Summer Wardrobe Tips for UK Men*


The other day I was thinking about how tricky it is to put together the right summer wardrobe. When you live in the UK, you are never sure what the weather is going to do. As a result, you really need to be ready for pretty much everything. There is plenty of advice about how to put together a versatile and smart summer wardrobe for women, but not much advice on this subject for men. So,today, I have decided to feel the gap and come up with a few summer wardrobe tips that you can share with the men, and boys, in your life.

Capsule swim shorts 
For warmer days, a pair of capsule swim shorts, like the ones you can buy here, is perfect. The fact they are made from lightweight fabric means that they can easily be slipped on under a pair of jeans or joggers. When the morning has warmed up, the jeans or trousers can be removed to reveal the shorts underneath. Plus, of course, these shorts make great swimwearIn fact, if you are planning a holiday it is well worth getting your man, or boysto pack a couple of pairs of capsule swim shorts. Best of all, these versatile shorts do not take up much space in the case.

Chinos
This year, chinos are very much back in style. They look good on practically any man. Now that you can buy them in a range of colours and cuts it is easy to find a style that works for practically every age group. A pair of classic five-pocket chinos is a particularly good addition to a man´s summer wardrobe. They are smart enough to be worn with a jacket for a meal in a nice a restaurant, but can just as easily be worn with a t-shirt as an alternative to jeans. The other nice thing about chinos is that they are traditionally made from 100% cotton, which allows the skin to breathe naturally. Something wearers really appreciate on the days the sun pops out from behind the clouds.




Polo shirts
Polo shirts are also traditionally made from cotton. The fact that the fabric is loose weave makes them especially comfortable to wear when it is hot. This year, men´s fashion designers have had a bit of fun with this classic. There are some really great polo shirts available, so there is no need to just wear a boring plain one. 


Long sleeved shirts
Given the fact that the UK weather is so changeable it really is wise to have a couple of long-sleeved garments on hand. A good quality denim shirt can easily be slipped on over a t-shirt and worn as an alternative to a jacket, which is great on a day whenthe weather is variable. There are plenty of nice-looking and affordable men´s denim shirts available in UK shops, right now.

hat or baseball cap
It is also worth wearing a hat. On a hot day, it keeps the sun off of the head, and if, (or should I say when)it rains stops the wearer´s hair from getting wet.
