Don’t be frightened. The weather ups and downs in your current forecast is set to settle at some point and when it does, it’ll be smooth sailing.
As most guys do, I went through a preppy stage in life. I let boat shoes become my go to, even if I knew I was landlocked and going for a walk on pure concrete. Cargo shorts/pants took over my bottoms drawer and slowly but surely I became a deckhand on drylands. While I may have move past that yachty time in my life I still find a way to incorporate certain keep pieces of that time gone by into my wardrobe now.
For instance, J. Crew has a capsule of nautical adventure ready shoes like the ones above that will have you cruising the high seas (or maybe just a calm lake) in style. I also love an amazing layer to throw on top of my tee should the weather turn wet or cold. The one above is a chic raglan-sleeve crewneck with a ribbed texture and it easily layers over your favorite tee or under a blazer, making it a great transitional piece as the seasons change. Need a perfect pair of shorts to go from dock to yacht? These shorts pay homage to the classic bermuda without the frat daddy reputation. Class it up with these narrow leg, refined cut and a clean looking shorts that will let your legs breathe without the cargo need.
So, don’t hit any rough waves when it comes to going preppy when the weather warms. Stick to my tricks and tips for a look thats a total catch.
