We had a storm here yesterday afternoon. Today is just as hot and still. People were saying, it’s the first storm of the season, but then it slacked off a little and was nothing more than a brief stint of heavy rain. Surprisingly for a region that floods so often, we need the rain. Grass is crunchy below your feet and cars {mine especially} are covered in dust. We needed the rain.

The point of this?

Well Spring is here in force. Beach days are making a big come back. I find myself reaching more and more often for light dresses and casual comfort. I have a go to style for summer in Queensland. For the last few years it has been loose tops, maxi skirts and dresses. It never really was about colour. This year it certainly is. Pastels and neon are walking hand in hand. The colours and the cuts are made for summer comfort.

But the other day I was wondering if there was a style for summer for MEN? My Hubby he likes to wear hand me down polos and casual shorts. All the time. Plus boardies for the beach and jeans if the dress code requires. So I’m not sure if I would have much luck getting him to wear a summer style for men, but I’m curious.

Does your man have style?

Does it change with the seasons or is he always stylish?

I have no idea what bought these questions on.

I think the heat is frying my brain.

It’s out of practice.

Thank goodness I don’t live further north. Hats off to those people.

I’d melt.

    My hubby has no style, and wears the same old things time and time again…. occasionally I will have a shopping splurge with him and find some cool clothes :), but I love him anyway 🙂

    • Ditto. I’m allowed to buy items, some he won’t wear, some he does. And I love him anyways.

    My husband has a style, it’s black jeans and heavy metal band tshirts 24/7 rain, hail or shine!

  • Nahhh mine doesn’t really. His go to is polo shirts or short sleeve button through shirt and cargo shorts. He has had more style in the past, and he’ll likely have it again in the future, I know he wants too. He is rather keen on the old vintage/retro bowling shirt styling of things. You know of course I don’t mind a bit of vintage fashion, and I will only be too happy to assist him lol.

    Hmm if style includes black shirts with motorcycle images and words across them, then yes he has style in spades.

    I’ve never tried to change him though. I would HATE for him to start telling me what HE thinks I should be wearing, so I leave his wardrobe up to him to decide what to wear. He isn’t into clothes, bit like myself to be honest, so as long as we’re comfy, we’re happy. Simple folk us, simple LOL

    • I’m the same. He’s ok with me choosing stuff for special occasions and buying new items. But I would never dare touch the remainder of the drawer of shirts. Throw something out and he may lock me out of the house. haha.

    Men-> summer style-> baggy shorts and tees instead of baggy pants and shirts. And the daily chair slouch starts earlier because it’s too damn hot to do anything else.
    Is that Kel looking cute in sunnies?

    • That is Kel looking all cute in sunnies. He’s a bit of alright, yes? Haha.

    Men can have style.
    I go from wearing alot of dress shorts, short jeans & jeans with polo (sometimes jumpers) and shoes
    to
    board shorts, singlets, pluggers (thongs), hats, lighter shirts (t-shirts)

    There’s something not right about wearing boardies in winter…Who are you kidding about going for a swim…???
    Summer (in QLD) i would swim every day if (when) i had/get a pool.

    • You certainly have a look, that’s for sure. You wouldn’t be able to beat that into Hubby by any chance, yeah? Haha.

      I can’t wait until you get a pool. You’ll never get rid of me. I’ll be all like, hi, just popped by with my beach bag full of crap for a visit..! 😛
