We’ve all got at least one music t-shirt we love. It may be a faded vintage concert tee you picked up at a thrift store or a black and white shirt you snagged at the “On The Run” tour this summer.

One of my favorites happens to be a Steve Miller Band shirt I purchased a few years ago. The simple, antique white shirt shows the band’s Pegasus logo It shows the groups logo. And paired with distressed denim, brown wingtips and a baseball cap, the tee brings the ideal rock ‘n’ roll touch to the look.

As much as we all hate to admit it, summer is quickly coming to a close. But as I prepare to transition into a new season, I’m getting the final wears out of of my warm-weather favorites.

Take my camo shorts for example — shorts I actually snagged for next to nothing during a sale a few years ago. Camo is quite the chameleon print, pairing well with both casual outfits or more dressed up looks. I mixed it with trainers and another obsession of mine, my Nirvana T-shirt, for a gracefully moody farewell to summer.

Since I was a little kid, I’ve always loved wearing baseball caps. Though I’ve moved on from flipping the brims up for the ultimate Fresh Prince of Bel-Air factor, caps remain one of my all-season staples.

My Boston Red Sox hat has grown to be my summer go-to. Its navy color allows it to easily compliment a varied amount of looks. Plus, its red “B,” trimmed with gold thread, adds just the right touch of sophistication to the typically casual accessory. I’m a sucker for a dope hat, and this one is most definitely a standout.
