I was going to start this blog with the phrase “summer is here!” but, given some of the horrific weather hitting parts of the UK and the ominously grey skyline outside, we’ll refrain. However, that still doesn’t mean that we have to stop planning for those few glorious rays of sunshine.
The challenge, however, is to pack in just the right amount so that we can look our best but still get around those pesky low-cost airline baggage restrictions. Given that checking a bag into the underbelly of a plane can now cost nearly as much as the holiday itself, we’re packing light.
And we’re doing that by filling our bad with clothes that look good no matter what the scenery. No matter where we are, day or night, we’re going for a small wardrobe that works everywhere and anywhere.
On that basis, this Selected Mens Slim Fitted Shirt with Roll Ups and French Connection Mens Slash Neck Crew Tee will both fit the bill. Both of them could easily be worn casually on a beach-front café during the day yet they’d both work just as well in the evening.
In keeping with that nautical theme, we’re going to pick out these Superdry Washbasket Mens Shorts. We’re expecting to find lots of shorts in this style on the Mediterranean resorts in summer 2012.
Of course, shorts won’t always work on our summer break so we’re going to throw in a pair of chinos. They’re versatile, on trend and importantly, they’re easy and comfortable to wear even when the temperature rises. What’s more, there are some fantastic new chino styles at Littlewoods.com right now.
Finally, we’re on to the footwear and this is where we turn to plimsolls – easy to wear, great looking and suitable for every occasion. We particularly like this effort from Converse, which would work perfectly in almost any occasion. Alternatively, add a splash of colour with these Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Ox Plimsolls.
Of course, we’ve barely scratched the surface on some of the amazing trends and styles for summer available at Littlewoods.com. Check out the full range of men’s styles in our men’s holiday shop.
