It might be hard to find a summer look that transitions from daytime to nighttime. Kwame, here, has found a casual yet GQ look that has him looking fresh walking around B-More. His best accessory, his fedora, puts baseball caps to shame and paired with a crisp white shirt says “I’m relaxed but not sloppy.” This outfit can be concluded with almost any shoe, from a sneaker to loafer, whatever’s more comfortable for your outing.

The cargo short is always a good piece to have, hence why it never really went out of style. What man doesn’t need 10 pockets on their shorts? The below-the-knee cut is great in the heat and the khaki color keeps the look a little dressier than denim. You can literally find a cargo short at almost any men’s clothing store for around $30-45.

I think this look started in biblical days. Guys underestimate the power of a white linen shirt, but not Kwame. His button-down is giving him plenty of ventilation while giving him a crisp and polished look. And good news for the laundry-challenged, this shirt is supposed to have a bit of a wrinkled look so step away from the iron and just throw it on. Old Navy has a great deal on these for just $19.50.

Michael Jackson wore one, so that should be enough to make you consider it. Fedoras have made a big comeback and given men a new option for headwear. The great thing about this stylish hat is that there’s one for all seasons. Color and fabric will determine which time of year you should rock yours. Stop by the Express to find your new favorite accessory for $36.50.

Men’s sunglasses can be tricky. You want a masculine look that does the job and feels comfortable. Kwame’s tinted aviators are a good pick. Tints come in many different colors but darker ones look better with this outfit. If the aviator style and shape doesn’t work for you, find another style that works for you and your face shape. Your glasses shouldn’t be suspended above your nose or stopping up your nostrils. Aldo has the styles you want for only $12.
