Men’s Fashion Advice: Early hot trends for the summer

Summer time is around the corner and once again a change of clothing style to fit the weather and general mood associated with the period is necessary. The warmth of the season provides people with a lot of flexibility in selecting outfits and most people take advantage of this warmth to dress with the least amount of clothing items possible. To help the fashion conscious or the average man dress fashionably during summer, a tip on the hottest clothing items and what accessories they should be paired with will be provided.


When going for footwear, sandals, open- toe shoes and flip flops should be the preferred choice. These footwear provide you with the necessary comfort and air circulation needed, they are one in varying orders depending on the occasion. For business purposes, scandals and open shoes are the preferred footwear because they provide you with a formal look while providing your feet with good air circulation. Informal activities such as block parties require the use of scandals while a visit to the beach should be done in your flip flops to avoid accumulating sand on your feet.

Pants and Jeans

The popularity of jeans has made it the attire for all seasons, summer jeans should be chosen with care and the details you should focus on are the cut, colour, design and fit of the jeans on your body. The cuts adequate for the warmth of the season are usually three-quarter cut which are jeans that stop at your knees or jean shorts. Making a choice from the two mentioned above depends on your height and how well built your legs are. Light traditional full length jeans can also be one during summer but one should avoid dark colours. The versatility of items that you can be worn with your jeans makes it a valuable clothing item, scandals, shoes and flip flops look perfect when combined with a good pair of jeans. The cut of a jeans also speaks volumes so always pick the right cut for the look you want to project to others, if you want a mature look a slim fit straight-legged jeans would be perfect for you while for a teenage look that signifies street credibility a baggy jeans should be your choice.

Men’s Fashion Spotlight: Ed Hardy Swimwear

I have always thought of the designs of Ed Hardy when it came to t-shirts, watches, and leather jackets, but with this year’s move towards color and graphic prints for Spring and Summer, his unique designs are a perfect option for men’s swimwear. The intricately vibrant details that Christian Audigier puts in his tattoos are well translated into his line of swim trunks.

The swimwear is designed with a fly front closure, a rear pocket with a Velcro closure, and fabricated out of 100% polyester with no inner lining that will be smooth against the skin and dry quickly. These particular swim trunks are a longer length, board-short style, but Ed Hardy also makes a line of slimmer fitting spandex swimwear with the same great graphic designs. It’s just a matter of taste.

Men’s Fashion Advice: Hats for the summer

Alright, so you have your jeans, your shirt, and maybe your socks and shoes. Everything you need, right? Maybe if you only strive to be the background passerby in the next photo shoot coming to a street corner near you. Now, if you want to turn your white canvas self into a statement, you’re going to need to add some finishing touches to put the “you” in “unique.” Two undeniable trend setters? The hat, and the watch.

From a practicality standpoint, both items serve you a great deal – shading your eyes, containing a wild hair day, and keeping time (or letting time get away, whichever you can manage). But each piece adds a bit of mystery and indicates there’s more to the man than what’s seen at first glance. Besides hiding your eyes from sun, hats like fedoras add mystery with a downward tilt or a relaxed tone when in an upward direction like Frank Sinatra. When your face is the focal point of your personality, make sure it receives the attention it deserves by accentuating it with a hat. No need to be bright, but a speck of color, such as a pin or feather, can do wonders in turning glances from casual to desirable.
