Look Like Your Favorite Actor For the Summer

14 Stylish, Summer-Friendly Outfits to Wear to Work

You’re not about to catch us complaining about warmer weather. Summer, however, does pose its own complications, specifically when it comes to keeping your look sharp. When it’s hot, it’s hard to fathom the idea of putting together a multilayer outfit. Which, of course, means it’s hard to craft an outfit at all, given you only have a few pieces to work with.

Not to worry: Some of the most stylish globe-trotting celebrities have been tested with the same kind of challenge—and with the added bonus of paparazzi capturing those fits. That gives us documentation and inspiration for our own summer-friendly style. Here are 14 of the best outfits to wear to work this summer.

If you have to wear a suit all year long, it’s worth investing in one meant specifically for warm weather. Lighten up the fabric, color, and construction to stay comfortable all day.

Speaking of summer suits, you can make your year-round-ish ones work by lightening up the layers. A sleek white tee is the perfect summer layer.

For a more casual office, keep a denim jacket on hand. You can commute to work in a tee to stay cool and put on the jacket once you’re inside.

A striped polo is the perfect way to nail business casual. Not sure what kind of polo shirt feels modern? Start here.

Those polos look good layered with a suit, too. The short sleeves and lighter fabric mean less intense layering—but it still feels like a proper outfit if you take the jacket off.

While the winter might be about outdoor layers, the summer is all about indoor ones. Wear a short-sleeve button-down to the office and throw on a jacket once you get there.

Same goes for sweaters. Wear a T-shirt and pack a knit in your bag.

For suits-only offices, you still have some room for movement. Ditch the tie and go for a printed lightweight shirt instead of a more traditional dress shirt.

Business casual is often open to interpretation. But if your office leans into the casual of business casual, dark chinos and white sneakers are the way to go.

A base for any good outfit: black jeans and a white tee. Put on and remove your jacket at your leisure.

Suits work best in the summer when you still have an outfit once that jacket comes off. A contrast-collar polo is a good way to ensure that.

Think beyond your standard dress shirt for summer. A linen-blend, mandarin-collar shirt is much more aired-out than the norm.

Michael B. Jordan Takes Us Through His Day

For Research Purposes: Michael B. Jordan Walks Us Through A Day In His Life

Michael B. Jordan Takes Us On A Trip Through A Day In His Life

If you’ve ever wanted to know exactly what Michael B. Jordan does with his every waking moment, today is your lucky day. The Black Panther and Creed star sat down with Vanity Fair to break down just how he spends his 24 hours, even down to answering his overflowing inbox of text messages.

Whether you’re looking to better organize your own life or you want to know MBJ’s life as closely as possible so you can have something to talk about if you ever bump into him on the street, one thing is for certain–hearing everything this man accomplishes over the span of just one day will make most of us feel like we need to be more productive.

The actor starts his day by waking up at 5am, which already lets you know how productive the rest of his day is going to be. He also mentions that he generally sleeps around 4 hours a night.

Jordan gives himself some time in the morning to hit snooze for a couple minutes, then starts off the day by taking a shower and getting in some meditation.

After that, Michael is eating breakfast by 7am, and describes his ideal meal as one that consists of hashbrowns, breakfast tomatoes, home fries, turkey sausage, cheese grits, an english muffin, a bacon-egg-and-cheese croissant, and possibly some pancakes…yeah, this man is eating BREAKFAST breakfast.

It’s probably no surprise that after breakfast, Jordan heads to the gym…and then showers all over again.

Next, he’s dressed and out the door to talk a walk and getting something for lunch around 2pm. After that, he carves out some time to answer his almost 300 unread text messages.

He follows this up with another workout then filling his time with some reading, video game playing, or other “break” activities. The actor gets his dinner in at 6pm before rounding out the night relaxing and spending some time with himself.

Here all of that and more from Michael himself in his video with Vanity Fair below.

Gold Chains In The NBA

GOLD CHAINS IN THE NBA: FROM DR J TO CHOCOLATE THUNDER TO MJ

David Astramskas From BallsLife.com

NBA 

Michael Jordan was the first player to challenge the NBA and wear whatever shoes he wanted even if it meant a $5,000 per game fine. As a result of Jordan’s defiance and Nike’s marketing, the majority of players in the league now wear Nike and Jordan shoes.

In 1989, he was the first player to have his own custom longer shorts made. As a result, shorts became longer and the John Stockton shorts became extinct – although Chris Douglas-Roberts wants to resurrect them.

One fashion accessory Jordan wasn’t able to keep popular was the gold chain.

But unlike the black shoes and longer shorts, MJ wasn’t the first basketball player to make some noise with gold chains. Legends like Wilt and Dr J wore them in games but it was our friend Darryl “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins, who used to wear a few, with charms(!), that got the gold chain banned from games.

As cool as Dr J looked in the pic above, could you imagine how dangerous a gold chain around a neck could be in a situation like this?

As a result, Dr J’s successor couldn’t wear his gold chains in a regular season game so he used All-Star weekend and the dunk contest to make a fashion statement.

Jordan and Dr J both lost to Dominique Wilkins in the 1985 dunk contest but MJ and his gold chains would return and win 2 years later in the 87 Wilkin-less (Gerald doesn’t count) contest.

Jordan didn’t wear any jewelry when he “beat” Nique the following year in the infamous 88 Showdown in Chicago but Kenny Skywalker would bring the chain back a year after in his impressive and emotional dunk contest win in 1989.

After that, the gold chain movement died on the court and even off the court in hip-hop: Slick Rick went to jail, Rakim and Big Daddy Kane hung them up, Chuck D and other rappers traded in their gold chains for African medallions and then rappers eventually upgraded their “bling” to platinum and diamonds.

As for trendsetter Michael Jordan, he didn’t upgrade his jewelry to platinum but his ring collection got a lot bigger during these years.

Kanye West & Jaden Smith 2019

Kanye West’s Showtime TV Show With Jaden Smith Sounds Truly Bizarre

These days it seems like music is in the periphery for Kanye West. Between Yeezy, his Sunday Service, and his increased involvement on the 16th season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the rapper is spread thin. Somehow, though, he’s found the time to add to his project list with something truly out of left field: an anthology series on Showtime.

West is apparently developing a half-hour show called Omniverse that explores an alternative reality with a totally different Kanye West. Feel free to read that sentence a couple of times — but, sorry, it probably won’t make much more sense. Fittingly, West tapped family friend and time skeptic Jaden Smith to play a young version of himself in this alternative reality which “examines the many doors of perception.” What does that look like? When does it take place? And what exactly will be the series of events it follows? At least right now, there are no answers.

What we do know is that the pilot script has officially been commissioned and is being made right now and handled by writer Lee Sung Jin who comes from a comedy background, having contributed to Silicon Valley, Netflix’s Tuca & Bertie, and Amazon’s Undone. In a statement, Jin attempted to offer a few more details about the show’s premise, saying per The Hollywood Reporter, that the show will “present an alternate world through the eyes of a young man somewhere in the multiverse who happens to also be a Kanye West.” “Omniverse is not set in our world nor about our world’s Kanye West as we aim to add a new spin on alternate realities, consciousness, and push the limits of half hour narrative,” Jin said. Jin and West will also serve as executive producers, alongside his former manager Scooter Braun, Jaden Smith, James Schin, Scott Manson, and Miguel Melendez.
