Summer is fast approaching and let’s be real, the temps are almost catching up to the calendar. Gone are the days of marshmallow puffers and wooly coats, so I couldn’t be happier. Although I currently spend most of my time in NYC, I remember just how important those 100 days of summer are to us Chicagoans. Heck, we even had a Bravo show glorifying them. Our insane metropolis keeps us wanting seconds, thirds, and more because of the moments we can only experience in this short window of time. Whether it’s watching a ball game, yoga in the park, going to an outdoor concert, or drinking on one of the many rooftop venues, Chicago definitely serves up some world-class summer fun.
To get ready for the season, I’ve teamed up with Banana Republic to bring you guys a business casual look that will take you from spring to summer seamlessly. Whether you’re going to the office or just down to the bar, the versatility of the humble trench coat makes it a perfect choice for almost any situation. I’ve paired it here with a bright plaid shirt and a slim fitting non-iron cotton pant for an understated dose of color.
