Sun’s Out, Guns Out

Summer time means looking cool and staying cool and you can’t go wrong with a colorful tank and a great pair of shorts. Here are some stellar style combos that will get you noticed and keep you on top of the summer scene.

RVCA has a lot of great tanks but none leave a mark like the Horton Biter Tank. Pair it with these G-Star Raw shorts and no one will question how brave you are.

If you are the kind of guy whose weekends always end up a little fuzzy, then the Benny Gold Party Animals Tank was made for you. The bright colors will get you noticed and the Hurley Block Party Boardshorts will make it a night to not remember.

It may be bright outside but if you are a little darker grab the Iron Fist Loose Tooth Boardshorts and Rook Veiled Tank. You will still be noticed, even in the shadows.

Girls have guns too and there will be no arguing your power over the guys with the Metal Mulisha Bomb Tank and Tripp Highwaisted PVC Shorts. The combination is lethal and the boys will be left drooling.

The waves are strong and the sun is hot, so pack some tanks and shorts to show off what you’re working with this summer and don’t forget your sunglasses and sandals.

Summer Style

I’m going to do a quick summer style guide for you guys and also touch on how to put together some new outfits to re-vamp your summer wardrobe. From hats, down to kicks and every piece in between that not only looks cool but also keeps you cool in the heat! Let’s first take a look at some of this summer’s popular trends to get started and take it from there.

Chino Shorts

Aside from the few trends I’ve already touched on in previous posts, the big one that I’m noticing more as it heats up outside, is chino shorts. I’ve seen a massive “aesthetic shift” this season, from the once overly-praised baggy (camo) cargo shorts, now onto a more sleek, clean cut look and above-the-knee fit with chinos. I personally feel that this style of short works and looks much better with your thinner cut shoes (i.e. Vans, Chuck taylors, etc.) than baggy cargo shorts would. Not to mention, they will show off your socks a lot better too for you crazy sock collectors out there.

5-Panel Hats

Not that I’d call this a “new trend” exactly, but a trend this summer nonetheless. The 5-Panel hat. I somewhat see this trend going hand in hand with the chino shorts. Everyone’s been on snapbacks and Cargo shorts for the past few summers and now we see this shift towards a cleaner, less busy style. Perhaps people have become bored with the same old Wiz Khalifa/Justin Bieber wardrobe everyone wears. With a fresh pair of black or grey chino shorts matching your t-shirt (opposite color from choice of your shorts of course), or even just a plain white tee, this grey paisley 5-panel from Crooks&Castles¬†will be “the cherry on top” of your outfit.

And of course…… Tank Tops

I don’t care what you have to say about tank tops and their lack of fabric where you feel there maybe should be. If you live in Tucson or anywhere in Arizona for that matter, they are absolutely vital to your well being for the summer. Trust me, you will still look “cool” and stay even cooler in the blistering desert heat. If I were to go with this 10 Deep tank top, (headed to a 4th of july shin-dig, duh!) I would pair it with those khaki Brixton Chino Shorts above and then for my footwear decision, I’d keep the patriotism rolling and throw on these “star spangled” Vans to match.

Maybe even throw this Red Nixon “Supertide” on my wrist if I’m feelin’ spiffy! Be sure to share the outfits you come up with in the comments below.
