After a year of being laid-back with our fashion choices, we’d like to be the first ones to admit that we’ve really missed dressing up — and we have a hunch that we’re not the only ones feeling this way. Nothing says fresh start like a radical new look, and lucky for us, the Spring/ Summer ’21 runways have provided us with just enough inspiration to get our wardrobes popping. Ahead, we picked 4 of the hottest men’s summer trends worth trying.1. Minimal Magic

It’s the season to be a pioneer of the understated aesthetic — we’re talking elevated style staples that are minimal, streamlined yet effortless, and can still make a statement. The runways translated minimalism as solid coloured separates with clean lines and relaxed tailoring that made a subtle statement. Designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, and Lemaire made a case for a minimalist style that will leave you inspired to embrace the understated.

Until recently, leisurewear meant lounging around in your sweatpants, but now that has taken on a whole new meaning. Today’s leisurely clothing style is about retaining the lazy comfort of your sweatpants and elevating them to a place that feels refined enough to take them out to coffee. In practice, this means opting for joggers that offer the finesse of pants, shorts that have a tailored touch and shirts that somehow feel laid-back yet aggressively stylish — you can call it the new nonchalance.

Time and time again, we’ve mentioned our innate love for men in pastels, and just in time for summer, the trend has made a comeback in hues so fresh, they look good enough to eat. The summer collections were filled with light pinks, peaches, powder blues, and mint greens, proving that the soft power of pastels is the way to go with colour this season. If you’re new to the trend, you’re right to be a little wary. But when deployed correctly, pastels can be incredibly stylish. If you didn’t throw caution to the wind once in a while, then you won’t be able to don our latest lineup of sustainable pastel shirts and shorts for men.

‘Utility’ is the big buzzword in menswear this summer, with everyone from Dior Homme to Jacquemus, Ermenegildo Zegna, among many more getting in on the act. The fabrics are getting lighter and more resilient, pockets are growing in both number and size, and technical details are coming to the fore. The core idea? It’s no longer enough for your clothes to merely look good; they have to offer something, too. Translate utility in your style this summer with bomber jackets, ribbed hems, tailored trousers in sustainable fabrics like hemp, TENCEL, and organic cotton.
