Summer is approaching fast.The temperature is already reaching 45* in our part of the word. It's super hot out there.
Looking sharp in the summers can be little difficult because you can't use a lot of layering pieces. You have to play around simple, comfortable clothes that help you beat the heat.
Two most important things you need be careful about when building your summer wardrobe are
1. Clothes should be airy/breathable
2. And don't buy clothes that are too tight. AKA you should feel comfortable in them.
As we recommend in our capsule wardrobe guide, here're a few pieces you should consider having your in your wardrobe this summer.
1. A couple of basics t-shirts (ideally 3). Preferably in white, beige, light blue colours. You can also go for some bright colours, such as orange, cyan blue to spice up your summer wardrobe a bit.
2. A few basic shirts (ideally 3 casuals, 1 formal). You can have 2 solid casual shirts one in light blue and one in white. 1 plaid or check shirt in whatever colour you like. And one dress shirt preferably in white or light blue.
3. 1 washed indigo denim. Opt for a lightweight denim fabric, so you feel comfortable wearing them.
4. 1 basic chinos. Best to go for a navy or khaki colour chinos.
5. 3 shoes. One dress shoes, oxfords or monks, one pair of chukka shoes and a pair of cool white sneakers.
6. And if you like Polo shirts (we don't) then you can have a couple of them summery colours.
