If you’re like me and live in a place where you are praising the heavens because you get more than a week of sunshine during summer (Britain). More often than not your clothes match the weather, in sunnier places such as Spain etc you can’t move for colourful tank tops and Hawaiian shirts but in Scotland the majority of our wardrobe is black. Black jeans, black t shirts, black hats, black shirts but sometimes you might mix it up and throw i a bit of colour such as brown or grey when you are feeling adventurous.
With the sunshine hitting the UK and people getting ready to fly to sunnier climates a lot of people want to save money for their holidays so I’m writing this to help guys to get some last minute bits and pieces without blowing your “party” money.
LET’S START FROM THE TOP
You can purchase this brown fedora hat from River Island for only £22. Fedora hats have never been more popular especially for guys.Many celebrities have been ditching their black fedora for Summer for a more “colourful” brown. Although this is a very in-season hat not everyone can pull it off. I feel this style works better if you have longer hair.
One Direction’s Harry Styles & McBusted bassist Dougie Poynter are known to rock the brown fedora.
You can find this poncho in 3 various colours here at Charlotte’s Web for only £26. Roughly about 12 years ago the poncho made an unexpected comeback where every girl and her granny were strolling about ponchos for one Summer only.and then vanished off the face of the earth. However, recently more and more celebrities have been seen sporting the poncho recently. This Summer is set to mark the return of the poncho but this time it’s for guys!
Fashionable singer Cody Simpson and super cool hit-maker Pharrell have been sporting the poncho recently
Knee-length Denim Shorts
These Rip Curl Lay Day knee-length, straight-fitted shorts are only £21.49 and have been reduced by 50% at Surf Dome. These denim shorts are the ultimate Summer must-have’s. You don’t want your shorts too short where they resemble hot pants nor do you really want baggy 3 quarter lengths. These are great if you are used to wearing jeans all year round and aren’t fully comfortable exposing your legs because your legs haven’t saw sunshine in a year and scared about how they’ll react to being exposed to sunlight. Jokes aside, they’re fashionable and you can wear them with a whole range of different outfits whether you’re on a beach, surfing, exploring and embracing different cultures or passed out with a bottle of tequila in your hand.
Zac Efron and Douglas Booth have often favoured a longer-length style of denim shorts
These shoes you can Purchase from ASOS for only £25. This season’s must-have footwear they are as comfortable as they are stylish. I wouldn’t advise wearing socks with them unless they are ankle-socks and they’ll be great for strolling along the beach in.
