The weather’s heating up but that doesn’t mean you have to be confined to tanks and thongs all summer. If you look around on a hot day, it’s obvious that a lot of guys struggle with dressing nicely in the heat. You may quickly dismiss collared shirts on summer days, but when the right fabrics are used, a collared shirt can actually be a go-to in your summer wardrobe. Relaxed tailoring using lightweight and breathable materials will keep you cool and the structure of these garments will keep you looking in top form throughout the hotter months.
It’s called ‘Destination Resort’, a name that perfectly captures the feeling of the latest collection from French Connection. It’s cool and comfortable and the effortless style of the collection will ensure you’re dressing like a man rather than a teenager this summer.
Attention to detail, particularly in surface texture is a major point to note in this collection. Soft open weaves of linen, linen-cotton, lightweight slub cotton and superfine poplin give you the airy feeling you’re after on those days best spent hanging poolside or at the beach.
Shorts also come into play in this collection, with a unique selection of washes, finishes, prints and fabrications providing the basis of your summer essentials when it comes to the bottom half. Pairing these garments with a canvas slip ons is a great way to fully capture that resort vibe.
