It is easy to dress for chilly weather, with many footwear options, textures, and the ability to layer adds another stylish depth.
Summer outfitting, on the other hand, might be more difficult. Barbecues, beer gardens, and football matches are just a few of the benefits of hotter weather. Still, it also means that wardrobe options are severely limited, especially for men.
The most important thing is to stay cool, but looking stylish is a close second. Fortunately, there are a few tried-and-true warm-weather ensembles that check both categories. If you master these go-to summer outfits, you'll never be stuck in a style rut again.
Summer Smart Work Outfits For Men
Most men are required to wear suits to work, even in the heat, so avoid three-piece suits and wear as few layers as possible to prevent overheating on the tube.
If you absolutely must wear a full suit, start with the shirt and trousers and add the remainder of the outfit when you arrive. This will save you from overheating and getting sweaty on your way to work.
Wear lighter colours for your smarter apparel, such as grey or navy for suits and white or light blue for summer shirts; avoid wearing black because it will make you feel hotter as black absorbs more light and heat compared to the lighter colours.
If you're lucky enough to work in a more relaxed environment, opt for an Oxford shirt or polo shirt, chinos or light pants, and a pair of brogues or loafers. This look keeps you looking professional while also preparing you for the several beer gardens and barbecues you could potentially be attending after work.
You could also choose long shorts that will keep your boss happy — neutral, slender, and sophisticated. To complete the outfit, add formal shoes and a buttoned-up shirt. You'll look work-appropriate but still give you that summer-cool effect.
Date Night Outfit For Men
A casual drink outside, a dinner by the river, a trip to the zoo, or an outdoor cinema are all possibilities for summer dates. However, you want to look reasonably smart and well put together for your summer date but not too much; you want to appear as though you tried but not too hard. No one said being a man and dressing nice in summer was easy.
For your date night, try a linen shirt with jeans or chinos, a short sleeve polo shirt with jeans and light-coloured Chelsea boots, a blazer with a vintage t-shirt and shoes, or a t-shirt, chinos, and a denim jacket.
Summer Wedding Outfits
Summer is a season when there's a wedding every other week. There are a lot of outside summer weddings. So, there's a high possibility you'll be out in the sun for a while, so the key is to dress light and loose.
Suppose you're not too close to the groomsmen and only attend the reception. In that case, you can easily get away with dressing down and avoid wearing a full suit. If you can, wear a light-coloured shirt and trousers or a blazer jacket with a t-shirt instead of a shirt, which you can pair with more casual shoes, such as trainers or loafers.
If you're closer to the bride and groom, you should dress smartly while still allowing for some breathing room in the heat (they are long days, after all).
Choose a light-coloured suit. Summer is a great time to experiment with different colour jackets and trousers, an unbuttoned white or light blue shirt, and a pair of espadrilles or boat shoes. You can usually wear a waistcoat, shirt, and trousers without the jacket, and if you don't have to, avoid wearing a tie!
Casual Day Outfits
Most of us prefer to wear as little as possible when the sun is shining, so a t-shirt, fitted shorts or light, loose jeans, and a pair of trainers will be your go-to outfit. Keep your colours bright and avoid wearing full black in the sun at all costs!
If you want to dress up a bit, use a loose checkered shirt or polo shirt, tailored shorts, and loafers or trainers as your go-to casual wear when you're not at work!
Now is the perfect time to pull out your accessories! If you're conscious of the outfit needing a little something extra, a baseball cap, sunglasses, and a watch will make stylish additions.
We hope you’ve found our recommendations for summer outfits useful. Summer outfits for men are essentially about being comfortable and wearing loose, light outfits that are right for the occasion.
