The temperatures are finally beginning to rise and it really does seem to have come out of nowhere. British summers are renowned for being unpredictable, however, that's no excuse to be poorly dressed.
The change in temperature means only one thing - updating your summer wardrobe! There is nothing worse than being unprepared and if you’re going to get it right this summer then reading on is highly recommended.
When it comes to men's fashion you’ll find various pieces are pretty transitional, however, there are some key items that you simply can’t do without. With that taken account, lets take a look how you can improve your style this summer.
A patterned shirt
Patterned shirts tend to appear in men's fashion every summer, however, 2014 is about being understated by using smaller prints. It’s not just about florals either, and you can get hold of some great patterned shirts that are sure to make you stand out.
A new suit
A new suit is vital for the summer months; as the weather starts to improve the social calendar tends to get pretty full and a new summer suit is a key piece that will see you through. Whether you’re off to a wedding or a day at the races a well tailored suit will ensure that your style is on point what ever the occasion.
Shorts aren’t always appropriate, but you can make sure your legs have room to breathe this summer by ensuring you have a pair or two of lightweight trousers. Opt for a pastel colour - pink is a top colour for 2014 and it will virtually go with any of your wardrobe staple colours.
A rain jacket
Of course no summer is complete without the odd shower or two so to ensure you’re prepared get yourself a trench or fisherman's jacket; this way you’ll beat of the showers but still be on trend.
Some cotton tees
A good supply of cotton tees to see you through the warmer months is crucial. Stick to neutral tones that can be teamed underneath a utility shirt in the day or underneath a deconstructed blazer for the cooler nights.
