Just as the season changes so does Fashion trends change and so is your wardrobe expected to change with it. It’s time to ditch the layers (If you haven’t already) and start wearing our lightweight and more casual beach clothes.
Now maybe your wardrobe isn’t filled to the point of regurgitation with designer pieces from the latest Fashion Week and you can’t afford a full wardrobe change. You don’t have to worry because the secret to every great wardrobe is having particular staples that can be used for the recreation of more than one looks through different seasons or even just one season and in this article I’ll be sharing a few basic wardrobe essentials for the uber cool Urban Fashionable man.
There’s something about summer that instantly reminds me of a beach and is there any more stylish way to strut to the beach than with a tote bag carrying all the beach essentials? Other than that, more often than not summers require more of dressed down fashion and a tote is a great way to give that ‘I’m classy but I’m casual vibe’.
2) Crop Tops
I feel this is more for the trendy and risk taking but fashionable man. And despite what you may think it’s very practical especially as summers are more or less known for the eponymous ‘Summer Heat‘, this staple is a one basic yet statement piece. And it doesn’t hurt that it also shows off your summer body.
3) Destroyed Denim
There is ripped jeans. And then there is destroyed jeans. At this point, almost every body has ripped jeans in one form or the other but if you want to stand out from your squad step out in destroyed jeans for real Urban cool vibes.
4) Print Shirts
Maybe it’s just me but there’s something about summer that speaks of sun, palm trees, wind and print shirts. Maybe it’s the relationship between beaches and summer. But a print shirt is perfect for summer especially when it isn’t slim fitted and made of light weather friendly material and It gives FUN vibes which is what summers are All about.
5) Short Shorts
Your summer uniform can not and will not be complete without shorts that start from above your knee. Practical? Check. Stylish? Check. Cool Kid? Check. For some reason people wear shorts that stop at or below their knees for the summer but in reality the actual summer look requires above the knees. SHORT shorts. Imagine a stylish man walking into a beach wearing his short shorts with his breezy print shirt? Now That’s a man’s man.
When it comes to summer, you are expected to wear practical yet stylish clothing usually which would show more of skin than not, so you better start working on that summer body.
