The T-shirt is a must for every summer vacation. Whether monochrome in white and dark blue or with casual prints and strong colors, these classics can be combined in many ways and hardly take up space in the suitcase. Important for very unusual T-shirts: combine them with plain chinos or Bermuda shorts.

The shirt with the typical collar and button placket exudes sporty casualness, but at the same time has a certain style. In the Otto Kern online shop you can find both classic plain-colored and brightly striped polo shirts in trendy colors such as navy blue, white and red.

A light white linen shirt with rolled up sleeves looks totally chic and increases the attractiveness of every man. Linen has a cooling effect on the skin and is less susceptible to dirt and bacteria. Linen trousers also promise a comfortable fit.

Bermuda shorts in cargo style

Long chinos and jeans are superfluous during the day at more than 30 degrees Celsius, which is why you rely on breathable pants such as Bermudas in fresh colors such as light blue, navy, khaki or olive. Combine them with a casual t-shirt and sporty sneakers.

Chinos in summery colors

Matching shoes to the summer outfit for the vacation


If there is no gala or casino visit on the program, you can leave your patent leather shoes at home. Sneakers, boat shoes and flip-flops are the right choice for summer vacations. But these have no place in a restaurant. Elegant lace-ups that combine sporty and trendy elements are better suited. The comfortable ones Otto Kern shoes for example guarantee a stylish appearance for every occasion.

Socks should also be color-coordinated with your shorts and shoes. The best fit sneaker socks that reach no more than the ankle and disappear in the shoe.

The accessories make the difference


For the perfect holiday look, the right accessories are almost as important as the clothes. Replace heavy silver jewelry and watches with leather straps that look casually elegant. Sunglasses and a summer hat are essential. The straw hat for men is immediately reminiscent of the sun and the beach and is therefore a particularly popular accessory on summer holidays.
