Summer vacations! The most liberating time of the year!
Free-spirited and careless mood enriched with rebellious moments, while soaking up the sun, far from the stressful everyday routine. During summer vacations most of us feel the urge to cut off from the life in the city and adopt a more relaxed and non-conformistic look.
Vibrant colors, daring combinations, jewels, lightweight fabrics… On summer vacations everything is acceptable, as long as it makes you feel liberated!
The Floral Shirt
Colorful, daring and distinctive. The floral shirt proudly reflects that a little blooming adornment is a fresh and contemporary way to demonstrate sartorial expression. Once you maintain the “rule” of one print at a look, the key to approach the right style is layering. Try wearing solid color pants that match your shirt, a white summer jacket and a pair of suede tassel loafers! Jewelry and a panama hat are always welcome!

The Khaki Suit
The khaki suit is the ultimate leisure suit. Being usually lightweight, the khaki suit is a comfortable option, while it brings a relaxed, stylish and chill vibe to your appearance.
I prefer to get a khaki suit with me on my vacation because it is mighty versatile. It is bright and fresh and will proudly accompany you everyday anywhere-anytime! You can wear it with a polo shirt, a t-shirt, a white shirt or a patterned shirt. Khaki, as all neutral colors, can be paired with almost anything! The combinations are endless!
Regarding the shoes: You can wear your khaki suit with a pair of sneakers, sandals, espadrilles, rivieras… or even barefoot!
The khaki suit is definitely a summer essential!
On summer vacations, many of us want to go the extra mile by using bold, colorful or even peculiar accessories. A pair of multicolored suspenders and a funky tie, radiate a sartorial and creative aura to every outfit! Try them with a monochromatic shirt and pants combination and keep your other accessories neutral. A fedora hat and a pair of leather woven shoes can beautifully complement your summer stylish outfit!

Is there any man that does not wear Bermuda shorts on his vacations? Shorts are relaxed, cool and comfortable. Combine a vibrant tailored pair of shorts with a same color polo shirt for a monochromatic and quite interesting result. Instead of sneakers or sandals, you can choose a pair of Rivieras – the perfect holiday shoe!
The Short-sleeved Shirt
Many claim that the short-sleeved shirt is obsolete and kitsch. I, totally, disagree! The short-sleeved shirt when worn right could turn to a bold statement, oozing a vintage, romantic and bohemian attitude. And if you are going to roll out the short-sleeved option it’s got to be good, try a patterned shirt paired with plain solid pants, a combination that would definitely bring the right amount of coolness for your summer vacation!
On summer vacations all you need is a comfortable, safe and spacious car. A car that will make your life easy and pleasant. The powerful Volvo V90 Cross Country has plenty of space for you to carry everything you might need (fellow campers, you know exactly what I mean!).
Ideal for road trips, this car is a true gem! One of the three safest cars in the market (the other two are also Volvos!) Volvo V90 Cross Country offers a comfortable and efficient driving experience! The interior provides the ideal amount of technology for you to entertain yourself.
Music is food for the soul and it is essential to create the right mood for vacation! You can listen to your favorite playlists just by connecting your phone to CarPlay! Sit comfortably on the handmade leather seats and enjoy top-class sound provided by Bowers & Wilkins, surrounded by the gorgeous interior embellished with handmade wooden details!
One sentence sums up the feeling of excitement you get when you first drive Volvo V90: It’s like you fall in love for the first time!
