Are you a man looking for some sweet summer style? Look no further than our quick guide of summer essentials that will have you primed and ready for everything from that casual cookout to the pool party of the season.
Let’s get started:
The Fitted Polo
The summer season isn’t complete without a solid or colorfully patterned polo shirt. But you’ll need to make sure your polo shirt isn’t baggy or loose.
The fitted polo is the summer style must-have that helps to show off your muscles and at the end of the day, simply looks more tailored. You’re not looking for the tightest shirt out there. You’re looking for the fitted polo with a slim, tailored body that makes it look like the shirt fits you perfectly.
The Fitted Short
The fitted, flat-front short is another summer essential for men. These shorts should come in a range of 7 to 9 inches for the in-seam, and they should be tailored through your thighs and upper leg much like the body of the fitted polo shirt. Try on a few pairs to find out which ones feel most comfortable to you.
Once you find a pair that fits, buy them in multiple solid colors — from peach or salmon to khaki and navy. These will be your go-to staple for all summer has to offer.
The Boat Shoe
With their origins dating back to sailors who didn’t want to slip on the boat deck, boat shoes today are the perfect summer shoe that give you style and comfort. They look great with a pair of shorts or Chinos — and you can dress your style up or down with them depending on what you’re wearing. If you’re going to buy one pair of shoes for the summer season, let the boat shoe be yours. After you walk around in them for a few weeks, they’ll begin to mold to your feet and give you a soft, comfortable step everywhere you go this summer!
