The summer season is officially here. Whether you’re planning to take a beach vacation or stay around town this summer, though, you should update to your wardrobe this reflect this seasonal change. Here are some must-have garments and accessories that every man should include in his summer wardrobe.
They’ve been trending for several years now, and there’s no sign of this trend slowing down anytime soon. On the contrary, boat shoes remain one of the most popular styles of footwear for men. They are clean, comfortable, stylish and perfect for the warm summer weather. It’s not a bad idea to include several different colors of boat shoes in your wardrobe, as this offers greater versatility regarding your choice of outfit.
When you want to achieve a slightly dressier appearance, grab a polo shirt. Polo shirts are ideal for summer wear and can be worn with either shorts or long pants. Whether it’s a solid color or striped, you can’t go wrong with a good polo. Just remember to keep the color crisp; otherwise, it will look unflattering when worn. We’ve talked about this before on our blog, but you can prevent your shirt collars from curling by hanging them up immediately after washing and drying — and flipping the collar upright.
In addition to boat shoes, you should also include a pair of white sneakers in your summer wardrobe. White sneakers are a classic choice of footwear that can be worn for a variety of different occasions. And being that they are white, they’ll keep your feet cooler and more comfortable than darker-colored shoes. Just remember to keep your white sneakers clean. If you’re planning to mow the lawn or perform other dirty work, wear an old pair of sneakers.
Some men turn their heads at the thought of wearing flip-flops, believing they are tacky. Granted, some flip-flops certainly fall under the category of being tacky, but others are the exact opposite. A pair of genuine brown-leather flip-flops, for instance, is a great choice of footwear for the summer.
Of course, the summer season is the perfect time to wear tailored shorts. Skip the long, baggy shorts and instead choose some that stop just shy of the knees. These shorter shorts offer a higher level of aesthetics and style than traditional, long shorts. Besides, you’ll appreciate the warmth of having the sun beam down on your legs.
