Summer has well and truly arrived, making now the perfect time to rethink your wardrobe for the season. With a variety of new trends to try, which are worth investing in to shake up your summer style? Read on to discover five summer style updates for men…


1.Invest in a pair of round sunglasses


Sunglasses get an old-school update for this season, with round frames being the shades of choice for the summer. As seen on Kit Harrington and Josh Hartnett, aviators with the classic double brow bar have been updated to feature round frames and lenses.


Round shades are timeless, so if they suit your face shape, don’t be afraid to invest in a quality pair as they won’t date quickly.



2.Introduce colourful or patterned socks


Summer means shorts season, so why not make a feature of your socks now that they can be more visible? ‘No show’ socksare officially a thing of the past, as men are embracing making their socks part of their style. Choose to make your socks a statement, by going for bold and bright pairs. Ideal for teaming with trainers, pumps and loafers, colourful and patterned socks should become part of your uniform this summer. As far as we’re concerned, the brighter and bolder the better.


3.Experiment with printed shirts


Shirts have been updated for the summer with a range of unique and sometimes quirky prints. While plain shirts are still great for work and special occasions, the everyday shirt presents the perfect opportunity to be a little playful with your style choices.


Ideal for wearing on holiday, on weekends and even for work if your office doesn’t follow a dress code, add interest to your look with a printed shirt. From abstract prints and polka dots, to oversized prints and florals, anything goes with this trend. Think cuban style and go for short sleeves to stay cool in the summer heat.


4.Be bold with statement t-shirts


Slogan and band T-shirts are back with a bang. This summer has a bit of a retro feel to it, with some much loved looks from the past firmly resurfacing. A statement t-shirt is the perfect off-duty style. Go for a band t-shirt from your youth, or make a statement with typography. Team your statement T with chino shorts and loafers, or straight leg jeans and trainers.


5.Switch dark jeans and chinos for white


While they might not be the most practical, they can look super stylish with a classic feel. Instead of going for your trusty dark blue jeans, mix things up this year and choose white jeans or chinos instead. Ideal for achieving a ‘clean cut’ and timeless kind of look, team white jeans or chinos with a simple blue shirt rolled up at the sleeves and with an open collar, or with a grey t-shirt and blue denim jacket. For a more casual feel, roll your white jeans up once or twice and style with loafers.


While there’s always a wide variety of trends each summer, the above are the best style updates for men as these trends are set to last well into summer and beyond. To update your socks for the season, try our sock subscription service, and get your hands on bold and bright socks every month.
