Without the ability to layer or add in more elaborate pieces, you have to rely on accessories and comfortable basics to get through hot sunny days. Here are some some simple pieces you can work into your summer style.

Adidas is back with another Raf collab but this might be one of the best color ways yet. While the Ozweego has faded a bit into the background with all of the new releases Adidas is putting out each week, this ozweego comes in a really clean toned down color palette. In addition the team at Raf has placed some typographic design details around the sneaker along with a subtle logo hit. Get these now at Revive Michigan.

While Raf always shows innovative concepts on the runway, when it comes to the buys that stores actually pick-up, his graphical takes on streetwear classics have been an accessible entry point into the designer label. For spring/summer 2016 Raf teamed up with photographer David Sims on not only a book (Isolated Heroes) but select pieces such as this crewneck sweatshirt.

Available at Mr.Porter.

Since Raf teamed up with Adidas, the footwear focus has shifted towards his collabs with the sneaker giant and away from his own namesake Italian produced sneakers. These classic Velcro sneakers are one of my favorites he’s done and they are now back in black leather. Made on a similar sole to Common Projects (that you are probably familiar with already). These are sure to go quick, so secure your pair as Raf only brings these back sporadically.

Available now for $750 at LN-CC.

Select items from Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2014 season have dropped over at Très Bien Shop. The selection includes an assortment of pop-art inspired graphic tees and new bright colorways of seasonal sneaker styles (The Velcro highs and Holographic lows). I enjoyed the presentation of SS14 on the Paris runway and I also liked what Raf did in tandem with Sterling Ruby for Fall/Winter 2014.

In colder weather, it’s hard to strike that balance between warmth, practicality and  unique style. A key piece for Fall and Winter dressing is a solid wool coat. The chesterfield coat fills this role particularly well. I’m partial to single breasted pieces in wool or camel but you can feel free to experiment with the different color options out there. While this coat is generally worn with more tailored  clothing, I really like to see it dressed down with either slim fitting trousers or skinny jeans and sneakers. You can experiment with both subtle minimalist sneakers and bulkier more attention grabbing models. For dressier occasions layer a button down underneath a knit and pair this it with a pair of oxfords or brogues.

Adidas has been cranking out the designer collaborations with the Yohji Yamamoto Superstar, the Rick Owens collaboration and the current season Raf Simons joints. For Spring/Summer 2014 more Adidas are on the way and they’re just as crazy as the FW13 ones. Some would say they’re ugly, but if you saw the SS14 Paris runway show , Raf found  a way to make some of them work. Personally I can’t cosign many of these design but I do enjoy the boot and the Air Max 1/90 inspired sneakers. There’s something childish and pop-art about them, I have a feeling these will be something alot of Raf fans will regret sleeping on.

One of the things that came up when I interviewed Tay for this style profile is how important comfort and attitude is to personal style. Tay owns some awesome designer pieces but what makes his style unique is how he confidently mixes pieces in an unconventional manner and makes them his own . Tay’s personal style was a result of his upbringing  in Hawaii/LA and also his time spent living in Tokyo.

You may have seen Tay on many a streetstyle blog before in the past and after meeting him I can see why; Tay isn’t afraid to experiment and try new things with his style.  I’m happy to share with you some of his favorite summer looks and also his unique perspectives on style as an individual who’s worked in a variety of roles in the New York fashion industry.
