Summer is here and that means beach parties and pool parties. But what do you wear for these fun occasions? How can you stay stylish when you’re stripping off in the heat? We have some tips to help you stay on trend and looking cool…
Dressing for a beach party can be a struggle, especially for men, as there are limited resources to turn to when it comes to men’s fashion advice for swimwear and beach apparel. So how can you stay looking cool in the summer heat?
What you wear will be important, not only in keeping you comfortable in the heat but also for keeping you looking fresh and sophisticated. A linen shirt can be a fantastic item for putting on to cover up as you head to and from the beach or pool. You should opt for one that will also be appropriate for a poolside bar or beach bar. Hawaiian shirts are all the rage this year and nothing says summer style like a fresh Hawaiian shirt paired with a pair of chino shorts.
Shorts are a must when it comes to beach or pool attire. They’ll not only keep you cool but they’re ideal for casual beach parties. Bright, patterned swim shorts can let you show off your sense of fun for the party vibe and summer is the perfect time to do this. To keep it sleek, stick to fresh summer colors and nautical stripes. Pastel colors and sandy earthy tones are on trend this summer and will work well in swim shorts. A white linen shirt or cotton T-shirt will keep you casual and fresh. The lighter the colors, the cooler you’ll feel in the hot summer sun. Don’t forget the sunglasses!
What you wear on your feet will also be important to both your style and your comfort. You’ll want your feet to stay cool so opt for a sandal or a canvas shoe.
A slip on can be a great alternative to a sandal, especially in natural fabrics, as they can help to keep your feet cool if you’re in the sun all day. The Calabasas elevator shoes could be a fantastic choice for your summer beach party, as they feature a natural raffia upper in a gorgeous sand tone and blue suede detailing at the back. Not only will they keep you fresh and on trend but they will also increase your height by 2.6 inches, meaning you can stay tall even when you’re heading to the pool or the beach.
For a casual, sleek look the Vieste elevator sandals can give you that touch of glamor on the beach and can increase your height even as you’re on the sand. These handcrafted Italian leather sandals are the ideal color to go with almost any beach style.
