There are those nights where even after the sun goes down, you are still sweltering in 85+ degrees, wishing you had a fresh shirt on hand. But with a few key items in your late summer wardrobe, you can say goodbye to discomfort and hello to embracing the heat. Because you know come December, you’ll be wishing you hadn’t complained as you bundle up to face the cold. Check out our guide below so you can stop sweating and start savoring.Related: Tabor Made’s Dark/Summer Elevates Casual ClothingTank TopBefore you freak out and claim you would never wear such a thing, hear us out. There is a time and place for a tank top, and you do have the right to bare arms if you follow a few guidelines. This is a good area in which to use common sense. For example, tank tops at the beach and outdoor concerts: good. Tank tops in the office, a restaurant that doesn’t provide lobster bibs or a wedding: bad. Buy something with a relaxed fit but not so big you’re swimming in it either. We love how the neutral, simple Melange Tank Top from H&M goes with everything from denim to khaki shorts.ShortsSure this is a no-brainer, but not all shorts are created equal. We know you have the essentials on hand already, but what about a pair that can literally take you from ocean to tiki bar? That’s right, staying cool and looking good at the shore doesn’t need to mean a wardrobe change in musty beach bathrooms. Just grab a pair of shorts like Selby’s Chambrays, throw on a t-shirt (or tank hint, hint) and you’re ready to go.SunglassesNothing is more uncomfortable than a morning, afternoon or evening squinting into the blazing sun. Not only is it not a good look, UV rays are harming your eyes. As much as we wear sunglasses to accessorize, they serve a much bigger purpose than blocking out the haters. How about a pair that looks fly, protects your eyes, and are good for the environment. These Earth Wood Coronado sunglasses are made from fully recycled and biodegradable wood and feature anti-fog measures, so you’ll be seeing clear without all the wiping.HatYou might be thinking, but what about hat hair? You would be wrong to worry.  Aside from the possibility of a few tangles in your tresses, a hat is perhaps the most functional accessory in a man’s summer wardrobe.  A wearable shield against sun, wind, and whatever else the season can throw at you, this Straw Puritan hat by Topman is the perfect top-off to a stylish summer outfit.ShoesWe’re sorry (not sorry) to be the ones to break the news to you, fellas, but no one wants to see your rugged man feet in a skimpy pair of sandals. But a closed-toe shoe mustn’t mean a sweaty foot either. There are plenty of options out there that both look stylish and keep you cool. We’re sure you have a pair of canvas sneakers or even a classic boat shoe, both of which we 100% support as summer footwear. But we really dig these Rivieras Cotton Mesh Slip-Ons, designed to be both lightweight and good looking.Related: The 5 Best Stylish Sandals for SummerUpdated 07/19/2016 by Chase McPeak Dirtbag Style Guide: 5 Lessons That Apply to Everyonelast_img read more

US hopes Lanka will accept the new resolution

The first draft of the resolution of the United States on Sri Lanka, had noted with concern that the National Action Plan does not adequately address all of the findings and constructive recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) of Sri Lanka.Titled Promoting Reconciliation and Accountability in Sri Lanka, the first draft of the resolution to be submitted by the US reaffirmed that it is the responsibility of the Government of Sri Lanka to ensure the full enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms of its entire population. “Last year’s HRC resolution encouraged brave civil society groups on the ground to continue their efforts, and the United States will introduce another resolution at this session to ensure that the international community continues to monitor progress and to again offer assistance on outstanding reconciliation and accountability issues,” she said. She noted that the work of the Council will not be done as long as Sri Lanka falls short of implementing even the recommendations of its own Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) or in addressing the underlying sources of its longstanding ethnic conflict. The Unites States hops the Sri Lankan government will show cooperation on the new resolution which will be submitted to the UN Human Rights Council next month.Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs Esther Brimmer told the 22nd session of the UN Human Rights Council today that the new resolution will be to make sure the international community monitors progress and to again offer assistance on outstanding reconciliation and accountability issues in Sri Lanka. The resolution recalls the constructive recommendations contained in the LLRC’s report, including the need to credibly investigate widespread allegations of extra-judicial killings and enforced disappearances, demilitarize the north of Sri Lanka, implement impartial land dispute resolution mechanisms, re-evaluate detention policies, strengthen formerly independent civil institutions, reach a political settlement on the devolution of power to the provinces, promote and protect the right of freedom of expression for all and enact rule of law reforms. (Colombo Gazette) read more
