Solid long-sleeve shirts are great for work, but what should you wear when you’re ready to let loose? We love patterned short-sleeve button-downs for the spring and summertime. And even though it’s a small detail, we believe that whether or not you tuck your shirt makes a big difference in an outfit.
Wearing neutral shorts or pants lets you play with patterns on your shirt. And if you decide to tuck it in, complete your outfit with a complementary shoe and belt combo. Think of the tuck as your go-to move for a more polished look.
This outfit is easy, breezy summertime—bright shorts, an interesting but subtle shirt worn untucked, and slip-on sneakers. This combination has graduation parties or backyard BBQs written all over it.
