On a breezy summer night, lightweight denim jeans are a little dressier than the standard version but less formal than trousers. And there’s no way to go wrong with a dark V-neck tee. Instead of the typical untucked dress shirt, try a slimmer, shorter washed shirt in a gingham or madras plaid, worn unbuttoned. A golf jacket is one of those items you’ll get mileage from both day and night. And even if you favor a Rolex, throw on a cord bracelet, too. It takes a few years off.
