Style Guide: By the Shore

Presented by

With the forthcoming shift in seasons, the temperature rise is beyond expected. As a result, there’s nothing more appropriate than a trip to the shore. Oceanside attire consists of many different elements, often depending on what you find yourself doing out there. At times, though, sitting on the shore is as fun as it gets, and looking good at the same time never hurts. So, seeing as it’s nearly time to go out, toss your blanket over the sand, and bask in the sun, we’ve got a perfect array of attire to keep you covered for a leisure-filled day on the coast.

And while you can’t go wrong with any color of these leather-coated classics, a crisp all-white pair is perfect to blend with your beach day outfit.
