5 Songs to Match Your Party Shirt

The great Australian summer is almost upon us folks, and what better way to inform everybody you know how to jam than with a fun outfit and a wicked track to get the whole party vibing on your epic level of chilled dudeness? Kings of laidback living and curators of poolside etiquette Barney Cools don’t just stop at designing the perfect wardrobe for hot days and long nights – given their collective abilities on the decks they’re also dabsters at building some of the best playlists this side of the Pacific (and beyond).

To celebrate their latest Hotel Cools collection,  we teamed up with the lads to get their take on 5 fun looks with a cracking choon to match each one, so you can be the life of the party whether you’re sunning yourself in Malibu or slumming it in Maroochydore.

Summer Goes by iamalex

This outfit is your do-it-all, beach to the bar salty Sunday session get-up, and Summer Goes By by iamalex is the track to match. Picture yourself strutting along Venice or Manly Beach, on the way to the nearest Piña Colada vendor, with not a worry in the world.

All I had by Louis La Roche

The Pink B.Original Tee is a crowd favourite, especially with the ladies. Once you’ve won her heart by wearing one, All I Had by Louis La Roche is a slow and sexy track that could easily be the soundtrack to a couple’s summer of love. Real baby makin’ music, fellas.

T-shirt: B.Original Tee Pink Stripe

Azimba by Miami Horror

The Pink Pelican Shirt and Disco Sock combo mean one thing: party time. Azimba by Miami Horror is an obvious choice for this look – Barney Cools just locked them in for their 3rd Birthday Party on December 2nd. Expect the pelican shirt (and a bunch of dudes dancing like pelicans) to be out in full force.

Before This by Later, Casisdead

Throw on a Bonds singlet, tuck it into your B.Relaxed Chinos and chuck the Indigo Floral Shirt over the top (undone, of course). You’ll be all steeze, just like the track Before This by Later & Casisdead.

Cap: Barney Cools Dad Cap Tobacco 

Shirt: Classic Button Short Sleeve Shirt Indigo Floral

Chinos: B.Relaxed Chino (Straight leg) Dark Olive

Socks: Rainbow Socks Oatmeal

American Eyes by Promises Ltd.

Sunset is arguably the best part of the day. The transition between night and day is when the party really gets going and everyone starts to get a bit weird (but in a good way). In Barney’s eyes,  American Eyes by Promises Ltd. captures this perfectly. The first half of the track is mellow and the crescendo takes us through to the sunset when, at around the 3 minute mark, the sun goes down and the real party kicks off.

Denim Jacket: B.Rigid Jacket 90’s Panel Indigo
