If you feel like you blinked and suddenly Father’s Day was around the corner, you’re actually right. Somehow, we’ve managed to spend much of the year 2020 inside the house and June is already here. With a long list of not-so-celebratory events in the months behind, we now have something to celebrate— all the Dads in our lives.
Some people are exiting work-from-home mode, and places like restaurants are re-opening for dine-in for those who dare venture into public establishments for recreational purposes. That means we can actually start putting effort into how we dress again (Dad, too). And as we’re slowly, but surely easing out of quarantine, it may be time to recommit to grooming routines as well.
You may have missed the trends buzzing around, what with being consumed by loungewear, but men’s fashion in 2020 is equipped with a feeling of reinvention and fun.
As the Black community mourns recent, unjust deaths at the hands of police officers, this is the perfect opportunity to uplift Black-owned brands who need our support, while simultaneously introducing Dad to pieces he didn’t know he needed. Here’s our gifting guide to grooming and wardrobe revamping for the Dads in your life this Father’s Day.
