5 Summer Menswear Fashion Trends

A pair of colourful swim shorts is an absolute must-have…

The first fashion trend you should keep up with this summer is related to swimwear. To be more precise – swim shorts that are an absolute must-have for millions of men from all across the globe. Speaking of this year’s trends, we have to say one thing – the more colourful, the better! That’s right, so don’t be afraid to go completely crazy with different shades and patterns and opt for vibrant swim shorts that will catch everyone’s attention. Just be sure not to pick a pair that’s too tight and digs into your belly. That will look super unflattering, so stay away from it and you won’t make a mistake!

 

… As well as a pair of simple yet effective white sneakers

Speaking of footwear appropriate for summer, is there anything better than simple yet effective white sneakers? We don’t think so (of course, flip-flops are an exception)! If you’re wondering about what makes such sneakers so special, the answer is: their versatility. First of all, you can wear them on literally any occasion you want – from a casual lunch with your pals to a romantic date night with your darling. Besides that, white sneakers can be combined with every piece you want – stylish T-shirts, trendy flannels, comfy trousers, your favourite pair of jeans – possibilities are truly endless. Give them a fair shot and you’ll do a great job!

 

Stylish accessories are inevitable, too

Truth be told, no clothing combo can be complete without stylish accessories. If you agree with this claim, make sure to accessorize like a true fashion god this summer! To begin with, get an elegant men’s card holder in the first place. This is a fantastic way to show that you’re a real professional – even when you’re on vacation! Anchor leather bracelets are the next must-have when it comes to accessories. Even though many men think that they can’t pull off such pieces, trust us when we say that everyone can do it! It’s because they are so bold and beautiful at the same time. Lastly, don’t forget to find a perfect pair of sunglasses that flawlessly fits your face shape. Once that’s done, you’re ready for summer!

 

Wide trousers will be all the rage this year

If you’re all about keeping up with the latest fashion trends this summer, you must definitely get a pair of wide trousers, too! These are absolutely inevitable as almost every menswear designer has come up with ultra-wide trousers this year! From Saint Laurent to Gucci and Hermes – all of them feature such a piece in their collections, so all you need to do is to choose a colour and the preferred style. Apart from the sporty pieces ideal for all active guys, there are also cargo and tracksuit-inspired trousers that will help you feel super comfy this summer. Just slip into your brand new pair of wide trousers and you’ll see what we were talking about!

 

Don’t skip the bold neon shades either

Last but certainly not least, neon shades are making a huge comeback this year. Even though these aren’t the easiest colours to pull off, it doesn’t mean that you should run away from them at all costs. Just remember this – if you get them right, they will work for you! Of course, head-to-toe neon outfits aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. Not many people can rock them confidently simply because they are too flashy and over-the-top. It’s exactly why you should opt for a piece or two in the same shade, such as a T-shirt or sneakers, and tone down the rest of the combo. That’s the key to success if you ask us. However, if you still think that you can pull off a full-on neon outfit – go for it! We’re happy to see a confident fashion king!

 

Each of these five menswear fashion trends is super special and worth your attention, so don’t skip them this summer if you want to step up your fashion game. All you have to do is to stick to our tips and you’ll do a fantastic job. It’s a promise!
