With the arrival of Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer, men get the green-light to go with white pants, light-weight fabrics and splashy, hot-season colors … but all-black-everything doesn’t have to end with the holiday’s arrival. So, to help you pull off black, even as the temperature rises, we’ve put together a SlamXStyle outfit to summarize your monochrome game.

Remember, the key to all summer dress (regardless of color) is to wear transitional clothes: stuff that will keep you ready for wherever your adventures take you without having to change. Whether it’s the beach, the pool, the yacht club, the skatepark or the rooftop bar, we’ve got you covered.
