As the weather is warming up, many men are starting to pull away from the darker washes to lighter ones. A great alternative from the usual light blues is white. It’s fresh and most of the time unexpected to be seen worn casually. They are not just for Labor Day parties or a Hamptons day anymore. They can work with anyone’s closet, whether you are preppy and put together or someone that has more of a street approach to how they dress. The ideas are endless. You can see how I styled the Simon Miller Stinson Jeans (available here) three different ways below.
I could not resist doing an almost all white look when we got asked to do this post. You just can’t go wrong pairing a great fitting t shirt with a great fitting pair of jeans. Whether it be the same color or not. I chose a shirt by Jil Sander, Luv AJ ID bracelet, a beanie by The Elder Statesman, and a pair of classic Timberland boots. I initially wanted to finish this look off with a gray beanie, but felt like it was washing out the look and giving a marshmallow effect. Adding the red brings life to the outfit and helps pick up the gold from the bracelet and brown in the shoes.
I have been a fan of the J Brand Leather Pants in Cement since I first saw them a few months back. They don’t feel dull like many other gray styles and are perfect for this season. I styled them with a floral shirt from Zara, a yellow shoulder bag from Trussardi and some Alexander Wang sandals.
After going the more casual route with my weekend looks the past few times, I wanted to do something that was very feminine and breezy. I found that yellow and beige tones work really well with the color of these pants. I am usually not a fan of looks that are too matchy or feminine, but the mood I was in while putting this outfit together was definitely cheery. The white sandals and the sunny shade of the bag helps lighten the look and detour it away from my usual moody/sportier vibe that I go for. Not sure if this means a change in my personal style, but this is definitely one of my favorite looks that I put together. What do you think of it?
For this post I decided to choose the AG Legging Ankle in Zig Zag White from the Cher Coulter collaboration. It is Summer so I wanted to choose a print that was still subtle and easy to wear, whether you are going out or just running errands. It is also a departure from the usual solids or distressed pairs that I normally choose.
This is the casual look that I can see someone running errands in. Cool sneakers, cool jeans, and a cool jacket that not only screams how I described them, but also screams comfort. I instantly thought to pair these with different shades of blues when I first saw them. Rag & Bone are ones that find new ways to reinterpret classic styles like this jacket as well as the t shirt. To keep with the overall casual theme, I finished the look off with a pair of high-top sneakers from the Robert Del Carlo x Superga collection and a belt by Rag & Bone.
Ever since I saw this Rebecca Taylor Denim Vest, I knew I wanted to style an outfit around it. I think it is a really versatile piece that can be worn a lot of different ways. Overall, my look for this week was a bit on the casual side, but could easily work for a low key night out as well.
I chose to layer the vest over this form fitting green Reiss Dress. I think the vest adds a nice edge to the simplistic shape of the dress. I accessorized with these flat sandals from Calypso and added some color with this gold and neon necklace from Dorothy Perkins and some pattern with this Stella McCartney python bag.
