Men’s fashion, it’s the unwanted second child of the sartorial world when compared to ladies’ fashion. But just like that second child will spend his life trying to live up to the elder sibling, men’s fashion is never going to stop vying for your attention. And it’s working! At least on me.
As the mercury rises and the calendar turns to summer, men’s fashion trends are adapting in turn.
How can you creep, unnoticed into the fashion vanguard? Just stick to these four trends this summer and you should fit right in.
Think less John Stockton, more Magnum PI. Magnum’s bland tones have no place in this trend, though; bright colors abound. Prada is one of many high-end fashion houses featuring short shorts this summer. For the more money-conscious among you, try Topman.
Seriously. As long as you do it right, and not like a dad, no one will be able to make fun of you for your socks and sandals combo this summer. Versace and Kenzo have made sure of it. But you can’t just slide your Champion socks into Old Navy flip-flops, unfortunately. You’ll want something like this Paul Smith pair, combined with a cashmere sock.
Even though the temperature is getting warmer, don’t go denuding your face just yet. Beards are here to stay. But you need to take care of your hirsute visage if it’s going to be in style. Whether you’re sporting an extended goatee, a Van Dyke, something more trim (like a chinstrap), or a full-fledged Garibaldi, employ beard soap, oils, and wax to keep it looking deloused. Men’s Health has a handy list of grooming products to keep you looking like Drake compared to your roommate’s Zach Galifianakis.
Jeans: they’re every guy’s fallback. Ok, not every guy. There are also the truly slovenly who retreat to sweatpants when they can’t muster any clothing creativity.
This summer, when evening rolls around and the heat dissipates, you’ll want some distressed denim to throw on. You don’t need to go high-fashion; you can find reasonable options from Calvin Klein and Levi’s. You’ll want to steer clear of anything too cheap when it comes to distressed jeans, though. It’s very easy to turn a sexy rip into a gaping hole with one misplaced foot. Make sure you’re getting a pair with some durability.
