Father's Day - from top-to-toe

11.06.12

Whether your Dad is sartorially-minded or not, he's surely going to love a stylish gift come Sunday? Despite claims about saving your cash and not 'worrying' about them this year, Dads deserve a little something to show them you care. We've rounded up our favourite Father's Day gifts, from top-to-toe - you can't go wrong.

1. A fedora hat is a classic that all Dads love. From shading their faces on the annual holiday to cutting a dash on lazy summer afternoons, it's stylish and fun.

2. The pocket square. Easy to wrap and purse string-friendly, you literally can't go wrong. Play it safe with block colours (navy or white are winners), or appeal to Dads' artistic side with something printed.

3. A tie is a tried-and-tested 'Dad' gift. In luxurious silk and linen, choose bold colours and vintage prints that will liven up his suit a treat - without any novelty tack in sight.

4. Preppy polo shirts are a wardrobe essential, and there will be a colour, shape and style for all Dads. It's a gift he won't be parted from all summer.

5. A chunky knit. Of course, you can rely on the British summer to be unreliable, so soften the blow with a weighty knit. Cardigans rule in the Dad world, and a textured style is right on-trend.

6. Chinos. A classic trouser whatever your age, be brave and pluck a seasonal candy-coloured pair, or opt for navy or stone for the more discerning Dad.

7. Swim shorts. Holiday Dads can lose all sense of style. Don't let them with these tropical swim shorts, they'll keep him looking cool beside the pool.

8. Man bags are a sticking point for some Dads. but if its masculine and stylish he won't be able to resist carting his belongings around in it every day.

9. Socks are a given on Father's Day, but upgrade the offering with something a little more luxe. These vintage-inspired printed styles may even encourage Dads to roll their hems and show them off.

10. Shoes. From classic brogues, to a casual espadrille or a sunshine-friendly sandal, Dads can need encouragement in the footwear department. Nudge them in the right direction with this stylish pair.
