Life is a beach this summer and men’s fashion trends prove it. The look for this summer is easy, breezy and cool. Whether a man lives by the beach or not, he can look like he’s just fresh from the surf or heading off to a tropical paradise. For both work and casual, companies such as Vinyard Vines Clothing offer separates that are inspired by the ocean, beach holidays and a relaxed lifestyle. Here are the top five trends for men’s summer fashion:
This summer is the time for all men to embrace the pastel palette. If men knew just how great light pink looks on them, they wouldn’t resist its powers. All colors of the pastel rainbow are vibrant and glowing in men’s summer wardrobe. Plaids are also hot and often come in slightly darker tones against a white background. Also, khaki and light tan shades are very popular for men’s shorts,slacks and mens shoes.
THE CLASSIC WHITE SHIRT
This is a look that will never go out of style. The classic and crisp white button-down shirt is seen once again in the summer collections of the top design houses. Always stylish with surf shorts, casual pants or jeans, the classic white shirt has a way of making every man look like he’s worth a fortune.
Vinyard Vines Clothing has mastered the art of the surf short. The best length for a man’s short is slightly above the knee and cut so that it won’t flair out too much or hug his leg too tightly. This company’s surf short is just right. They are available in all colors and are also available in a plaid print. All men should own at least two or three pairs for this summer.
UPDATED FLIP FLOP
It is likely that the world of casual fashion will never see the death of the beloved flip-flop. However, today’s man prefers a flip-flop that is a step up to the one-inch rubber slip-on from the seventies. Today’s flip-flop has a slight arch and supports the ball of the foot. These advances in design make the flip-flop more of a shoe than a slip-on.
Just because a man has to wear a tie to work each day doesn’t mean he can’t have some fun with it. Highly fashionable ties are extremely well made but also lighthearted in their pattern. There is nothing more chic than an elegant 100% silk tie with a small blue whale pattern.
Just because it is summer doesn’t mean that men are allowed to slack on their fashion. Summer may bring hot weather, but that doesn’t mean only flip flops and t-shirts. Take the time to look in to the aforementioned style tips, and be sure to style yourself appropriately during the summer season.
