Father's Day gift ideas for the fashionable dad
While some dads seem to live in jeans and sweatshirts, others have a knack for putting together an on-trend outfit. If your dad is more fashion-forward than most, we have some Father's Day gift ideas sure to be in tune with his stylish side.
Spice up dad’s wardrobe with a stylish hat. An especially good choice in the warmer weather, hats are not only fashionable, but functional, too. Choose something with some structure (a fedora or bowler hat) and straw is a great choice for hot days. We love this summer-ready brown straw fedora with a striped band (ronrobinson.com, $78).
Make sure dad’s eyes are protected (and he looks great) with a pair of stylish sunglasses. He’ll appreciate a new pair and you can choose something on-trend (unlike the ones from 15 years ago he keeps wearing) and flattering. We like these Marc by Marc Jacobs aviator shades with glare-reducing polarized lenses (nordstrom.com, $140).
Add a burst of color to dad’s collection of beige, gray and navy blue. This summer is the perfect time to get him to embrace his vibrant side. Hot hues for this summer include yellow, orange, blue and berry red. He’ll be sure to love this red multi tipped polo that will look great with everything from jeans to khakis (topman.com, $36).
Manly messenger bag
If dad is still carrying around his things in a reusable shopping bag, get him something much more practical (and stylish). We know he probably doesn’t like the idea of what many dads refer to as a “man purse,” but there are countless bags available to suit even the manliest dad. He’ll love this stylish, durable messenger bag with multiple pockets (clubmonaco.com, $179).
Chances are, dad has had his wallet for as long as you can remember – and it’s likely starting to show its wear and tear. Give him an excuse to ditch the old wallet but get him something he’ll be proud to carry around. We like this classic leather wallet in a timeless shade of tan (jcrew.com, $75).
