Are you ready for summer?

Summer is upon us! Dressing sharp can be difficult this season. As the summer heat increases, the layers of clothing decreases. So, how can we stand out in the crowd with less? Answer? Pay attention to the details. Summertime accessories are a little different. If implemented properly, it can add a touch of your personality to the overall outfit and help you stand out from the crowd.

This post is going to cover summer essentials for men.

1.) Sunglasses


With the sun shining brightly, sunglasses are a necessity. Perhaps, sunglasses the most functional accessory one can have. Aside from being stylish, sunglasses can protect the eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. According to The American Cancer Society, there is an estimate 2,810 of new eye related cancer in the United States for the year 2016 alone.
I cannot stress it enough. Please wear your sunglasses!

2.) Summer Shoes


Lightweight footwear is another must have accessories. One of the most popular would be the boat shoes. Boat shoes have been around for a while. Chances are, they will continue to be in style for the foreseeable future. Investing in a high-quality pair of boat shoes will provide a better value in the long run.Your feet will thank you later. Regardless of the brand of boat shoe, you decide to choose, make sure that it’s durable and full of style. It’s summer so you’re going to display some leg when wearing shorts. Ensure that the shoe merits taking a look at.

3.) Shorts


Wear the right cut and avoid shorts with too many pockets. It should fall perfectly on the waist. Shorts should be neither too long nor too short. The hem of an appropriately cut shorts should fall just above the knee when you’re standing up straight, and should be no more than two inches higher when you’re seated.

Better fit than loose. The thing with shorts is that they only add bulk to the top part of the hips and the top thighs. To avoid the chicken leg look, short should not be too baggy or bulky on the side. Avoid shorts with pleats. The extra fabric will only make you baggy. Simple design shorts are better when it comes to versatility.

4.) Shirt


When it comes to t-shirt, polo, and casual shirt, the selection is endless. Just bear in mind that casual tops are supposed to fit a little looser in comparison to dress shirt. Allow an extra inch around the chest and waist. When choosing the fabric, make sure to select fabric that is light and breathable. Having “sweat spots” is a look we do not want to have.

6.) Summer Trunks


Swimsuits are not created equal.
Swimming trunks are the most common swimwear for men. It looks great for any age group and body type. In general, your swimming trunks should come down any lower than your kneecap. In terms of fit, the trunks shouldn’t be big and baggy regardless of the length.

7.) Sunscreen


Sunscreen is a necessity this time around. With the sun out longer in the day, our exposure to UV light is a lot higher. Skin cancer should not be taken lightly. According to Skin Cancer Foundation, about 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.If your spending excessive time outdoors, a sunscreen with SPF 50 with an application every two hours should be sufficient.
