June 21 marked the official start of the summer season. And now that spring is in the rear view mirror, you should update your wardrobe to reflect the seasonal transition. So, today we’re going to explore some of the top men’s summer fashion trends for 2017.
Granted, above-the-knee shorts have been around for decades; they were even popular back in the 1970s. However, there’s been a revival of sorts surrounding this style — a trend that’s expected to continue through the summer and beyond. Above-the-knee shorts offer a unique style that compliments a man’s body. Furthermore, most men will agree that they are cooler and more comfortable to wear during the summer than below-the-knee shorts.
Who says denim shorts are no longer in style? While they’ve faded from popularity in recent years, they’ve since experienced a revival. Denim shorts combine the benefits of denim with the style of traditional shorts. Denim is rugged, durable and offers a unique appearance. If you want to differentiate yourself from the crowd this summer, consider sporting a pair of denim shorts. Just remember to choose a “tone” that works with the rest of your outfit.
Of course, linen shirts are also a hot fashion trend for the 2017 summer season. As you may already know, linen is a lightweight fabric that’s made from the fibers of the flax plant. In addition to being used for clothes, it’s also used to make aprons, towels, bed linens, tablecloths, furniture covers and more. Linen is often preferred over other fabrics because of its exceptionally lightweight characteristics. Linen shirts embrace this element by offering a cool, comfortable style that’s perfect for summer.
Some men assume that dark indigo-colored jeans offer the greatest aesthetic benefit. After all, indigo and other dark colors are typically associated with a more formal appearance. While it’s true that indigo is a better choice than light blue for formal events and occasions, there are times when light-colored jeans come out on top, such as the summer season. Unless you’re attending a formal event, it’s best to stick with light-colored jeans this summer. A pair of light faded, 100% denim jeans is an excellent addition to your summer wardrobe.
Just because it’s summer doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to put away your coats and jackets. A thin bomber jacket is a great choice of outerwear for the summer. It’s light enough to prevent you from getting hot, yet it still covers your arms.
