Tropically Tailored: Tulum Bound

It’s been a great week in NYC attending the first New York Fashion Week: Men’s, but I have to tell you that I need a vacation! Prior to this busy week, I was on the road for 23 days with only one day at home before hopping on a train to take care of business in NYC. Thankfully, I’m headed to Tulum today for a week of extreme relaxation. Though I intend to spend the majority of my time laying on the beach or by the pool with cocktail in hand, I do plan to clean up for a few nice evening meals. Here’s how I’m staying tropically tailored.

The right hat. A straw hat is both practical and stylish. It shields my face from the sun while lounging around the pool or at the beach, while instantly giving a dressed up look a little bit of a tropical vibe.

Unbutton it. I’m a fan of unbuttoning my button-ups one button further than I usually do during the summer. So instead of the top two, I do the top three. It’s casually cool, confident and sexy. It also helps to dress down a double-breasted blazer.

Accessorize with color. I’m usually pretty conservative when it comes to the beads on my right wrist and tend to stick with brown and black just to balance everything. However, with the tropical environment, adding a little color seems appropriate. The Dee Berkley collection has some great options.

Loafers FTW. You’ve got to have a killer┬ápair of loafers. I’ve gotten a ton of mileage out of my Allen Edmonds Grand Caymans over the last few years.

    You have to be Italian, right? Might be a naive question, but our style screams it (it’s a good thing)

    The Lapel size on your blazer. Wow! I need to score one of those. As always, you look clean and refined. Unbuttoning the top three buttons is something I did for two days this past New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Sometimes, it is so necessary. I hope you had an awesome time. It was nice meeting you at the GQ lounge!
