To copy that preppy, sunshine-ready vibe, opt for a short-sleeved lightweight knit to pair with your jeans.

Team yours with a jacket in a similar hue — go for one with exposed stitching and a contrasting corduroy collar to add some flavor to your ’fit. Finish the look with a pair of smart shoes and opt for a checked cap to give a subtle nod to last season.
