He always gravitates towards similar styles and silhouettes so I always try to make sure he is choosing pieces that may be updated or don’t necessarily look like items he already owns. Dave definitely relies on his own essentials and this summer that includes short sleeve button down shirts, shorts, casual sneakers and a great pair of sunglasses.

I love the tailored cut of these Bonobos shorts. They are the perfect length for summer and Dave loved them so much that he bought them in three colors. I had been trying to get him to try a short sleeve button down shirt for years and he always felt kind of silly. We finally bought this Brooks Brothers shirt (currently 40% off!) and now he can’t get enough of them. I love that he kept this look monochromatic and threw on his FAVORITE Jack Purcell slip on sneakers (he wears these almost everyday). The faded blue goes with everything but they also come in this awesome grey color.

What is your favorite look to see on your guy? Anything that you find especially attractive? I’m a sucker for some sexy Ray-Bans and casual sneakers – I’m all about that low maintenance look.
