7 Days of Summer Essentials - Finale!!

The Linen Suit!!!  A must have for those summer weddings and cool evenings.  A great staple that will always be worn and can be mixed and matched.  The linen fabric is lighter and much more breathable than a wool suit.  Also you can get them with no lining or half lining on the inside, they also come fully lined.  The only thing to note with a linen suit is that is is much more prone to wrinkle, which is fine as it is part of the character of linen.

7 Days of Essential Summer Style - Day 6!!

Rope Belt!!  Or alternately a Canvas belt.  Either way you'll need a more casual look to with your shorts or chino's.  The Rope belt has made it's comeback last season but like everything else, the play with color is big this year especially with the canvas belts.  So if you don' have one yet, have some fun and get yourself one with a little color!

The Beige color is a safe bet and blends well with most color combinations.

The Navy Blue works well with light color clothing combinations.

7 days of Essential Summer Style - Day 5!!

Shades!!!  Perhaps one of the most important accessory you will need.  It will define your overall appearance!  I always stress to have two pairs of sunglasses one in black & one in Havana (brown).  Depending on what your wearing you'll need to color match it.  A third pair of sport sunglasses is also quite advisable.  Contrary to what others say never go cheap on your sunglasses, get yourself a name quality and it will last a life time!  So you're asking whats in style this summer, well.......the big aviator style sunglasses have had their popularity run and the wayfarers are starting to get old.  Don't get me wrong these are great classic styles that will always be in.  But the style making the comeback are the keyholed or often referred to as the Steve McQueen Persol.

Either way sunglasses with a noticeable frame is were it's heading!
