Summer presents the perfect time to lighten up in every sense of the word and men’s fashion is no exception.
Stiff blazers and wool trousers give way to soft linens, comfy chinos and even, when appropriate, shorts! Basically, the season’s hottest pieces for men are ones that are more than willing to work overtime during office hours and on into the weekend.Men who are looking to boost their summer thread count without appearing too casual should consider natural fibres such as cotton their best fashion allies during the hot months ahead.
When it comes to summer textiles, breathability is key. And there is nothing more airy than linen. The natural textile, which is derived from the flax plant, is a must-try in hot weather thanks to its quick-drying properties.
A simple white button-up is always a classic (and safe) choice for men.
Shorts are a fun way to wear linen, but be aware of where you can and can’t wear them. Many employers won’t embrace the shorts look for the office, but if you’re working in a more “smart-casual” space.
Sunglasses are always a fun way to show a bit of personality. And the best part? They can be quickly taken on or off to alter your look depending on the mood and locale.
Sure, you could wear those tried-and-true loafers to the office this summer. Or, you could surprise your co-workers (and maybe even yourself) by stepping into a chic and comfortable pair of suede.
Last but not least, beat the heat while still looking zipped up with this linen sweater. The easy-to-wear style will look just as stylish paired with a collard shirt and tan chinos as it will with jeans and your most lived-in tee.
