How To Dress Your Dude


Props to your man for seeking wisdom on his fashion dilemma! Dressing for summer can be a bit tricky, especially for guys—putting together a dapper outfit while still staying cool definitely requires some deliberation! Fortunately, the fashion gods haven’t turned their backs on the season. On the contrary, they’ve given us plenty of great summer pieces that are climate-appropriate without sacrificing style. Here is my rundown on a few of them…

Starting from the bottom and working our way up, my first suggestion is to get your guy a fantastic pair of boat shoes—they will easily transition from a poolside party to a casual dinner. Next, update his look with twill pants as a fresh alternative to plain summer slacks. Beach plans? Then, funky swim trunks are a must to update your fellow’s swimwear repertoire! Of course, we can’t forget about accessories…I love the look of a sleek fedora and ultra-fly aviators on any man for added cool points. Do you see where I’m going with this? A little goes a long way! Browse the rest of my finds below, then sit back, relax and enjoy some mah-jor eye candy because your man is going to look OOC in his new summer threads! xoRZ
