This Week in Style: Essential Summer Upgrades

Retire your worn-out standbys and dress better this summer.



Though your jeans and button-downs can easily transition from spring to summer, you need some warm-weather garments to take you through the second or third month of relentless sun. It’s time to give your outfits some new life. Retire an old pair of shorts and that hole-ridden t-shirt, and replace them with some upgraded sun-friendly clothing. Embrace the camp collar, try some chic slip-ons or indulge in a better watch; just don’t let your style slip just because it’s terribly hot. – John Zientek
