In the beginning of the season, layer a hoody over his tee for added style and warmth. Once the weather gets warmer, his favorite hoody can serve as an light jacket.

Boys love shorts and most of them can't wait for spring just so they can cast away their long pants and bust out their favorite shorts. This style calls for longer shorts with a wider leg. Again, comfort and looking casual are the keys to achieving this look. On the beach, only board shorts will do, but for school choose long and roomy cargo type shorts that come to or go past his knee. Or get funky with a cool pair of retro patterned shorts in neutral colors such as khaki, brown, black or grey.
