For part II of our collaboration with Perry Ellis we discover a more casual take on menswear, blending athletic inspired pieces to create an updated weekend casual look. First, let’s all rejoice for the sweater with a built-in hat is back in style and the line between casual and dressy is blurred. A solid go-to hooded sweatshirt is a wardrobe staple. I wear mine in more situations than I do any of my sweaters. Worn by itself, you have an effortless look fit for running Sunday errands, but the simple addition of a button-down shirt dresses it up enough for Sunday brunch.
My trousers continue the trend of blurring lines between dressy and casual. I know nothing beats the comfort of wearing your favorite sweats, but we all know they’re far from office appropriate. These trousers offer the best of both worlds in the form of a pant you can tuck a shirt into, with a slim-yet-relaxed fit that’s reminiscent of loungewear. This pair from Perry Ellis is made from a cotton jersey blend that gives them a luxe look and feel, with enough structure to dress them up just enough. I’ve paired it with a colored sole brogue and classic club-masters for a cool, casual weekend look. After all, spring is all about lightweight, comfortable pieces and brunching with your crew.
