Talented Mr. Ripley Look

L-O-V-E the foppish summer throwbacks neatening up men’s summer collections. There seems to be two distinct summer camps at play, one being the fringed fantastics flying the flag for festivals (wow, that was a lot of F’s). The other camp, raising their eyebrows at the revellers and my previous excessive alliteration (lazy writing) are the more discerning summer gents.

This gentile creature sees a rise in temperatures as no excuse to let sartorial judgements slide. His shorts are pleated, his rolled sleeve carefully ironed and his nails filed filed within the last week. Rich tan leather accessories add to the Italian Riviera-air,  with a polite nod to all things ‘Talented Mr. Ripley’.

Gwynnie, Jude and Matt dabbling with summer smarts in The Talented Mr Ripley.

Shorts need to be smart and belted, or for a more frivolous seaside pair, opt for a cotton checked swimmers. Even with the latter, your shirt still needs to be tucked in. A classic Oxford short sleeve works wonders, or a form fitting smart polo will also do the job. Finish the look with some original rounded fifties shades and a (well thumbed) penguin classic.

Navy Stripes and Springy Green Outfit

Borrowed from the boys, navy blue sailor stripes are oh-so en vogue, and this dress is a prime specimen. A springy green, capped-sleeve top tucks into the wide-cinched waist, and a full circle skirt drops just below the knee.  This fresh summery take on the perfect vintage silhouette pairs perfectly with espadrilles and a sun hat, or a scarf and Fellini-esque sunglasses. You can find this stunning dress at Shabby Apple
