Spending time outdoors with your loved ones is something we all love to do, especially during the summer. Whether it be a country walk, a spot of fishing, a round of golf or any other outdoor activity, summer is the perfect time to engage yourselves in fun filled activities. However, knowing what to wear for summer activities isn’t always easy!
It’s a well known fact that dressing comfortably whilst also maintaining your style is tricky. Fortunately, Chums have produced a really useful #DressedToGo guide on how to dress this summer. Simple hacks such as dressing in light shades are always advised during the warmer summer months. Choosing the right attire is important if you want to look good AND feel good. For men, there are lots of options when it comes to summer styles. For a social event or gathering, go for a polo shirt and a nice pair of shorts, coupled with a pair of tasseled loafers for the ultimate summertime sartorial look. A polo shirt is a staple piece in every man’s summer wardrobe. Light pastel shades look particularly good with dark shorts. A polo shirt is such a versatile piece of clothing- it can be worn for a social event just as easily as it can be worn on the golf course.
When it comes to your lower half, light-weight cotton trousers are the ideal item to wear as the temperatures rise. Jeans and heavy twill chinos will soon become uncomfortable if worn during the daytime so try to avoid them at all costs. Cotton trousers can equally be worn on the golf course or out hiking. Alternatively, cargo shorts will keep you cooler if you’re getting active.
Getting outdoors and keeping active has a number of well-known benefits: not does it improve your physical health, but also your mental wellbeing. Spending just an hour outdoors taking part in moderate activity has been proven to improve the quality of life. A sedentary lifestyle can lead to a number of serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. So get out there this summer and get moving!
