Basic: These yellow shorts are surprisingly neutral in the world of colored bottoms. They keep everything looking simple and tidy, but they could also become an interest piece in a different outfit. Isn't versatility fabulous?
Interest: Chambray is everywhere this year. This shirt becomes the interest piece because of the texture it creates when layered over a white tank, along with the pockets and buttons. It is lightweight and would look super sexy with the arms rolled up to quarter-sleeve length.
Completer: I love that a simple skinny belt can play the role of completer and pull all the pieces together. In shorts or any other summer outfit, this fellah is the perfect completer piece - it doesn't add any bulk or warmth and it gives your casual shorts a look that's a bit more pulled together.
Accessories: Pairing a solid outfit with a patterned shoe and bag will help it to stand out. And a well-placed splash or two of color never hurt anyone. Ever.
This outfit is a great way to create a seasonal look that breaks away from the traditional t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops look. C'mon...we all do it. But it sure is fun to mix it up every once in a while.
