his style 4

If you're a regular around here, you know I like to pepper menswear posts throughout my female-focused content (lately: here and here). As much as I love shopping for myself, it's sometimes more fun (or pressing!) to buy for a guy. The options are comparatively limited, making focusing in and finding something great more manageable. And it's easy to be stylish while keeping the overall look simple and effortless; something as small (and low risk) as a contrast collar shows you're up to speed. Casual button-downs are wardrobe essentials all year, and a transitioning season signals it's time to reel in new recruits. The J.Crew "secret wash" gingham shirt was the star of summer, and for good reason: it's classic, ageless and easy. But as the weather gets cooler, layering warmer fabrics into the fold becomes a priority. And gingham isn't the only pattern that—to quote Crew—"every guy needs in his arsenal." Blackwatch and denim are foolproof. Unexpected horizontal stripes and pieced panels are fresh. Contrast piping and elbow patches hint of swagger. A small-scale floral print is surprisingly masculine and confident, and a bright pop of color gives a dark lumberjack flannel urban appeal. Any of these styles could be the "J.Crew Gingham Shirt" of fall. Get ahead of the Instagram feed and stock up now.
