Summer will be here before we know it and that means that you may need to start considering what exactly your summer wardrobe looks like. After all, while you may have rocked some amazing men’s styles last summer, trends have probably changed since then. This means that you need to take a good hard look at what you have in your closet and whether or not it will be appropriate for the hotter months of 2017. Find out precisely what you should be holding onto, getting rid of and buying new this summer so that you can be the very best dressed everywhere you go.
Clean out your closet.
This is one of the most common pieces of advice that we give to our customers. This is because it is unlikely you will feel the need to buy new pieces for you wardrobe if there is no room in your closet. This is the perfect time to remind you that just because your shelves and hangers seem to be filled to the brim, doesn’t mean that everything you own is still in style. Take a weekend morning to really look through the clothing you currently own and determine whether or not you will ever be excited to wear certain clothes again. If the idea of putting something on doesn’t make you look forward to how you will look in it, chances are it’s time to donate it.
Understand the importance of layering.
One of the aspects of men’s fashion that many struggle with is layering. Especially in the summertime, it is often hard to figure out what methods should be used in order to layer properly. Finding the right materials is, of course, the main key during the summer months. However, a man who is truly a summer style icon knows how to properly layer to give themselves a sophisticated look. You may also want to consider reverse layering which means you wear longer layers under shorter ones for a fashion-forward appearance.
Try new things with your sleeves
If you are someone who doesn’t normally fuss with their sleeves, it’s time to try something new. While you may not wear a certain button down shirt anymore because you don’t like where the cuffs land, simply rolling them up could make all the difference. Even certain short-sleeved shirts can make a major fashion statement when you roll up the sleeves.
Ditch the socks
Summer is no time to be walking around in calf-high socks. While it may have been considered unfashionable in the past to not wear socks with dress shoes, this is no longer the case. On the other hand, you may not want to get rid of the socks entirely as you could find yourself suffering from a number of blisters. As a compromise, we would suggest that you wear invisible socks with your dress shoes. This will looks great, feel great and also prevent your shoes from becoming extremely smelly during those sticky summer days.
Be bold with patterns
Often men find it hard to feel confident wearing patterns. However, there is no better time to do so than in the summer months. Bold and colorful prints are perfect to wear to backyard barbecues or weddings. Don’t simply stick to solid colors. Instead, step out of your comfort zone and rock a patterned button down to ensure you will receive plenty of style compliments all summer long.
