In the summertime it can get blisteringly hot and everyone seems to want to get naked to cool off. Unfortunately, guys can only take so much off before being arrested. Aside from making a trip to a nude beach, you can sport some summer wear and keep cool while looking hot. Whether you’ve got a body like an athlete or something a little pudgier, there’s clothes that will work for you. To put them together into an outfit that your next date will love, keep reading.
Okay, we’re not talking the booty shorts that women like to don during the summer, but something that’s above the knee for sure. Most men shy away from shorts that are fitted or cut higher because they’re afraid that they’ll look gay, but that’s all in the attitude. A pair of jean shorts that are cut off at about four or five inches above the knee should fit well, otherwise you’ll look like you’re wearing a pair of boxers. Keeping them well fitted gives them a look of the shorts that yacht kids wear when they go out instead. Don’t shy away from colors, either. You’ll look very fashionable and she’ll want you as her arm candy.
Here’s a secret: women don’t like it when you wear sandals. They show off our hairy feet and remind them that we don’t get our toe nails all nicely manicured like they do. Instead of getting out last year’s pair, invest in some lightweight shoes. The best kind are made of canvas since it can breathe better than most and get wet without it being an issue. Shoes like these are pretty much made for summer as they go well with shorts and swim trunks. Again, the main point of this is to look like you’re one of the guys in the magazines. Most men don’t wear these sorts of things without a sense of fashion, so that will definitely appeal to her.
It’s probably safe to assume that you won’t constantly be at the beach during the summer. For those times that you have to go inside for things like dates or meeting her parents, it’s a good idea to have some light outerwear. Men can get away with cardigans now, which is the best choice since it’s not going to make you too warm and it’s easy to throw over a shirt. The issue is that her parents or your friends will probably think that it’s a little bit feminine to wear. That’s fine, instead go for a pullover sweater. These are just as light, but don’t have buttons up the front like cardigans do. You have to pull them over your head which can mess up your hair and cause your clothes underneath to bunch up.
What you wear during the summer is up to you, but taking some tips from the men’s world of fashion can make sure that you’re comfortable and look good. While both are important, we all know what the ladies prefer.
