With layering stripped down to a minimum, the shirt takes center stage. Look for a breathable fabric like linen or chambray.
A striped t-shirt is ideal for creating a relaxed yet chic summer outfit. Try pairing it with denim shorts or a flowy skirt.
A suede loafer can add a subtle contrast to your warm-weather look. Try a darker brown or classic black color.
The Perfect Dress
If your casual wardrobe needs a break from all the jeans and t-shirts, a linen button-up shirt might be just what you need. It’s lightweight, drapes well, and has that resort-ready aesthetic.
You can even have fun with patterns (not flannel, though)! Pastel blues, for example, are a safe space to explore. Pair them with light tan linen pants for a subtle contrast. You can also wear a shep shirt—a full-button cotton polo sweater—for a preppier look.
A structured blazer is a lightweight alternative to your formal suit jacket. It retains enough formality to work with a shirt and tie but is more relaxed than a traditionally tailored jacket for casual occasions.
Summer collection such as those from Adam Kimmel men’s summer fashion includes an oversized corduroy version that works with jeans and chinos and looks great dressed up or down with a t-shirt and sneakers. It’s also a great choice for summer because it is breathable and will keep you cool.
Try pairing a bold-colored blazer with neutral shorts or trousers. Color-blocking is a hot summer fashion trend that can add personality to your wardrobe.
The basic tee is a staple every man should have. It would help if you had more than the 5-pack of basic tee variety, though, so shop for options that fit well and flatter in the chest.
Bold colors are big this summer and can be a style statement or pair well with neutral pants or shorts. Look for coral, turquoise, or bright yellow shirts with khaki shorts or tailored trousers.
Pair a mint green or lavender shirt with pastel shorts for a softer look.
White sneakers are the ultimate casual-chic staple. Pair them with a tailored blazer and jeans for a comfortable and polished look.
White kicks are also a perfect finishing touch to summer dresses.
Opt for a sleek iteration for a clean and minimal take. This sneaker is made with cool canvas or premium leather and has no detail, making it the ideal neutral.
A denim jacket is one of the most expressive pieces in a man’s wardrobe. But it’s also a tough one to get right. Wear it well; you look like Ryan Gosling strolling through the airport. Wear it poorly, and you look like a cowboy.
A key is finding the right size. A classic fit should hit at the waistline and should have sleeves that end at your wrist. Avoid anything too short, as it creates a feminine look that undermines all but the most androgynous personal aesthetics.
Whether you’re looking for jeans with vintage inspiration or want a chic boho-chic look, flared denim is a must. Go for this high-waist pair or opt for the dramatic flair of these wide-flare jeans.
Make sure to read the label for spandex, which will help them stretch a bit when you bend or sit. Otherwise, the waistband may be too tight, and your outfit will appear concave.
Often relegated to the dad-style closet, Birkenstock sandals are making their way onto more and more men’s feet. From strappy styles to brown leather Birkenstocks, the laid-back footwear is a great option for elevating everyday looks throughout the summer.
Whether you opt for a classic two-strap design, the cork and latex footbeds will mold to your feet over time as they break in. Pair with skinny jeans and a tucked-in to channel a relaxed vibe.
Whether you want to look like a sartorial don or get comfy, wide-leg pants are the answer. From khaki military styles to clean masterpieces, baggy trousers are on-trend this spring.
Front-tuck a billowy blouse into palazzo pants to confidently flaunt your waistline, or elevate a casual stripe shirt with block-heeled boots. When paired with a fitted top, wide-leg pants are smart enough for work and elegant enough for evening wear.
