The official start of summer is fast approaching! This means it is time to begin putting together your seasonal wardrobe with the latest trends and style statements. To help inform your efforts, JZandF did some research to determine the top summer style tips for the professional man – the guy with places to go, people to see and a good look for all occasions.
Get a Seersucker Suit
Labeled ‘Summer’s Essential Suit’ by GQ, seersucker is an excellent material for warmer weather, so that you can keep cool and look fantastic. Although it’s been a classic spring and summer material for years, designers are now creating a variety of accent colors to branch away from the traditional blue-and-white with many more options.
Anyone can sport a tailored suit well, but it’s the accessories a man wears that really show off his personality and fashionable style. Pay attention to the details as you dress – your pocket square, tie clip, shoes, watch, etc. The Chronograph Big Date watch from Franc Vila is one of our favorites available from JZandF.com. It’s great for a professional statement and is also a definitive luxury casual and sport piece. And, at 47 mm, it’s the perfect size (remember, bigger isn’t always better with watches).
Wear the Right Shorts
Warmer weather means ‘time to break out the shorts’. However, for the professional man with style, college-age cargo shorts just won’t do. Don’t worry; there are plenty of classic and stylish options in shorts for summer lounging, from tailored to cropped. Check out this helpful shorts style guide for summer 2014.
Grooming for the Season
Throughout the summer, the weather has a strong impact on your skin. SPF should be a daily (or maybe, twice daily) application, and moisturizing will be critical to avoid dry skin from overexposure in the sun. Beyond just your SPF, stock up on other important men’s grooming products, like the ones listed on FashionBeans.com.
Go Sockless the Right Way
When you’re wearing sandals, of course the socks should go. But how do you go sockless with other footwear… the correct way? AskMen.com has the tips on how to pull off the sockless look, which shoes to rock it with, and how to update your look for the season.
