Cool, cas (ual) summer looks – for the gents

Last week, I shared some amazing summer looks from recent photoshoot I collaborated on.  Here’s the second half of that shoot… this one is for the gents.


If this doesn’t scream summer, I don’t know what does.  The fabrics are light linens and cottons so they are easy to wear during a warm summer day.  The all-over baby blue is easy to wear but I do understand that not all of you are comfortable pulling off this tone on tone look.  Instead, pair a white linen buttondown shirt with these pants.  The floral pattern shirt, shoes and belt brings the perfect pops of colour to complete this look.


Yes, there is pattern on pattern going on here.  It’s subtle (the pants) yet very interesting.  This is a great look for a night out.  The dark denim blazer pairs well with these patterns and grounds this outfit a bit, however, the outfit will look great without the blazer as well (the t-shirt has short sleeves).  A shoe that has more of a sneaker feel to it will bring a more casual look to this outfit.  It you want to dress it up, add a casual dress shoe.

Let me know if you have a question/comment about these looks.
