The changing of seasons brings with it a whole new wardrobe. We put away the heavy cotton and move to breathable materials such as linen, cashmere, and silk. The colors brighten from the darker blues and grays into brighter hues. Bright white apparel awakens from hibernation for a refreshing summer look. Edward Baumann Clothiers recommends several big tips for pulling off a stunning appearance in warm weather.
1. Lightweight jackets
Sport coats and blazers look great any time of the year. You retire heavier jackets for their thinner cousins made of linen, seersucker, or other light cottons.
2. Flip flops don’t cut it
Flip flops are fine for house wear or during a trip to the beach. We recommend avoiding flip flops around the city. Opt for the boat shoe or loafer for a convenient slip on you can pair with shorts.
3. Sock or not
The great style debate lives on whether to wear noticeable socks during summer. For the daring, pairing energetic bright pattern socks with your casual oxfords lace ups might do the trick. We recommend going sockless with loafers or boat shoes for the simpler option. Edward Baumann Clothiers carries invisible socks for the appearance of the sockless look. If you’ve worn other types of socks like this in the marketplace and feel unsatisfied with how they perform, give ours a try.
4. Lively colors
Black and gray step aside and say hello to the warmly welcoming colors that soak up the sun. Light blues, greens, and even pinks make their appearance during this time of year. Opt for colors you can safely match with your outfit and shoes.
5. Choose your shorts carefully
Summer shorts feel great and we love the feeling of a cool summer breeze as long as you avoid anything too long or too short. The shorts should reach somewhere between mid-knee and mid-thigh.
6. Don’t sweat the small stuff
Men who sweat a severe amount can reduce this problem by removing meat from a meal during the day. Meat causes the body’s metabolism to speed up and increases the amount you sweat. We enjoy a thick steak as much as the next gentleman, although sometimes sacrifices are necessary.
