Planning the perfect Father’s Day doesn’t need to be complicated. Summer’s here, the days are getting longer, and baseball season is well underway. Add in some quality family time and how much more does a dad really need? Inspired by Michael Kors’ summer collection — which is filled with sophisticated, versatile pieces that pair just as well with afternoons by the lake as nights in the city — here are Father’s Day itineraries for dads of every age, along with tips on how to dress the part. Because you already make fatherhood look good.
The New Dad…
HIT THE BEACH
Teaching your kid to swim isn’t just a great way for you to bond, it also sets them up for lifelong benefits, like better fitness and mental health as an adult. Plus, a trip to the beach is the perfect opportunity to impart another equally-valuable life lesson: proper sand castle engineering.
What to wear:
Go ahead and rock that Hawaiian shirt you’ve been waiting all year to wear. The classic aviator silhouette of these Dayton sunglasses will add a cool, modern touch to compliment your look, no matter how bright the rest of your outfit may be.
The Seasoned Pro…
GO TO A GAME
Sharing your love of the game with your kids – and the joys of a summer afternoon at the ballpark – will kickstart a ritual you can enjoy together for seasons to come. And one that they can pass down to their own children someday.
What to wear:
Save the team jerseys for the kiddos. You’ll feel (and look) much cooler in a breezy logo-print cotton polo, with a hint of stretch for when you need to snag that foul ball and become even more of a hero in their eyes.

The Elder Statesman…
CATCH UP OVER DINNER
If your kids are grown and out of the house, the best gift of all is time spent together. No matter how old they get, they’ll always look up to you, so reconnect over dinner and show them what living well looks like: in the way you dress, the way you converse – and the way you tip.
What to Wear:
The right timepiece, like this sleek Lexington gold-tone watch, elevates any outfit you wear it with, from a lightweight summer blazer to your most sophisticated suit. And if you raised your kids right, this stylish Henry leather billfold won’t need to leave your pocket when the cheque arrives.
