August heat in Northern California is definitely a time for light summer clothing. Our Person on the Street, William, proves that less is more with style and comfort. With a fitted shirt, dark denim jeans and classic Converse shoes, this casual look is perfect for a day of hanging out around Downtown Plaza. Check out local shopping spots in Sacramento on how to recreate William’s look.

The casual shirt is a wardrobe staple for men’s summer style. You can wear it to backyard barbecues, pool parties and strolling around midtown while doing errands. This is a great way to easily look stylish because of the button and pocket details. Most shirts come in a variety of patterns, colors and light material to beat the summer heat. This slim fit casual shirt by Alfani was regularly $46, on sale now for $19.99 at Macy’s, in white, denim blue and black.

The right jeans can pull together a look very easily. A dark wash can help an ensemble look more sophisticated and chic. Make sure your jeans are a good length and fit and too much design on a pair of jeans can be distracting. LRG Grassroots C47 jeans like these from Macy’s are versatile because you can wear them with any number of shirts. These jeans were regularly $64 and are now discounted to $11.99!

Converse All Star shoes are great because they are classic and laid-back, perfect for hanging out at the park, grabbing lunch at a local eatery or heading off to a summer concert. These shoes can be paired with an outfit with the classic black and white Converse or full on black high tops like William is sporting and you can get them at Getta Clue in Downtown Plaza.
