Chic finds: Summer essentials for guys

Why should girls have all the fun, right? With the change of season, it’s time for guys to update their wardrobes too. We dig out the bare summer essentials for the boys:

White shirt

Simple and summery, can be worn casually or to work. White linens are excellent for the terribly hot Indian summer.

Shorts/ Bermudas

In neutral shades or bright, plain or printed, nothing beats a pair of comfy shorts and bermudas to lounge around in.

Bonus: Bright colours

If women can wear bold pop colours, why can’t men? And hey, they need not look like Govinda. 😛
