Sure, summer looks a little different this year but we are a resourceful bunch and we will have our day (or days) in the sun.
Whether your plans include the perfect social distanced vacation with an all-in camping/lake getaway, taking a mental-break day trip to the beach or relaxing by catching a few rays in your own backyard you’ll want to look and feel your best. After all that’s what summer is all about. Keep your cool and soak up those feel-good sunny vibes!
So what are the “cool” kids wearing this summer? The biggest trend is functionality. Pieces that serve dual purposes. High-tech fabrics and innovative designs. Things that are not only fashionable but lightweight, soft, breathable, have stretch, are moisture-wicking, fast drying and cooling.
When you think of “summer” clothing, nothing says “summer” like Tommy Bahama. From beach to backyard and everywhere in between for over 25 years Tommy Bahama has inspired the world to relax in style while embracing the world around them.
