Men’s MUST Haves For Summer 2012
Now guys, you haven’t been forgotten about! Men’s fashion this summer is completely casual with a small touch of class (bow-ties, blazers, fedoras). There is no reason why you can’t wear that leather jacket with your work pants or a bow-tie when you’re not even going out. If you try some of these outfits that have been put together for you, or add some of these accessories, you will score some fashion points with the ladies without even trying!
-Colored trousers/Chino (Try cuffing)
-Boat shoes or loafers
-Casual jacket (Jean/Leather)
To all the men out there, one thing that Never goes out of fashion is a plaid button-up shirt. They were huge last fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still wear them. Grab a light colored button-up for spring and add some white trousers or jeans to brighten up your wardrobe for summer. Adding some boat shoes or loafers will also give you a more laid back look and that works for going to breakfast, all the way to going out for dinner. Tip off this look by adding some simple accessories; a belt and a silver watch will do the trick!

Now guys, bow-ties aren’t just for nerds or going to weddings, you can actually wear one and get a great response from the ladies. Wear a colored dress shirt with a collar, some jeans, and some loafers and this will be the perfect outfit to try adding that bow-tie that you have, but can never find the right look for. Patterned bow-ties offer a fun touch rather than the typical, dressy look. You can definitely add a blazer on top and completely pull the look together.

Every man needs that jacket that he can throw on and instantly get that “bad boy” feeling. A leather jacket gives that “rough around the edges” look without scaring the girls away. They actually like that tough guy look believe it or not. A bonus is that you can add a leather jacket with anything, even work slacks and dress shoes; it is really as versatile as you are comfortable. If you’re in an area where it is hot most of the year, opt for a jean jacket. It still gives that tough guy look but a way lighter feel. Try adding each jacket on top of a plain t-shirt, add some sneakers and maybe a cap and trust that you will have all the ladies drooling over you.
