So, it's Summer here in Australia...

...which generally means everyones faces are sweating off.

So, how do we retain our fringes, penchant for black clothing and layers? 

Slick your hair back for the summer. I know, very rockabilly... but oh so cute. Plus, it saves you from "sweaty fringe syndrome".

 Invest in a really amazing pair of sunglasses, remember to be bold. Here are my top pics for men's sunglasses with an punk rock edge:

 Although skinny jeans are fantastic and really attractive, I would hope that male appreciators everywhere would understand that sometimes it's just too hot to wear them.

My advice? Invest in a pair or two of your favourite jeans, and cut them just above the knee.

Then throw them in the washing machine to give them a nice frayed edge, or fold them up once so it looks like a hem, but is actually just a fold.

Also, don't be afraid to spatter some bleach on them or completely submerge them to give them a kind of acid  wash look.

A pair of skinny jeans can easily turn into your new favourite pair of shorts. 
If you have old ones with holes in the crotch, sew up that hole and turn them into shorts, whilst buying yourself a new pair of jeans.

I'm sure you have an abundance of lightweight shirts, but there is nothing hotter than a dude in a sleeveless black band shirt.

If you're looking for something different than your average t-shirt, what about vests?

In terms of shoes, there is nothing wrong with a pair of flip flops for casual days out at the mall or laying in the park reading - however when you go to see bands or are walking a fair bit, it is definitely important to invest in a good pair of shoes.
