Summer Details

Sometimes it's the little details that really bring a look to life.  Summer is one of those seasons when it gets harder to create strong outfits as you start to shed layers.  For the stylish man, the perfect accessories can be the key to unlock summer style.

If you're looking for a new way to keep your keys together, check out this mini leather photo album keychain by Adees Co. The genuine leather accessories brand has created a keychain that fits comfortably in your pocket, holds on to your mementos in a fashionable way, and packs all the style of a high-end leather bag into a bite size package.

A bold sock design can often be the difference between a dull work suit and an amazing dapper look.  Men's sock brand Sammy Icon is staking claim in the sock world with colorful prints and new takes on classic patterns.  Their yellow loafer socks are a fresh way to approach the faux-sockless look.  And their camo and fruit print socks add some personality around the ankles that take your outfits to the next level.

PF Flyers' high top sneakers are a hot alternative to the standard Converse shoes.  While I love my Chucks, these sneakers are fresh, clean, and perfectly designed to add that casual streetwear element to any look.  

Sometimes your summer wardrobe is all about showing off the body you worked on all winter or broadcasting your penchant for styling.  But other times, it's the little things that require the most effort and create the most fun.
