In need of a wardrobe refresh now that summer has arrived? Here are the easy updates you can make to your tried and true classics, along with some on-trend pieces to add to your line up, for endlessly cool smart casual looks. From fun new party shirts to classic linen and wear-anywhere tees and shorts, these are the essentials that will have you ready (and well dressed) for any occasion.

ASSEMBLY LABEL Casual Short Sleeve Shirt in White

Linen for days

A linen shirt hits the sweet spot of being relaxed and light enough to throw on for the beach, but smart enough to dress up for a barbeque, party or even a more formal ‘do. An array of short- and long-sleeve linen shirts in your sartorial arsenal will mean you’re effortlessly prepared when it comes to any occasion.

Whether it’s the beach, a pool or elsewhere, you’re bound to spend plenty of hours by a body of water this season. Turn the summer staple into a statement with fun patterns and colours, which will double as party shorts for a backyard barbeque, drinks or game of lawn bowls, too.

BRIXTON Melter Bucket Hat

Top it all off

For a look that works as well at the beach as it does at the bar, opt for an of-the-moment bucket hat or a cool twist on the fedora. When it comes to shades, stick to the classics: Ray-Bans are timeless and take the guesswork out of picking the perfect pair.
