…and what to pack it all in:
SG Says: Traveling by car? Pack a weekender bag. Getting on a plane? Go for the carry-on.
Wear it well: For an on-the-go outfit, layers are definitely your friend. Throw on the jeans with your jacket for a look that’s stylish any day this summer – just don’t forget your shades.
Beers at an outdoor bar
SG Says: If brunch is on your weekend agenda, add a dressier element to your casual shorts with a classic white button down. Then keep it breezy in a pair of textured espadrilles.
On the town
SG Says: Have we mentioned that we’re all about trunks and a short sleeve button down? Especially when they’re fan-favorite basics that have a little extra detail. Bonus points: that snazzy bandana.
SG Says: Nothing screams summer more than a comfy worn-in shirt – and we love the look of it. Bring a jacket for those evening temperatures, but keep it tied together with your suede sneakers.
SG Says: The stylish way to hide any BBQ stains and beers spills? A floral pattern, of course. Pop on your millennial pink cap to complete this comfortable yet unique daytime look.
SG Says: Bring back a touch of those long layers for the trip home by draping a shacket over your trusty button down. Simple and effective for the win, guys.
