Upgrade Green: Men's Memorial Day Style

by Myron Mariano

Celebrate the beginning of summer with these four eco-outfits that epitomized Memorial Day style

For the city

A lightweight blazer with a short-sleeved shirt is great for an all-day museum marathon with plenty of gelato breaks in between! Bring a roomy carryall for any accoutrements.

For traveling

Even though comfort is the name of the game when traveling, it’s still not an excuse to dress sloppily. There are plenty of options that blend style with ease of movement. These include insoles with heavy-duty shock absorption, shirt jackets that you can layer or wear alone, and packable pants that barely take up space in your luggage.

For the beach

Soak up the sun in a pair of UPF 50+ rated board shorts and a sleeveless tee that shows off the body you’ve been working so hard. Don’t forget to slather on sunscreen!

For grilling

For many of us, summer means firing up the barbecue and having spirited conversations with friends and family. Unfortunately, the rising temperatures also signal the coming of bugs. Insect-repellant clothing paired with all-natural citronella candles, is an unbeatable combo for maximum outdoor enjoyment.
