During my recent trip to St. Croix, where I experienced all of its Caribbean wonders from land to sea, I stopped in the town of Christiansted to show how you can style a printed geometric patterned T-shirt while down in the U.S. Virgin Islands or during your summer months back home. In Christiansted you’ll find 18th-century Danish-style pastel stone buildings and lush gardens and greens which were a perfect background for the tee I had in mind to show.
This bold patterned tee from Lactose L!VE, which unfortunately is not available at the moment, shows how you can contrast the tropical greens around. I styled it up with accessories such as a toggle bracelet from Coach’s new collaboration, Coach + Philip Crangi, a pair of gold framed aviators and leather driving shoes, but kept the look summer casual with sun-washed khakis.
The latest in Coach’s designer collaborations is with New York-based jewelry designer Philip Crangi for a limited edition collection of braid bracelets, buckle belts, key rings and more men’s leather accessories with brass elements. Each of the unique pieces’ brass features have been left in their raw natural state overtime, which has resulted in aged, beautiful colors that pop over the quality leather. The Coach + Philip Crangi collection is available online now and in select stores in May, and prices range from $128-$168.
