How to Look Cool While Keeping Cool This Summer

It's one thing to literally stay cool, and it's another to look cool. Just because it's hot out and you don't want to wear multiple layers, doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your style. Here are four items you can use to integrate into your summer wardrobe that will keep you comfortable and stylish! 

Men's swimwear by Bather


Now, our opinion is a little bias, but we think everyone can agree that a pair of Bathers will instantly help you improve your style both on and off the beach. They are comfortable and lightweight and our SS17 collection of swim and surf trunks are super versatile and streetwear-appropriate. Even a solid bathing suit with a button-down shirt can be used to create a sharp look for a day of city exploring!

Linen Shirts to wear with your men's bathing suits this summer

Linen Shirts

Besides just being lightweight and breezy, perfect for the hot weather, linen shirts have a nice texture to them which creates more dimension and substance to your overall look as opposed to a solid white cotton tee. Plus, there's a lot of different types of linen shirts, like t-shirt styles, henleys, and button downs. All of these, even the long-sleeve styles, can be easily paired with your swim shorts which will keep you looking cool and feeling cool all summer long!

Accessories to wear with your men's swim shorts


In the summer, you don't really have the opportunity to play up your personal style by adding layers of clothing. But learning how to layer and pair jewelry is a great way to help you look cool and stay cool. Experiment with watches or necklaces and bracelets with nautical or surf motifs to play up the summer vibes! And nothing says "cool" in the summer like a pair of nice shades! But don't choose any random pair. Find a pair that suits your face shape. A pair of sunglasses that fits perfectly and compliments your face can make all the difference in perfecting your summer style!
