Mens Ready Made Outfit: Sophisticated Shorts with a Blazer

Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

How do you manage to look sophisticated in shorts?  Pair them with a blazer for instant chic.  Here’s how to do it:

Mix and match fabrics for the jacket and shorts.  What makes this combination so chic is the seemingly effortless pairing of the blazer and shorts.  It’s not a shorts suit–so pick a jacket and shorts in different fabrics and colors.  A couple of easy color combinations?  Navy and grey (as pictured), and khaki and white.

Wear a button down shirt.  Maintain the somewhat formal feel of the outfit by wearing a button down shirt instead of a tee.  The shirt need not be perfectly pressed to be sophisticated; in fact, the casual feel of the blazer and shorts combo calls for a shirt that’s ever so slightly wrinkled.

Slip on a pair of closed toe shoes.  After all, you are wearing a blazer.  Now’s not the time for flip flops.

Bow Trenchcoat

Bow Trench

Looking for a trench that straddles the line between trendy and classic? Look no further. The trench shape and the check fabric ground this jacket, but the bow makes it more fun and flirty.

$121  (approx) at Topshop.
