As soon as the year starts, we tend to start planning our holidays in advance and undoubtedly a major part of them are found to be revolving around warm, sunny beaches. But most men find it a hard task to pack the right kinds of outfit for the beach. The most appropriate beach outfits for men involve items that are easy, effortless, comfortable, yet dapper. Here are the stylish beach essentials for the fashionable men out there to get you sorted for the sun, sand and sea!
Stick to basics
Now a beach vacation is just incomplete without your basic essentials like a handful of polo shirts and some of them need to be in bright summery hues like yellow, coral, lime or turquoise, along with a couple of neutral shades that are safe go-to options. Team a basic polo tee with a pair of lightweight cotton grey or cream chinos which you can also roll up above the ankle for a more beach-y vibe. Complete the look with a canvas strap watch and a pair of breathable espadrilles to raise the temperature higher with your suave style!
Let’s go tropical
Tropical prints and beaches are like a match made in fashion heaven! You can sport a solid coloured crew neck t-shirt paired with tropical printed cotton shorts and a pair of slippers for some lounging time on the sun-beds lining the beach. You can also go for a tropical printed short sleeved shirt that will look best with neutral-hued pair of linen pants for a breezy evening walk around town. The most important role for sporting printed pieces is to keep the rest of the outfit subtle and restrained. There’s no better place to indulge in the cool tropical trend than during a summer holiday, so make the most of it!
Brave the sun in stripes
Breton stripes are perfect symbols of the holiday spirit and can be effortlessly flaunted while exploring a charming seaside town. Donning a round neck striped t-shirt with a checked pair of shorts will make for the perfect print on print look. You can also go for a casual, comfy pair of joggers with a stripes tee for more laid-back & sporty vibes. Add a pair of casual sneakers and don’t forget your reliable reflector sunglasses to have fun in the sun in that ultimate spot-on beach bum look.
Chambray to the rescue
Denim is definitely an inappropriate choice for a beach outfit, but its lighter cousin, Chambray, can take your summer style up by several notches. Chambray is a light-weight and breathable alternative to denim, which can take the place of your ubiquitous wardrobe staples, denims, during the holiday. A Chambray shirt can be worn both during the day or the night, and looks uber-cool and casual when paired with a pair of beige linen shorts. Accessorized with a woven tan leather belt and a pair of suede boat shoes, this outfit paints the perfect beach picture. You can also add a beach-perfect panama hat to score brownie fashion points!
For all the men out there who are packing for a trip to the seaside, these easy-breezy outfits will make your holiday pictures look effortlessly stylish. And for those who have not yet planned their summer holidays, now you have all the more reason to book those tickets and embark on a sunny and stylish beach getaway!
