It’s that time of the year when the clouds cover the entire sky and doesn’t let any sunshine through. As much as I would like to wear lighter shades the weather calls for more somber dressing even when off-duty. The essentials of an Ivy League-inspired look are here: a navy sport coat and navy suede penny loafers. But instead of light color trousers I chose to wear a pair of gray all-time khakis from Dockers to make me more attuned to the weather. The colors combined with the textures create a casual yet elegant look that’s perfect for a rainy weekend.
