Summer Essentials: How To Rock White Bucks 2 Ways

White Bucks

(They’re Not Just For Sipping Sweet Tea in Seersucker Suits Anymore )

White bucksare synonymous with southern garden parties, beach weddings and country club bros with names like Taddington the III. This summer, treat those preppy white kicks like a pair of low-top sneakers — i.e, wear them with everything. This post shows you two ways to wear your new favorite summer footwear outside of the sweet tea drinking box.

Tricking your mind into thinking that you’re on vacay, while you’re in the middle of the workweek is on a Jedi level. When you’re rocking a well-tailored aloha print shirt, it’s easy to feel extra breezy. Most guys would throw on a pair of minimal sneakers like the ever popular Common Projects Achilles, however; adding a white buck dresses this look up in an — “I’m not the cabana boy type of way”.

Three Reasons This Look Works

  • The brick-red soles of the shoes complement the white cargo pants and pull out the red tones in the shirt
  • Showing a little ankle, you make the casual vibe of the overall look 
  • After all, it’s still a structured lace-up shoe. Put it on with a navy cotton suit and a button-down shirt and crush that summer meeting before happy hour

You’ve wanted to rock the blazer and jeans look, but, you’ve never pulled the trigger because it’s too “I’m an entrepreneur”. Yes, you’ll look like you’ve got your ear to the ground of the next-big-thing, but, here are three style swerves to make this look all your own.

Three Reasons This Look Works

  • Opt for a pair of light-wash and lightly distress jeans. They show some character and complement white bucks perfectly
  • Make a style staple with a double-breasted blazer and a stripe t-shirt combo. It’s the mix of structure and casual that makes the look work
  • The white bucks stay in line with the casual vibes of this look, but, are structured enough to refine this overall look
