Shop: Jim McMichael on summer styles
Made in the shade
Jim McMichael, senior marketing manager for the Fashion Show Mall, knows all and sees all when it comes to the trends that make it into stores. Here’s the best of his summer style advice.
What are some summer essentials that men and women need to survive the summer? “Sunglasses continue to take center stage this season. We are seeing everything from Ray Bans to Aviators to Jackie O styles. Barneys New York, Tory Burch, Oakley and Michael Kors are some of the standouts at our three centers (Fashion Show, The Shoppes at The Palazzo and The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian) that offer a diverse variety at any price point.”
What are your favorite summer trends for men and women? “For women, coral is huge this season. We’re seeing it on everything — home decor, fashion, accessories and even cosmetic lines are focusing on this bright hue. For men, deep V-neck sweaters. In breathable fabrics like silk, cotton knits and linen, they’re lightweight and provide a trendy look for dressing up or down.”
How can guys dress to look good and stay cool in the summer heat? “It’s all about the footwear. I’m very into the ‘no shows’ or loafer socks. These clever foot covers protect shoes from sweat, and make going sockless more comfortable. For the guy who likes fashion a little edgy, they look great with shorts, khaki pants and dress slacks. Another way to look stylish this season is to wear a tie. Skinny ties in traditional solid colors and mini prints are the perfect way to add a splash of summery style to your business ensemble.”
