The title says it all, nothing screams ‘summer in style’ with a crisp white sneaker. One of the most flexible item that a man can have in his wardrobe, pair it with  jeans or shorts. Elevate your sneaker game this season.

  1. Your trusty sunnies

You know what they say, nothing beats the true and tested magic of sunglasses. Not only does it protect your eyes from the direct exposure to our lovely sun it also balances out your facial features to achieve that ‘magic beauty symmetrical’ look that we’re all aiming for.

  1. Be adventurous and wear that floral shirt

Summer is all about finding your adventure, go and wear that floral shirt. After all style is all about self-expression. A floral shirt  when worn stylishly exhibits your confidence. When wearing a floral print keep the rest of the look toned down so you can be the most dashing Manileño in town.
