Summer Essentials For Him
Summer’s here, so it’s time to start dressing for the season. Most men find it tricky to stay cool, comfortable and on trend in warm weather. No matter whether you’re jetting off on holiday or sticking around for barbecues, beer gardens and days out, our Summer Essentials guide will keep you on track with what to wear.
Check out our best selection of men’s shoes, shorts, polo shirts, and more to freshen up your look and get a smart summer style this season.
Men’s polo shirts
The perfect way to relax your appearance and still look dressed up: men’s polo shirts are perfect for summer. Go for a bright, attractive colour that looks great on holiday in the sun with a pair of light-coloured shorts or chinos.
Or try classic shades like grey, navy and white to match with a pair of jeans that you can wear on cooler days at home.
Our men’s polo shirts are laidback and summery, while the buttoned collar and breast pocket detailing gives it a smart-casual twist for summer nights out.
Our men’s shorts are summer must-haves. Every man’s wardrobe should have at least a few pairs of shorts to get him through the British summer, and they’re a definite summer essential if you’re heading abroad for a few weeks! The men’s shorts we have here come in a range of fabrics and colours, so we’ve picked out a few of our most popular and fashionable pairs for you to take a look at.
If you want something for barbecues, garden get-togethers, or kick-abouts in the park; throw on a pair of cargo shorts in a neutral colour like navy or khaki. These men’s shorts go with pretty much anything, and look particularly good with a casual t-shirt or loose-fit vest.
For something more formal that you can wear to enjoy your evening meal and drinks on holiday, try a pair of light cotton men’s shorts with patterned lining. These have a more formal look to them and the breathable fabric helps keep you cool and comfy — especially with an open-collar shirt like the ones we have below.
A pair of premium quality men’s shorts is an excellent investment for any man during summer and you can team up your selection with a casual belt in your choice of colour, style and material to put a personal spin on the outfit.
A casual shirt is an easy way to take an informal outfit and give it a lift for when you have to dress up in summer. Our range of men’s half-sleeved shirts are the cooler option and they come in lots of different patterns and colours, so you should find it easy to match your favourite with a pair of shorts and shoes. Plain pastel colours are very popular for men this season and the lighter shade works with your half-sleeve design to keep you from getting too hot in the sun.
Also right on trend are checked-pattern men’s shirts. The bolder the better. So, go for contrasting colours like red and white, blue and yellow or pink and black. Then, wear a pair of beige of grey cotton shorts to bring out the different hues in your shirt.
For summer nights at home when the temperature starts to dip, it’s always handy to have a few decent long-sleeved shirts, too. Still casual, we recommend going for a cool blue tone and pairing it with brown chinos or cord trousers for a comfy, low-key look.
There’s no point getting your summer clothes sorted if you’re going to forget about footwear. Men’s shoes are the make or break when it comes to looking good this summer, and this season there’s a mix of choices for keeping your feet looking and feeling great in the heat.
Top summer trends in men’s shoes are moccasins and loafers. These are versatile enough to be both formal and casual, which makes them ideal for saving space in your suitcase. Dress them up with a pair of tan, slim-fit trousers and a long-sleeved shirt, or go for the laidback look by wearing them with chinos and a t-shirt.
Our men’s deck shoes also give off that summer vibe with a casual look and comfy fit that you can slip on and off easily. Deck shoes look great with shorts and a shirts and many men prefer the lace-up feature for added foot support and stability.
The typical summer men’s shoe, men’s sandals are perfectly designed to look good and handle heat when you just want to throw on something casual for heading to the pool or beach. Go for a toe-post design for maximum breathability or try a pair with Velcro straps for a more secure fit — both match cargo shorts, baggy vests and other casual summer clothes perfectly.
