The Anatomy of a Casual Outfit: Gents’ Warm Weather Addition

With Memorial Day now under our belts, many of us have our sights set on half-day Fridays (whether they are office sanctioned or not), days of golf, baseball games, and lots of ways to take advantage of some solid fun. So, of course, you’ll want to be comfortable – and you don’t want to spend much time thinking about what to wear. We’re here to let you know you can look good - all at the same time. And it will be easy. Today, we wrap up our week of outfit anatomy with 2 casual outfits that lay out all the core essentials for your lazy days of summer (even if they’re not so lazy).
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed the anatomy of our work or after 5 outfits, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

The Shirt (The Core Piece of the Outfit). From Billy Reid, this navy and cream baseball t-shirt is a stylishly sporty way to update a t-shirt and feel super comfortable all day long. It looks easy and masculine with shorts, your favorite jeans, a great pair of twill pants, or even a pair of modern looking sweats. The contemporary fit will keep this casual look from appearing sloppy – just coolly relaxed.

The Pants. While a pair of perfectly broken-in jeans or your favorite shorts look great with the featured baseball t-shirt in this outfit, we want to show you how great it also looks with a dark wash pair of jeans. These jeans give the outfit a little more polish for a relaxed dinner out or drinks at the bar. AG’s Matchbox fit is contemporary, and although trim, not too trim for most gents and coordinates with the fit of the t-shirt.

The Easy Layer. We hate to admit it, but sometimes we still need a jacket. J.Crew makes us feel good about this reality though, with their lightweight cotton field jacket. It’s not too heavy for summer, and has a relaxed and rugged vibe that is effortless with the t-shirt and jeans in this outfit. If you are going away for a weekend, this is an ideal piece to throw on. It’s cool hillside green color matches everything and the modern fit looks good on everyone (and you can size up, if you prefer a truly relaxed fit and it will still look good).

The Shoes. We know that sneakers are always a comfortable way for gents to finish off a casual outfit. The old school styling and dark color combination give these sneakers a more stylish and polished feel, so they pair perfectly with dark wash jeans like the ones in this outfit. And since they’re from New Balance, you know they’ll be comfortable – key to any casual style.

The Easy Layer (The Core Piece of the Outfit). Instead of a sweatshirt, layering a full zip cotton cardigan over a t-shirt is a stylish – and equally versatile - way to do weekend casual. Since this track style pick is from Brooks Brothers, the fit is relaxed and modern, so you can also wear it comfortably over a sport shirt for a weekend brunch. The mid-navy color is a great neutral, working well with jeans of any wash, as well as any neutral color pants and shorts. And you can’t beat the quality and soft texture of the Supima® cotton they use.

Tommy Bahama - Sand Drift Island Modern Fit Stripe T-Shirt
The Shirt. Of course, a summery colored t-shirt is a must-have and this turquoise from Tommy Bahama is a really nice pop under the featured sweater in this outfit. The classic crewneck uses a super soft modal blend fabric that has a subtle fine line stripe, adding interest and sophistication to a casual basic.

Agave - Pragmatist Glove Touch Flex Pants
The Pants. In Clothes & Conversation this week, we talked about the importance of a soft twill pair of jeans for Summer – the light weight is a great alternative to denim, and the color is soft and appropriate. These khaki Agave’s have a classic fit and modern straight leg that looks great with the sweater and t-shirt in this outfit, whether worn together or separately. And, of course, this is a staple for your wardrobe so you’ll wear them with anything, whether you are running errands or heading out to dinner.

Gents - Adjustable Chambray Baseball Cap
The Staple Accessory. A hat is just as important for a gent in the Summer as it is in the Winter. It not only keeps the sun out of your eyes, it keeps those nasty UV rays away from your face and exposed parts of your head. The clean, no logo look and the 2 ¾” brim of this baseball hat combines style and casual ease, taking a traditional baseball hat up a notch on the style spectrum. It works with this outfit, and any outfit, in it’s neutral grey cotton chambray that will just get better with age.

The Shoes. We are more than ok with the throwback trend of boat shoes. Keep it completely classic and old school with these dark brown leather classics Sperry Top-Sider. And wear them to death. They look cooler and cooler as the hand sewn leather moccasin construction breaks in. They finish this classic outfit with ease, and are a great alternative to sneakers all season long.
