With summer finally arriving slowly but surely, it’s time to enjoy some sunshine as the temperatures climb, even here in the UK. This probably means that you’re on the lookout for some great summer styles to add to your wardrobe, whether you’re staying at home or jetting off elsewhere. Dressing for the season ensures you’re right on trend, as well as embracing the weather as much as possible!

Finding the right summer styles can feel like a minefield, especially when it comes to men’s clothing; with so many different designs and trends to hunt through, it can be difficult to find the clothes that reflect your personal style. So, if you’ve been browsing your favourite brands trying to find those key pieces, here is some inspiration to help you on your search.

Some of the best summer styles for women can be found right here to get you started on the right track.

Coloured chinos

A much lighter alternative to jeans or trousers, chinos offer a smart-casual look that is perfect for a variety of occasions. A fresh take on your off-duty wardrobe, chinos are often seen in eye-catching shades such as khaki, navy or tobacco orange.

For modern dressing, chinos are a must-have through the summer months. Whether you prefer a tailored fit or a more regular fit, chinos can do it all. Wear with your favourite t-shirt, a smart shirt or a polo for a well-presented appearance.

Striped tops

Stripes have made a comeback for SS18 and it’s not hard to see why. A great alternative to the usual floral prints that are usually seen everywhere this season, stripes are naturally flattering. Making them a go-to print for the summer, stripes are versatile and work particularly well on a t-shirt.

Ideal for wearing all summer long, striped tops are a style that need to be added to your shopping list.

Summer shirts

When it’s warm outside, the last thing you want to be wearing is an uncomfortable, long sleeved shirt. Consider branching out to summery designs; this is the perfect chance to add some short sleeve shirts to your wardrobe.

Keep it simple with block colours such as light pink or pastel blue for the summer months, or be a little more adventurous. Printed shirts are a great way to add some more interesting designs to your clothing collection. Wave effect, floral and dip dye are all incredibly popular for this season.

Trusty jumpers

We all know that British summers aren’t always blessed with the sun, and even abroad the temperatures can drop at night. That’s why you should always make sure there’s a stylish, practical jumper to hand. Stick to something lightweight that will provide an extra layer should it be necessary.

Grey marl or navy work wonders when it comes to men’s jumpers, with a simple design that does the job. Throw it on over your t-shirt and shorts and continue enjoying the outdoors!
