What a scorcher this weekend was! Sunny weather makes for happy people, and also the hilarious sight of your lobster pink colleagues coming into the office on Monday morning after having indulged in a little too much ‘tanning.’ What more can you ask for?! With record temperatures all over Europe, the heat wave looks to continue over the next few weeks, so if you haven’t already, now is absolutely the time to stock up on those summer fashion essentials. Whether you’ll be spending July at home or you’re lucky enough to be jetting off on your holidays, there are some things you just can’t go without! But we like to make things easy for our valued customers here at Brother2Brother, so we’ve compiled our top 6 July essentials that are perfect for sun worshipping, keeping cool and, most importantly, staying on trend this summer.
Givenchy – Yellow/Black Print Swim Shorts
All too often, men’s swimwear falls into the trap of being yawn-inducingly boring. After all, if you’re just going to lay around by the pool and have an occasional dip, why should swim shorts look like anything special? For the fashion forward this is, of course, heresy – at every opportunity, if you can rock something stylish, why would you choose not to? Enter Givenchy, with what could quite possibly be the hottest pair of swim shorts available this summer. Constructed from a fast-drying fabric in electric yellow with an all over black Givenchy logo print, these shorts are reminiscent of old comic books, catching the eye with a gigantic KAPOW! Unique, eye-catching and luxurious, these shorts are exclusively available in our Reading store, so if you’re (understandably) itching to get your hands on them, details are below!
Versace Jeans Couture – Black/Gold Linea Heritage Print Waist Bag
With festival season in full swing, aside from copious amounts of girls plastered in glitter, you’re sure to see a lot of bum bags. A festival essential, they’re the perfect accessory to keep your valuables close and safe, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the experience without the worry! Brand new from Versace Jeans Couture’s pre-fall 2019 line, this bag features the brand’s iconic gold heritage print on a contrasting black background, completed with a logo plate with raised gold branding. With its combination of high fashion luxury and practical design, this bag is a must-have!
Valentino – Mirrored VLTN Frameless Sunglasses
It’s the worst feeling in the world when you go out for the day in the bright sunlight and you forget your sunglasses. You know you’re in for a day full of squinting and headaches and you’ll inevitably wish you weren’t as much of a forgetful idiot. We think the solution is getting yourself a pair of sunglasses you won’t want to leave the house without. Brand new for summer 2019 from Valentino, these striking frameless sunglasses feature rockstud detailing and reflective branding on the lenses and are sure to get you so many compliments that you’ll never want to take them off. Want to make an impression this summer? Buy these sunglasses. It’s that simple!
DSquared2 – Black Dean & Dan Sliders
You wouldn’t think that a brand created by a pair of Canadians would be rushing to create fashion-forward designer pool slides. But, thankfully, we live in that very reality, and despite their wintery homeland, DSquared2 has got you covered when it comes to your summer footwear in 2019! Designed in black with the red, white and orange Dean & Dan branding to the strap, these slides are stylish, comfortable and the ideal last minute purchase for that sunny summer holiday!
Fresh Ego Kid – Yellow/White Mesh Trucker Cap
Some men like sunglasses, some men like hats. Rarely both, unless you’re making a poor attempt at disguising your identity, and we all know that is rarely successful! If you can never find a pair of sunnies that suits, keep the sun out of your eyes with this bright yellow trucker cap from Fresh Ego Kid. The bright white and yellow design will reflect heat and help keep your head cool, and the design is finished off with the brand’s iconic FEK heritage logo embroidered to the front. Bonus – you’ll be easy to spot in crowds! Perfect for festivals.
Kenzo – Urban Slim Fit Shirt
For some, summer brings an endless roster of social events, and with that comes the challenge of dressing to impress every time. Men’s formal wear can sometimes be a bit dull, it seems to have been the same forever – shirt, tie, jacket. Switch things up this summer with this stand out shirt brand new from Kenzo. Featuring a design that wouldn’t look out of place in an art gallery, it’s visually interesting and, most importantly, a bit different. So when every other bloke turns up in a white shirt, you’ll be glad you didn’t follow the crowd!
