The short-sleeve button-down
There is nothing less cool than a droopy short sleeve button down shirt. Just because there are buttons down the front of the shirt, it does not make it appropriate for work. In fact, you’ll probably match the weird
Socks or no socks?
Moving onto socks, it is never okay to wear shoes without socks to the office (unless you’re working for Facebook, than you can wear flip flops). Loafers without socks are reserved for casual outings; lunch on the weekend, a trip to the Cape, or to the bar with your buddies. In the office setting, we suggest thin socks for summer that allow your feet to breathe. Additionally, if you are wearing shoes without socks, make sure to monitor the smell of your kicks. When worn without socks, shoes can start to smell pretty foul in a matter of days.
Shorts: the real story
Finally, shorts should only be worn in casual settings and never to the office. Even on the hottest days, keep your shorts at home. As to the weekends, unless you are in the military, refrain from cargo shorts. Additionally, gym shorts should be reserved for the gym and daisy dukes should be reserved for women. We recommend non-pleated shorts that reach a few inches above the knee. Again, colors and patterns can be used to keep things interesting and showcase personality. To add style, wear a linen short paired with a cool loafer for your Newport outing!
