Short or long, the swimsuit made so debated! If you are looking for versatility, the shorts, in mid-thigh, will satisfy all styles, morphology and generations. Unless you prefer the pool version, even shorter and tighter but only suitable for the thinnest and most muscular of us... Like Cary Grant in "La main au collet" or Daniel Craig alias James Bond. The longest models, very comfortable, call "boadshort", often with floral motifs will delight Hawaiian beach lovers or Kelly Slater surfers. 

When to wear invisible socks?

While low socks are to be banished, invisible socks find their place in the casual shoes of the elegant man... Provided they do not get noticed. Ideal in summer, they are combined with sneackers, velvet calf brogues or moccasins. Never to Richelieus or formal Derbies who only tolerate knee-high. If you are not subject to the hardships of sweating, wear your bucks and barefoot loafers. More chic and Dolce Vita!

How to wear the loose or adjusted linen shirt?

The cut determines the use. Comfort does not exclude style. If you wear it under a jacket or under a jacket, a fitted model is essential to avoid the unsightly accordion effect. Over a chino, jeans or bermuda shorts, the larger version will be more suitable for this casual outfit. And this, whatever your build. If the shirt trend is raging, it is chosen exclusively with long sleeves and is worn slightly wrinkled. 

How to wear a seersucker jacket?

It is the most popular summer jacket among Anglo-Saxons.slider vestes 5

Its embossed striped knife, therefore breathable, is particularly suitable for excessive heat.

In straight or, more rarely, crossed, blue, pink, light beige, without preppy style immediately enhances a casual outfit that is a little too banal. The look “Spring Court or pimpled moccasins, faded jeans, white linen shirt and seersucker jacket” will be the best effect. Don't forget the linen or cotton pochette to complete the whole thing.

Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian. Today, I’m a wedding-planner and my husband directs a famous fashion magazine. I don’t have to tell you that I have a front seat at all of the fashion shows and I’ve developed a good general culture about fashion. Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.
