Top 10 Men’s Summer Essentials – Bean Boozled Edition with Ashley Weston, Celebrity Menswear Stylist

Ashley Weston is a celebrity menswear stylist who has styled covers for GQ, Esquire, and Vanity Fair and has dressed such clients like Jon Hamm, Harrison Ford, Chris Pratt, and Samuel L. Jackson. I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley a couple years ago at StyleCon (another reason you should go) and we've been friends ever since.

She invited me to join her so we could each discuss our 10 summer essentials – but with a twist. If she didn't have an item on her list that I did, we had to play Bean Boozled, a jelly bean game where you either get a delicious flavor or a disgusting one like booger, stinky cheese, or dog food.

We had such a great time! Be sure to follow her on YouTube and Instagram, and give Primer a follow too.

Here are some affordable options based on my selections, but you'll definitely want to watch the video for more insight!
