Fourth of July celebrations tend to involve a number of different activities like boating, backyard BBQ’s and firework displays, and they last from morning to night. Remember our Office Party Attire Approved post? We asked Jason Smith, VP of Product Merchandising for Trunk Club, a men’s clothing service offering high-end men’s clothing hand-picked by a personal stylist and shipped nationwide, to recommend his summer essentials that will take a guy’s look from day to night while providing comfort and style while jumping from activity to activity throughout the upcoming holiday.
“Given the many changes in setting, and because the Fourth is a day-to-night event, I look for clothes that are versatile and functional,” says Jason.
A few of Jason’s favorites include:
White Pants – White pants are a summertime essential and work across a variety of settings. MAC white chinos – $178
Polo – Sporty and functional, polos are also dressier than t-shirts or henleys. Boast polo – $70
Lightweight Layering Piece – Wrapped around the waist for most of the day, a layering piece like this sweatshirt will come in handy when you’re on the water—or still on the roof deck when the nighttime firework shows start wrapping up. Life After Denim Paddle Boat Sweatshirt – $88
SWIMs Lace-Up Loafer – This shoe can be dressed up or down. Because of its unique waterproof construction, it’s also a functional choice for the boat or beach. SWIMs Lace-Up Loafer – $149
Ribbon/Grosgrain Belt – July 4th is a fun, long day. I like to wear an offbeat or interesting belt as a conversation starter, given how many new people I always meet during the course of the celebrations. Boast Red Racquet Belt – $36
