8 ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR SUMMER BREAK
THIS SEASON'S SUMMER GETAWAY MUST-HAVES FOR MEN
Before you book your next summer getaway be sure you’ve picked up some of the below suggested travel essentials for men. Whether it’s designer sunglasses and swim shorts or sun protection and shampoo, we’ve listed our top 7 essentials of the season. Let us know if we’ve missed any in the comments section below.
Orlebar Brown Beach Shorts
Gone are the days of Speedos and three-quarter length swim shorts. Chances are, last summer's are looking rather tatty from sea salt and chlorine. Don’t be afraid to get buy a standout option such as these by Orlebar Brown. The swimwear label have a great range of photographic print swim shorts with a tailored look that won’t go unnoticed both on and off the beach.
Kirk Originals Eyewear
To keep the sun rays out (and to spy on others at the beach) you’ll need a killer pair of sunglasses. Our favourites right now are the notorious range by Kirk Originals with mirrored lenses that look great under the sun and transparent frames for a modern and fresh beach look.
Kurt Geiger leather Sandals
If you’ll be spending a lot of time strolling in the heat, the best footwear choice is certainly sandals to keep your feet cool and sweat free. These Kurt Geiger leather sandals have thick wide straps and a Roman feel. Despite some men thinking sandals are for women these are masculine and sturdy for those long summer walks. You can dress them up with tailored shorts or dress them down with your Orlebar Brown swim shorts.
No matter what skin tone you have and whether you burn easily or not, you should always apply SPF when exposed to the sun to prevent any skin damage. Biotherm has an SPF of 30 with anti-oxidant action designed for the active type, so also works with extreme water sports.
Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
If the name and the colour of this bottle doesn’t say enough for a summer scent then need we say more? Tom Ford is forever creating killer scents for men. Inspired by sparkling blue waters, cool breezes and foliage from the Italian Riviera this scent is citrusy with neroli and bergamot, so even if you’re not vacating in Portofino it will certainly smell like you are.
Maybe it’s a camera to take photos of that sunset over the sea or of a lizard while out exploring. If holiday photography isn't your thing, maybe you’ll want a tablet or Kindle while at the pool, or if you’re a music lover, take a set of speakers to create a party vibe with friends.
Kevin Murphy Heat Protecting Shampoo
With the dry sun and salty water of the sea our hair can begin to feel like hay. You need to protect it well and use the right products so it still looks great once the sun goes down. This shampoo label isn’t just for the ladies, men can also use it so add a little each day to lock in and restore any lost moisture.
Samsonite Litecube Suitcase
You’ll need a good strong case to store all your holiday essentials in, and with some strict baggage policies on some airlines you’ll want something extra light and easy to get around with. Samsonite’s Litecube case is made from their Curv material with leather trimming so it’s both durable and lightweight at the same time.
