Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Wearing white is a staple for the summer. After all, you’ve probably been hiding all your white attire waiting to unveil them after Memorial Day. No matter the occasion, wearing white with a touch of color, yes black is a color, can make you look very refined. Make sure you stick to light fabrics like linen for suits.

So you and your beau got an invite to a hot summer party and you want to look like a pair without going overboard. Here are two outfits that will make you both look chic.

Ike Behar at ShopStyle

I can’t resist a man in a suit so I chose a summer version for the gents. I paired a Ralph Lauren Congressman Linen Sport Coat with a Theory Damien Cotton/Linen Shorts to make a shorts suit. Black is chic and flattering so I chose and Ike Behar Solid Black Dress Shirt to go underneath the suit. Complete the look with a Stefano Ricci Satin Tie, Jump Men’s Slick Mocs, Risky Business Sunglasses, Emporio Armani Men’s Black Plate Watch, and a Christy’s – Black Woven Tie Fedora. Tres chic!
