1. The Casual Cool Vibe

The perfect in-between look, pair your shirt with a neutral coloured pair of chinos. The combination of soft, subtle fabrics is not only comfortable but classy at the same time. Keep the buttons done up with an open collar, roll up the sleeves for a more daytime attire and then the addition of a brown or black leather belt will break up the outfit nicely. As the night draws, keep the shirt tucked and button up the sleeves, the addition of a lightweight sports jacket or v-neck jumper will smarten up this ensemble for any event.



2. Beach Ready

As the Summer months are looming and the outdoor activities are filling our weekends it can be hard to find a look that is cooling and suitable for beach time to BBQ.

Paired with shorts, keep the shirt open and untucked, layer with a plain t-shirt for when the sun goes down. Effortless and perfectly transitional, no matter where the day takes you!
