It’s a popular myth that following patterns diligently equals looking nice. This, in our view, is not the case. Following any seasonal pattern blindly is a prescription for disaster when it comes to fashion. Furthermore, it is a simple way to go bankrupt.
One of the overarching themes of the last five years has been a regression to the 1970s, and it shows no signs of slowing down in 2021. It takes the form of floral prints a la grandma’s curtains for the spring/summer season, which is really a lot more wearable than it seems.
Small shorts aren’t for everybody. D&G, Gucci, and a slew of other high-fashion houses, to be sure. Longer, wider shorts will be back this season, echoing a bigger trend that has been occurring in all aspects of menswear for some time.
If the decade progresses, breezy silhouettes will begin to outnumber sleek, form-fitting cuts. If you’re dreaming of going for a stroll on the wild side, our first piece of advice is to go to the nearest tailor. Relaxed cuts will also be attractive, but only if they are correctly fitted.
When you’re in a casual setting, a pair of athletic shorts, whether mesh or sweat, is a good option. Don’t limit yourself to wearing them with tees and tanks because athleisure is a true fashion staple these days. Experiment with them to see if you can incorporate them into your social attire. Stop baggy and long shorts as far as possible.
On a Thursday, maybe, a man will grow tired of wearing cool t-shirts to work, but the workplace isn’t formal enough for a full-fledged button-up. Fortunately, there is a piece of men’s wear that is sometimes forgotten for circumstances like this: the polo shirt.
One of this summer’s biggest men’s fashion trends is a tricky one to pull off. Get it right and you’re king of the Riviera; get it wrong and you’re Andy Murray on match day.
Despite the risks, going all white is one of the best men’s style moves you can make. It’s also a sure-fire way to keep cool in the heat. Try pairing a crisp white T-shirt with matching chino shorts and a pair of tonal leather sneakers. If it’s all looking too much, throw a navy overshirt on top to tone it down.
