Cool Clothes, Cool Dad
With Father’s Day around the corner, it’s the perfect excuse to update dad’s wardrobe without outright saying "Dad, it’s time to rethink the screen tees." Help dad stay cool while looking even cooler with these summertime classics that are sure to get him turning a few more heads.
For a summer barbeque
This casual, yet put together look is perfect for a hot summer barbeque, either over a T-shirt or worn alone. Dockers sells a great version with their Laundered Poplin Shirt. Giving a nod to the classic picnic table cloth, this poplin piece can be worn with jeans or khakis throughout summer. $35 at Dockers.com.
For a day by the pool
Swim trunks are a tricky thing to buy for someone. With so many loud colors and styles, it's easy to mistake tacky for fashion. Stick with the classics. Buy dad a great pair of solid swim trunks that won't go out of fashion, like this Nike pair with just enough red details to keep them interesting. $60 at altrec.com.
To block the sun
Everyone needs a little extra sun protection in the summer months, so make sure dad does it in style. Skip the drug store sunglasses and opt for something durable and classic, like these Dockers Wayfarer-style glasses with thick square frames and undeniable class. $20 at Amazon.com.
For the casual man on-the-go
A great pair of slip-ons are great for any season, but during the summer, those slip-ons turn into flip flops. Go casual, yet classic with these Dockers Sherman sandals, complete with stitched leather detailing and a cushioned bottom to ensure dad's comfort. Pair them with a great pair of khaki shorts or jeans to complete the look. $54 at Zappos.com.
To get some sun on those legs
He might not be hanging out on the beach, but dad will spend a decent amount of time outside this summer. Make sure he does it in comfort with some weather-appropriate shorts, like these Classic Flat Front Shorts from Dockers. Available in an array of summertime colors, dad will keep it fresh while staying comfortable. $27 at Dockers.com.
For running in the sun
Whether he's out for a summertime stroll or just heading to the grocery store, every man needs a great, fashionable pair of athletic shoes. This Asics pair keeps things simple and classic while offering the support dad needs to get his errands done, then head to the gym for a round of lifting or cardio. $71 at Zappos.com.
