It’s easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of trends, but there’s just something about the whole shorts-and-high-top-sneakers combo that we adore for hip and laid-back summer style. With this in mind, we’ve put together a couple of men’s ensembles that really speak to the carefree, effortless style of summer.
These outfits are perfect for cruising the beach cities on the weekend, or even for a quick summer roadtrip!

Sometimes, a guy just has to dress things up a bit, whether it's for date night, or just to take things up a notch. The button-down shirt is the easiest way to achieve a dressier casual look. Even if you spend most of your days in t-shirts and jeans, you should always make room for some fresh button-down shirts in your closet.
Here are three classic and supremely wearable styles of button-downs to rock this season:
Plaid short-sleeved button-down shirt: The L-R-G Trees Company shirt is a classic example of a nice plaid button-down. It gives you a more polished appeal than your average tee but is still just as wearable.
Vertical striped shirt: A sleek and simple shirt with subtle vertical stripes, like the Krew Putnam Short-sleeved Woven is a great way to dress up your jeans this summer. It’s casual enough for the weekends, but still feels really put together.
Solid long-sleeved shirt: Paired with some dark-wash denim and sleek loafers, this timeless look is always handsome. The Crooks & Castles Corner Store shirt is a cool option with just the right amount of subtle striped detail along the sides.
Push your game to another level of cool with this collegiate-inspired Crooks & Castles cardigan. This elevated rendition of the classic cardi takes the idea of streetwear and gives it a very classic prep-school feel. Who says those two worlds can’t co-exist? Pair this fresh cardigan with a clean solid tee and your favorite pair of jeans. These would look exceptionally at home with a pair of boat shoes or a pair of lace-up boots. This look is not only smart and fresh; it works for both the spring and fall.
Crooks and Castles is making a name for themselves quickly in the streetwear industry by delivering products that are tailored to the fashion-minded male. Teaming up with Vado (of The U.N. with Cam'Ron), Crooks and Castles aim to make this spring their best season to date. Their new approach to classic pieces like the cardigan are setting them apart from the competition. The Crooks and Castles Castle Rook Cardigan is constructed of soft cotton railroad stripe fabric that puts a spin on your average dress shirt/cardigan. Rule the roost as the rook rules the castle with this killer cardigan. Take a look at the Crooks and Castles collection at Zappos Street.
Crooks & Castles established their name on the streets, playing not-so-quietly in the background. As they blow up the scene and shine, their brand name continues to enter households across the nation. Crooks & Castles combines the swagger of the streetwear underworld with the nobility of high fashion, creating unique graphics and styles for men and women alike.
They embody the classic street hustle appeal with open arms and escalate it to a higher place of fashion. The Crooks lifestyle is boldly displayed across each and every t-shirt, representing a distinctive and different way of life. For example, the Burning the Track Tee rocks a biking cupid print with a spade and horned lettering. Eat up some asphalt in a Crooks & Castles tee that shows onlookers how you’re living. By collaborating with innovative minds, the direction that Crooks & Castles is in leads them towards a more creative, experimental lifestyle with bolder graphics and edgier designs.
From mixtapes to professional skateboarders, Crooks & Castles keeps it street. Keep an eye out for the Crooks as they continue to crank out fresh new styles all day, every day.
