Flares, tulle and Ziggy Stardust, oh my (Picture: Getty)

It feels like only yesterday we were pulling on our 60s A line mini skirts and faux fur coats. Oh yeah, that because it was.

But now we reached 2015, we casting our minds forward, wondering what we be wearing as soon as the weather gets a little milder, what we do with ALL that faux fur.

Of course, we know by now that there are no new trends anymore. Just repackaged, glossier versions of ones we seen many, many times before.

And this spring is really no exception. Welcome to the 52nd summer of love.

Faux fur gives way to suede for spring. Swathes of suede were spotted across catwalks at Derek Lam, Burberry and Gucci, in both traditional tan and pastels. For the brave, there are suede trenches, flares and shift dresses. For those looking for more breathable attire, there the suede maxi skirt, knee high boots, or duffle bag.

Principally, we talking flares. The bell bottom is back. Do not be afraid the high waist and flared hems are flattering on the figure. There even a cropped version this time round. The flare was seen strutting its funky stuff at Louis Vuitton, Celine andSonia Rykiel. Expect these and the wide leg trouser generally to flood the high street come February/March.

Usually the spring/summer catwalks are a dream of frothy florals and pastels, and while this season has its fair share of both, it also has a darker side. Mostly thanks to Tom Ford whose models slinked down the catwalk in evening dresses incorporating nipple pasties, sheer panels and leather bandeau tops.

Hedi Slimane also channelled the hot rock groupie at Saint Laurent, with key pieces including low cut lurex tops and jumpsuits, leather crop tops and sheer blouses. It going to be a long, hot summer.

We give you the embellished boiler suit (Picture: Getty)

Yes, we know, denim always in fashion. But, for SS15, it was re imagined in Burberry fitted cropped jackets with PVC collars, Celine oversized culottes, Gucci cow gal shirt dresses, embellished boiler suits at Sonia Rykiel and patchwork jeans a la Hilfiger.

polo tops Suit up for summer with these fashion tips for men

Summer pieces for men are versatile, meaning the pieces can easily be mixed and matched now and on into fall. The model wears a look from RW presents the perfect time to lighten up in every sense of the word and men’s fashion is no exception.

Stiff blazers and wool trousers give way to soft linens, comfy chinos and even, when appropriate, shorts! Basically, the season’s hottest pieces for men are ones that are more than willing to work overtime during office hours and on into the weekend.

“What’s essential this summer is to opt for versatile pieces that you can wear both on and off duty,” says John Michael Minon, marketing content specialist for Canadian retailer RW the key to a stylish summer isn’t about always adopting the latest trends, but to be cool and comfortable with the basics when the thermostat hits the 30s.”

Men who are looking to boost their summer thread count without appearing too casual should consider natural fibres such as cotton their best fashion allies during the hot months ahead, according to Minon.

“If you have to wear a suit to work, a cotton one is an absolute essential,” Minon says. “It’s lightweight and breathable so you won’t sweat in it when the temperatures and your stress levels go up.”

When it comes to summer textiles, breathability is key. And there is nothing more airy than linen. The natural textile, which is derived from the flax plant, is a must try in hot weather thanks to its quick drying properties.

“Linen will be your best ally to beat the heat,” Minon says. “Nowadays, you can find it in everything, from formal wear like blazers and trousers, to weekend essentials like shorts and shirts.”

Another option that’s sure to work in the office for those who don’t want to go all in on a full suit is a cool pair of chinos.

“Chinos are the most versatile pair of pants a man can own,” Minon says. “If your work dress code permits, wear it with a polo and top it off with a sharp blazer for a polished, yet cool look.”

As for colours, it’s all about choosing something that pops, while also pairing well with the existing hues hanging in your closet at home.

“Rely on the foundation colours like camel, blue, white and grey to build your summer wardrobe because they go seamlessly with more trendy colours of the season like red, green, olive and orange that will make your outfit pop,” Minon says.

For the man who’s aiming to earn a few extra high fashion marks, Minon suggests looking to Europe as per usual for solid style suggestions that will make them stand out on the streets at home.

“The hottest trend in Europe right now is wearing a suit with white sneakers and a T shirt,” he says. “Too casual for you? Switch out the T shirt for a crisp shirt keep the sneakers and you’re good to go.”Let’s face it: men’s fashion trends don’t change at the same speed as women’s. And the more classic appeal of men’s style options means you don’t have to do a complete closet overhaul each season in order to step out in style.

Trevor Coult from the Woodbridge area was awarded a Military Cross for risking his life to protect comrades in Iraq and fought off suicide bombers during his time with the armed forces over nearly 20 years.

But the former Colour Sergeant suffers from PTSD, and as part of a fresh campaign by Veterans in Action, aims to help raise awareness and money for those suffering from the condition.

If you look at the Help For Heroes posters it has got people like a guy with a Union Jack prosthetic leg, and that grabs peoples attention, he said.

But if you see people with PTSD, people would say there is nothing wrong with them.

PTSD cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with positive people, medication and being outside.

He added: A lot of veterans dont talk about that stuff with civilians but they will connect with each other,

thats why they do lots of support groups and thats why we are walking.

This morning, the ex Royal Irish Regiment man set off on an eight mile Walk 4 PTSD with friends and colleagues from Hadleigh as part of the new Walk A Mile In My Shoes campaign.

The ice bucket style challenge urges people to tag their friends on social media and challenge them to walk a mile, donating 3 to VIA.

Joining the walk was Paul Tug Hartley, a patron of the cause who bravely refused to leave injured colleagues in a minefield in Afghanistan in 2006, helping them to safety.

Tugs plight was the inspiration for the 2014 film Kajaki, with the Hereford based veteran challenging some of the films stars including Mark Stanley and Scott Kyle as part of the campaign.

After making the four hour trip to Hadleigh for the walk, Tug said: When I left the military with PTSD there was no help and support.

KLUTZY townie visits rural smallholding on a wet morning and discovers he’s brought only one wellie. (Well, son’s boots are also in the bag . . . 10 sizes too small.)

I might put that in my talk, smiles smallholder Peter Webb, who’s developed a useful sideline nothing too big, mind in after dinner speeches and entertaining presentations to WIs, Rotary clubs and the like.

Mind you, it could be worse for someone like me who’s a wuss with needles and eager to give them a wide berth. I could have arrived at the same time as district nurses intent on administering anti flu jabs. As the keepers of more than 50 poultry, the Webbs are registered with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Defra arranged for all poultry keepers to be given the injections by primary care trusts.

The aim is to stop them getting ordinary human ‘flu, explains Peter. If they did, and also had the misfortune to catch bird ‘flu from infected poultry, there’s a risk the two viruses could mix and create a hybrid that could spread rapidly among the human population.

Peter’s feeling the effects of his jab, but isn’t moaning. Far from it. There’s so much criticism about Defra, but it has done a good job, he says. At the grass roots level it’s working.

I’m really here, in slightly muddy shoes, to learn about Peter’s interest in restoring old farm wagons a hobby that comes into its own on rainy days like these, when time spent in the workshop is much more productive than taking a tractor out on the field and inadvertently carving ruts into the earth.

But it’s impossible not to set that in the context of the couple’s chosen lifestyle. The Webbs have been self sufficiency devotees for about 35 years. They lived in a nice road in Rochford, near Southend, and their garden was dug over: Beanpoles in the front garden and geese in the back. Then we had the allotments, just like Tom Good and we had the rich neighbours!

They hankered after something more; and the dream came true about 14 years ago when they spent every last penny on a property with land: a former mink farm near Tiptree that had lain derelict for years. The business had collapsed after animal rights protesters set the mammals free one night.

Today, it’s a neat and productive smallholding of six and a half acres. There are Jacob sheep and geese, bantam chickens, guinea fowl, peahens and turkeys. A load of pigs has just gone. There are 60 fruit trees and, in the past, they’ve grown straw for thatching.

Peter, a former health and safety inspector, has no regrets. I’ve never been so poor financially; I’ve never been so contented. We earn just enough money now to survive and we’re contented in our lifestyle. I used to think that the more money you had, the happier you were, but it’s not true, actually. As long as you’ve got enough . . .

Today, satisfaction is measured by things like getting your first goose egg.

In his former existence and at one time he was a general manager with 200 staff there was a lot of pressure; a lot of legal issues, like witness statements. It was a job I enjoyed initially, but the rules and regulations . . . especially since we joined Europe, so many have come quickly. And so many conflict. It got to stage where you could never switch off.

Fifty nine now, he was in his mid 40s when he and Mary opted to make the break.

This place cost us every penny we had. Every penny. We had to sell every possession we had. When we moved here, our friends came over and saw the dereliction. Nothing had happened here for eight years. I got 1,
scu water polo Suffolk and Essex Lifestyle News
000 sheets of asbestos off the mink sheds. There were four sheds, each 100 yards long.

Our friends just said to us ‘What the hell have you done?’ You think ‘Crikey. I’ve not got a penny in the bank and we’ve got this dump . . .’ But it was a goal; something we wanted to do. A dream.

We came here because we wanted to live the life fully. And it is a way of life. It’s seven days a week; 365 days a year.

The year before last, at 11pm and with rain threatening, there were 500 bales of hay to transport from the field and into storage. They couldn’t wait. It was really tiring and my hands wouldn’t straighten out for a week ‘cos I’m getting old, laughs Peter.

We haven’t had a holiday for about 13 years now, but what we do is go to the country shows: about 14 a year the Tendring Show, the Suffolk Show, Barleylands (the Essex Country Show, at Billericay) and we take a wagon with us, says Peter.

Again, he’s not complaining. I know one thing: you only live once.

My father died at 72. He was in hospital a perfectly fit, healthy man in every other way, but he had a heart attack. He was lying there, and he never had the strength to get out of bed; and he said ‘I wish I’d done this. I wish I’d done that; and when I get out of the hospital I’m going to do that.’

I knew he was never going to come out. I said to Mary ‘Look; we’ve got to do what we want to do, while we can, because I don’t want to be lying in a hospital bed, in years to come, wishing I’d done this.

He recognises he’s been lucky to have a wife who shares his dream. A stage whisper: She’s a brick. Don’t tell her!

There’s no household computer to go wrong. Been there. Mary will do the accounts in a little book: money coming in in one column; money going out in another. Simple.

Their workhorse and social transport is a G reg Land Rover, and their most modern tractor dates from 1980. Luckily their son is a mechanic with the skills to keep the vehicles running. And, in any case, Peter and Mary are not the type to dream of lying on a Spanish beach; they prefer to keep busy.

The farmers that surround me here, in many ways they’re envious. They might have just paid 150,000 for a combine and they’re driving it and it’s air conditioned and has sat nav and everything and I’m in my 50 year old Ferguson tractor, in the open air, turning my hay. They can see how it used to be.

They’re in their combine, thinking about yield: the price of corn on the world market, exchange rates . . . and I’m thinking ‘Is it going to rain? Is that a sparrow?’ Farmers now have to be serious businessmen.

As he points out the three bird boxes now in place around the smallholding, which have already hosted barn owls and kestrels, it’s clear Peter feels he made the right choices.

His latest box took a whole day to make, but I enjoyed every minute of it. There was nobody looking over me, saying ‘Can you do it quicker? When you’ve done that, what else are you going to do?’

I enjoyed every minute of making it, every minute of putting it up there, and if we get some owls in it I’ll be over the moon. That’s what I mean by contentment. We’ve got this limited time on earth,

black and red polo shirt Sudden spike in prison violence ‘a problem right across the country’

Inmate Dwayne Wright, watching television with his feet up, is suddenly sucker punched from behind by another inmate. A video of the attack shows him falling to the floor, his shoes flying off, as he tries to cover his face from a series of head shots.

His attacker, Charles Wallace, finishes with six soccer kicks to the 34 year old Wright’s head, and calmly resumes pacing and chatting with another inmate.

Some prison advocates and lawyers say such violence is the new normal: Prisons that installed video technology in hopes it would decrease violence find they now instead often serve to document a disturbing long term rise in beatings that can cause fatalities, brain injuries and life long trauma.

The last decade has seen a steady surge in prison beatings, with annual inmate on inmate assault in federal prisons growing 93 per cent from 301 a year in 2006 7 to 581 in 2014 15, according to Ivan Zinger, director of the federal Correctional Investigator’s office, using Correctional Services Canada data.

Provinces, who are responsible for prisoners sentenced to less than two years in jail, report similar sudden rises.

In British Columbia, the Solicitor General’s office says assaults and attempted assaults have gone from about 880 in 2011, to about 1,200 last year, up by about a third with a spike in the first six months of this year.

“It is a reflection of higher inmate counts, the criminal histories of those in custody, and the growing number of inmates with addiction and mental health issues,” writes spokeswoman Kate Trotter in an email.

In Ontario last year there were 2,762 inmate on inmate assaults, up 13 per cent from the number of assaults a decade earlier though the figures were even higher between 2011 and 2013.

In Nova Scotia, total inmate on inmate assaults were up from 196 two years ago to 287 so far this year, a 46 per cent increase.

In Alberta, the number of annual assaults doubled from 263 in 2007 to current levels of 528.

The assaults range from severe beatings to spitting, with the majority being less severe forms of contact.

“This clearly is a problem right across the country,” said John Peach, executive director of the John Howard Society of Nova Scotia. Prison, he says “was never intended to be an informal network to hand out its own punishment.”

Tonia Grace, a Abbotsford lawyer who frequently represents inmates in British Columbia, says the potential cost to the governments for legal liability across Canada runs into “the millions” of dollars for the most serious cases, as courts have established prisons bear a responsibility for ensuring inmates’ safety.

Grace currently has “at least 15 open files” of prison beatings where inmates are suing the province.

She is currently representing Daniel Cunningham who alleges he was severely beaten for five hours last year by other inmates in the Surrey pre trial jail in June after being transferred into an area that housed members of the Red Scorpion gang.

The lawsuit says the guards must have known what was going on as Cunningham screamed for help and others on the unit egged on his unidentified attackers. The province is denying that allegation and says in a statement of defence Cunningham requested the transfer and voluntarily broke rules when he entered the gang members’ cell. He says an attack by other inmates last year nearly detached his eyelid and left him with bloody head injuries.

A judge who sentenced one of Deguire’s attackers questioned whether it was time for an inquiry into provincial institutions.

“There have been complaints for years about the state of our institutions,” said Justice Peter Wright. “This is far worse.

Wallace, convicted on Nov. 29 of the assault in Dartmouth provincial court, had been transferred into the jail’s West 3 unit hours earlier, even though an online system showed he posed a danger to Wright as an “incompatible,” and shouldn’t have been near him on Nov. 9, 2015.

Wallace, 40, had been serving time for drug possession. Wright had been incarcerated for two months for theft and breaches of release conditions.

After the beating, Wright was eventually treated with eye packs and ibuprofen for the swelling and bruising on his face, and moved off the unit and released weeks after the incident.

The court heard testimony of how a computer system that was supposed to keep the men apart simply didn’t “link,” and made no warning of the danger Wallace posed.

Sean Kelly, the province’s director of corrections, says until late last year the computer system had problems making two way links between incompatible prisoners. He says it has been improved, but is still being worked on.

“We’re looking at making further changes to make sure there’s no problems in that area again,” he said in an interview, adding that it’s not uncommon for an inmate to have anywhere from six to 40 other inmates with whom they’re considered incompatible.

yellow polo hat Successful Hornet grid coach going home to Western Pa

HAMILTON After spending the last six seasons resurrecting Hamilton High West’s football program, Keith Hartbauer has decided to return to his football roots.

The second winningest coach in the history of Hornet football, Hartbauer will return to the western Pennsylvania where he grew up to become head coach at Peters Township High in McMurray, Pa.

Hartbauer coached Hamilton for seven years, posting winning records the last six as the Hornets won six straight CVC titles and got to the Central Jersey III playoffs each time.

Although most of his staff and some administrators knew the move was coming Hartbauer did not want to discuss his decision until meeting with his players.

“Sometimes you don’t realize the impact you have on kids until a moment like this,” said Hartbauer, who grew up in Somerset, Pa. (a Pittsburgh area suburb) where he quarterbacked the football team. His parents now live in McMurray, five minutes from his future job.

Peters, a Class 4 A school that competes in the WPIAL, plays in a 15,000 seat astroturf stadium with lights. It had 32 applicants for the coaching position, with Hartbauer and ex Jets center Jim Sweeney the finalists.

“When I’d go home to visit my family I’d pass the school (Peters High) and jokingly told my dad if the coaching job ever opened I wanted to apply. I happened to be in the right spot at the right time.

“All our family is back there that was the deciding factor,” said Hartbauer, whose wife Kelly also grew up in western Pennsylvania. “Now our parents can see the grandchildren (Kory, Kari, Kaitlin and Kylie) every day, not a few times a year.

Hartbauer will teach health and physical education at his new school, the same courses he has taught the past four years.

“The past seven years here have been some of the greatest years of my life,
polo logo shorts Successful Hornet grid coach going home to Western Pa
that’s why it’s so hard to leave,” he said.

“We’re losing a good man. We have big shoes to fill,” principal Dave McWilliam said.

“We’re hoping to have a lot of top quality applicants. Our kids and community deserve to have a very good football program continue,” said McWilliam, who hopes to interview applicants within the next month and have a new coach “on board soon.”

Hamilton’s top assistant Steve Gazdek won’t be a candidate for the job since he is the athletic director. One potential applicant could be McCorristin coach Bob Harris, a former Hamilton Hall of Fame football player.

“The foundation is set. The program can continue to win,” said Hartbauer. With seven starters on defense and six on offense returning from a team that shared the CVC Colonial crown the Hornets will be one of the teams to beat next fall.

A 1988 graduate of Slippery Rock (Pa.) University, he came to Hamilton as athletic trainer in 1992 and became head coach when Dave Prutow left after the ’93 season. Hartbauer took over a program that had won just two of its previous 19 games.

At the time Hamilton officials were criticized for selecting a new coach with no prior head coaching experience, but within a year Hartbauer proved their bold move was the perfect one as he launched the Hornets on a run of championship seasons unmatched in school history.

In his ‘rookie’ season Hamilton went 2 7, but over the next six years averaged eight wins a year.

On the way to posting a 53 19 record Hartbauer moved into second on Hamilton’s alltime win list behind the 79 54 4 mark the late Bill McEvoy compiled in 15 year Hall of Fame career.

In addition to turning the Hornets into the CVC’s team of the ’90s, Hartbauer had 18 of his players go to college, including eight to Division I or I AA programs Tim Upshur (Purdue), Tim Selmon (Virginia Tech), Greg Mukerson (Temple), Shawn Hackett (West Virginia), Terrance Glover (Penn State), Brian White (Villanova), Detrik Watson (Fairfield) and Keith Harper (Monmouth).

Hartbauer earned Trentonian Coach of the Year honors after the 1995 and ’96 seasons, while four of his athletes won Player of the Year honors. Named Coach of the Decade in the CVC,

ralph lauren polo bear success tips for business field

Dress standards across the business sector vary widely and can often lead to confusion for students graduating and entering the field as prospective job candidates. A group of local businesses and Francis Marion University professors worked together to clear some of the confusion during a recent “Dress for Success” business seminar.

FMU professor Eric Belk said this was the first time for the event, held Thursday at Butler’s Fine Men’s Clothing and sponsored by First Reliance Bank, but he hopes to hold it each semester going forward.

“Basically the whole purpose of the event was to expose students to the three main dress types that you see in business, as well as to give students an orientation on what to expect on the all important first job interview,” Belk said. “The seminar allowed them to get hands on instruction, not only from Francis Marion professors but also from Mark Butler, the owner of Butler’s Fine Men’s Clothing.”

Belk said he has found young professionals sometimes do not meet dress code requirements but that it is often because of a lack of knowledge, not because they don’t care.

“The students were very engaging and asking a lot of questions,” Belk said. “This event really enforced what we thought, which is that students do really want to know how they should dress and what to expect in interviews so they can get a leg up on their competitors, so to speak.”

Being a business professional himself, Belk was able to offer personal advice to the 12 students who participated.

“I shared a personal antidote with students,” Belk said. “I remember a long time ago when I first wore my navy blue suit. I was so excited to wear it, and I paired it with dark brown shoes. I remember going out to an event, and someone commented to me that I didn’t want to wear dark brown shoes and a dark brown belt with a navy blue suit. I didn’t know any better. A lot of students don’t know.”

The seminar hit on several of those what not to wear business attire faux pas.

For men, those include things such as shirts and pants that are unpressed, untucked shirts, dress shirts with loud designs and shoes with wild patterns, such as alligator skin.

For women,
polo sperry shoes success tips for business field
low cut or revealing shirts, clothes with faded colors and stiletto heels are several no no’s to look out for when dressing as a business professional.

One area of professional dress that often leads to being underdressed or overdressed for an occasion is the lack of clarity on the distinctions between Business Professional, Business Casual and Business Informal.

“We indicated to the students when each type of dress was appropriate,” Belk said. “For example, if you are taking a customer to a sporting event, business informal may be accepted, but there is a certain look that you have to demonstrate.”

Each student participant was given a handbook to use during the seminar and to take home for reference later. The book contained information on each of the three business dress styles and also included instructions on tying a tie and how to be prepared for job interviews. Each student also went home with a business casual polo, provided by First Reliance Bank.

Hubert Setzler, an FMU associate professor of management; Jan Serrano, an FMU assistant professor of finance; and Barry O’Brien, dean of the FMU School of Business, also talked with students during the seminar. Shannon McGuillavary, owner of Goosie Ganders, helped plan the event.

hugo boss polo shirts for men styles for your warm

packers polo styles for your warm

Maybe the weather in our region hasn’t been brutal enough to call it a “winter escape,” but a tropical getaway this time of year still is a welcome diversion.

If you have booked a cruise or made airline reservations for a pleasure trip to a warmer destination, now’s the time to enhance your wardrobe with some fun resort wear pieces.

A key requirement for suitable travel apparel is that it is lightweight, versatile and easy to wear, says Betsy Thompson, fashion spokeswoman for Talbot’s.

Travelers also should consider their itinerary when deciding which outfits to take along. For example, if walking excursions or exercise workouts will be part of your adventure, you’ll want to bring great looking athletic wear. Today’s styles “offer comfort and freedom with a lot more polish in shape and fit than old fashioned track suits,” Thompson says. “A nice option is that they can double as a swimsuit coverup.”

Longer length Bermuda shorts provide coverage from the sun and relief from hot automobile seats or chaise lounges. They can be worn with a polo shirt or T shirt during the day and dressed up with layering pieces for evening wear.

“Who would have thought that Bermuda shorts could be worn with high heels and a suited jacket, or with golf shoes?” Thompson notes.

Bermudas also make their way into Lilly Pulitzer’s resort line, says Ted Smith, owner of Palm Place in Shadyside. Only this season, the renowned classic sportswear designer has introduced them in paisley patterns and blue and pink pineapple prints. The same paisley is fashioned into a long casual skirt and, for guys, Italian silk ties, bow ties and 19 by19 inch pocket squares, which Smith says women also will wear as scarves.

“The paisley will play back to a beautiful navy or seersucker blazer, worn with linen shorts or long pants,” he says. The pieces will transition into a high end men’s line that will be introduced by Lilly for summer.

For women, the navy based paisley creates the lining for a smart looking white trench coat that will be very strong for resort wear, he says.

Embellishments will be big news on the beach, whether it’s Lilly’s green tunic with seashell accents sewn into starfish and floral patterns, or a flower attached to the shoulder of an eggplant lightweight cashmere sweater from MaxMara , available at Linda Bucci boutique in Shadyside.

Eggplant is a hot color for resort wear, says Bucci, and it shows up in a big way in MaxMara’s empire waist knit dress with a playful bubble skirt, V neck and long sleeves.

“Anyone can wear this dress. It’s fun, it’s fashionable, it’s easy to wear,” she says.

Also at Linda Bucci’s, a navy and white grouping from Les Copains features skinny cotton jeans, walking shorts and a polka dot top.

“Polka dots are all over the place, from dresses to sportswear, even on shoes,” says Tina Hodak, creative merchandise manager for Macy’s. Dresses play a major role in the fashion picture for resort and cruise wear.

“If you haven’t worn a dress in a few years, you’re going to wear one this spring,” she says.

At JCPenney, the department store’s new resort collection is a colorful assortment of tanks and camis, shorts and capris, skirts in dots, stripes and prints, and of course, swimwear.

Cyndie Washburn Nester, JCPenney director of women’s trend, says one of the key looks is a double breasted twill peacoat by St. John’s Bay in kelly green, yellow or cornflower blue to team with a long polka dot scarf in matching shades and white pants.

“Stripes are phenomenal” in sportswear, she says, and soft blue and pale pink make up the romantic color palette for blouses with ruffles and feminine silhouettes. For a special dinner or evening on the town, gray is an important shade in suits. Tropical wools, traditionally used in men’s suitings, have trickled into the women’s market for spring.

In JCPenney’s menswear department, trend director Allyson Kume says the preppy trend continues “with a seaside influence” featuring a navy or black blazer worn with classic bright or pastel shirts, and jeans or khakis. Sailor stripe knits also make the resort scene, as does a white dress shirt worn with rolled up sleeves and linen pants or cargo shorts, she says. Sports shirts are either button front tropical prints or tone on tone textures with a silky drape.

Cotton and silk blend sweaters, cotton blazers in pigment dyed colors and rugby and updated striped polos are big for the resort season, according to Paul Doerr, owner of Traditions of Oakmont, a contemporary menswear store.

If there’s one garment a man should add to his wardrobe for vacation, it’s a soft, two or three buttoned, unconstructed jacket, he says.

“It looks like a sports coat, but it’s really more of a casual outerwear piece. You can throw it over a long sleeve woven shirt or polo.”

For daywear, cargo shorts in khaki “and every color of the rainbow,” in addition to madras and plaid, are very popular for guys, Doerr says.

Remember to pack a lightweight sweater and keep it in your carry on case. Temperatures can vary in airplanes and air conditioned hotels and restaurants.

Choose the “must have” accessory for vacation an oversized white leather handbag, perfect for storing travel documents, essential carry on items and even a few souvenirs.

Search for Bermuda shorts and capris which are still fashionable, although this season’s styles feature slimmer silhouettes.

Say no to guys wearing rubber flip flops to dinner, but leather flip flops or sandals are fine. They’re versatile and comfortable and easy to throw in a suitcase.

Consider other options for men’s board shorts. They aren’t only meant to be used as swim trunks. They’re also acceptable worn as casual wear during the day instead of cargo shorts.
