Tips for Choosing Carlos Santana Wool Felt Fedora with Guitar Pin - Meditation (SAN216)

It was bound to happen. Men have been lolling around in comfortable clothes that are just a little too tattered around the edges for far too long and the backlash has started! Now sharp, stylish and svelte are firmly back in fashion - just in time for summer.

This 'wear it smart' movement's figurehead is style guru and TV and radio presenter George Lamb, who recently scooped the Best Dressed Man of the Year award. The canny Scot collected his accolade at The Clothes Show Style Awards in London, confirming his status as the UK's most on-trend guy and a closer examination of his outfits gives a clue to this summer's essential look.

Although, it is not mandatory that you opt for Lamb's trademark 'bow-tie' look, wearing smart clothes and thinking 'laid-back and vintage' is essential this summer. Simple layering with sun-bleached and cool colours, using tees or vests with a check shirt or tunic on top, worn with bleached faded jeans or denim shorts is the on-trend look. Accessories such as plaited leather belt, beach beads, straw trilby and a summer scarf complete the Traveller look.

Also big this summer will be the Riviera trend, especially around the pool or on the beach, which features vibrant reds, ocean blues and a lot of bright white. Smart alternatives for this look include cotton chino-style trousers, Wayfarer sunglasses and this summer's essential footwear - white plimsolls.

So, have no doubt when it comes to men's clothing for summer 2009, 'smart' is the key. Close-fitting and smart with not a fray in sight this summer's wardrobe pays homage to the classic style of our fathers and grandfathers.

To ensure that you can complete this summer's 'smart' look here is a list of the top five essentials:

  • Simple stripe tee: in solid contrasting colours preferably red and navy or grey and white;
  • Polo top: take inspiration from the mod era and go for a tipped version;
  • White plimsolls: this summer classic matches with just about everything in your summer wardrobe;
  • Cotton trousers: checks again, or simple stripes and bold colours in navy, green and even on-trend pink;
  • Accessories: opt for hats, particularly trilbies and mix with cotton scarves and an on-trend man bag
The time has come to get stylish. Goodbye to the days of lounging around in old shorts and Hawaiian shirts. This year, dress up your wardrobe and celebrate the summer in style.

Have you ever found a dusty, crumpled vintage hat that you just knew had potential? Now you can coax them into wearable shape. Here are some tips and tricks that I have used to take care of my own vintage hats. Try them out on your own vintage toppers to refresh and renew, but please use common sense and take care when working with any piece of vintage clothing.

Dusty hats often pop up as a treasured find at a flea market or sale. Clean them with a hair brush made for babies or an old shaving brush. The bristles are soft and there's less chance of damage to the hat. Brush in a circular motion, or if the hat has a nap (a fabric with nap is one that has a pile or rough surface) brush in the direction of the nap. You can also use sticky tape or a slightly damp towel to gently lift surface dust or lint. And don't forget, hat boxes were invented for a reason - packing your hats away in a box with tissue paper will help keep them in good shape to enjoy.

Do you know how to plump up wilted flowers or ribbons? A little steam will perk up sad fabric flowers or ribbons. Use long tongs to hold the hat in the steam from a tea kettle or a boiling pot of water on the stove. Be sure to keep your hands out of the steam as you carefully turn the hat so that the steam rises onto the flower and it will "unwilt" before your eyes. Keep the hat in the steam long enough to do the job but not so that it gets wet.

Once in awhile a vintage hat loses its shape. If it's a fabric hat you can try steaming it briefly over a pot of boiling water to make it pliable. You can also put the hat on an ironing board and use a steam iron. Don't iron the hat; just hold the steam iron above the hat so the steam goes on the fabric. Then stuff the hat full of white tissue paper to the shape you want and let it dry or cool down. You can also shape it over an inverted plastic container if you find one that is the right size. A large dinner plate can help to shape a felt tam or beret.

Are you feeling mysterious enough to wear a veiled hat but your veil is not cooperating? Here's an old trick that my mother taught me that helps to shape or straighten a wrinkled veil. First take a white paper towel and put it on an ironing board. Then place a piece of wax paper over the paper towel. Next, place the veil carefully smoothed out to the desired shape. The last layer is a white cotton towel. Set your iron on a low setting and iron the layers for a few seconds. Work slowly in small sections at a time, moving the veil to a new spot as you finish each section. This helps to smooth out and stiffen the veil. You'll have to experiment to find the best heat setting and the length of time to safely iron the layers. Err on the side of caution and use very low heat at first.

From simple berets to flowered finery, take care of your vintage hats and you'll enjoy them for many years to come. Remember, a good hat tops a great outfit.
