on trend

Here's why a farmer's tan is the hottest look this summer

It just screams “I’ve been outside.”

THERE ARE FEW red-hot looks that Irish men can claim to absolutely own in the summer months.

Of course, we as a nation rock flowery Penney’s shorts better than anyone else, and black socks with GAA shorts will never go out of fashion here.

But it’s the farmer’s tan that’s truly on trend for summer ’16

It’s the kind of stylish look that screams “I’VE BEEN OUTSIDE”

A farmer’s tan also lets everyone know what kind of cutting edge outfit you had on the previous day

That outline.

The beauty of the farmer’s tan is that everyone truly believes it will soon turn to a lovely, real tan

If the weather is half decent, you can spot the farmer’s tan a mile off

It has such a free-wheeling “I don’t use sun cream” vibe to it

The contrast of pale white and hot red is a look to cherish

That makes it the hottest statement for any Irish man this summer – no matter if it’s the arms or the legs

So, it’s at this stage of the summer that we have to acknowledge the farmer’s tan as the quintessential Irish look of 2016
