Pack reliable combos. For the daytime, a simple pairing of a swimsuit, flip flops and a slightly smarter shirt works great – especially if you’re planning on going to a nice lunch after the beach. Try colour and patterns during the day, then go more sophisticated in the evenings.
Summer-black looks are so cool. Just add a bit of interest with some jewellery – like a beaded necklace or a camp-inspired bracelet. For the evening, black silk drawstring trousers with a bib-front, a Cavalet white evening shirt and smart sandals is a great combo – look to Ancient Greek or Saint Laurent for the best sandals.
‘Summer in the city’ looks don’t have to be boring. A lightweight jacket is such a hero – unless it’s one of those intensely hot and humid New York days. A light workwear-inspired jacket like our Wittering is perfect with jeans and trainers – or a more rugged city sandal.
Having multiple denim options is key – white, black, slouchy, straight leg and so on. Adam is always stopped for his Levi’s Engineered pair – they’re just the perfect baggy jean. Add a navy heavy-gauge cotton jumper – Adam opts for Loro Piana – plus a white t-shirt.
Drawstring shorts are a must-have. Styled sporty or dressed up and paired with a great pair of sunnies, there’s just so much choice. Finish with a cool baseball cap for a weekend look that could just as easily be worn on the beach.
