Summer Trends to Trash...Men's Edition [Fashion]

Print

 

We have all been trying to manipulate our wardrobe around the season’s temperatures and activities...that is no excuse to always be lax in the way we present ourselves (regardless of your summer’s hobbies or style choices). I have noticed that a lot of us males have followed the trend of using active wear as everyday apparel...just as I have trashed the ladies who think running a days errands requires yoga pants now it's your turn! Here are some ways to amp up your game this season while staying cool and comfortable....

 

 

ALL-TERRAIN SHOES

While there is nothing wrong with the original all-terrain Teva sandal, unless you are actually wading through a creek or climbing a rocky hill, here is a much more chic option while doing your urban chores. Don't be fooled, while it looks like a loafer, it is a rubber and mesh all-terrain shoe that will get you where you need to go while looking casual chic.

 

BOARD SHORTS

We're not asking you to get skimpy, we're just saying you shouldn't be wearing a swimsuit that looks like it is 3 sizes too big for you. Not only do they look silly, but they are not flattering at all.  Get full coverage with a flattering cut with a slightly shorter suit that is cut closer to your body.

 

BOXERS AND BRIEFS

In all honesty, we don't understand how you can wear regular boxers under your jeans without them looking like you're carrying around a load of shit in your pants. Go for a sleeker look with boxer briefs.

 

DRIVERS AND TENNIS SHOES

As most ladies know, shoes can be icing on the cake. Guys, take note. Don't ruin your polo and khakis with tennis shoes.  Drivers finish the look without being too high maintenance (if anything, they are lower maintenance because you don't have to tie them. See, we saved you time).
