It’s an undeniable fact that women get most of the focus when it comes to changes in fashion trends across the seasons, but men’s fashions can be just as important, especially in summer.
Knowing how to dress for the summer can be a challenge, especially when you’re trying to find the line between being comfortable in the heat and wearing something appropriate for the occasion.
To help keep you feeling cool while also looking cool, here’s a peek at what some trends for summer 2015 promise for men.
Denim Is In
As with other fashion phases throughout the year, denim is a trend you should be on the look-out for this summer as well. Luckily for most guys, it’s easy to include denim in your wardrobe due to its versatility, utility, and accessibility.
And according to Jeremy Langmead at Esquire, you might want to try adding some denim jackets to go with the denim trousers or shorts you already planned to be sporting this summer. Langmead advises looking for denim jackets that either have a longer fit, a looser cut, or a softer touch in order to make the most of this excellent material.
Pop With Prints
This trend may be a little more of a stretch for the average male, but prints are coming back into full swing this summer, especially colorful floral prints. If you were ever going to take the plunge and try a print, summer is the perfect time to do it.
It’s a time when people tend to take themselves less seriously, which allows you a little more freedom to play around with designs you otherwise would have shied away from. If you’re not ready to make a big splash with prints yet, Dalys 1895 suggests pairing a loud print with some of your more classic staples.
This will help you dip your toe in the water and see if you’re comfortable incorporating this style into your wardrobe this summer.
One of the challenges with summer fashion is dressing for the workplace without ending up baking in the heat all day. To address this challenge, Billy Webb from FashionBeans.com suggests adding stripes to your wardrobe—whether you’re planning to go to the office or the driving range.
The great thing about dressing with stripes is that you have all kinds of options for ways to incorporate this trend into your own personal style. You can get striped shirts, pants, shorts, hats, bags—you name it!
Webb adds that you can make yourself stand out even more by going with a thicker stripe or stripes that feature less common colors. However you choose to use these fashion trends in your wardrobe this summer, just remember to have fun and make each piece you wear truly reflect your unique style and personality.
These fashion trends are all about helping men to feel more comfortable in the heat of summer by dressing to impress regardless of the situation in which they find themselves. So stock your closet full of denim, prints, and stripes this summer and get the most out of this season’s impending trends for men.[amazon template=iframe image&asin=1618371843]
