The summer of 2019 will forever be dubbed a ‘‘Hot girl Summer’’. If you don’t get that reference, you might be living under a rock. The song, “Hot Girl Summer” by Megan Thee Stallion Ft. Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign. BLEW UP the charts. When asked about its meaning, the H-Town hottie herself said, “It’s just basically about women — and men — just being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time”.
As we get to the end of Hot Girl Summer, consider turning your wardrobe up a notch. After all, it’s pre-season tryouts for cuffing season. If you are trying not to spend the winter alone, then you might want to go out and add these pieces to your closet!
The Ultimate Summer Swaggy Piece
You know that feeling while you are shopping when see an article of clothing that you can just picture yourself feeling confident AF and flirty in? It might a jumpsuit or male romper, or maybe it’s a coordinated floral-print shirt and short set. Whatever it may be, NOW is the time to pull the trigger on that piece you’ve been contemplating all summer. Here’s what we’ve been contemplating:
Polo Ralph Lauren Sailboat Print Hooded Jacket
Tell me a better way to make friends with someone who owns a boat. #summergoals

Cool White Sneakers
Let’s face it, kinda hard for summer to go by without buying a pair of white sneakers; they are a serious staple in any fashion-forward person’s clothing arsenal. Those same white sneakers you wore walking around at this summer’s festivals are now useless, and now is the perfect time to coup another pair! Not only will these make you look like you have your shit together after another reckless summer, but they’ll add some lightness to your incoming fall wardrobe. Until Labor Day, that is 😉
Cole Haan Men’s Grand Crosscourt Sneaker
Don’t fall prey to Christian Girl Autumn… See the light.
You can get them here.
Transitional Utility Jacket
Ahh… it’s that magical time in Chicago where you never know what the weather is going to be. You might leave your house in the morning and its 50 degrees, but when you walk out for lunch, BAM! Its hotter than hell. As summer comes to a close, make sure you have a good lightweight utility jacket that you can throw on no matter what the weather is for that perfect “I’m prepared” look. Remember, you have to show off those datable qualities during the preseason.
An Unexpectedly Cool Knit Tie
During the summer, all work and no play leads to unemployment. Convince your bosses that you are still the button-up guy they hired last fall and update your professional wardrobe. Keep in mind that even though summer is coming to an end, you don’t have to stop having fun. A knit tie is a great way to show the other YPs at the office that you’re the same White Claw drinking you, even if you got the promotion.
A F*@king Fanny Pack
This has to be the HOTTEST trend in menswear. While we aren’t normally the “jump on the bandwagon” type of people, we had to get on this one. Do you want to be the cool dad at soccer practice? Coup a fanny pack. However, don’t put this one around your waist… throw it over your shoulder and get ready to look really good!
DAMIER COBALT RACE DISCOVERY BUMBAG
If you’re going to rock a fanny pack, it might as well be the best.
Get it here.
At the end of the day, even if you add one of these items to your wardrobe you’ll be killin’ the scene. Summer’s not over yet, get out there and make the most of it while looking your best!
