via Rhone.com

Bikini season is right around the corner which means it's time to change your trajectory from winter comfort layering to beach bod shred. That being said, motivation is hard, especially when the end goal is so far off and you have "time" to procrastinate. This is why we are bringing you the Reign shirt by Rhone today. You need small motivators along your journey to a public-ready shirtless state, and new workout clothes is a great way to do that. Everyone needs an occasion to wear their new gear, and when that excuse is a hard workout... look out ladies because these abs are about to get sharp. Note: this is not a cotton-based shirt, but a nylon-polyester-spandex blend, so it's super soft and moisture wicking but also not to be ironed. 

Available on Rhone.com for $34-$68

"Oh Snap" is what you are gonna say once you get your hands on this all snap-fastening button down beauty from All Saints. Consider this their lightweight take on a classic American flannel. It's made from cotton so it is breathable (and shrinkable so watch out), has 3, count 'em 1,2,3 cuff snap buttons for a little flare and two breast pockets for those gents trying to hide their nips behind an extra layer of cloth.  We suggest going the American route and wear this with some jeans, wayfarers, and either sandals (for the beach) or chuckas (for the bar). You'll have to get it soon though, because right now it's marked down 100 brown coin padre.

The mid-summer break is now over, but that doesn't mean Fall is here yet! There are two and half solid months of warm weather and patio sitting to be had. This means the floral print is still in high rotation.

This floral print long sleeve from Boden is just the right amount of bright, and comes in regular or slim fit, depending on your preference. Right now, it's also super cheap, so don't feel bad about adding another set of flowers to the closet. The options you have the more likely you are to have the right flowers for the right occasion. We suggest you wear this top with gray chinos, slim khakis, or even white shorts.

Saturdays NYC Bruce Dobby Short Sleeve Shirt

via saturdaysnyc.com

Pantone released the color of the year for 2017 a couple months back, and it's Greenery, an oddly bright shade of green, that most of the fashion industry is introducing as more of an olive or sage in their fashion lines. SaturdaysNYC has joined in, coming out with this button down short sleeve shirt in their own shade of sage. This shirt is a cotton-linen blend (65/35) perfect for spring, and fun in the sun if winter ever ends up letting go. The straight hem along the bottom means this shirt is not for tucking, so leave it out, let it flow and stay cool once you find your place of blissful heat. We suggest you wear this with khaki linen pants for the relaxed island look or dark colored chinos for a more out-in-the-city feel.

Todd Snyder Linen Shirt in White

Via Toddsnyder.com

 

The heat wave hitting the US has given us a taste of what is to come. In preparation, we give you this Linen shirt from Todd Snyder. This linen shirt was picked specifically because it has a button down collar. Since linen collars don't have a lot of weight, they tend to curl up or flatten out giving the appearance of wings. The buttons keep the shape of the collar regardless of your activity level. This shirt is also 100% linen, not some cotton combination, allowing it to be lighter, and breath better than its cheaper counterparts. Pair with dark jeans, or khakis and a Corona.

Drake's Blue Chambray Button-Down

Drake's is a famous English brand known across the globe for their 7-fold, high-quality ties. Drake's took this knowledge of fabric and tailoring applied to a soft blue chambray shirt, and made a super comfortable daily wearer. The cutaway collar is a classic design, and the buttons are mother-of-pearl from Austrailia. There are no buttons for the collar, so we suggest magnetic collar stays like wurkinstiffs. A fit note, the chest a good size for most based on their sizes, but consider minor tailoring for the waist if you are slimmer, as this is a standard fit shirt.
