CLOSET REVIVAL: GUY’S EDITION

Summer’s here, and some of those warm weather staples could use a refresh. Bring your look up to speed with a few strategic pieces.

The Flight Pant

Jogger lovers, meet your new friend for humidity-soaked days. The flight pant has an easy fit with natural, lightweight construction that feels breezy in the heat. And if you’ve ever struggled with the perfect roll, the hidden button cuffs have you covered.


The Contrast PoloA polo is the perfect polished/casual balance to strike when it’s too hot for a shirt and tie. If the occasion calls for something even classier, pair one with a suit jacket or blazer and clean-finish jeans.



Indigo Blue Button-UpsDeep blues and true indigo dyes are a big deal in button-ups right now. If you wear a lot of black, it’s the perfect time to switch up to something a little lighter.


The Patched BomberSummer isn’t all about lightening up. You’ve got your night games, rainouts and random chilly days in the mix. Take ’em all on with the current champ in men’s outerwear styles.

From high school football star to model on the verge, Torin Verdone is one to watch – and that won’t be hard with those piercing baby blues.


Henry Watkins is a triple threat. He’s ridiculously good looking, plays multiple instruments and volunteers his time to children.

SWATCH REPORT: SILKY SOFT TWILL

Silky Soft Twill

Womens Soft Twill Blouse

What is silky soft twill? It’s a fabric so fabulous that we’ve become a little obsessed, sprinkling it throughout our Spring 2016 collection.

Though it’s made from bleached wood pulp, the fabric – known generically as lyocell – has an amazing hand feel, like sand-washed silk. It’s in the same family as rayon and offers the same beautiful drape, but typically with less wrinkling and a bit more substance. With the way it takes to dye, the fabric also makes a great, lightweight stand-in for denim.

Womens Soft Twill Blouse

 

A silky soft twill boyfriend shirt makes a 90s-inspired slip dress daytime appropriate for a patio brunch with the squad, or pop it over a swimsuit and shorts if you’re headed to the beach. Pair a twill crop top with your favorite maxi skirt and gladiator sandals for your favorite music festival, or a trip to a street fair.

We love silky soft twill this season because the lightweight construction is perfect for spring weather, and the fabric’s versatility makes it ideal for any event on your social calendar.

We’re trying it in casual dresses and moto jackets, and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on it. Once you do, let us know what you think with a comment here or a pic on Instagram with #ExpressLife.
