How to Look Good When It’s So Damn Hot
Well, today’s high is 88. In April. These next few weeks, you’ll need gear that says you’re not at all
bothered while you a) walk-run from one centrally air-conditioned space to another, b) watch a basketball
team named after being hot, or c) set up camp on or near a body of water. Any body of water.
THE EVENT: NBA FINALS, MAYBE
The Item: Sweats Fit for Courtside
Wearing these sweatpants in Miami in the spring is like telling everyone you’re too much of a gentleman to
melt—the golden hue would look right at home at the Triple A while the Heat do their thing. When Beckham
asks where you got them, act casual.
THE EVENT: A DAY AT THE TRACK
The Item: A Tasteful Race Car Tie
If you find yourself catching some action at the racetrack soon, you might channel a little Jean Girard.
Just a little. This navy silk tie with a subtle vintage race car print will do nicely. Now all you need is
to pair it with something... like a sidecar.
THE EVENT: POOLSIDE. ANYWHERE.
The Item: Jungle-Print Swim Shorts
You know what they say: April showers bring champagne at the Standard. Or maybe it’s brunch in Cecconi’s
garden. Anyway, your swim shorts should probably be from the French label Ami, and they should probably be
covered with an abundance of blooming flora straight out of TheJungle Book. Via Paris.
THE EVENT: HITTING THE CASINO
The Item: Slip-Ons That Stand Out
So you’re stepping toward the poker tables at Casino Miami Jai-Alai. You want to be comfortable, but you
also want to be... well, let’s just say if Hef were a shoe, that would be the kind of shoe you would want
to wear to this thing.
THE EVENT: A THREE-HOUR TOUR
The Item: An Elegantly Rugged Watch
Time flies when you’re lobstering off a yacht in Key Largo. So make sure you’re wearing one of these
durable Japanese timepieces. That way you’ll know when to head back to shore for dockside cocktails and
calamari. Calamari waits for no one.
