Summer Fashion For Men From House Of Fraser

The Summer is upon on and holidays are here! Now you may be lucky to have a partner, brother, son or dad who loves fashion, but what if they don't? Does your dad still wears 'budgie smugglers', you know the tight lycra swimming trunks that barely covers the essentials, that were last fashionable in 1972? Do you find it impossible to get your son out of his black t-shirts with a death metal band on the front? 

Well here is some style advice for the men in your life, courtesy of The Diary Of A Jewellery Lover and House Of Fraser for this Summer season. These are the Summer essentials of 2016.

A stylish polo shirt

Ralph Lauren slim fit polo shirt was £75 now £60

For the teenager who won't get out of t-shirts, a polo shirt is the next best thing. This Ralph Lauren polo shirt is slim fit, in a blue marl and has the iconic logo in a bright colour.  A classic design that is smart enough to wear out for a meal on holiday. Also available in grey marl, and royal blue. 

Classic linen shorts
Linea Campbell linen shorts Was £45 now £27

If your man doesn't have these in his wardrobe, go buy them now. These linen shorts are a great wardrobe essential for Summer. In a cool breathable fabric, you can wear these shorts with a shirt, polo shirt or t-shirt and still look smart and effortlessly stylish. 

Swim shorts in a cool print

Linea Deck Chair Print Swim Shorts Was £30 now £24

These swim shorts have a playful deck chair print without being too garish. The contemporary pattern brings a modern classic up-to-date and the elasticated waist and drawstring fastening ensures you will not lose them in the pool or sea! Perfect for those with a dad bod.

The must have flip flops

Havaianas Brazil Logo Flip Flops was £21 now £16

With the Olympics just around the corner, show your support with these Havaianas Brazil logo flip flops. Havaianas are known for comfort and these flip flops also come in black and grey if cobalt blue is not your colour.

  1. Nice picks, although I am struggling to picture my husband ever wearing flip flops lol! I should buy him a pair :)

    1. Well flip flops are for the beach and Summer holidays :) not every day in the UK!

  2. Both my husband and son are pretty hopeless when it comes to clothes shopping for themselves, so I tend tend to choose everything. My husband has a pair of linen shorts and they are fabulous - stylish and cooling to wear. A staple wardrobe item, absolutely. Tx

  3. Will pass this on to my brother, he is very into his fashion and is always looking for new fashion ideas!

  4. Great picks, I really love the deck chair shorts and you can never go wrong with Havaiana's! xo

  5. Loving your picks. I really like the polo shirt. So stylish.

  6. Some great items here, they all look fab for summer x

  7. House of Fraser have a really fantastic choice when it comes to mens wear - I know John often picks up pieces from there.
