Now that the summer season is in full swing, that also means the summer travel season has begun. While many are choosing to stay closer to home this year, there will still be holidaying that occurs, which means there is packing you’ll need to do. So, why not look stylish, put-together, and trendy while on holidays with a few simple pieces that can be included in your luggage. The great thing about high-end items is that they tend to be perfect for mixing and matching, which means you don’t have to pack as many items.
To help you with your packing, here’s a look at the top high-end summer holiday wardrobe essentials for men that will be perfect for any type of travel you have planned.
Designer Swim Shorts
If your holiday involves a beach, lake, or a pool, then you will obviously need to bring some swim shorts with you. Here’s an opportunity to look ultra-stylish, though, and opt for a high-end designer pair rather than the standard non-descript styles out there.
Take, for example, the range of Burberry’s clothing at SSENSE. Listed within the Burberry Clothing line, you’ll find a variety of swim shorts in that unmistakable Burberry print. If you’re not into the classic Burberry print, then there are other styles within the designer brand to choose from. Depending on the style of vacation and the weather, you may just find yourself living in your swim shorts, so you’ll want to be sure they make a fashionable statement.
You can check out the retailer, which is well-known for all things designer and stylish, and browse through the absolutely massive selection of clothing, accessories, footwear and more.
Make a Statement with Your Sunglasses
Sunglasses are another must-have when packing for your summer holiday; in fact, you may even want to pack a couple of pairs. Something like a designer pair of aviator shades is perfect for strolling through city streets, enjoying an outdoor café, and sitting by the pool. If you plan on partaking in sports and activities, then you may prefer something like wraparound sunglasses that protect more of your eyes, are a bit more secure on your face, and are ideal when you’re moving around a lot.
What About Footwear?
Footwear is one of those things that deserve a fair amount of attention as the wrong type of shoes can lead to sore, tired, and uncomfortable feet. The footwear you pack will need to be based on the style of holiday you are taking. Perhaps you need an athletic style shoe for an active vacation that includes a lot of walking and exploring – then again, maybe it is a pool or beach holiday, in which case sandals or flip flops would be ideal.
Chances are you’re going to need to pack a couple of pairs of shoes, so think through what activities you’ll be doing while on holiday.
The Perfect Hat Helps to Keep You Cool and Protected
What’s great about packing a hat is that you have another opportunity to make a fashion statement while protecting your head and face from getting a sunburn. A hat is ideal for summer holidays and can be worn in conjunction with your sunglasses.
As for what style of hat is most trendy, men have a lot of wiggle room here as there are plenty of options available. The classic baseball style hat works well for active guys, whereas something like a straw hat can set more of a statement on a laidback holiday.
The Designer Backpack – a Must-Have
The final item you’ll want to pack is a backpack perfect for throwing all your essentials in like your phone, snacks, a bottle of water, a hat, some SPF sunblock, and so forth. Ideally, it needs to be big enough for the essentials but not too big that it becomes cumbersome to lug around all day. This is especially true if you plan on doing a lot of touring.
Another tip is to go with the backpack style of bag that allows you to wear it on both shoulders. This will distribute the weight evenly, making sure the backpack doesn’t put too much pressure on your shoulder or arms.
As an added note, if the backpack is just too big and unnecessary for you, consider a designer waist pouch. These are becoming quite trendy with men and can be found in a variety of styles, prints, and materials, and are perfect for the little items you need to bring with you.
A Stylish and Practical Holiday Wardrobe
By packing these essentials, you’ll be sure to not only have a stylish wardrobe to show off while on holidays, but you’ll have all the basics and practical items covered.
