Men’s Vacation Must Haves

The sweet smell of freedom, sunny days at the beach and summer parties – summer vacation is near. However, before you start enjoying in it, you need to get over the crucial phase – packing. Men often take this for granted, but before you hit the road, you need to be properly equipped.  Here are some of the essential men’s summer travel must-haves, both fashionable and practical.

#Swimwear Shorts

For a day at the beach, wear swimwear shorts with paisley or chequered prints, or a dual-tone colour for an easy transition into evening walk or a boat ride. Combine it with aviator sunglasses and rubber flip-flops.

#Skin Cosmetics

In the heat of the summer, don’t forget to protect your skin from sun damage. Regularly apply sunscreen with an SPF higher than 15. In addition, use quality face and body moisturizers with SPF to prevent your skin drying up from sun or chlorine water. Also moisturiser by asap skin care is men’s number one choice when it comes to keeping skin hydrated.

#Beard Products

Shaving your beard just because it’s summer is not necessary – proper nourishing of facial hair will make you look cool throughout the season. Remember to trim your beard and keep it off your neck. Also, cleanse the skin under it regularly and use quality beard oil for a final touch.

#A Linen Shirt


For every day casual look, a linen shirt is a great choice. The light fabrics make it pleasant to wear while looking stylish, which is perfect for summer. You can opt for a standard in white or play around with colours and choose pastel tones, bright red, or orange.

#Flat Front Shorts

This is a classic piece that is suitable for evening walks or less formal parties. Choose a length that suits you best and make sure they are the right size and not too loose. You can also buy several pieces in different colours to wear them on various occasions.


A pair of classic jeans is an essential travel staple, suitable for both sunny days and sudden rainfalls. The golden middle is what you should strive for when choosing the right denim – not too loose and not too tight. A perfect fit will attract girls’ looks.

#Canvas Sneakers

These sneakers are a perfect choice of footwear on a chilly evening. They’re versatile, light, and go well with everything. Opt for neutral tones, such as white to easily make stylish summer vacation outfits.

#A Denim Jacket


A classic denim jacket is a great choice when you want to look casual on chilly evenings. Combine it with a button down shirt, jeans, and canvas shoes to look spot on.

#A Weekend Bag

Instead of suitcases and backpacks, why not opt for a weekend bag for your summer travel. Apart from being practical, it can also be a stylish accessory. A leather bag is always the right choice, since it goes well with all clothing pieces. Additionally, leather bags are usually high quality and they last for a long time, so you won’t regret spending money on it.


A day at the beach is unimaginable without flip-flops. Apart from being perfect for sand-covered surfaces, they’re also great for casual walks or just regular walks to the store. Choose an ideal design from a variety of options and combine them with short shorts for an effective summer outfit.



The main reason to wear sunglasses is to protect your eyes from the sun, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t look fashionable while doing so. One of the most popular shapes of men’s sunglasses is aviator, which can be easily combined with various outfits.

Proper skin protection, fashionable outfits and practical accessories are all you need for a perfect summer vacation. Use these tips to get through summer looking your best while having an amazing time.
