How to Buy your Vacation Clothes When Being a Working Dad

Buying clothes and having a general awareness of fashion is something that many men used to shy away from, but that is no longer the case. Men have become increasingly fashion conscious and are on the lookout for those trends that they can incorporate into their own wardrobe.

Fashion has evolved over time, and men’s clothes are no exception. Take hats, for instance. Until the 1960s, a hat was an essential item in almost any man’s wardrobe, and not wearing any type of headwear was largely frowned upon. A hat is no longer a requirement. Nor for that matter is a suit; societal mores have relaxed, and casual wear has become more acceptable, even in the workplace. Of course, a suit is still a requirement for most men for certain occasions, but pairing a formal jacket and trousers with a colorful and stylish shirt and tie is one way of keeping pace with the latest trends. It is not always easy predicting the turns that fashion will take next, but one thing that the fashion conscious can be sure of is that clothes will continue to be designed with a view to allowing buyers to express themselves in a way that is individual to their tastes and preferences.

A key area of consideration for a man is a vacation wardrobe. Being a working dad means not always having the time to keep up with the latest fashion trends for men; however, having what it takes to create outfits for a summer vacation is not all that difficult. Among the key trends to keep note of are sports and urban fashion wear.

In recent years, the sports and urban fashion wear categories have started to blend together to create some interesting looks. With sports and urban wear, the emphasis should be on comfort, and a retailer such as Tommie Copper will have several types of options for customers looking to create an outfit that does not compromise on either style or comfort. To use one example of the type of outfit that a working dad can create using sports and urban fashion wear trends, take a top worn with jeans. The current trend for jeans in a light-blue to mid-blue shade is perfect for vacation wear, as is the trend for short-sleeved shirts with a print. Short-sleeved shirts have become a summertime staple in a man’s wardrobe, but the addition of printed styles adds a dash of color. What better way than to finish such an outfit off than with a pair of support underwear for that extra layer of comfort? The great thing about support underwear is that they aid muscle and joint support yet at the same time provide comfort from the use of soft, breathable material. Highly rated compression socks, available in various styles, add an extra layer of support to a sports or urban wear outfit and offer relief from everyday fatigue – something worth bearing in mind on a family vacation.

Taking the latest fashion trends into account when creating a wardrobe does not mean having to compromise on comfort. Being comfortable in clothes is just as important as looking good.
