Adding a solid colored shirt over your tee will actually make it pop.

Now, for the bottom half.

In an effort to avoid the “basic bro” look (ahem, khaki shorts), we opted for a cool destroyed denim short.

Choosing an all white short on the bottom will help make the top half of your outfit pop.

To finish our first outfit, we have to add some fresh men’s accessories.

Pro tip: Remember, less is more.

Since we have a warm colored shirt on top, we selected a warm-colored sporty sneaker and a gold men’s watch to bring the look together.

Here’s the spread again.

Look #2: a preppy meets urban style

Our second men’s summer look is this bright-colored spread.

Warning: this is for the pattern confident wearer. 

It’s time for some seersucker.

A seersucker pair of shorts is a man’s best friend during summer. It’s like wearing a comfy pair of boxers.

Pro tip: breathability in a fabric is your best friend during warmer months.
