When we say smart-casual, we think more well-fitted, sharp pieces that are less casual but borderline formal — exactly like what Saif is wearing.
Pick a well-fitted Cuban collar shirt in dark blue, team it with a pair of charcoal gray trousers, and add a pair of black oxford shoes to whip out a perfect smart-casual look. Don’t forget to tuck the shirt into your pants.
With a statement collar, short sleeves and a flattering fit, Cuban collar shirts are a great way to amp up your summer look. Build your look around the ones in bold prints or stick to a solid color, depending on your mood.
Experiment with accessories like a pendant or chain since a Cuban collar is designed to have a plunging neckline. Finish up with a slick pair of chinos or shorts and sunglasses to rock a quintessential Cuban collar look.
