July 10, 2019

So, take a peep at the three looks below, from tailored utility styles to eye-popping colorways without a buffalo plaid in sight. After all — it’s always hip to be square.

For a high-summer spin on the classic check, channel the guy above and swap out your trusty denim shorts for a utility style instead. With the multi-pocket look leading the way for SS19 and SS20 thanks to the most recent run of menswear shows, now’s the time to update. A sleeveless printed tee keeps things easy-breezy, and for throwing real shade, cop a pair of visor-style sunnies to top it all off.

Talking of swapping out denim, your jeans could do with a day off this season too. Some check pants like the pair above seamlessly bridge that tricky gap between smart and casual looks with ease. All you need is a fresh white tee to match those accents and some sneakers with day-glo shades ensure you're repping the utility and neon trends simultaneously. Just swap the kicks out for some loafers and you’ve effortlessly updated the look for a smarter vibe.
