Even if you’re like me and love wearing suits, when the weekend rolls around you probably want to keep it a little more relaxed and casual, but still stylish and put together. And as I mentioned on Friday, the key to mastering the art of simple style is to have those key basics in your closet. Two of the most essential spring pieces are a chambray shirt and a great pair of khaki chinos. Here’s an easy way to wear them.
We don’t often talk about casual finishing touches, but just like polishing off a suit with a pocket square, tie, and cufflinks, choosing the right accessories for something more casual can change a good outfit into a great one. The right hat—a true gentleman’s accessory—will not only top off your look, but can also completely transform it. Visit a local shop and chat with an expert—I owe a lot to my buddy Alex from Goorin Brothers in the West Village—and choose one that fits your face size and shape, but most importantly, one that you’re comfortable and confident wearing.
