Happy Stylish Fathers Day

 

I am also sure, not everyone has a dad with the styling ease of the charming Hugh Jackman, as pictured below, nor are most as well known or paid. However, I am certain, we all wish at times to be able to really spruce up our dads look, especially when Father’s Day comes around each year.

Trying to turn your dads style upside down all at once is not easy, nor is it really advised. Dad, still needs to be Dad, and he still wants to be comfortable in whatever he chooses to wear.

It is best to pick one item that he needs, and freshen up this particular item with a modern style e.g., If your dad needs a new pair of casual shoes, you may wish to swap his usual slip on shoes (thongs) or lace ups with a funky pair of canvas sneakers, like the pair below (Nike Killshot Sneaker $99.99 available at Glue stores). Choosing a neutral shade will ensure that your Dad doesn’t feel like he is going back to school and that can wear his new shoes with all his usual pants and shorts.

Alternatively, you may decide that Dad needs some new sunglasses to style up his look and keep his cool in the warmer months. Make sure the sunglasses you choose for Dad have the optimum sun protection, as you want him to be able to see his fantastic new styling for years to come. Aviators are a great choice; they come in many frame and lens types from metal frames to mirrored or slightly graduating tint lenses. Aviators really came into their own after the film Top Gun debuted, and if your Dad sees himself as the Tom Cruise cool cat type, aviators are a great choice. Keep in mind your Dads face shape and colouring when choosing sunglasses. Quicksilver have a great range of sunglasses for men and they are reasonably priced, with finishes such as tortoiseshell and a square shaped frame, these aviators will really set off your Dads new look.

So, Dad has all the accessories he needs? How about a crisp new styling shirt that Dad can wear everywhere and anywhere? Chambray (or denim) shirts are popping up everywhere and come in a great variety of styles. My favorite styles are left unbuttoned with a cool white v-neck tee and a pair of cargo shorts or pants in a neutral shade. Rolled up sleeves and a splash of fresh cologne completes the look and feel.

You can always add a straw trilby, baseball cap, or a masculine styled chronograph timepiece to ensure a smooth casual style for Dad.

This Father’s day, Your Dad is going to be styling!!
