I usually share a style inspiration post each season with images that can help inspire personal styling to go with the changes in weather. This time around this summer style inspiration board has been submitted by a loyal Third Looks reader Franco Zulueta. He’s described his selection of imagery below.
With summer in full swing, comfort and simplicity are the name of the game this time of year. May this selection of images help inspire you in by the hot days ahead.

As has become customary each season for this site, I’ve put together some inspiration images for the transition to colder weather (at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere).
In the past two years I have transitioned from only buying mostly neutrals to wearing many more colors on a daily basis. Color and textures are such essential aspects of dressing and I’ve come to appreciate well-paired colors in day to day life. Taking a color theory class in my studies really helped me improve my understanding of color and the relationships between different color groups. I highly recommend you take a color theory class if you get the chance as it has many unforeseen applications past just painting or art.
This is the first in a series Color Theory that is based around the study of color in clothing and beyond. I’ll be sharing imagery and color palettes I find visually inspiring. I usually don’t find Hermès ready-to-wear collections particularly exciting but these backstage photos by Schohaja really stood out to me. The color palette is simultaneously nostalgic and modern, and the film grain compliments the purples, mustards, and burnt oranges here.
Comment or share this feature if you like the concept and I will be sure to bring you more of these posts.

TK featured in J.Crew’s “Hello World” campaign
TK may not be a household name in America but he has silently created an empire in Hong Kong. Founder of the influential Milk magazine , TK has been a key style influencer in the Hong Kong scene and beyond. He is best known for his work with the brand and multimedia establishment Silly Thing. Through his work with Silly Thing, TK has collaborated with industry heavyweights including projects with A Bathing Ape, Undercover, Head Porter, and Bounty Hunter as well as countless other brands , artists, retail outlets and musicians.
What I admire about TK’s style it that he has a stylists eye but with a restraint and respect for the overall aesthetic. He’s been spotted in many different brands and looks but he always brings such a sense of cohesion with each individual outfit. Laying is always a challenging when dressing and TK always makes it look so easy. He knows to add enough to make a look stand out without adding too much to the point where it looks contumely. Ultimately TK has a great eye for design and it’s reflected in his own personal clothes. It’s quite uncommon to find someone who’s got comparably great taste in their work AND their own personal aesthetic and for that reason TK is one of my top style inspirations.
