The month of January marks the return of the tennis circuit and the start of the Australian Open. With all eyes on Melbourne right now, there’s no hotter trend than tennis. Fashion from the grandstand is quickly translating to attire suitable for any occasion and it’s not hard to see why.
We haven’t seen this kind of renaissance in white sneakers since Dunlop Volleys were a staple in every man’s closet. Now sporting brands are opting to transform the traditional white tennis shoe into an everyday option suitable for a brunch date or a night out on the town.
In searing hot weather, you need to make sure that while keeping your attire classy, you’re dressed appropriately for the conditions. To make sure she’s always looking, tailor your shorts so they fit well – we recommend just above the knees – too high and they’ll look ridiculous, too low and they’ll get mistaken for cargo shorts. Country Road have teamed up with the Australian Open as the official choice of kit for the first grand slam of the year. They also have you covered in the shorts department and we’re absolutely digging these Garment Dye shorts.
Linen Shirts are not only a favourite of the Men’s Health team but a must have staple for every wardrobe. Whether you’re heading to brunch with the girlfriend’s family, having beers by the beach or on a boat, this button-up has you covered. When you do choose to invest in linen, be sure that you test the heaviness of the product when you consider the outfit. A light linen will breathe far better when temperatures are rising on centre court.
For greater breathability, pair linen with a white shirt, opening up the buttons. This will also give you a great stylish look that will make your outfit look seamless from head to toe.
Have RayBans ever gone out of style? Nope. But the flavour of the month is the classic John Lennon style frame. We love this accessory because it says you don’t care but the high-end brand name suggests you’re all about class.
