Here's a quick summer look book with two casual outfit ideas for men. The first is super casual (shorts and a t-shirt), and the second is just a bit more dressy. I hope you enjoy these quick look book style videos. Links to everything I'm wearing are below!

You should collab with Nick Wooster sometime (he's fairly famous, so it might not be in the cards for you yet). He is definitely one of my style inspirations, and at 5'6 shows how a short guy can wear it well.
The Modest Man Yes. It's when you just tuck it in ever so slightly in the front. The trend started from Queer Eye I think but it's making it's way into the straight world slowly. I've been experimenting with it cause my girlfriend told me to try it and it's not bad man.
Enjoyed the format and preferred the first outfit, although I think it is perhaps too simple/obvious to warrant a video.
Also, I think you need to "balance" the components of the out fit more realistically and work out whether finished "look" justifies the cost.
I personally do not think $250 white trainers are warranted for that "look"; a pair of Stan Smiths or similar would work just as well at a fraction o the price. I don't know the price of the Jimmy Au's shorts, but I am guessing they are around the $150 range and again I don't see they offer anything to the complete look over say $50 dress shorts...
I also don't really feel that bag goes with either outfit and again who is going to spring $500 for a leather bag to go with such "ordinary" and frankly a fairly run of the mill looking clothes??
Pretty much goes for the Rolex as well; a $50-$100 Citizen or Seiko would have been a far more realistic and fitting choice...
Leaving the watch aside, I am betting the first outfit would have a retail cost of around $900 to $1000 but the same "look" could be achieved and be just as effective, on a sub $200 budget, even including a watch....
Thanks for the thoughtful comment, Peter! I see what you’re saying, although I do choose to pay more for super high quality basics (because that’s what I’m wearing most days). This outfit could definitely be replicated for 1/5 the price. A few years ago, I probably would have looked for the more affordable version. Nothing wrong with that at all.
First time I’ve noticed how thin your wedding band is (and it looks great). What mm? Could make for an interesting video to address wedding band sizes when most guys seem to be going with massive 7mm thick bands that look disproportionately large on their fingers.
What's the best time of year to buy from Peter Manning? I like their stuff, but a lot of it is unjustifiably expensive to me. I get their pricing for jackets and outerwear, but $70 for a henley? IDK. When's the best time of year to hit the clearance section?
Thanks for the info! You've become my favorite content creator on this platform and it's awesome to have watched you grow over the past two years and surely in the years to come. BTW, Outfit 2>Outfit 1, but Outfit 1 shoes> Outfit 2 shoes. Love the format!
Maybe it's only my imppression but can't find any other place for a boat shoes than a beach or some close-to-sea activites. So for me first look or the second one if you replace the boat shoe with a loafer like this: https://au.lookastic.com/men/brown-leather-tassel-loafers/shop/asos-2082533.
I really like the second outfit with the camp
collar shirt...that collar always reminds me of summer dressing. Not sure about the brief case with both outfits. Messenger bag or something more like a satchel would have been nice to see, the brief is still a little too business for the looks that are killing it otherwise.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
