How To: Wear 2 Updated Casual Pieces, In Summer & In Fall

We’re in the thick of Summer. But let’s face it, for most of us, it’s a pretty short season. So, finding some key styles that we can wear now – and once the weather starts cooling down – just makes good sense. We’re wrapping up the week with 2 casual items that, with just a few outfit changes, will look just as good now as they will in Fall. It won’t matter if you’re watching baseball or football, you’re going to look casually modern and updated.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our favorite transitional looks for work or after 5 this week, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

RVCA - Block Plate Crew Sweater
KEY Transitional Item #1. An easy cotton sweater that works with shorts, khakis and jeans is a great wear now, wear later item. And the olive and black color combination in this block stripe from RVCA is right on the money. It’s not only perfect with all of your neutral colored shorts and pants, it looks great with jeans in any wash. And the colors are ideal for Fall, especially with military inspirations being so prevalent. The modern fit and amazing price makes this sweater a winner for every gent.

Wear Now Coordinating Item. The deep khaki color of these Bonobos shorts look great with the darker colors of the featured striped sweater, making for the perfect casual Summer evening look. The 9” inch inseam hits just above the knee for most gents, with a contemporary fit that keeps it looking sleek, not sloppy. Victorinox Swiss Army has a similar pair of shorts, if you prefer an easier, modern fit.

SeaVees - 08/63 Hermosa Plimsoll Standard
Wear Now Coordinating Item. The deeper colors of the sweater and shorts in this outfit need a darker shoe, and these black sneakers from SeaVees are just right. The waxed linen upper is a sophisticated alternative to canvas, yet just as comfortable. And they are really well-made, from the stylish waxed laces to the padded antibacterial and hypoallergenic footbed. Add a coordinating black web belt for a modern casual look that completes this ‘wear now’ look.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. Black jeans turn the featured sweater in this look into a Fall wardrobe staple. Joe’s black denim has slight whiskering and natural fading that make them ideally casual, in a contemporary fit that will have you feeling updated but not like your trying too hard, if you know what we mean. They’re a great alternative to basic blue denim all Fall/Winter long, pairing with all the rich dark colors of the season.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. Contrast the darker tones of the featured sweater and jeans with this blue chambray cotton shirt from Bonobos (choose 'dark wash' as the color through the 'shop it' button). This added layer creates that effortlessly stylish look of a perfectly thrown together outfit – coordinating, without being matchy. And since Bonobos offers it in fits from Tailored (the trimmest) to Standard (more modern and relaxed), every gent can live in this one.

KEY Transitional Item #2. Jeans are a year-round staple, and every gent should include a deep khaki pair his arsenal. Jeans can be made out of more than just denim, and the cotton twill J Brand uses for these (called Auburn through the ‘shop it’ button) is as soft as can be. The color works with everything from a white t-shirt to a heavy sweater or a sport coat, so they’ll be an instant workhorse in your wardrobe. The fit is modern but not skinny, with a straight leg and rise that sits comfortably at the waist.

Agave - Trestles Short Sleeve Henley
Wear Now Coordinating Item. While we’re still enjoying the warm weather, throw on Agave’s great-looking and really well made striped t-shirt with the khaki jeans featured in this look. Henley’s are the freshest look of the season, and give your comfortable t-shirt an instant update. The enzyme wash of the cotton has that effortless appearance of looking already broken-in. The fit is modern but not too trim - size up if you prefer an easier fit.

Wear Now & Later Coordinating Item. Warm or cool, sometimes a sunny day is just not meant to be. And when the weather isn’t on your side, this Peter Millar jacket will be. The lightweight anorak style is great looking and functional, an easy layer in a blue color that easily works with the featured jeans in this outfit – and any pair of pants or shorts. The shell is water resistant, with a zip closure and button placket to keep water out. It even has a stowaway hood – always a nice bonus.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. Once cooler weather sets in, this brushed fleece hoodie from J.Crew will become an absolute favorite. The marled night blue has a grey contrast trim, creating a really rugged color palette with the deep khaki color of the jeans featured. Casual enough for a weekend day of errands, with the jeans featured in this outfit, it also has just the right amount of style to make it perfectly appropriate for a casual night out.

Wear Later Coordinating Item. This easy Vince t-shirt looks so cool under the J.Crew hoodie we’re showing in this Fall look. Why? The Henley style creates a double set of buttons once you layer the two pieces together. And you can even add a crewneck t-shirt underneath for that perfect sartorial finish.
