Men’s Summer Trends

I’m sure all you ladies out there will agree there is nothing more attractive than a well-dressed guy. Whether it is at the park, the mall, or the beach, well-dressed guys seem to be everywhere this summer! You can find a ton of information about women’s trends, but I would like to give some attention to the summer trends for men. Some men’s fashion trends are similar to women’s trends this season, but men do have a few exclusively male trends that are all their own. So, if you have a guy in your life that is open to some fashion advice, go to the mall and try some of these great summer trends for men.

From the runway to retail, it is evident the preppy look is a staple of this season’s fashion for both men and women. Compared to the muted color schemes of last summer, this summer brings bold colors and patterns to men’s fashion. This season, the runway has been rich with structured pants and more importantly, blazers that can transition from office to night out in a snap. Men’s top options include button downs in a variety of patterns including plaid, madras, and stripes and lightweight fabrics, like linen.

Structured bottoms in bright colors can be seen from high-end designers like Versace to retailers like H&M and J. Crew. Cargo shorts have been replaced in favor of vibrant shorts that hit just above the knee in prints like seersucker and plaid. Men’s popular footwear options are espadrilles and any other flat-soled shoe, like Sperry Topsiders or Vans for an edgier look, reinstating the theme of a comfortable and casual look for this summer season.
