FIVE THINGS WE USE TO SMARTEN UP DURING SUMMER
The pieces that helps us staying cool and well dressed during summer time
As we prepare for summer wool sweaters and heavy blazers are moved to the back of the closet. That means that the best spots in the wardrobe are now ready to be filled with new and exiting stuff. Pieces we will wear all summer long. Summer has all these different events. Summer weddings, barbeque parties, football with the boys, trips to the beach etc. While these pieces might not be appropriate for all of them, they will indeed help us attend these different happenings in style. These are some of the pieces that make the backbone of our summer wardrobe (of course add a tie, but we’ll guess you already know that by now).
Loafers are the smart choice. They are the perfect item to wear when you want to dress smart-casual. They are both sleek and cool. They can be worn with jeans, with shorts and with your finest trousers. In general, loafers will rarely let you down. Surprisingly, many do not wear loafers very often. But that should be just the reason why you should do it. We love most loafers, however the ones in suede are our favorites during summer time.
No summer without a new pair of sunglasses. Living in Copenhagen – where the sun isn’t out that much during the year – we never skip an opportunity to wear sunglasses when it’s finally summer. Choosing the right frames might be difficult, but worth the time when you happen to find them as they will always give an edge to your look.
Again, most people do not wear these. It’s a shame, but should motivate you to wear one. It’s the perfect summer item. It’s a breathable blazer that makes it easy to wear most of the days during summer. Likewise, the textured material just screams ‘SUMMER’. We prefer those in light colors to make it real summer-ish.
We need to dress accordingly to the season. Linen is for sure the material of the summer. And linen shirts are one of the most awesome items you can ever wear this whole season. Breathable and cool. And luckily, they come in so many different colors and patterns why it should be easy for you to find one that compliments your style. If in doubt on where to look try Oscar Jacobson or Uniqlo. They have your back for sure.
Short Sleeved Camp Collar Shirts
A trend that has been here for the last couple of years. Luckily for us – because we really dig these – they are still cool. They look so cool and comfortable. Like a short-sleeved pyjama top that can be worn buttoned up or undone over a t-shirt. Find one in strong colors and strong patterns and you are set.
