days. This look works because of the low contrast between the hues of the yellow t-shirt and khaki shorts.

Outfit #7: Easy Breezy Blue

Light blue t-shirt

For another laid-back look, swap out the yellow tee and sneakers for a blue tee and espadrilles - the quintessential laid back summer shoe. Pro Tip: The key to looking great in a t-shirt is a perfect fit.

Outfit #8: Colorful Business Casual

Business casual summer outfit

Being casual doesn’t mean you have to live in t-shirts. Wearing a button down with lightweight chinos will elevate your look without making you overheat. If you're a slim guy, be sure to wear a slim fit shirt.

Outfit #9: A Modern Classic

Tan Harrington jacket with jeans

For a breezy summer night, layer our Harrington jacket over a yellow tee with light wash jeans. The low contrast between the pale blue, pastel yellow, and tan jacket add visual height to the wearer.

Outfit #10: Summer Smart Casual

Slim fit blue button down shirt

For a dressier take on the Harrington jacket, pair it with chinos, a light blue button up, and blue suede driving mocs (skip the socks). Add a belt to complete the look.

Outfit #11: Elevated Denim

Light wash denim shirt

Looking for another way to wear your denim button-down? Button it up. And pair it with khaki chinos and loafers. Roll up your sleeves, add a watch, and sport shades for ultimate cool guy style.

Outfit #12: Summer Stripes

Red blue stripe polo

During summer - especially when traveling - it’s important to pack lightweight layers. Hot days and cool nights mean a Harrington jacket is a must on your packing list. Wear it with a striped polo, chinos, and sneakers. These stripes work for us “not-so-tall” guys, because they’re not too wide.

Summer is the perfect time to sport lightweight, comfortable clothing. This season is ideal for stocking up on tees, polos, and shorts. Whatever summer outfit suits you, we hope you wear it in good style and good health.
