The versatile pair of navy chinos is a great standby for summer dressing that is smart but not stuffy. If you think you need something more formal, it would be worthwhile looking at this report on summer suits from The Telegraph.

When the tone is casual, jeans will not let you down. Blue is the colour this season, in a regular fitting. Shorts are also necessary and be sure to choose a classic style that is not embellished with unnecessary pockets or patterns and rests just above the knee.

Shoes are an area where men often stumble. Cover your options with a pair of low maintenance trainers in an off-white shade. For more dressy occasions, invest in a pair of seasonally appropriate suede derbies in a neutral shade that will go well with your jeans and chinos. Also, choose a pair of sunglasses that not only protect your eyes but suit the shape of your face. If necessary, get some advice at an optician. One sophisticated quality pair that suits you is better than a variety of cheap options.

A white T-shirt is always versatile, and can look smart, provided you buy one that is good quality and well finished. Consider investing in one with a smart logo. This makes it more interesting and communicates a sense of style. A lightweight shirt in cotton, flannel or linen in a colour that is neutral or not easily classified, such blue-green, or green-grey, will also be a versatile addition. A shirt jacket is another great choice – throw it over your T-shirt when night falls and the temperature drops. The sweatshirt in a top quality knitted jersey is a classic that can be worn multiple ways. If looking for mens Farah shirts, it would be a good idea to shop with a retailer that has a large range, such as http://ejmenswear.com/brands/farah.

Summer dressing should be fun and relaxed, like the season itself. Stick to good quality garments in classic styles and shapes, and you should be ready for whatever the sunshine may bring.
