Summer is the hottest season, literally and figuratively, to
look and be cool. Its easy to get lost in the endless trends, yet keep it
You can still stay true and keep your summer style fly by going
back to the basics and mixing the old with the new.
Here are some simple tips!
Wear simple denim (no logos), khaki cargo shorts in a vivid
color, and go back to the classics with retro kicks.
Men can complete the look with a white polo shirt, or keep
it all hood with a white tee
Ladies, a simple white halter top or pack of Hanes
wife-beaters (no pun intended) works. Or try sun-dresses in light patterns or
with bold colors that pop. They can be worn with flat sandals that have a bit
of an edge to perfectly accessorize any look, dressed up or down.
Another key accessory to add your summer wardrobe: a
straw-Fedora hat, especially on those humid dog days of summer. For the ladies,
itll keep away a bad-hair day, and for the dudes that are hat fanatics itll
give the Yankee fitted a vacation (sorry Boston fans).
