Our teenage model Robert is illustrating a classic summer style for men that never loses its appeal. The reference here to boating and the ocean is undeniably timeless as well as a perfect pairing of the contrast of black and white. The base of this look is the GAP white cotton short in a classic mid length. It's time guys, to ditch the baggy and embrace much sportier tennis short length if you’ve got an athletic build. We added in our model's own striped v-neck t-shirt and layered a thin cotton black and white striped Merona sweater over it. His own on-trend deck shoes by Van’s in a denim canvas, read sporty and casually stylish. They are a great fashion choice for any guy of any age when it comes to summer footwear. We threw in some vintage Ray Ban-style sunglasses with a clear acrylic frame to keep the vibe light and bright like the season ahead. Men’s style tip: Wearing a striped t-shirt or lightweight sweater is an easy way to get some nautical appeal going for any guy!

Rachel, our model mom-to-be, looks beach ready in this awesome tunic in vibrant teal pattern. Here is a style tip for you. No matter what actual size a gal is, if you happen to be in a family way, the plus size section at Goodwill might just hold some style surprises for you! Check out this Maggie Barnes rich teal cotton jacquard, size 3X top that works as a fabulous tunic/beach cover up for our model (size 12) that was due to have her second child shortly after we photographed her! She looks rich, fun, elegant and comfortable, too. By using a host of accessories that had beachy appeal, we allow the vibrant colors and pattern of the tunic take center stage. Keep an eye out for coral reef inspired jewelry, woven handbags like this one, as well as the neutral chunky heeled sandals that help add those playful summer touches to this ensemble.
