Men’s Summer Must Haves: Beachwear and Accessories

Go Sleeveless {Tank Tops}

I have always wondered whether men can get away with wearing tank tops? Once upon a time, this invoked thoughts of men with big bellies wearing thin white ribbed “wife-beaters” soiled with dirt, grease stains and smeared with food smudges where hands have been wiped. These images would come to mind and I would get this unsettling feeling of disgust. Nice visual, right?

Good news. They aren’t just considered underwear anymore. Men’s tank tops have come a long way since the “wife-beater” days. I was never a fan of that name anyway. Now men’s tanks come in all kinds of fabrics, colors and styles and they have become an essential in men’s basic summer fashion.

A men’s tank can be worn in the summer with a pair of shorts, boardshorts, twill pant or jeans. As far as footwear goes, tanks can work well with flip flops, boat shoes and sneakers.

Tank tops made from cotton or cotton blends are preferred most over other types but do not count jersey out. This is most likely due to the feel of the material. Nothing is better than a super soft, casual tank that feels barely there.

Retro Striped Tank

Hurley Mooney Pocket Tank

As far as construction is concerned, tank tops are designed either like a common sleeveless shirt, where the armhole is more “fitted”, or can be styled having a low and open hole where the armpit and parts of the torso can be seen.  I am seeing more of a square, straight cut fit trending as well.  This means that men’s tanks are not going to be as fitted versus an athletic tank, which is ment for working out.

Fox Enterprize Jersey Tank

Hurley Rigged Tank

Key styles that are trending this summer are horizontal, tonal, and wide stripes .You will also see allot of Aztec prints, bright colors, graphic logos and retro designs.

NEFF Ripper Tank

White Stripe Retro Tank

Make no mistake about it.  Men’s tank tops are basic versatile essentials. Plus, wearing them is an amazing way of cooling down from summer’s heat when you’re out enjoying the weather.

Guys, you can be stylish this Cinco de Mayo weekend by pairing a tank with a pair of shorts, flip flops, your favorite pair of sunglasses and add a little extra “Joe Cool” to your look with a hat.

You’ve worn them under your wovens and tees for so long, now just wear them on their own! With brands like Hurley, Billabong, Fox and Neff coming out with some rad tank styles this summer, I can promise that you can’t go wrong! Go ahead and stop by any of your local Glik’s store locations or check us out online at gliks.com for any of your summer essentials.
