Transitional Neutrals: Casual Options to Keep You “Cool”

The weekend is around the corner. And that’s usually time to not only get comfortable, but to have a little fun. So, we often gravitate towards color, generally grounded with jeans or khaki shorts, right? This week, we’ve been talking about sophisticated ways to combine and use this season’s best neutrals – colors inspired by nature, like soft paloma grey (pale, and truly void of color) and sand (a toasted, soft neutral tan). We’re even seeing pops of camouflage, reinterpreted for a masculine feel that is not at all military in feeling. Today, it’s all about bringing these colors in to our casual pieces, and how to accent them with the rest of our wardrobe.
If you missed out on this great color story for work and after 5, be sure to check them out in our Fashion Finds, and tell us what you think. See you next week.

Another Henley style, this one in a more transitional deeper tan, that will pair easily with shorts now and jeans as the weather gets cooler. The slub cotton (the texture within the fabric) and contrasting placket take this basic up a sartorial notch in our book, making it a perfect seasonless investment.

This contemporary take on a classic oxford cloth shirt from Gitman Vintage offers an interesting grey neutral that works with all your bottoms, from neutrals to bolder colors. The best part is the fresh club collar, making an old classic new again. A fun little fashion tip: The club collar originated in the mid-19th century when England’s prestigious Eton College redesigned the collars of their boys’ shirt, giving them the rounded edge, to distinguish their students from others. It got the nickname of “club collar” referring to the elite “club” of students that went to the highbrow school.

A tan linen “beach pant” is fun and useful. Roll up the bottoms, put on sandals and wear it to the beach, on a Saturday afternoon, or just around the house. Any color coordinates with them, but we like the classic look of a white t-shirt or polo  for a crisp summer look.

All those neutral shorts and twill pants need a belt. And with stretchy corded, tightly woven belts being back in style, we especially like this one from Martin Dingman. The blend of tan and taupe goes with all your tan, khaki, white and off-white bottoms. This is a useful, fun belt.

The neutral grey we’ve been talking about even works in flip flops. The soft grey in these Havaianas give them a great updated feel with all the casual comfort and style that draws us to our flip flops every Sunday morning on the way out to walk the dog and grab some coffee.

If you’re looking for something new to take you through fall, look no further. To Boot New York has taken the most classic – and comfortable footwear style – driving moccasins - and given it the coolest of updates with a very subtly printed camo suede. This is for the classic guy who appreciates fashion, and a little bit of plain old good humor. They’ll look great with broken-in jeans or faded tan ones and a grey t-shirt.
