Head to toe: a simple look to beat the monsoon showers

A checked shirt in gorgeous Madras colours keeps the flag flying for summer, with long sleeves for those cooler moments. Pair with rugby shorts – yes really! This is a genuine trend I’ve spotted on the streets of East London recently and need only be worn with caution if you live anywhere near the hooray-Henry zones of SW London. The shape is actually classic and, when not worn with sportswear, can look surprisingly stylish.

Head to toe: cool summer pick for hot nights

By cchapman on July 7th, 2009

TopToToe.jpgWith sales in full swing and the heat here to stay, now is the time to put together an outfit for those balmy evenings when you want to turn heads during your evening ‘paseo’. A mix of high street and simple staples pulls together current menswear trends without trying too hard. First up, this very fun sailor hat from Topman, with authentic braiding detail. With such quirky headgear best to keep the rest low key, hence the simple tank (buy a size up) and black cuffed shorts. The mix of brown shoes with black clothing is very 2009 and these battered-looking Oxfords would look great matched with cotton socks in a soft pastel shade, like a cream or lemon.

This is an easy look that works equally well whether you are tearing up a beach-side disco or enjoying cocktail hour amidst white stucco.
