What A Gent’s Wearing: Relaxed Summer Styling


Unlike last week’s outfit, which was all about the statement, this week is more about relaxed styling that offers a more subtle look. The main focus of the ensemble is contrast between the fitted beige chinos and the dark v-neck jumper, this not only trims the lower torso but also broadens the shoulders and chest. The v-neck cut helps sharpen the outfit with the aid of the smart black shoes, however this can just as easily be paired with navy espadrilles or brown boat shoes provided you use a brown belt instead of black. This look is perfect for dinner out with friends or a warm summer evening walk through town, yet it is an incredibly simply put together piece and very comfortable to wear.

This outfit has a lot of mediterranean inspiration incorporated within it in order to create a sharp look whilst remaining casual enough to be worn in relaxed social situations. We love it for its use of simple contrasts and minimal items of clothing, making it a good choice for a holiday/long-weekend away outfit. For similar inspiration we would recommend looking at some of Bradley Cooper’s casual outfits from “Limitless”, Dermot Mulroney from “The Wedding Date” or George Clooney’s wardrobe from the “Ocean’s” series.
