Whether at the pool, beach or the club, this season’s hot-off-the-runway fashion is sure to make all those P-Town gay boys jump for joy.
Whether you’re looking for the sexiest swimwear or that perfect night-on-the-town look, Q-Notes has your Sizzling Summer Fashion Guide ready and waiting.
Forget the long trunks boys. We want to see some skin! You’ve worked hard for that perfect body, working out at the gym and visiting tanning salons all winter long. Show it off, guy (and gal) — you deserve it.
Always thought lifeguards in speedos were hot? Here’s your chance to emulate your adolescent beach dream. Andrew Christian’s Lifeguard series brings out the traditional lifeguard look with a matching low-cut bikini and sweatpants set.
Andrew Christian’s AC Retro low-cut bikinis show off that perfect sporty look. Neat accents like draw ties on the front and contrasting colors around the waist and thighs draw you some extra attention from Mr. Right — or, at least, that hot guy at the bar.
Get your hands on the AC Retro and Lifeguard collections online at www.andrewchristian.com.
We certainly can’t forget about our ladies. For that perfect beach look, go for Cia.Maritima, the largest producer of swimwear in Brazil. Cia.Maritima is the country’s hottest and most sought after high end boutique line with impeccable craftsmanship. Available at the fun, funky, couture clothing retailer Hints in downtown Greensboro (336-272-6262, www.shophints.com).
Are you a lady with a more traditional sense of style? You aren’t left out of the summer fun, by any means. Chica Rica, direct from South Beach carries fun and colorful
traditional styles. Available at Earth Angel in Charlotte (704-532-8360).
Have a night on the town? Day at the spa? Summer lunch date?
Check out these light and airy summer styles from Dolce & Gabbana and Laguna Beach Jean Company, both available at Hints in Greensboro.
Stylish pants, shirts and jeans are tops for this summer’s cool fashion forecast. Try out a relaxed pant or shirt for the guys and a hot pair of sexy jeans for the gals while you party, picnic or hang out with friends.
Sometimes the hottest clothes on a person, are those that can’t be seen. White Rabbit in Raleigh (919-856-1429) and Charlotte (704-537-4067).
Ginch Gonch. The little guys’ underwear for grown men — the perfect way to feel a little fun and immature. Forget you have to work on Monday. Forget the bills you have to pay. Have some fun.
