CASUAL SUMMER OUTFIT IDEAS FOR MEN

by michel messarra in Uncategorized

There are two types of people in the world – the ones who pay attention to their summer attire and want every piece of their outfit to match the weather outside, and those who do not really care about what they’re going to wear. Well, regardless of the group of people you fit in, you might find this article quite helpful. Fall is just around the corner, which means that you only have so little time to show your fashion skills and declare yourself as the fashion king of summer. But worry not, in order to be fashionable, you don’t have to break the bank, nor to buy high fashion pieces that will leave everyone breathless. There is a chance for you to look very dapper and quite amazing with what you have in the closet, even nice sports t-shirts, or by simply purchasing several simple items. Take a look:

Sporty yet amazing

First and foremost, you have to familiarize yourself with the trend of athleisure, but we believe that you already know what this is. For those of you who don’t, athleisure is a trend that combines formal clothing and the best sportswear, making it possible for you to go to the club by wearing shorts, a nice, monochromatic tee, a formal blazer and a pair of very sporty sneakers. This trend has been around for quite some time, and it doesn’t seem it will go away anytime soon. The good thing is that you can combine all these items in fall and winter (minus the shorts – you will substitute them with either jeans, pants or a nice pair of sweatpants).

Wanna look dapper?

On the other hand, you might decide on rocking a more formal style, which can look pretty awesome in the summertime as well. Note that summer is a season during which you do not have so much space to show plenty of amazing items – you’re a guy, so 90% of the time, you will be wearing shorts and a tee. That’s why the key lies in the accessories. If you want to show your dapper style during summertime, it would be an amazing idea to fascinate people with money clips for men or by simply adding a stylish watch to the combination. Money clips are a great idea for everyone who’s tired of carrying a bag for only two items. As a final touch, choose a summery cologne; one with citrus or floral notes is the best option.

 

Why not edgy?

Being edgy in male fashion is a double-edged sword (pun intended) as such a look can either make or break your outfit. One of the biggest trends that 2020 saw is the appearance of matching tops and bottoms in the same color or pattern (also known as double-up). This means that if you see swimwear and a t-shirt of the same pattern, you will be able to combine them even though this particular outfit would have looked ridiculous a couple of years ago. However, bear in mind that you should only opt for this step if you have the top and the bottom of exactly the same shade (if it’s monochromatic) or the same pattern. Matching two different floral patterns can, for instance, turn out very bad.

 

So, what’s the moral of the story? You can look amazing in the summertime if you pay attention to the details that make a good summer combination. These include colors (always go with monochromatic clothes if you have the chance to), and carefully choosing the items that you will put on yourself. Choose a white sneaker and dude, you’re very good to go!
