Finally, summer is upon us. The grey-tinged skies and cold temperatures have given way to warm sunlight and longer days. Cookouts, company retreats and pool parties are already being organized as you read this. And your hard-earned vacation is just a few weeks away. In other words, it’s the right time to suit up for the summer.

Don’t have time to go through all the latest trends, brands and looks? Focus on nailing these summer accessories and you can make it through the entire season in style.

A PAIR OF SICK SHADES

No summer accessory is as useful and fashion forward as sunglasses. The pair of shades you wear says a lot about your style. They also make just about everyone look a little cooler. Men’s designer sunglasses are more daring than ever this summer. Lens selection alone is broader and badder than before. We suggest giving a nod to the rosy men’s trend of the 50s with a pair of pink-lensed aviators.

STANDOUT SHOES

One of the men’s summer shoe trends from 2013 is still in rotation today. Colourful suede oxfords are still a go-to option for weddings, graduations and other summer milestones. Try a rich dark blue pair with a tan-hued suit for summer cool at its finest.

Other summer shoe styles to consider include:

·  Comfortable, high-quality pair of leather sandals

·  Boat shoes

·  White canvas sneakers

·  Breathable, lightweight tennis shoes

Summer is the time to be a little adventurous with your footwear. Make your feet the focal point with a bright colour or print that says summer fun has arrived.

WINDBREAKER

You no longer need to lug around bulky winter coats, but a stylish windbreaker is always good to have on hand in summer when the sun sinks low on the horizon. Windbreakers will cut the chill while you continue to maintain a cool appearance.

This summer windbreaker styles are all over the place, but the slim cut is quite similar across the board. If you hate the loud rustling noise of a traditional windbreaker, try on the North Face Zephyr windbreaker. It’s made of a super lightweight and wind resistant fleece.

BASEBALL CAPS

The quintessential men’s accessory is headgear. Canadian, European and American men regularly don caps, cowboy hats, visors, fedoras and even skullcaps during the summer.

When caps became a part of major league baseball uniforms it engrained the baseball cap in fashion forever. This year the sporty headgear is more popular than ever. They’re also affordable. Stock up on several baseball caps that compliment all your different summer styles.

WATERPROOF WATCH

Let’s face it. During summer you’re more likely to have water-related fashion accidents. The last thing you want is to forget you’re wearing your Tag Heuer before diving into the pool or lake.

Your watch should be a seasonal accessory. During the summer a slick waterproof watch is much more sensible, and with today’s technology, it can do a lot more than tell time. If you haven’t yet invested in a water-resistant smart watch this summer is a good reason to splurge a little.

You won’t have to worry about any water mishaps and can even clock your vitals while doing a few laps. During the summer you can get away with a sportier band that fits your more active lifestyle. Choose an option that allows you to change out the band and you can easily transition it from summer to fall in a couple of months.

CARRY-ON SIZED TRAVEL BAG

During the summer people are on the go. A compact, durable travel bag is a summer investment that will definitely pay off. It’s the perfect accessory for long-weekend vacations, business trips and overnight stays.

For summer 2017 canvas and leather are the materials of choice for designers. Some even combine the two for a sophisticated yet laidback style. If electronic devices always travel with you, look for a bag that has specially designed compartments so they’re better protected.
