What's New for the Hot New You


That's right gents, the weather is finally turning and the temperatures are starting to rise. After a long, long winter we here at Universal Gear are ready to heat things up with some sizzling new looks that just came in. Start packing up your turtle necks and pea coats cuz it 's about to get hot hot hot!

Polo's Please -
Sporty and casual, this is a summer must! I'm not talking about your daddies Izod either. These new polo's are sporty and playful with a touch or retro cool. My current favs in this department include the G-Star Hopkins Polo and the Scotch & Soda 4Sure Polo, which combine laid back cool and a hint of varsity style old school. I also enjoy the distressed Pique Polo's from Threads for Thoughts. They are a great twist to the basic polo.


Crazy For Cargo - Perfect for a day out and about, the cargo short is a great
way to travel light and still have enough pockets to hold your wallet, cell, camera, and
keys. Scotch & Soda have a great range of cargo shorts right now, which range anywhere from basics to camo to paradise prints.


Plaid Me Down - Plaid! Yes this trendy fabric is no longer just for lumberjacks. From shorts to swimwear, this playful pattern is showing up everywhere in the fashion world. Which brings me to my next summer must: the simple Short Sleeved Plaid Button Up. This sexy summer style looks great, especially when worn over a tank top with the short sleeve slightly cuffed up. When it comes to sexy plaid perfection my favs from Universal's What's New section are the G-Star New Gould Check Woven Shirt, Scotch And Soda Plaid Snap Woven, and the Monarchy Red Woven.


*Until next time kids, work on your base tan, put in those summer highlights
and make sure to schedule your a pedicure. . . flip flop season is finally here!
