Fashion-Forward Father’s Day Gifts for Less-Than-Dapper Dads
Our dads certainly taught us a lot. Like how to (successfully) change our oil, balance our checkbooks and ride our bicycles. Now it’s time to return the favor. It’s time to teach them a little something about fashion via our Father’s Day gifts.
For instance they should know that they still can’t wear socks with sandals. No matter the situation. It’s important to point out that fanny packs are back in style. They should also be filled in on the fact that certain pairs of sneakers are now considered athleisure. In addition, they’re probably completely unaware that tie-dye has gone from strictly hippie to absolutely trendy.
So let’s keep the corny dad jokes and lose those baggy old cargo shorts. Keep reading to check out some totally fashionable Father’s Day gifts for every type of dad. We’re talking everything from a cool moto jacket to a colorful statement watch. Because dad definitely needs to upgrade.
