For those of you who are wanting to update your wardrobe with some stylish summer pieces, now is a great time to do so, as the warmer weather will have just started to roll in. When it comes to choosing garments for this summer, there are a number of noteworthy looks that have been seen across runways, featuring everything from oversized shirts to wide legged trousers to baseball caps.
While there were plenty of thigh-grazing shorts seen on the runways, this is perhaps not going to be as much of a wearable look as the knee-length styles that were also popular. The best length to go for is something that sits directly above your knee, either in a tailored cut, or a lighter, more breathable fabric, such as silk.
Wide Legged Trousers
While many may have grown fond of the skinny shapes seen in men’s trousers in recent seasons, it is now time to go in the opposite direction, opting for wide-legged styles instead. Whether with trousers or jeans, wide-legged shapes are easiest to style with a casual shirt and a pair of trainers.
From formal chinos to casual jeans, white is set to be one of the hottest colors this summer. This shade complements a variety of skin tones, and always looks great when paired with items that feature a pop of color.
Expect to see plenty of overalls in stores this summer, and they are definitely a style worth trying. The hottest colors to look out for are dark blacks and denims as well as moody greens. From Givenchy to Alexander Wang, there are some great overall styles around, and can be worn in several different ways. While Alexander Wang dressed his overall-wearing models in all black, just like the overalls themselves, other designers kept things more low-key, with a simple white t-shirt and casual shoes.
Distressed jeans have slowly been making a comeback recently, but they are set to explode in popularity this summer. From jeans that look as though they have almost been destroyed, to others that just have a few slight tears and bleached areas, the key to this look is making sure that your jeans appear to be at least somewhat lived in.
Baseball caps are one of the hottest men’s accessories to complete your look this summer, and they are completely unlike the baseball caps that you likely remember from your childhood. Instead, these styles are made from high-end, luxury fabrics, from leather to exotic animal skins, and feature contemporary design details, that make them appropriate to wear just about anywhere. Just about every designer out there has their own version of this classic accessory, so there is definitely a style out there that will suit your own personal taste.
It is often the case that summer looks for men are quite unwearable, more suited to an avant-garde runway than the streets of your average city. However, this is not the case this summer, with the top looks being ones that can be incorporated into such a huge variety of outfits.
