Summer is the most sociable time of year, with all sorts of events and occasions to attend. This often means having to plan ahead and put together various looks to suit everything you get invited to this summer. For some, many of the events that you go to might be within the same circles, so this limits the opportunity to re-wear certain outfits.
When it comes to creating stylish looks for summer occasions, the key is to invest in a few versatile pieces that you can mix and match. Read on to discover our guide to men’s fashion and styling for key summer occasions…
Summer weddings present a fantastic opportunity when it comes to men’s fashion. With so many more options than a winter wedding, you can be more creative with your look and go for something stylish and smart that reflects your personality too.
Try a simple light grey suit with a tailored cut. Wear the blazer open with a crisp white shirt with the top button undone. Finish the look with a pair of loafers and add a pop of colour with a bright pair of socks and a pocket square in the same colour palette.
Garden parties and BBQs call for more laid back style than a summer wedding might. For really casual BBQs round your friends, a simple pair of straight leg jeans and a t-shirt will do, but for garden parties and BBQs that are for special occasions such as a birthday or an engagement, step up your style game.
Take the same grey blazer that you invested in for the summer wedding, and pair with straight leg jeans in dark blue. Roll the jeans up once or twice and go for a simple short sleeve polo shirt in white to wear under the blazer. For shoes go for loafers, as these are a little more relaxed than brogues. Add interest with a pair of patterned socks in a colour that suits your style.
For most families, a summer picnic is a fairly casual affair and just a good excuse to get everyone together to catch up. If the weather is particularly warm and you’re going to be outside most of the day, go for a pair of chino shorts in an on-trend colour such as khaki, navy or grey. Team with a short sleeved button up shirt – go for a simple colour palette and a pattern, such as stripes or an oversized print. Team with white basketball shoes and a bright pair of socks.
Whether it’s date night you’re out with the guys, you’ll always feel more confident on a night out when you know you’re looking your best. Take the patterned short sleeve shirt from your family picnic look, and team with the straight leg jeans from your BBQ style. Roll the jeans up once or twice and style with brogues or loafers and your trusty bold sock.
By investing in a few key on-trend key timeless pieces this season, you’ll have everything you need to create different looks for different events. When it comes to men’s fashion, this summer presents the perfect opportunity to try new styles and step outside your comfort zone.
