Men's Summer Must Haves

Don't fret!, Summer is almost here and we all are just getting into the swing of things for the spring. There are a few items we think each male frug should have in their wardrobe for the 2013 summer season. Take Notes!

Colored Chinos: Experiment with color and invest in casual pair of trousers. Chinos are versatile and can be paired with just about any look.
Where to buy: Topman, Old Navy, Gap, JCPenny, Nordstrom, Forever21

Printed Short Sleeve Shirt: Printed short sleeve shirts popped on the scene in 2012 and have remained ever since. Great when paired with Chinos, denim or even a different printed bottom if you are a risk taker! Most printed shirts give you a vintage inspired look.

FYI: Botanical Printed shirts are this seasons biggest trend for Men & Women.
Where to buy: JCPenny, Topman, American Eagle, Pacsun, Nordstrom, Old Navy, Hollister

Authentic Blue Denim Jeans: Every male should have a good quality pair of denim jeans. If not then add them to your wardrobe ASAP. Don't settle for cheap quality denim. Denim should last a lifetime and they are a staple item for most male looks. You dont always have to spend an arm and a leg to get good quality.
