Dads, your big day is just around the corner. Sunday June 21st is your day to celebrate all that you have done for the family in anyway your little heart desires. To help you make the most of the special occasion, we’ve collected our favourite trends for men to keep you looking and feeling your best.
For those who have a casual day planned; perhaps at the park for a picnic, watching sports or spending the day shopping at Yorkdale with the family, put your best foot forward with the leading trend in footwear for men. We’re loving the look of a bright white pair of trainers matched with your favourite casual shorts or rolled up chinos. If you’re the kind of Dad who likes to walk on the wild side, opt for a neon trainer to keep your ensemble looking fresh. The comfort and versatility of this look is both fashionable and functional – two things we know all Father’s love to be!
Psychedelics & Prints
Gents, when it comes to prints and patterns this summer; size does matter. We’re talking the bigger the better, the more you can fit onto one print the more you’ll be hailed as one of the most fashionable fathers on the block. If you’re Father’s Day plans include a meal out with the family, a backyard bbq with friends or a stroll around the streets of Toronto with the kids, prints are your new best friend. We’re loving the Psychedelic look of oversized florals, patterns and colours. We found lots of inspiration from retailers such as Jack and Jones, Ted Baker, and TOPMAN. Mix and match your faves to find the perfect combo for you.
Show some leg this summer with a higher hemline on those swim trunks! If you’re planning to hit the pool or beach with the family this weekend, we recommend trying a few new suits on for size. The European inspired style has become all the rage here on Canadian soil. Look for a suit that comes to about 2 inches above the knee. Add a bold print or a white pair of trainers into the ensemble and you’re undoubtedly ready to receive the “Most Fashionable Dad” award.
50 Shades of Denim
Although the sweet summer heat is beginning to kick in, we’re still seeing denim on denim on denim when it comes to one of the hottest trends of 2015. Mix shades of denim into your look and sport the Canadian Tuxedo with pride if your plans this Sunday are casual, laid back and potentially indoors. A denim shirt is a perfect wardrobe staple which can be paired with swim trunks, more denim or basically any bottom you had your heart set on. If you’re not interested in committing to a full on denim look, consider tops or bottoms with denim patchwork incorporated in. The casual touch will add personality to your outfit while allowing you to select lighter fabrics or different colours to play with.
A huge thank you to all the Fathers out there who selflessly devote time to their families every single day. You are our heros and we look forward to seeing how you celebrate this year.
