Style Calling is proud to present Summer Calling; a 4 part trend series focusing on key looks for your favourite activities during the summer season. We’ve partnered up with some of our favourite brands to bring you the ultimate style guide.

Upgrade your look for a night out with the boys by taking a few cues from the Italians. Breaking out of your shell can be difficult but taking small steps can help lead your style in the right sartorial direction. Instead of pulling out your suit and tie, opt for separates that come together based on fabrication, print, or color.  Looking for inspiration? Take a look at the likes of Nick Wooster and Angel Ramos; the kings of street style. Both men are the perfect example of comfort, fit, and effortless style – in every occasion.

During the warmer months, it can be difficult to rock a suit but you can keep cool by focusing on light weight fabrics like cotton and linen. We put Rio in a pair of linen white pants with a dark blue polka dot button-up long sleeve shirt from Le Chateau and paired the look with a cotton light blue blazer from H&M.

We built the look around the polka dot button-up, focusing on the blue tones and breaking it up with the white pants. With a brown belt, and matching oxfords in a blue denim and brown leather from Aldo – we reinvented European street style for the West Coast man. You can use the same formula with almost anything in your closet. Keeping in mind that finding the perfect balance can come from a little trend research, knowing your fit and comfort based on your needs.
