Yes it’s September – the most depressing month of the year, some might say. And yes, although hard to believe given today’s downpour, a few days ago it did hit 30 degrees. The last of the summer sun has just about passed and autumn weather is brewing. It’s that in-between time of year – the autumn rain has begun but the temperature is still mild enough to be in lightweight clothing. This 'neither-here-nor-there' transformation period poses the same wardrobe dilemma year after year - do we wear out our summer lightweights until no end or do we prematurely get out the winter woolies?
Thank goodness for resort collections. It’s the warm-summer garments and the light-winter pieces all mixed together to create the perfect outfit for weather like today. It’s for those four-seasons-in-a-day, days. On today’s Menswear Monday we’re inspired by this shoot for August Man Magazine, starring Lucas Garcez. Photographed by Skye Tan, and Styled by Ben Chin, shot in the tropical Island of Mauritius. Let this help you embrace resort styling, and be dressed for whatever the typical British day may bring you.
