Summer is the time of year when outfits become stripped back and layering becomes a thing of the past (at least, for a little while). There are plenty of staple pieces that should form part of every man’s wardrobe, but injecting a little bit of style and on-trend pieces is a must when it comes to looking and feeling your best during the summer months.
It’s important that the fashion pieces you do pick are done so with some consideration for the weather, as well as your own personal style. With this in mind, here are 5 summer 2021 fashion trends for men.
Sunglasses are a must during the summer, but statement sunglasses provide your outfit with a little more pizzaz! Around spring/summertime, the big designers and fashion houses unveil their latest collections and sunglasses often form part of these collections. Statement sunglasses are often big and pack a statement, but if you’re wanting something a little more classic and paired back, then you can’t go wrong with the classic aviator or wayfarer style!
This summer is set to be slightly different from the ones before, thanks to the pandemic and restrictions. Long gone are the days when the only things you’d need to take with you on a day out were your wallet, phone and sunglasses. Now, face masks and coverings are a must and, with hot weather on the way, choosing a facemask for summer which is lightweight, but provides plenty of coverage is a must. Look for materials such as silk as opposed to heavy, thick cotton, or try to choose one which comes with filters.
After a year of staying at home, you’d think people would be over the loungewear trend. However, it looks like this trend is one which is here to stay, even during the summer. We all know how unpredictable the weather can be in the UK and some days you might need to put something a little warmer and comfier on.
Mens streetwear has been hugely popular in recent years and this is a trend which is set to continue, with plenty of loungewear offerings too. Plain tracksuits are a must, as the set can be worn together as a full outfit, joggers can be paired with a t-shirt or the sweatshirt can be put with jeans to create some different looks and outfits.
Florals have been huge in recent catwalks and shows and it is set to show no signs of slowing down this summer. Everyone from Tom Ford to Burberry have been creating must-have floral pieces for men and the trend is actually more wearable than it sounds. From floral swim shorts to graphic floral tees, the trend has touched almost every fashion garment in recent months so there is plenty to choose from.
However, if you want to embrace the trend in a more muted style, then a well-tailored floral shirt looks great with suits, chinos or pants, whilst a casual shirt looks great with chino shorts for warmer days. When wearing a piece of floral clothing, try to keep the rest of your outfit muted and plain to really let the print shine.
