Kinowear Lookbook: #16

What you’ll need to put together this look:

1. Gray buttoned vest

2. V-neck tee shirt

3. Black dress pants

4. Black Hugo Boss loafers

5. Von Zipper Skitch sunglasses











First Impressions:

Stand-out summer style.


Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to dress fashionably in the summer heat. One of my answers was this lookbook example.

Wearing a blazer in the blazing heat may be too hot, so swap it out for a dress vest.  This will act as your “jacket” while freeing your arms from all that extra fabric.

Throw this vest on top of a v-neck shirt. A v-neck will keep your neck area cool, but try a long-sleeve for a classier look. I like them because you can pull them up during the day when the sun is out, and push them down when the night gets chillier.

A slick pair of black dress pants are perfect if you’re going to enjoy the city nightlife. But if you’re going for a more casual look, throw on a pair of dark wash jeans and you’re golden.

To complete this simple and classic summer outfit, you’re going to need a pair of loafers. Wear them without socks for that summer outfit touch.

    Like the pieces in this outfit!

    So should I keep the vest open or closed?

  • Dan says:

    Great look! Keep them coming.

  • Nick says:

    This is a really cool summer look. Will probably definitely wear it to College orientation. It would be really nice to have a lookbook that included shorts!

  • Agx says:

    Great job guys i really love your blog ^_^

  • Zee says:

    Love it!

  • Iancredible says:

    what kind of belt should go with this? or no belt at all?

  • Jae says:

    Hi Iancredible, I would wear a black belt to match the black shoes, or you could do a brown woven belt for a more casual touch, for example, to match the laces of the shoes in the photo, or a white belt for a fresh, young look!

  • Jae says:

    Hey Preston,

    For your 3 button vest, you can button the top 2 buttons, or just the center (to keep the casual look). For your 5 button vest, you can leave the top and bottom button undone, and button the rest.

    I’d love to look stylish any day of the year, but what do I do about sweating? I’m some what prone to sweating, and looking good under 3 layers of clothing but sweating enough to show on the innermost layer isn’t exactly ideal. Any tips?

    Oh and, what do you guys think about wearing beaters/A-shirts underneath tops

    At #5 – is that a loafer or boat shoe?

  • Jay Song says:

    @Gazman #5 is a boatshoe! 🙂 You guessed right.
