Balmy summer days are upon us, and with the rising temperature comes the freedom to shed those heavy layers. Men’s summer fashion is front and centre. As the COVID-19 restrictions loosen and the city slowly regains momentum, you’ll notice yourself wanting to step out more. And while wearing a mask is still non-negotiable, your choice of outfit definitely isn’t.
From the runway-approved tie-dye trend to the summer-appropriate floral print, we bring you men’s summer fashion inspirations from leading celebrities LeBron James, Timothée Chalamet, Harry Styles and more. Expect experimental prints, covetable sneakers and monochrome suiting taking up space in your wardrobe this season. And if there’s one piece you can never go wrong with, it’s the good ol’ baseball cap.
Scroll ahead to glean some sartorial inspiration for summer from seven of the most stylish men who’re dialing it up a notch:
LeBron James in head-to-toe white
Dress to impress in an all-white outfit with celebrity style cues from LeBron James. The NBA player keeps it simple in an easy-breezy shirt teamed with ankle-grazing denim and pristine white sneakers. A black patent leather carry-all successfully breaks the monotony. Not only is this look effortless to put together, but the choice of colour is ideal for summer.
Timothée Chalamet in hot pink denim
From Dior to Loewe, the spring/summer men’s runway 2020 was infused with various iterations of the colour pink, from delicate pastel to eye-catching neon. Timothée Chalamet’s take on it, however, is somewhere in the middle. The Interstellar actor recently opted for a pair of straight-fit jeans in a dramatic hot pink hue. A nonchalant white shirt tones down the vibrant outfit, while a pair of Nike’s dad sneakers adds dimension.
Odell Beckham Jr in cobalt blue kicks
The coloured sneaker, a men’s summer fashion staple. Take notes from Odell Beckham Jr, who recently paired a reimagined version of the Nike Air Force 1 in tones of blue and red. He complements it with baggy cargo pants in navy blue, a basic white tee and a floral-printed jacket. The NFL player looks ready to usher in summer.
Harry Styles in a floral printed shirt
Henry Golding in monochrome suiting
Victor Cruz in a tie-dye jacket
Tom Holland in easy-to-wear athleisure
If you don’t want to put any thought into picking your men’s summer fashion outfit but want others to think otherwise, take cues from Tom Holland’s athleisure-heavy look: a plain black T-shirt, track pants and white sneakers. Add a pair of glasses to up the chic element, and you’re sorted for days. You’re welcome.
