Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to start thinking about how to do more with less. Here’s a look that puts a spin on the casual classic jeans and t-shirt with some white denim.
Jeans and a t-shirt. It really doesn’t get much simpler than that. And while I love dark denim, a slim fitting pair of white denim is a great way to change things up for summer. As a general rule, I cuff them for casual looks but not when dressing them up.
As far as the hem goes, though I do own a pair of dark denim that I bought with a longer leg length just so I can wear them with a cuff, I had these hemmed to my usual specs. Having a higher hem with them rolled up works for summer but only looks “right” if the leg is tapered nicely.
I have to say that with a narrow face, I sometimes have trouble finding sunglasses that fit right. Many of the shades I love just look entirely too large. The Ray-Ban New Wayfarer is a fantastic choice if you’ve got a smaller face like me.
I’ve mentioned before that a watch strap can completely transform your timepiece. NATO G10 watch straps come in such a variety of colors and are relatively inexpensive. I definitely recommend having a few in your collection to choose from. For casual looks, especially, it’s a really easy way to add a great accent.
