Summer Fashion for the Everyday Man

In this blog post, Olivia + Laura highlight the key players in the summer 2022 fashion lineup. (Catch the sports reference there?)


Men. We know them, we love them and we dress them. Frankly there aren't enough mens fashion posts out there for the everyday guy! So we made a guide that is easily adaptable and works for all lifestyles. All you need is these 8 things in your closet and you are SET!


Men, this ones for you!

 

Textured Dress Shirts

Dress-shirts don't have to be boring! This summer look out for linen, accordion ribbed or satin/silk dress shirts to wear to work and can be transitioned to the terasse at night.

COS I H&M I ZARA


Bold Prints & Bright Colours

Although it is fine to have basics in your closet sometimes you need to spice it up. The bold print and a bright colour are the easiest ways to integrate summer 2022 fashion trends into your wardrobe. This applies for both tops and pants.


Find yours at:

MANGO I SIMONS I ZARA


The Polo Shirt (but better)

The polo shirt is a tried and true staple in all mens closet. So, take what you like and embellish it! On your next shopping trip, look at for Terry Cloth, thin-knit or polo without buttons option to add to your collection.


ATTN: Golf polos are exclusively meant for golf! DO NOT wear the Nike polo elsewhere!

Linen Shorts

Linen is the easiest thing you can integrate into your wardrobe this season. Instead of always wearing athletic-wear or the infamous jean short, purchase linen shorts to embody the effortless look. They are light-weight and comfortable.


O+L Tip: Shorts must fall above the knee or higher-- nothing longer than a 7inch seam.

GAP I H&M I MANGO


Neutral Pants

O+L Tip: Avoid denim in the summer!

Listen to this tip and do not wear denim in the summer-- instead try a neutral pant or chino. Some occasions or temperatures warrant a pair of pants and a slim fit beige, white or earth toned pair of pants is the way to go.

If that's not exactly your style, most brands offer an elastic synch at the ankle to dress-down the look.

Mens Jewelry

Jewelry is not exclusive for women! There are so many brands, like Mejuri, who have created collections for men. For this trend, start small with a chain and then start integrating rings (or vice-versa). You will love it, we promise.

ATTN: Nothing is hotter than a man who wears jewellery.

MEJURI | SIMONS | LISA GOZLAN


Curve-Brimmed Caps

This is just a fancy way of saying anything but the flat-brimmed caps. Those are passé and no man or woman should be wearing them. Opt for a curved front, like a baseball cap. Not only are they stylish but they also shield your face from the sun.

Find yours at:

Simons | NIKE | FRANK & OAK


Utility Slides

Sandals are a key feature of summer and we suggest men wear them more. Utility sandals like these are a great way to venture away from the sport-slide and into something more streetwear.


ATTN: Pedicures are gender-neutral. All toes need to be cared for before they are exposed to the public.
