Dark or raw denim is a bona fide menswear staple. But when the weather turns hot, it ceases to be practical.
Luckily, this season there is a solution to the problem. It’s a few shades lighter, it’s casual and it goes with almost everything. Mid-wash denim was everywhere in the menswear collections and this time it looks as though it could be here to stay.
Piling on layers when the sun is shining may not sound like the most practical move to make but it can still be an option if done cleverly. And whilst retaining a smart causal look.
Swap out the heavy outerwear for lightweight jackets and overshirts worn over plain tees, polos or shirts. This way you can remove them if you get too hot. Then simply tie them around your waist, shoulders or torso to retain the visual element without the added warmth.
Camp Collar Shirts
Classic collar short-sleeve shirts can carry with them some unwanted ‘lads down the pub’ connotations for some. This breezy summer option offers a stylish way around that.
Camp collar shirts have been big for several years now, meaning you can rest assured they have some longevity in them and aren’t just a fleeting fad. The flat, lapel collar styling adds a touch of something different to what might otherwise be a bland outfit, creating a subtle focal point to tie a look together. Perfect when worn with tailored swim shorts for a light lunch at a beachside restaurant.
