How to dress on holiday when you're over 40

How to dress on holiday when you're over 40

What to wear on holiday? It’s traditionally thought that British men are terrible at dressing on holiday – think white legs with a blue tinge, knotted hankies and socks with sandals. Thankfully, the majority of men have moved way beyond this, what with travel becoming so much easier and global warming hotting up the UK summers.

But it can still be a little tricky to dress for holidays as you get older – I don’t know but you but I prefer to show a little less flesh and find things that are closer fitting but not tight are the most flattering.

I’ve put together a little holiday guide with some suggested items for holiday looks:

What shoes to buy in summer if you don't like sandals

What shoes to buy in summer if you don't like sandals

Every summer I get asked by a number of clients what shoes I can suggest for summer to wear with shorts and no socks (or no show socks) as an alternative to sandals.

Here are some of the suggestions I've made which you may find helpful if you too, don't like getting your toes out in public in summer - or just find it easier to walk around in something that actually covers your foot :~)

Summer sale swimshorts

Whether it's Brockwell Lido or the Bahamas you're going to, take advantage of the sales to restock your swimwear drawer this summer.

Most of my clients like a medium to longer length so I've chosen a selection of those here, in colourful prints but ones I feel whisper summer sun without screaming "look at me" from the sand dunes!

Summer lovin' - Holiday dressing for men

Summer lovin' - Holiday dressing for men

If you're checking out of this country some time soon and heading off to summery climes then I've put together some looks for you.

Using many of the micro geometric prints that are around this summer as a base and mixing with muted colours, natural fabrics and retro touches, I hope you can imagine yourself wearing some of the pieces with the sand between your toes, the sun on your skin, and nothing to do but relax.
