Hanging Out Look: Printed shorts play up the shirt's youthful feel — stick to black and white to avoid looking too childish.

Tips: A belt makes all the difference in pulling two casual pieces together.

Choose leather bracelets and cuffs that won't jangle when you're attacking your to-do list.

Moschino shorts, vintage Hermès belt & all jewelry, Laceppe's own.
