Consider yourself lucky if you and your dad share the same style, because that means you get to shop pieces you can both use. But even if you don’t, it doesn’t hurt to pay attention to his.
Admit it: you’ve griped about his favorite piquet polo shirts (that come in different colors!) that are always on rotation or the outdated leather shoes he uses in almost all occasions, so use this Father’s Day as an opportunity to update his wardrobe for him.
Here’s our style guide to help you think of what to shop next for him this weekend, or on any other day for that matter. Whether he likes casual, sporty, or business-as-usual dressing, there is a staple piece you can get him that can surely spice up his wardrobe. Return the favor for all the times when he paid for your purchases and buy him something nice in return. Then both of you can take that perfect OOTD shot together.
Help your dad semi-retire his usual t-shirt-and-shorts combo and introduce him to the more structured pairing of a jean jacket and jeans. With the look finished off with a pair of sneakers, he can spend his weekends in style, going from family brunch to running errands with ease.
LIFE OF ATHLEISURE
If his ever-reliable running shoes are your dad’s favorite style item, grab him some functional yet stylish tops and bottoms that he can wear with them in multiple ways: a dri-fit t-shirt for his badminton sessions with your titos, or a sweatshirt that would fit right in with the mall crowd.
BUSINESS AS USUAL
If round-the-clock work keeps your dad in a suit and tie nearly 24/7, get him a new one that’s less boardroom, more Sunday after-church special. Find a light-colored pair that he can wear with just a plain t-shirt underneath and loafers for his weekend meetings with suppliers and business partners.
