The Right Fit For Anyone and Any Season: Fall to Summer Transition Looks for All Body Shapes

You know that feeling when you go shopping, find the cutest shirt or dress, in your size, try it on and it’s complete flop. If only I had smaller shoulders or a longer torso, right? It’s so frustrating how clothes are built for a mannequin, and not a variety of beautiful shapes and sizes. I hadn’t realized how men have similar issues with well-fitting clothes until Ty had tried on some dress shirts and ran into the same sizing struggles I’ve had.
I made it my mission to style Ty in an outfit that looked great and could be versatile enough for him to wear as we transition from summer to fall. This weather in NYC is so confusing these days, 80 degrees in the fall (I’m not complaining though). I wanted him to feel confident and comfortable and of course be able to show off his muscles just a little haha. I went with a classic long-sleeved dress shirt and light grey chinos from Bonobos. Their clothes come in up to four different fits with a variety of neck sizes and shirt sizes for the perfect fit. The stretch fabric meant that Ty could wear a slim-fitting shirt and still have the flexibility to hustle around town, and the summer weight chinos allowed him to enjoy the crisp look without the bulk of traditional pants.
I absolutely loved how good he looked in this outfit! He topped it off with a classic leather belt and sneakers for a casual brunch look, but I could have totally seen us going out for a date night by simply swapping out the kicks with a dress shoe. . I’m all about having versatility when I purchase clothes and it’s definitely an added bonus when I can wear them multiple times throughout the year. He could definitely still were this shirt in the spring or summer and just roll up sleeves.
Same for this super cute maxi dress from Rent The Runway! I orginally was eyeing this floral maxi dress in the summer but I felt like it was too warm. As the weather started cooling down it was the perfect transitional piece. It retails at $299 and I rented it for $45 faints! For the weather now I unbuttoned a few bottom buttons to have a split and rolled up the sleeves but if I wanted to wear it when the temperature starts to drop a bit I could easily leave the sleeves down, throw on a leather jacket, and booties when.
