June has finally arrived, and we couldn’t be happier that summer is beginning.
With a new season comes new styles, and as temperatures increase, new outfits are a must in order to make the most of the summer. Whether it’s dinner, a beer garden or beach trip, Standout has all of the new season essentials you need to have the best summer yet – and look good doing it.
What will men wear in 2021?
With the Covid-19 pandemic still very much a part of our lives for the first half of 2021, it’s somewhat of a strange year for fashion. Most of us have probably spent the majority of it in our comfies, and it’s no surprise that loungewear has soared in popularity.
With all restrictions set to be lifted very soon, and temperatures soaring, it’s time to get your summer wardrobe ready – which may seem a little daunting! Of course, the summer essentials are back such as men’s shorts, t-shirts and lightweight jackets, but there’s a few big trends set to hit the men’s fashion scene that we can’t wait to try.
Top trends for summer 2021
New season, new styles. Summer 2021 is all about the comeback of classic fits, from utility shackets to nautical tees.
Utility has been back in style for a while now, and that’s not set to change. In summer 2021, it’s all about high functionality, influenced by the catwalks of Gucci and Balmain. Think oversized pockets, long sleeves and hybrid designs.
An overshirt is a stylish and practical way to rock the utility trend. Often referred to as a shacket, this is a really versatile piece you’ll be pulling from your wardrobe for years to come. Men’s designer overshirts are the perfect summer jacket as they’re lightweight and can be dressed up or down – ideal for nights spent chilling with friends in the beer garden.
Another classic comeback, the nautical trend is here for the long haul. A navy and white striped t-shirt and jeans is a simple combo that never lets us down – the print adds interest to your look and helps keeps your basics from being anything but boring.
Whether you manage to jet off overseas or decide to make do with the British coastline, one thing’s for certain: bold Bermuda shorts are a must.
Bermuda shorts have been making an appearance on the runway as of late, and the trend is set to ramp up as the weather gets warmer over the coming months. The vibe is pastel hues or bold prints, so get ready for men’s designer shorts that really make a statement.
A summer classic, you can never go wrong with a printed shirt. The perfect holiday attire whether it’s a staycation in the UK or an exotic trip overseas, printed shirts are the ideal balance between relaxed and dressy.
One shirt can provide a whole range of different looks – saving you some serious space in your suitcase. Pair with shorts, jeans or chinos, button all the way up or wear open when relaxing around the pool – a floral printed shirt can do it all.
Summer calls for fun footwear for men, and unlike last year, we can actually get out and about (fingers crossed!). Naturally, it’s the time of year we put away the work boots and bring out the sliders – we’re loving anything comfy, breathable but also stylish, which can be a difficult balance to strike.
Thankfully, we’ve got you covered with our top men’s summer footwear picks.
Birkenstock Arizona BS Sandals (£58.95)
A classic choice for summer styling, men’s sliders aren’t going out of fashion any time soon. Birkenstock is a popular brand for this type of footwear, thanks to the contoured sole and super soft straps that remain comfy even after hours of being on your feet. Sandals are very versatile but work particularly well for a beach trip outfit consisting of shorts and a t-shirt, as these can easily be taken on and off when you fancy a dip in the sea.
Lyle & Scott 1874 OG Canvas Trainers (£46.95)
You really can’t go wrong with a pair of men’s white canvas trainers – they go with any outfit and work for just about any occasion, whether it’s a day at the park or date night. We really love a pair of white canvas trainers with a pair of light coloured chinos and a printed shirt for dinner or drinks with the other half.
