The Ultimate Stylish Gentleman Summer Classics
Summer can be tricky when it comes to stay dapper. Don't get me wrong, I love the summer season as much as the next guy. But I have to admit, it's far more difficult to stay looking neat during the summer season. Putting together summer outfits can be tricky and you might end up looking like one of the cast members of Miami Vice or worse, you might end up looking like Charlie Sheen.
And unless you want to go around looking like a sad cliché of first-time tourist in Hawaii you should take a look at these summer classics that will ensure you will be fresh and stylish during the whole season.
Although you can't go wrong with a plain white tee, it may be a rather bland look for the summer. Seize the sunny season and the beach vibes choosing red-white or blue-white striped shirts. The nautical look it's perfect for the summer and it's still sober enough to dress it up or down to your liking.
Ditch the flip-flops, that's not the only summer footwear you can wear. White sneakers are summer essentials but espadrilles are a good substitute or at least better than flip-flops. They're simple and cheap, and if you invest in a quality pair, they can be appropriate enough for almost any occasion. They could even be a good fit for work as long as they're muted, pared back and properly made.
Cotton is great. We all love a good cotton item but some cotton pieces are heavy and as you probably know, heavy and synthetic fabrics are not good for warmer months. But linen is a great option to stay cool. Mix cotton and linen for breezy summer dressing. Shirts are the obvious place to start, and linen trousers can be great if they are properly tailored, you don't want to look like an on-yacht Donald Trump, do you? So, aim for an unlined linen jacket that would make for a statement of sprezzatura at all those weddings.
Printed Camp Collars.
If loud shirts have a place in our lives is during summer. They've even been legitimized by the big brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Dries Van Noten. Of course, this doesn't mean you will just put on the first orange hibiscus shirt you come across with. Fit and quality are everything, which means you should choose a loose fit. Loose not baggy, you must be able to wear it on it's own or under a jacket, without looking like you have to force all the fabric inside of it. But it should also have enough room to wear a white tee underneath. As for the quality quality, choose airy like soft cotton or silk. Make sure the print appears on both sides of the fabric, that's another sign of quality. Of course, whatever you do, don't wear them at the office, there's nothing business-y about a printed shirt, let alone a short sleeved one
If you insist that is far too hot, even for espadrilles; you should consider sandals. I am NOT talking about flip-flops. There's nothing timeless, chic or cool about them. They' might be good for doing chores around your house or walking back to your car after surfing, nothing else. But a good pair of sandals can be a great fit for going around town, and even work during the warmer season. Opt for dark, leather, gladiator inspired items, they can upgrade your vacation look. Although if you pair them with the right suit, you could even sport them at the office. And by the right suit, I mean a summer suit. Choose something shorter-than-normal leg in a soft fabric.
