How to Get Ready for Summer as Told By Our Style Gurus

Our
most stylish influencers give tips on how to get summer-ready

Spring
has sprung away and it’s officially summer. Sometimes the hardest task, besides
trying to find beach parking, is how to dress properly for the heat. If you
have a job that requires you to dress up a bit, it can be even more challenging.
This
is why we asked our Style Gurus, the unofficial official experts in menswear,
how they get ready for summer. This is what they had to say.

“I
swap out my blazers and go with cotton, seersucker and linen blazers. Need to
keep cool during those hot days and it starts with the fabric choices. I also
will be using no-show socks to keep the calves cool. My summer looks will also
always include a cool pair of sunglasses!”

“I
get ready for the summer by hiding away my winter clothing and breaking out the
shorts, short sleeve shirts, linen, and swimwear. My style advice for the
summer is to really embrace colors and patterns, don’t be afraid to use
swimwear for other things besides the pool, and add some fun hats to your
lineup.”

mixing them in with spring cotton ties.”

“Well
first thing I bring out in the summertime is my summer suits – linen is your
best friend! I also have a seersucker tie that I absolutely love!”

“Getting
ready for summer is a process but it usually involves lugging winter wear into
storage (hello New York). However, it also involves switching to no-show socks,
assessing/purging all my tees and short sleeves to make sure they’re inline
with what vibes I’m going for, and switching to iced coffee!
I
don’t wear shorts ever (and neither does Tom Ford so it’s fine) so I get my
cropped trousers and cuff game ready.”

“Well
first off I get most of the winter stuff down and into bins to make room for
the new clothes and clothes I picked up on sale during the winter season. I
love wearing suits, but I do also live in Texas! So I like to find out where I
will be that day and how long, then let that decide if it will be a breathable
light suit (linen or cotton) or a nice polo shirt and shorts.
I
like to wear a lot of light colors, I haven’t done research but it makes me
feel like I’m a bit cooler when I’m outside. I show a lot of ankle in the
warmer months. So no show socks, loafers, and a new pair of all white low tops
are always in rotation.
Lastly,
I love to wear sunglasses at any glimpse of sun, plus they make you look 78%
cooler. Just have a lot of fun with outfits and mix different colors, it works
for me!”

“I
prepare for summer by hitting my CrossFit gym 4x a week. I’m pretty much gonna
be sore all  summer, but the amount of
calories I’m burning and the core work I’m getting makes me feel good about
putting on those swim trunks.”

summer workouts and suits according to Ryan Rosenkilde @ryan.rosenkilde
“With
summer approaching, I’m taking my workout routine a little more seriously.
Warmer
months bring a whole slew of issues for your skin. Sweat, sun, increased oil
production…It’s a mess! I’m incorporating a daily moisturizer with SPF and
ensuring all of my products are oil free to help cut back on the shine by
midday.
From
a style perspective, I’m loading up on warm weather essentials. I love having a
good selection of shorts, crew neck t-shirts, and no-show socks so I have
plenty of options to get me through the summer.”
