The Quick Guide to Looking Dapper this Summer
Do you worry about looking the part? Not sure about your summer wardrobe? Fear not, because here is your book of cheats to keep you looking dapper.
As much as we love winter, it is great when the sun comes out for the absolute best time of the year…summer! Whether you live by the suns out, guns out policy, or prefer to keep your outfit more sophisticated, your individual style will be on point.
Play it Cool
Play it cool to keep you looking and feeling cool. If you are still walking around with your big, thick winter jacket that you got for Christmas, dispose of it now! Well, put it back in the wardrobe, because it is going to get cold again soon.
Don’t feel that you have to compete with everyone else when you walk out of the door. The most important aspect of your dress is that you feel comfortable in yourself and in your clothes.
Festival season is here and that means it’s time to let your hair down and have a good time! Friends, loud music and drink are the perfect summer recipe.
While jumping around in a sea of other people may not be the best time to wear your favourite luxury jewellery, do not fear chains and chokers. Again, we will ask that you play it cool – festivals are not the time for the smart and expensive attire as the chances are you are going to get a little bit muddy.
Leave anything heavy at home or in the tent, as there is nothing sexy about anyone drenched in sweat and appearing to be on the verge of dehydration. Allow your body to breathe, but be classy, too. Tank tops, shorts and summer hats to keep the sun out of your eyes are all acceptable.
Parties come in all shapes and sizes, and for all kind of occasions. Make sure that you look presentable with a flexible outfit – you don’t want to be caught out and be overdressed for a casual get together. If you are not sure exactly what smart-casual means (the term leaves a lot open for debate), then opt for something that would not look out of place in any situation.
The boys can never go wrong with a smart polo shirt and dark jeans accompanied by casual shoes. Of course, if you possess a collection of some of the finest shoes available, matching your ensemble shouldn’t be an issue.
For the ladies, apart from the timeless little black dress, have fun and be as outrageous as the dress code allows. Girls just want to have fun, after all!
Formal occasions do not mean settling for any old suit and tie combination. No sir. Pick out a fine blazer jacket that runs approximately an inch above the cuff of your shirt to nail the business-casual vibe. Mixed with some dapper looking cufflinks, you can find some brilliant examples if you visit this website, you have the perfect formal outfit for those important events.
Women’s outfit can be easily split into two categories – day and evening – when it comes to formal wear. A sophisticated blouse mixed with trousers or pencil skirt is the go-to option for many belles of the boardroom, with or without high-heeled shoes.
If you are attending a black tie event, this is when you are expected to get glammed up with either a full length evening gown or exceptional cocktail dress. As good as something looks always think about how comfortable you will be wearing it throughout the night, hopefully sipping on something flavoursome.
The most important thing to remember this spring is to celebrate being you – 2017 is the age of individuality, so go out and express yourself how only you know best!
