Sometimes you’ve just got to simplify your life, and it all starts with the wallet. Take a close look at what you have in your giant continental wallet, and you will find useless receipts, business cards from people you can't even remember meeting, club cards for random stores, and way too many coins.

All right, I can barely get my husband to stand my culottes, let alone get him in a pair, but Alexander McQueen’s SS16 mulottes (Is this a term? It is now!) give me hope that the trend will be making its way into menswear soon. Guys must get tired of wearing the same old shorts all summer long, no? This is a fun alternative – and a much cooler one than a pair of bootcut jeans.
