As summer kicks into full gear, Jim Fortier, owner of Blueprint 5 in East Greenwich, says men should update their wardrobe with modern pieces and bright colors.

When it comes to cookouts and summer parties, Fortier says it’s important to have some fun with your wardrobe and be whimsical. 

Some of Fortier’s favorites include white, gray and light blue jeans and a light weight blue blazer that dresses up any outfit. 

If you like wearing polos, Fortier says to update the polo by choosing a patterned shirt. He says a cut-a-way collar also gives a modern feel as well. 

For swimwear, Fortier says men should feel great in their bathing suits and stop wearing the board shorts. He says it’s time to go a little shorter.

“Wearing something shorter gives you more proportion,” Fortier says. He explains wearing a shorter short can give men the appearance of looking taller. 

A lot of thought and care went into the men’s swim wear that Blueprint 5 carries. They picked the fabric and the length for some of the shorts that were designed by a company in Italy.
