Summer is here, and it’s time to bring back the shorts and the tees. When you’re in double minds about your pieces while dressing up, keep in mind that less is more. Always stick to lighter colours and breathable fabrics. And when you’re going to stay outdoors for long, it’s better to cover up your body. Let us get more detailed and enter into the nitty-gritty of men’s clothing style this summer. We have written about the ultimate pieces you need to dress for summer 2019.
1. Basic t-shirts :
You need to stack up your wardrobe with a few pieces of basic tees in neutral colours. White, light blue and grey are essentials. You can spice up a bit and add colourful greens, yellows and reds to your collection to add in a sparkle of colour in your outfits. Basic plain tees are versatile and go amazingly well with shorts or beneath jackets. You can wear black in cooler indoor environments but avoid it if you’re to stay outdoors for long. Make sure your t-shirts are fully made of cotton, or other light, breathable materials.
2. Khaki Shorts :
Shorts and summers go hand in hand. Khaki shorts in tan, olive and camouflage colours are a never dying breed of clothing especially during summers. You can also try on different coloured shorts with basic casual shirts. T-shirts and shorts are the best combination in existence to grace summers’ sunshine and heat. A day at the beach or a hilltop picnic calls for light coloured shorts to be worn with flip-flops. Buy two to three plain coloured shorts to create different combinations and looks with shirts and t-shirts and shoes or flip-flops.
3. Light coloured pants :
It’s a better choice to wear light coloured chinos and trousers compared to thick denim. Along with reflecting the light back, they also cover up the legs protecting them from heat and radiation. In times of a long trip in the outdoors, it’s a better option to opt for light coloured pants instead of shorts. You can at times ditch the light coloured cream, beige and white pants to go for coloured pants to add a little funk to the outfit. Stick to neutral colours for the upper body in this case as the pants would be the star attraction!
4. Shirts :
When we talk about men’s dressing style, shirts are the most basic pieces of clothing to arrive in our minds. Summer shirts are light, bright and fun. Hawaiian shirts are a hot favourite to sport on with shorts or casual chinos and loafers! If you’re wearing full sleeved shirts the fold the sleeves and stick to lighter colours. Check pattern shirts with short sleeves also work great in workspaces as well as other outdoor activities.
5. Footwear :
Floaters and flip-flops are your best comfort options this season. If you want to go for shoes; espadrilles, loafers, sneakers, and boat shoes pair up well shorts and should be worn with ankle-length or invisible socks. Keep your shoe length below the ankles.
While keeping these basic items in mind, don’t forget other peripheral men’s accessories like caps, sunglasses and belts. Stick to a classic style of eyewear that suits your face shape. You can own two basic coloured leather belts, and they will go well with most of the outfits that you wear. The only thing to acknowledge is, the less the better this summer!
