Men: Your holiday wardrobe sortedBy BANK
Hot holiday looks!
If you're planning a holiday before heading back to the bright lights of higher education, you'll already be dreaming up all the best ways to party hard, but what about looking your best while you're away? Never mind worrying about the potentially ugly effects of those late nights, lack of proper food and general fun gluttony on your post-holiday self: to enjoy the moment while you're away, you need to dress well.
So let's do it, let's sort your holiday wardrobe:
One sure-fire way to guarantee you're not left trailing in the style stakes is to get hold of some clobber from a decent label. That way, you can afford to take some risks with colours and styles, and people that may question your fashion credentials if it were an unbranded piece will be left in no doubt that you are simply way ahead of them in knowing what's cool. For example, bright, clashing colours are big news when worn with style, but can look so wrong if you haven't got that fashionable edge.
For some, a pink T-shirt is still a grey area, but if you opt for one like this from G-STAR, you've got that extra hit of confidence that comes from wearing designer. Go designer for other items of clothing that really benefit from the branding: for example the rest of G-Star’s range at Bank will kit you out in hoodies, sweaters and tank tops to ensure that whatever you throw on the morning after, you'll look good.
It's alright for girls. They can wear tiny dresses, crop tops and strappy vests when it's hot, but what can you do? Well, it's not so bad; summer style has some pretty good offerings for the men out there:
You can look great in knee length shorts. Team dark shorts with a bright tee, a la Lou Dalton's spring/summer 2013 collection for city cool, or opt for a pair in light stone for a look more suited to the jetsetter, if that’s what you're channelling. You could team this lighter option with a similarly pale designer shirt for an expensive, slightly preppy look.
Lighter coloured tees are better in the hot weather, but don’t be boring; a contrasting pocket detail adds interest, while pale stripes are always a winner.
