I have long been a fan of seersucker and red short trousers.
Being the official fabric of summer (Lucky it feels like summer all year round in the tropics), these short trousers, when worn with a classic solid pique shirt or button down brings oomph to any outfit.
I recently got myself a pair of extremely lightweight red and seersucker short trousers from Ralph Lauren and guess what, they are definitely one of the best hot weather options - think country club chic.
I have always believed that being sloppy is never an option. Beat the heat by cutting it short (just right above the knees).
Of course, no summer look would be complete without a pair of espadrilles, plimsolls and loafers.
