As summer heat continues in Austin, casual and simple still seems to be the motto for men’s summer fashion. The Glamour September guy survey shows that 41 percent of guys describe their style as “clueless” and 32 percent as “classic.”
What caught my eye initially was this Fashionisto’s pink shirt and his periwinkle blue shorts from Ralph Lauren. His outfit perfectly blends summer trends and autumn’s must-haves. An ensemble like this is not only suitable for a day out with friends but works just as well while studying in the library. Incorporating a pleated pair of shorts is also a great opportunity to add some color in unexpected ways. In this case, shorts in lighter blue will always be a great replacement of denim for summer fashion. Also, stripes will never go out of style and each season is a fresh chance to sport this pattern in new and innovative ways on any day of the year. To keep up with the bright/light summer colors you could incorporate a pair of dark brown driving moccasins from Cole Haan.
With the Ray-Ban trend dying down, classic shapes similar to aviators can always steal back the spotlight. While your smartphone may do the trick, nothing tells time better than a wristwatch. In such style, this practical accessory can be worn with any outfit, anytime and anywhere. A black leather watch, as an understated classic, has been edging its way into teenage and young adult fashion this summer.
Hint: Instead of re-wearing that shirt you just wore several times, put in some effort to change up your outfits. While colored shorts and shirts may be comfortable right now, your wardrobe’s basics are not that far off.
