Effortless classic elegance and style pretty much embodies Boy by Band of Outsiders SS10 RTW. It hits all the right notes in my venture into more laid back cuts and easy clothes. Don't get me wrong, I still consider Victoria Beckham and her stiff elegance a fashion icon. BOUT SS10 captures what I think casual elegance with a hint of subtle wealth should look like.

Will this work in an office? Sure, why not. I'd love to try the sleeves over jacket sleeves look; it's very relaxed yet still quite chic. Classic tapered pants with rolled up hems are all rage. Will pair with heels for an uptown look or with men's laced up for a masculine twist. Pull it all together with laid back confidence.

At first look, this may look just like any suit. But notice the shorter and usual cuffs and hem. These details make all the difference. To achieve the polished slim look, make sure the area around the chest and sleeves are well fitted.

I guess there'll be lots of whites for guys next SS, again. To update the look, shorten sleeves and roll up hems. Go for a sockless look, though I'm not a fan of loafers, even if they're Tod's.

Parkas are great for a light spring or summer day. Parkas are probably not the first fashion outerwear to come to mind, but they are an easy transitional outerwear that gives that effortless chic finish.
