Distressed Denim, $39.99 |H&M|

One of my favorite trends for the season and something I've been rocking for some time now is distressed denim. It's all about ripping, bleaching, and patches; your jeans should look worn in and vintage. 

How to wear it: The more rips - the better, but avoid styles that have full cut out/holes. Also, think about the occasion and where you'd be wearing this; distressed denim is not office friendly (unless you have a very informal office). You can easily pair distressed denim with a basic henley t-shirt or woven layered with a denim or bomber jacket.

Cotton Bomber Jacket, $80.00 |Topman|

We've seen bomber jackets in menswear for a few seasons, and they are back with updated colors and fabrics. Bombers are versatile for low-key days and keep your looks fresh and contemporary. 

How to wear it: The 50s bomber should be a staple this season with darker colors (black, navy, olive, and khaki). Bombers pair easily with denim and trousers for an updated athleisure look.

Linen Extended Collar Shirt, $39.90 |Zara|

Things get even more relaxed with the fifties style Cuban collar shirt. Reminiscent of your grandfather's shirt, this style is for bold trendsetters. With this style, it's all about the fit and fitted is the way to go. 

How to wear it: This notched lapel style shirt should be kept open and paired with solid cropped trousers. A bold statement shirt, it should also be in a solid color or a plain neutral design.
