Ever feel like Dad’s wardrobe is a bit drab? Fashion expert Jeanne Beker is here to help give him a hipster refresh. Whether his style is cool and casual, summer chic or urban and sophisticated, there’s a look that will suit him (outfits from left):
“Great classic styling with this shirt unbuttoned with a tee underneath. The colour of the tee looks great with the khaki green cargo pants. These are a great cross between a jean and a jogging pant, really nice casual look. The cap is a lovely shade of purple and these are a great pair of running shoes.” SHIRT, Gitman Bros. $180; T-SHIRT, Save Khaki $60; CAP, Norse Projects $95; PANTS, Garbstore $295; RUNNERS, New Balance $230. Lost & Found, 44 Ossington Ave.
“This is a great way to encourage your dad to get into prints because the colours are very subtle. I love the print on this shirt and these shorts with this sweatshirt over your dad’s shoulders. Bucket hats are back big time, and the sunglasses have a ’40s retro vibe, and I’ve never seen a shoe like this. I love them.” HAT, Universal Works $84; SWEATSHIRT, Lady White Co. $185; SHIRT, Norse Projects $195; SUNNIES, Raen $180; SHORTS, Oliver Spencer $215; SANDALS, Malibu $235. Uncle Otis, 329 Spadina Ave.
“What I love about this is really any man of any age can wear this and look hip without looking like he’s trying too hard. It’s a practical blazer, and I love a floral shirt with a great pair of jeans. This could be a nice way to introduce him to that distressed jean look and these beautiful, suede lace-up shoes.” BLAZER, Patrick Assaraf $795; BUTTON-UP, Patrick Assaraf $195; SHOES, Marsell $880; JEANS, Moussy $460.
