With the weather heating up and summer attire coming into fashion, it's time to take a look at your closet and see what you need to beat the heat. We've gathered up some necessities to make sure you have your summer wardrobe staples.
Short Sleeves: Either a camp shirt or sport shirt works for this season and will keep you cool in the summer sun. Bold prints are always in style, so feel free to have some fun with a palm leaf or a chunky vertical stripe. With a playful pattern, the basic and breezy Tori Richard Kipling Short-Sleeve Camp Shirt is our top pick.
Slim-line Shorts: Opt for a pair of shorts without the cargo pockets to give a more minimal look, and step outside of your comfort zone with a bold shirt on top. Might we suggest the Tommy Bahama 'The Good Life' shorts? With 100% linen and an elastic waistband, you'll be cool as a cucumber.
Linen Pants: For those that aren't really the shorts-wearing type, go for a good pair of linen pants. Many gentlemen are hesitant to wear linen because it does tend to wrinkle, but the cooling factor can't be beat. Our recommendation for the summer is a pair of Tommy Bahama 'Beach Linen' Stretch pants, breathable and stretchy while not sacrificing the look of sophistication.
Loafers: We're big fans of this shoe because of its ability to be dressed up or down, in winter or in summer. We're going for the Trask Sadler Penny Loafer in cognac this season, a classic to elevate any outfit.
Sandals: Because loafers won't make it to the beach. This pair by Peter Millar combines the casual air of your favorite flip-flops with the elegance of fine leather. These shoes can be worn with shorts (or pants if that's how you roll) and keep you nice and cool.
All of our recommended pieces are available in-store and online. Come check them out and pick up your own summer staple.
