Summer Style Trend

It's Summer 2009 boys, are you still sporting last year's look? Don't be caught off guard, here's one summer style trend that is easy to capture; This season is all about relaxing and going with the flow. We are seeing a lot of collegiate tees and cut off shorts. Grays, Whites, & Khakis are all over, as well as burnout tees and light weight fabrics.

To achieve this laid-back look, shop around for great styles that are smart and versatile. Save Khaki has a great line of cut off corduroy shorts that are very in this season. These styles showcase a unique, quirky feel that's perfect for summer. Note the detailing, length and cut of the shorts as well as the raw edge finish (a must have in my book). Compliment this look by adding a vintage collegiate inspired top by Chip & Pepper, Chaser, Diesel, or our own private label UGT. Tie the look together with a canvas belt and you have a new hip look.

If you want to accessorize this look, keep it simple; A comfortable pair of sandals (might I suggest Bed Stu), and casual watch are all you need (try a funky Diesel watch). If you need a bag, go with a messenger style or a fun fashion tote. This trend is all about having a laid-back attitude and enjoying the moment. Until next, love, peace and all things fashion.
