As the weather is warming up, many men are starting to pull away from the darker washes to lighter ones. A great alternative from the usual light blues is white. It’s fresh and most of the time unexpected to be seen worn casually. They are not just for Labor Day parties or a Hamptons day anymore. They can work with anyone’s closet, whether you are preppy and put together or someone that has more of a street approach to how they dress. The ideas are endless. You can see how I styled the Simon Miller Stinson Jeans (available here) three different ways below.
I could not resist doing an almost all white look when we got asked to do this post. You just can’t go wrong pairing a great fitting t shirt with a great fitting pair of jeans. Whether it be the same color or not. I chose a shirt by Jil Sander, Luv AJ ID bracelet, a beanie by The Elder Statesman, and a pair of classic Timberland boots. I initially wanted to finish this look off with a gray beanie, but felt like it was washing out the look and giving a marshmallow effect. Adding the red brings life to the outfit and helps pick up the gold from the bracelet and brown in the shoes.
This look is for the more fashionable forward guy, I believe. In this outfit here, I paired the jeans with the same Jil Sander t shirt and Luv AJ bracelet as the look above. I added the sweater by Henrik Vibskov for a bit of graphic and pop to the look then finished it off with the Balenciaga Derby boots. I would suggest wearing this look with the jeans cuffed to add to the Ska vibe that it gives off.
This look would have to be the most me, minus the pink, if I had to be honest. A plaid shirt, graphic tee and some some simple shoes and belt to finish it off is just perfect to wear on a day off. It is casual without looking sloppy and is just plain comfortable. I chose a flannel by Pendleton to either layer over the Givenchy shirt or tie around the waist. I then finished the look off with an A.P.C. belt and Common Project sneakers. I would even suggest adding a chain necklace if you are looking to elevate the look even more.
-So how many of you guys are looking forward to donning white denim this season?
