Summertime…and the living is easy! Oh yes, we couldn’t be more excited about hot summer days spent by the pool, beach or sipping coffee in the local park and warm nights enjoying drinks with the gang.
That’s the dream! Make it a fashionable one too. Summer is the perfect time for guys to experiment with their style and try wearing something fun and exciting.
Don’t get spooked, though. With only a few add-ons and adjustments, you can have the ultimate summer wardrobe and be ready for whatever fun comes your way.
Here are the ultimate summer style tips for guys.
Update your t-shirt collection
If there’s one thing you can’t do without in summer, it’s t-shirts. Review your t-shirt selection before the heat hits, and make sure you have your bases covered.
You should have a few colours and styles in your arsenal – crewnecks, V-necks, Polos, Henleys in classic white, grey, black, as well as in more exciting yellows, blues and greens.
Always go for high-quality t-shirts like the black v-necks from Fresh Clean Tees and skip logos, quotes, graphics and other unnecessary details.
Have your trousers and shorts ready
If it’s hot out, wear shorts whenever appropriate. We repeat, wear shorts!
They are the perfect choice to stay cool and experiment with your look.
There are a few things to know when choosing your shorts. Never wear too-short shorts, and always opt for a pair that’s no shorter than 4 inches above your knee.
Pick lightweight fabrics like cotton and linen and stay with simple colours that will work with your colourful tees and patterned shirts.
When you have to wear trousers, make sure you swap heavy denim to linen, linen blend or chinos.
Get an unstructured blazer for smart-casual occasions
Summer is the time to relax, but there are still occasions and events when you need to wear something more formal. This is where an unstructured lightweight blazer comes in.
Breathable, light and airy, it’s the perfect summer choice. Always opt for linen or cotton and brighter colours (skip the dull grey and black!) such as pastels. You can easily throw on this blazer on top of a t-shirt, regular shirt and nice pair of chinos or shorts.
Celebrate in a summer linen suit
We love a good linen suit! It’s the perfect choice for a summer wedding or a fancy garden party.
Choose a fun colour to stand out of the navy and beige crowd and enjoy the airiness this attire provides in hot temperatures.
We recommend pairing it with summer espadrilles or loafers.
Upgrade your shoe game
In summer, you need something light and breathable on your feet. Luckily, there are plenty of great options.
Firstly, there are your trusty trainers for running around in the city. A pair of trainers will be the best investment you’ll make over the summer, as they’re versatile and stylish shoes that you can dress up and down.
Stick to simple white and off-white colours so you can easily style them with any trousers and shorts.
Canvas sneakers will work great on a really hot day, just like espadrilles that are both super boho-stylish and comfortable.
For a more official occasion, go for a pair of loafers in light brown.
Buy new and cool swimwear
Throw away your decade-old swimming trunks and get something really great this season.
Fun men’s swimwear has never been so exciting with endless options in cuts and fabrics.
Choose swim trunks with fun designs and in neutral colours like pale pink and light blue that will work as casual shorts too.
Get your signature fragrance
Summer is the perfect time for a guy to get a signature fragrance! It gives you that cool guy vibe and makes you feel like you’re on holiday all the time.
Try something light and fresh like citrus or faint wood aromas.
