While women reach for vibrant maxi dresses, flowy caftans or bejewelled tunics on a beach holiday, men tend to look like they're lounging at home with a bucket of KFC, in shorts and ratty old t-shirt. What's worse is when the chunkier ones with a muffin top or man boobs wear muscle shirts and teeny tiny Speedos.31 May 2010 - 12:00am

French chic at its
best. It's way cheaper than designer brands, making it perfect for credit-crunch splurging.
Worn with a pair of jeans to create a look that's old Hollywood glam-meets-2009.
