With the double whammy of the Queen’s Jubilee and the festival season to enjoy, this summer looks set to be one long party. Echoing the festival mood are this summer’s men’s fashion trends, which are all about fun. There’s something for everyone with this season’s styles, and as the heavy winter knits come off, fashion is lightening up with a combination of funky florals, pale pastels, and sporty chic. If you want to hit this year’s key summer trends, these tips should see you through the season in style.
Ditch the Jeans
Forget boring blue jeans and opt for smart sophistication with classically cut trousers. The spring/summer catwalks were full of 1920s inspired tailoring with a modern twist. To get the roaring twenties Great Gatsby look, opt for chino trousers in light, neutral shades like cream and beige – team with a crisp white shirt or a fitted t-shirt and brogues for an easy smart-casual look.
Prints and Patterns
Floral prints with a masculine edge are in vogue right now, so don’t be afraid to try them out. The high streets are teeming with foliage prints and patterns, and even bold Hawaiian shirts in sunny, tropical colours are back. For a fashion-forward look, team your floral shirt with skinny jeans or smart tailored shorts.
This summer is all about sport events, and sporting inspiration has even found its way to the nation’s high streets. But we’re not talking tracksuits – to dress up a sporty look, try trousers with go-faster stripes in hot neon hues, and look for shirts and t-shirts that hint at sportswear with mesh and lycra embellishments. If you want a change from trainers, opt for ‘low-top’ baseball boots to wear with rolled-up jeans or cotton trousers.
