A Guide to the Best Summer Outfits for Men

A Guide to the Best Summer Outfits for Men
Published on March 10, 2022

Summer is finally here, and it’s time to look your best. Looking good in summer is an artform that is even more challenging than doing the same in winter. Winter, with its many layers and accessories, offers the fashionista a larger canvas to work with. But summer is hot and sweaty, so the layering goes out of the window. The challenge in summer is to do more with less, and to do that, you have to make every component of your outfit count. 

The Day-to-Day Looks — your bread and butter

Summer is the season of bright colours, which means you can afford to be a little more colourful than usual with your work outfit. If you’re the kind of person who goes into work every day and don’t have a strict formal dress code, button-down shirts are a great addition to your wardrobe in terms of mens summer fashion. Go for the ones with fun prints to show off your personality, and pair them with cotton trousers that contrast their shade. Always remember while wearing mens summer clothes, if the shirt is dark, then lighter colour pants work better and vice-versa. 

Plain t-shirts are also a great choice, especially if you want to go for a more sober look. Plainer shades are a great summer wear for men if having an important work meeting, or an event to attend. Remember to accessorize well with a classy watch and good looking belt to complete the look. A  pair of sneakers also go a long way.

For Special Occasions — how to clean up good

Now that we’ve got work out of the way, it’s time to get to the good stuff. The fun in summer outfits for men can always be found in life outside of work. We’re talking about those Sundaya afternoon picnics in the shade at the park, or those long lazy days at the beach with friends and family, or the long afternoon siesta after a heavy lunch. These are the moments of leisure and frolic you remember from summers, both as a child and an adult. 

The first item of clothing that is important for summer leisure time is a good pair of boxers. Light and breathable, boxer shorts can be worn both as innerwear and also as outerwear on certain occasions — for example, what better outfit to wear to a day at the beach than a pair of boxer shorts and a tanktop

Accessories are a key part of the summer outfit, especially if you’re going to a party or a wedding. A good pair of chinos or trousers, with a light coloured t-shirt to beat the heat can be the starting point of your outfit. Brogues and loafers are the ideal shoe choices, but trainers aren’t too far behind on the list either. Just make sure that the colours line up and you’re good to go!  casual summer outfits

The Do’s & Don’ts — Don’t worry, there aren’t too many!

There are days in the summer when the heat is absolutely bearing down upon you. We’ve all been in that situation where the effects of a long shower and a fresh outfit are completely ruined by the ten minutes of standing in the sun. Sweat is the ultimate killjoy in summer, but a few simple tips can keep you safe from the mess.

For starters, invest in vests. Yes, many of them. We know that there are some readers who might not see the logic in this. What’s the point of adding yet another layer of clothing to your body when it’s already so hot? Well, we’ve got two words for you – moisture wicking.  Vests, usually made from cotton, are prized for the super soaking properties. It wicks sweat away from your skin and the capillary action takes it to the outer side of the fabric, where it can evaporate and keep you cool. In other words — no more annoying pit stains! DaMENSCH’s Neo Skin vests offer an extra advantage in this department, because it’s made from bamboo fabric, which has more micro-pores and double the moisture wicking capabilities of cotton. Rest assured,  you can expect a cool summer if you’re wearing one of these.

The other thing to keep in mind is the colour of your clothes, especially shirts. As we’ve all learned in middle school physics, some colours absorb more heat than others. The darker the colour, the more heat it absorbs. In that sense, black is the worst colour to wear during the summer because it absorbs the most heat possible. So you want to avoid choosing darker clothes to avoid being cooked alive and go for lighter colours that reflect more light, like a light blue or an off white. Besides, summer is all about colours and happiness! It goes with the spirit of the season.

FAQs on Summer Outfits for Men:

What colors should I wear in the summer?

Light colours, always! Darker colours absorb more heat, so you want to steer clear of those. If you’re having a bad laundry day and have no choice, make sure you’re wearing a vest underneath to soak up the sweat and keep you cool. This is one of the coolest summer outfits for men.

What fabric should I choose in the summer?

Stay clear of synthetic fabrics. They don’t have the kind of moisture wicking capabilities of cotton and bamboo. Cotton and bamboo are generally the best choices, because they both soak up sweat, and have micropores which expose the water to atmosphere, allowing them to evaporate and keep you cool. Bamboo is the best mens summer fashion in terms of breathability and moisture wicking, but if you’re choosing cotton, stick with something that has longer fibres, like supima cotton.
