Guide to Summer Party Attire | Vardama

When it comes to the summer and you begin getting invites to parties located along the pool or beach side that subconsciously tells you to wear shorts and a polo, this go-to attire says ‘you’re not the life of the party and probably just boring’. It’s time to look at more of an innovative, tasteful and elegant solution that instead says ‘this man looks interesting’. Typically, most men wouldn’t choose the long sleeve dress shirt in 90-degree plus weather, but if you look at the fabrics used in a dress shirt such as Vardama’s 100% breathable cotton, plus the functionality of no sweat stains and water repellency; you become most comfortable with your sleeves rolled up below the elbow and become the life of the party since not only are you the nonstandard gentlemen, but you’re wearing a conversation piece.

Recommended to go with light colors since dark colors may absorb the heat and with a French placket for the relaxed look such as Park Ave, Lafayette, Jones St, or Lenox and a matched pair of light colored pants. You’re now the most fashionable and interesting gentlemen at the party!

Also, looking at the length of Vardama’s light colored dress shirts is most appropriate to wear untucked for summer parties. The rule of thumb for wearing a shirt untucked is that if you’re covering more than 50% of your backside, than the shirt is too long to be worn in that fashion. So, unlike traditional dress shirts, Vardama’s length is most modern and appropriate to be worn untucked for such events, but not short enough that when worn tucked in, it comes out with a little movement.

Remembering that a gentleman always presents himself as clean and free of stains (something not to worry about with Equa-Tek™), Vardama shirts show no sweat patches and are naturally breathable but still be sure to use antiperspirant deodorant at these hot summer party events in case of excess perspiration!
