Joggers are casual wear, so they pair well with stylish sneakers. But, since joggers are today's equivalent of jeans, they easily balance a colorful blazer, and the trendy floral prints on this shirt and five panel hat.

Summer heat means shorts (with plaid lining — roll 'em up), comfy tanks, dark sunglasses and slip on sneaks. Then throw on the blazer and wear it as a simple jacket — suddenly you're on another level.
