During the Summer season, you’ll be attending many events. You’ll be going to BBQ’s, parties, bonfires, softball games, and hopefully dates. The question is: do you know what to wear in order to make you look dapper?
Summertime is the best time of year to meet new people, especially women. You have to make sure you’re dapper during the Summer months, even though you should be dapper 24/7. Let us here at John Dapper go over some of the must-have clothing items that will keep you dapper all Summer long.
Hats: During Summer, one thing is for certain: the sun will be out and blazing! So a very good investment will be some hats. I would buy a few hats to match with your different outfits. Some good hats to buy would be a couple of classic fitted baseball caps for everyday use, a fedora for a touch of class when you hit the town, and a cap that has made a surging comeback: the snap-back for when you’re on the beach.
Sunglasses: Once again, let us not forget that the sun will be out and on full blast during the Summer. This means it’s time to re-up your sunglass collection and buy some new dapper shades. This will not only help you look good, but it will also protect your eyes from those harmful UV rays. Some top brands that are always stylish would be some Oakley’s or Ray-Ban’s. Check out our article on sunglasses for some dapper recommendations.
T-Shirts: Another important item in your wardrobe this Summer will be your t-shirt collection. When you go to your summertime events, you need your t-shirt to look dapper, real dapper. And you’ll need plenty of fresh t-shirts because you don’t want to wear the same one all the time. Don’t be that guy who wears the same t-shirts year after year. Luckily for you, John Dapper provides many options with our Summer 2012 collection.
Shorts: During these hot months, you probably don’t want to wear pants. It’s too hot and you don’t want to sweat in places you shouldn’t be sweating. Invest in some nice cargo shorts, khaki shorts, and especially board shorts for when you hit the beach. These types of shorts go with everything and will always make you look good. Remember, it’s summertime, so we want to look good and feel good at the same time.
Pants: If you must wear pants this Summer, a nice-looking option are khakis. Khakis feel good, look good, and are relatively inexpensive. You should wear these pants when you go on date to a bar or restaurant. Khakis can also be matched with every kind of shoe and shirt in your closet so have fun exploring the combos.
Shoes: Everyone is going to wear tennis shoes this the Summer, so change it up a little and pick a few different styles of shoes. Deck shoes are always classy and look great with shorts and pants. Investing in a quality deck shoe will be wise because you can also wear these during the Spring months, like right now.
Watches: You will definitely need a dapper watch for the Summer. It’s not dapper to check the time on your phone. A true dapper man has a watch because it’s a tool. Don’t be the guy who leaves his wrist bare and invest in a quality timepiece. MSTR offers a nice selection and are sure to make you stand out. Check them out.
