Hot-weather clothing priorities: Deliberate Style

The trouble with most summer outfits is that they are products of necessity, not style. You throw on shorts and a T-shirt so that you don't overheat, not because they look good.
Looking stylish in the summer is as much about small, deliberate gestures as it is anything else. Khakis and a white shirt are comfortable, but you might look like a low-level IT staffer.
When you make a summer outfit you need to be thinking about the colors, patterns, textures, and accessories all together. The difference between stylish and just functional could be as small as a different belt or the right pocket square.
But if you don't take the time to make that small difference you just look like one more overheated office guy.
