Summertime can present the men in our lives with some difficult sartorial choices. There are men in the world who don’t feel comfortable in shorts, no matter how hot it gets outside; others who believe that flip flops are appropriate office attire. Striking the right balance between beach-lover and someone who shuns the sun can be tricky, but thanks to the newest range of summer menswear here at Littlewoods, we’ve got it covered.
Our new men’s trend, Shipwrecked, is perfect for the man who’s not sure how formal – or informal – to go in summer. Bold shirts and shorts, simple tees and stylish summer accessories make this an easy-to-wear range that’s perfect for relaxed offices or casual days at home.
Summer is the perfect time to try out some new, bold, bright colours in traditional formal menswear styles, creating a fresh but professional look. Long-sleeve shirts are easily rolled up, but make sure you choose one in a spring-friendly palette, like the Original Penguin Long Sleeve Shirt with Mini Collar in white and mint tones. The Goodsouls Mens Laundered Shirt in a pale pink and blue stripe is another office summer staple. For something a little more casual and vibrant, try the Selected Mens Slim Fitted Shirt with Roll Ups in vivid red and green, or the tropical Goodsouls Mens Floral Design Shirt in stylish blue and stone.
If your chap prefers t-shirts to shirts, then make sure he opts for something bang on-trend with this season’s vintage vibe. We’ve got plenty of cool tees in our Shipwrecked trend, included the quirky Levi’s Mens Short Sleeve Folsom Finest T-shirt and the Ted Baker Mens Round Neck Tee. A style classic, the striped sailor-style shirt is a brilliant investment; we love the Crosshatch Kript Mens T-shirt in burgundy, navy and white colourways.
Baring those pins might be something that we’re all ready to do come summer (with the help of some fake tan, of course!) but men aren’t always as quick to don a pair of shorts. Help him on his way to true summer dressing with some stylish shorts, like the Goodsouls Mens Chino Shorts in chocolate brown, or the relaxed Diesel Larkee Mens Denim Shorts. For those who are very brave – and off to the beach too – we love the Goodsouls Mens Retro Boardshorts (2 pack): retro, stylish and great value too! As a summery alternative to jeans, why not try the Goodsouls Slim Fit Mens Chinos in dark oxblood burgundy, or a pale mustard colour? They’ll add a splash of colour to your chap’s wardrobe and still be smart enough for work and nights out.
Keep it stylish, sophisticated and completely cool this summer thanks to the great range of menswear at Littlewoods. Why not check out some of our other menswear trends?
