Lately, I have noticed more and more men wearing necklaces. I’m not talking about oversized, diamond encrusted chains (à la T-Pain). I’m thinking more along the lines of really subtle, understated pendants. I have to admit that this is definitely a trend I can get behind. You have to appreciate a man who isn’t afraid to wear a little jewelry.

Guys, I’m taking it back to the basics for this post. If by some chance you do not have a basic black shirt in your closet, you must (yes, MUST) remedy this situation immediately. Any man can pull off a plain black shirt. Actually, I’m going to take it one step further – every man looks GOOD in a plain black shirt. It can be a V-neck, long-sleeve, or even button down, but as long as it’s plain and black, I assure you that you will look good. My personal preferences on men are black crew neck t-shirts and black short-sleeve polos, but that is just me.
Some of you may be asking, “Why black? Why not white or navy blue?”. My real honest answer is, “I do not know”. That is to say that I don’t know why black looks good on everyone. It could be because a black shirt can be paired with anything from jeans to suits. It could also be that black does not wash out or contrast with any skin tone. A basic black shirt can be incorporated into any style or wardrobe whether you’re preppy, athletic, punk or an awesome combination of them all. Basic black shirts just work. Period.

Who doesn’t love a man in a suit? Just because it’s hot out does not mean you cannot still rock a suit. Lightweight linens and breezy cottons will keep you cool and comfortable while still looking put together and polished. Here are a few of my favorite summer suit pieces.
