Men's Summer Clothing Essentials — 2019 Trends

11 June 2019

A true style playground, men’s summer fashion introduces lots of creative clothing options as well as tons of new arrivals. When the temperature rises and the sun shines its brightest, comfort and protection are key. However, since summer is also a season full of celebrations, why not enjoy having fun with your wardrobe? Here are the top trends that’ll help you find stylish warm weather clothing. 

Clothing That Says Summer

Men’s Polo Shirts

The classic polo, a timeless and iconic item, has been beautifully reworked and is now taking a top spot in fashion. Whether it’s made of cotton pique or comes in a lighter, more athletic style, its versatility is really remarkable.  

Currently, polos are coming in new cuts and textures. We love it when they have open terry collars that reminds us of beach towels and trips to the ocean. Vacation-inspired patterns and bright colors work just as well for afternoons on the green as they do for evenings with friends.

Tip: Opt for a nautical-patterned polo. This year, it reinvents itself with embroidery and color-blocked prints that reproduce maritime flags.

Shirts

Summer is a spectacular time for guys who get a kick out of playing around with prints! Select a short sleeve button up shirt decorated with tropical flowers, palm trees, pink flamingoes, or sailboats. As for sleek shirts that come in solid white, they pair easily with other pieces and add a bit of brightness your outfit. Also look for lightweight, fluid shirts, like camp shirts. They'll give your outfit a relaxed, summertime feel while still keeping you comfy.  

Jackets

To strike the right balance between being casual and chic, just slip on a light jacket.  It will look stylish paired with long pants and shorts. To stand out, pick one in a pastel. These happy hues call to mind gorgeous summer days and are a nice change from the traditional black jackets that we see so often during the rest of the year.

For maximum comfort, we recommend choosing linen. This will allow you to wear a second layer without getting too hot, since linen is a fabric that breathes and keeps you cool.

Tip: What's more, when linen is blended with other materials (like cotton, for instance), it greatly reduces the number of unwanted wrinkles and creases. This makes it perfect for travelling or for those who don't like to iron their clothes!

Shorts

Shorts are rather short this season and hit above the knee. They outline your silhouette while making you look taller. Dark and earthy tones are trendy, especially if you pair your shorts or bermudas with a paler, summery top. Elastic waistbands and built-in drawstrings offer additional comfort. For a casual and on-point outfit, wear them with strappy sandals.

Tip: To dress your shorts up a bit, add a belt and tuck your shirt into your waistband. 

Step into Summer

Loafers and Slip-On Shoes

When it comes to men’s summer shoes, these are the best of the best! Ultra-distinguished, loafers will look terrific with all your elegant outfits. As for slip-ons, they’ll be your comfy go-tos on more relaxed occasions.

Tip: For an impeccable look, wear them without socks. You can also opt for shorter ped socks, but nothing should show above the top of the shoe!

Sandals

Sandals aren’t only for pool days! While slides are still a must-have, multi-strap sandals have paved their way to the top. In addition to being extremely comfortable, styles by Teva, Birkenstock, and Dr. Martens stand out for their sleek and utilitarian design.

Sneakers

In summer, every type of sneaker will work wonderfully with your wardrobe. White, minimalist sneakers suit more formal occasions, while colorful pairs with whimsical motifs are ideal when you’re craving something bright and creative.

Tip: To be bold and ultra-trendy, wear them with longer socks.


Accessories: The Finishing Touch 

Sunglasses

When you wear aviator sunglasses, you'll exude courage and confidence.  This ageless and utilitarian style is constantly being reworked and will always be on point. For the ultimate look, pick up a pair with thin metal frames, like the ones George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio wear so well.

We also love round sunglasses that feature retro-inspired frames! Coming in plastic or acetate with colored or mirror lenses, they are an excellent accessory to have on hand on the sunniest days of summer.

If you love luxury, take a look at the exquisite designs of our brand-name sunglasses. Labels like Ray-Ban, Matt & Nat, and Oakley guarantee that you get exceptional quality and maximum UV protection.

Hats and Caps

Whether you prefer a fedora, a Panama hat, or a boater, you’ll find the perfect headgear from our selection of hats. This summer, straw is absolutely everywhere! Dark, light, or decorated with a wide ribbon, straw hats can be spotted on the patio of every restaurant. This accessory will protect you from the sun while giving you a totally trendy look. 

Show your allegiance to a particular brand or sports team by wearing their logo with pride. Caps and bucket hats will not only shade your face and eyes from the sun’s bright rays, but they’ll also fine-tune your look while showing your preferences and personality.

Belt Bags

Belt bags are once again a major must because of their of style and practicality. Wear a clear or canvas one around your waist to create a casual vibe. Chicer belt bags that come in leather or other fine fabrics can be worn over your shoulder. No matter what way you carry it, you’ll never want to be without this versatile, utilitarian bag. 

Braided Belts

We just love these braided belts that give you the urge to travel. In brown or navy blue, they’ll pair perfectly with your pants and Bermudas as well as your lightweight shirts. 

Men’s Bracelets

Sometimes forgotten or neglected, jewellery can make all the difference. A perfectly chosen bracelet adds an elegant and masculine touch to any outfit. Made of wood, metal, leather, or woven from ship’s rigging, men’s bracelets that come in rugged materials will give you a carefully considered look.
