BRIGHT & CRISP: THE PERFECT MATCH
Khakis and oxford shoes are like peanut butter and jelly—always just right. But top them off with a bold striped sweater and a pair of gunmetal shades and you’ve got a look that will take you from afternoon errands to cocktails on the patio. Fan-tastic.

A TWIST ON CLASSIC
Tan cords with a denim button-up? Totally timeless. Add a bold accessory like a punchy watch or a bright tie (or both!), and of a pair of brown nubuck oxfords from Original Penguin and you’ve got a fresh twist that’s likely to turn a few heads. Fun, but put-together when jeans and a t-shirt just won’t cut it.

SHARP BUT UNEXPECTED
For work, meeting the parents, or anything in between. Looking sharp doesn’t have to be boring. Mellow out a bright button down with a simple, dark pullover. Pair colored khakis (totally unexpected) and a sharp pair of Ben Sherman cap-toe oxfords and you’ll have the respect of everyone in the room.
COLOR & PATTERNS: DON’T BE AFRAID
Let blazers and suede oxfords create structure, and bring in dark denim and a scarf to lighten things up. There’s plenty of room for a bold print or plaid button down but if you’re still not sure, just hide behind a slick pair of shades and act like you own the place.
