It’s always fun to experiment and test out the newest trends and styles. In a previous post, we covered women’s wear summer 2021 fashion trends. Now, it’s time to discuss our favourite trends for men! Read on below to learn what’s hot in men’s fashion this summer.
“Florals for spring – groundbreaking.” Well how about florals for summer? Adding a floral piece to your wardrobe, whether it’s a shirt, pair of shorts, or bucket hat, is a great way to create a statement look. 70s trends are back in style this summer and florals are an easy way to add something dynamic and colourful to your look! Tip: Pair your floral piece while keeping the rest of the look neutral for this trend.
This summer we’re seeing a shift from the slim-fitting silhouette and moving towards an casual and oversized look. Whether it’s a light sweater or button-down shirt, this trend is both comfortable and gives a cool-relaxed feel. Tip: Don’t get too comfortable, make sure your pieces still fit – the oversized look is meant to look relaxed not baggy. At Gibson’s, our seamstress is happy to assist and is experienced in tailoring athleisure and casual wear.
Love a print, but not feeling florals? Don’t fret, you can always go with something striped. Striped tops have made a comeback and they’re also a fun play on the nautical theme. Opt for vertical stripes to give the illusion of more height and a slimmer build. Shop a few of our favourite striped looks here.
Functional fashion has been around for several seasons now, and this summer we’re focusing on the utility jacket. A utility jacket is the perfect layering piece for summer nights and colder seasons. We recommend getting this piece professionally cleaned as it can lose its shape in the wash! Shop utility jackets such as Carhartt, Banana Republic, and The North Face.
Guess what? Longer shorts are back. This year we’re seeing a return of the longer, wider shorts rather than the shorter shorts we saw in previous years. When trying to find the right length, choose shorts that are just a couple of inches above the top of your kneecap! Bermuda shorts are a summer staple that can be worn casually or more dressed up, depending on how you choose to style them.
After a two years of isolation, men’s fashion is making a statement with bold prints and comfortable silhouettes. We hope you try some out and find some new pieces to love and add to your wardrobe! Come to Gibson’s when cleaning these pieces to keep the longevity so that you can wear them again next summer. We also offer alternations so you can tailor these pieces to fit you just right.
