Top Fashion Trends Every Guy Should Try This Summer
The sunshine has made several welcome appearances in recent weeks, and possibly getting us a little too excited and optimistic for those long summer days. As this new season approaches, it’s not just the ladies that will be asking the question ‘what am I going to wear today?’
Hot off the catwalk (pardon the pun), menswear is seeing some fresh and wearable trends serving up some serious summer inspiration. Plus with Father’s Day just around the corner, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the style conscious man in your life, check out these top trends every guy should be wearing this summer.
Classic tailoring is never far from the catwalk whatever the season, but for spring/summer, designers were showcasing an elegant yet casual vibe for the warmer months. Kim Jones wowed the runway with double-breasted style jackets for Dior. Plus Alexander McQueen took traditional pin striping to the next level.
Short shorts were the name of the game in many designer collections with some styles showing a lot of skin for the new season. Tie-dye and retro shades hit up the catwalks of Louis Vuitton and Dries Van Noten, whereas, Prada opted for neoprene bottom-skimmers to bring a new meaning to beach bum.

Bohemian style is often something reserved for the women’s collections each summer; however, this chilled seasonal aesthetic offers a cool and casual look for the style-conscious man. Straw hats and flowing separates captured the romanticism of the trend, and designers including Etro and Marni offered beautiful examples to rock the purity of this look.
The ultimate handbag
Yes you heard that right! We all know and love the traditional manbag, but this season, designers opted for handbags as the accessory of summer. Dior made a comeback with the saddlebag and reimagined it for the guys. Clutches and tassel bags also made an appearance too with handbags of different sizes perfect for a few essentials or everything and the kitchen sink.
Clashing prints and patterns
Summer is the perfect time to choose bright colours and prints, and what better way than to wear all of your favourites in one outfit. Prints and patterns that clash are in, and the runway saw several designers lead the charge in vibrant separates and spectacular eighties vibes. Versace offered the best in bold and brash looks with baroque paired with contrasting newspaper prints.
Your summer attire wouldn’t be complete without a striking pair of sandals to keep your feet looking and feeling fresh. However, designers took the traditional summer shoe up a level for the outdoorsy guy with a hiking style to offer fashion and function. Fendi strapped up with nylon-webbing, plus MSGM opted for a heavy-duty look with a must-have technical option.
Whether you’re a guy that opts for simple styling or want to take your wardrobe to another level, there is a range of trends to suit all lifestyles. Check out our up and coming sale on the 14th June to rock the hottest looks this summer.
