STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Going to Bermuda

The preppy esthetic for the male wardrobe has created handsome staples that exude American classics. Go-to pieces like white oxford shirts, leather penny loafers, argyle cardigans and chinos have shaped many a wardrobe for the stylish man. When the warmth soon arrives a signature is the embracing of nautical details in everyday attire. So whether you’re boating in Nantucket, coast-side in Santa Barbara or having a linen canopy picnic in the Hamptons, don’t dare arrive unless you’re in a fantastic pair of Bermuda shorts. These bottoms have a day and night appeal and create the perfect base to a casual approach or a star-studded evening.

This Fashionisto cruised the school campus in khaki Bermudas paired with a pale blue button down, black striped tee, and matte leather oxfords. With his own twist he looks modern and cool with a simplistic display of sophistication. The point is to have no fuss because, after all, shorts are supposed to give a sense of freedom. Try to downsize, but maximize with detail and quality. My favorites consist of outfits that coincide with the urban guy’s regimen. For a bicycle ride down Los Feliz try the lightweight chinos in khaki along with a chambray shirt and boat shoes. For a professional designation at a South Bay event try a Mad Men gray with a white button down, tortoise frames, and patent leather oxfords. When going for a wilder touch go for a splatter paint motif on navy with an oversized camel crew neck and maroon accessories. That’s what makes them eternally stylish, classic pieces have the diversity to match up with all types of personalities.

Make your trip down to Bermuda just make sure you come back.
