A summer without tank tops is like a winter without coats. Our right to bare arms is most important during the sticky summer months and tank tops are also the easiest way to nonchalantly show off your progress at the gym.

A blue and white Americana print makes the tank the perfect Fourth of July top.

Forget to wash your face after a long day at the beach? Use Ole Henriksen's miraculous Walnut Complexion Scrub and all signs of dirty pores and over-night blemishes will go away within minutes, making the inexpensively-priced skincare item every man's secret weapon.

An inexpensive pair of casual denim shorts are an integral part of every summer wardrobe. Whether you're going to rooftop parties, the beach, or happy hour, nothing can beat the fun and care-free look.

Short-sleeved button up shirts can give off a geeky feel, but a colorful pattern makes the top easily work for day or night.

Although the summer's all about leisure, we've still got to work. Since it's too hot to traipse around the city streets in long khaki pants, shorts with the legs slightly rolled up are a way to stay semi-professional while still beating the heat.

The professional-grade skincare brush digs deep in a way that normal face washing can't, making it a necessary part of maintaining beautiful, blemish-free, sun-kissed skin.

Traditional jeans are perfect for cooler star-filled nights or when shorts just aren't the right fit. A pale blue color gives the pants a sense of lightness that keeps one's style on point for summer.

Men's summer style is all about putting a simple and unique twist on classic basics that easily transition from work to happy hour or the beach. Whether they're tough Red Wing boots, a patriotic tank top, or durable denim shorts, the warm sun calls for sturdy must-haves strong enough to withstand chlorine and sand, but still look great for the office.

And although clothing may be the most important element of style for some, a trustworthy skincare routine is just as important to keep sun-kissed skin glowing. Believe it or not, Clarisonic brushes and walnut scrubs should be every man's secret weapons.
