Get The Outfit: Heatwave
With scorching temperatures forecast for the UK next week and our summer sale in full swing, we’re excited to bring you the latest instalment in our Get The Outfit blog series – heatwave edition! Once again we’re working with top London model Ellis Downs to showcase outfits that you’ll definitely want to be owning and flaunting this summer! When the heat is on, most people want to be wearing as little as possible, but it’s no excuse to get sloppy with your fashion choices! If you’re planning on taking full advantage of the weather next week and heading to the pool or beach, or if you’re lucky enough to be heading to a festival or on holiday, we’ve got three looks that will keep you looking and feeling cool while temperatures rise! Summer menswear doesn’t get better than this!
Co-ord’s are all the rage at the moment. You might have seen us feature a stylish co-ord from Kenzo in our previous Get The Outfit blog, but sometimes even a shirt and shorts can feel stifling. If temperatures reach the mid-thirties as predicted next week, when it comes to relaxing, swimwear will be the only option! So if you’re not wearing enough clothes to be able to coordinate them, why not coordinate your swimwear with your accessories? We’ve got not one, but two outfits below that will enable you to do just that.
Ellis is pictured here wearing the Icon bodybag and Icon black tape swimshorts from DSquared2. Both items are designed in black and white with the well-known Icon branding prominently featured throughout, with the shorts featuring the super on trend ‘tape’ style branding crisscrossing the body of the garment. The shorts feature an elasticated waist for all-day comfort and side slip pockets if you run out of storage in your bag. Speaking of the bag, Ellis shows that is is just as versatile as it is stylish, as you can wear it in a number of different configurations depending on your needs and what’s comfortable. Not only that, the bag has a roomy compartment perfect for storing valuables, and it even features a hidden compartment too for those little bits you definitely don’t want to lose.
While these items haven’t been specifically designed to go together, the similar design features make them a perfect match for festivals, pool parties and beach parties. Pair with slides or trainers for a look that will help you to beat the heat all day long. Get these items in our summer sale now – you can find the shorts here and the bag here.
Onto our second swim-cessory co-ord offering, and it comes from none other than Versace. Versace is opulence, so to bring a touch of class, elegance and regality to your summer gatherings, take a look at this stunning cap and shorts combo.
Ellis is wearing the Versace Jewel Print cap and swim shorts. Both garments feature the stunning and bold Gioelleria Jetes print, featuring golden chains, flowers and intricate gemstones emblazoned on top of a black backdrop. The design is incredibly beautiful, eye-catching and sure to be a head-turner wherever you wear it. In typical Versace style, the pieces are constructed with the highest quality detail and materials – the cap is 100% silk with the brand embroidered to the front and a gold medusa clasp to the back allowing you to adjust the fit to your choosing.
Short shorts are in for men this summer and these certainly show off a lot of leg, but what’s better if you’re working on a tan? This is an incredibly versatile outfit that is perfect to carry you from day to night – add a simple shirt and trainers for a chic casual look. Grab these fantastic pieces in the sale – you can get the shorts here and the cap here.
Shirt and Shorts
When you’re out and about on a hot day, what’s better than a nice light shirt and comfortable shorts to keep you feeling comfortable, refreshed and able to fully enjoy your day? Summer is definitely the time for loud shirts – dads all over the UK have been doing it for years with their awful Hawaiian monstrosities, but this is Brother2Brother and we would never put anything in front of you that is such an assault to the senses!
Introducing 2019’s answer to the loud tropical summer shirt. Ellis is wearing Polo Ralph Lauren’s Blue Tropical Shirt which is constructed from a breathable and lightweight fabric in a classic fit so it’s not too snug, not too loose. This shirt features an absolutely gorgeous design with swaying palm treats, cyan blue seas and waves, sailboats and tropical islands. It’s bright, loud and ostentatious but incredibly tasteful and pleasing to the eye. It can be achieved!
We’ve paired this shirt with these Grey Lehoen Shorts from Replay. These stretch polyester shorts allow for all-day comfort and movement while maintaining a sophisticated skinny look. The design is simple so as not to clash with the shirt, with the shorts constructed in a pale grey with R branding to the back pocket and a zip and button fly.
You’ll be absolutely buzzing to hear that some of these items are also in the sale, so make sure you grab them quick before they’re gone! You can find the shirt here and the shorts here, and don’t forget to check out the rest of our summer sale for huge discounts and amazing deals!
