Mens summer shirts 2022


Denim is thick, heavy and generally not the most practical fabric when it comes to summer shirts. Chambray, on the other hand, is light, comfortable and still retains its weightier counterpart’s good looks and versatility. One thing that puts a lot of men off experimenting with chambray is that it can be tricky to style, especially with jeans – but it can be done. When wearing with denim down below make sure the washes (i.e. shades) are different enough to contrast as anything too similar will look jarring. For a fail-safe approach, switch your jeans for chinos in a lighter shade such as beige, off-white or stone.

19 Best Summer Shirts For Men [2021 Edition]

With its bright colours and busy, checked design, the madras shirt certainly isn’t for everyone. Named after the lightweight, Indian cloth that gives it its trademark breathability, this vibrant shirt style can be hard work to pull off, but the results are worth it. It’s a summer piece through and through, and oozes refined East Coast prep.

Knowing how to nail statement pieces is half the battle when it comes to upping your summer style game. The key is to let the shirt do the talking. Pair it with minimal wardrobe staples in a restrained colour palette, allowing the madras shirt to take centre stage.

There’s no wrong time of year for a classic Oxford button-down, and summer is no exception. This timeless menswear essential it great for layering up in the winter, but it can also hold its own with shorts and sneakers when the sun reappears.

One thing to bear in mind for summer is colour. In the heat, lighter shades tend to work better – think white to reflect the sun or pale blue or pink. Fit is crucial, too: ensure the seams line up on your shoulders, the body is cut slim but not restricting and the hem falls a couple of inches below the waist.

Wear it on its own or open over a T-shirt for cooler evenings around town.

It’d be nice if we could rely on the summer months being balmy from beginning to end. Sadly, it just doesn’t work that way. Chances are there’ll be the occasional cold stint, and when that happens it pays to be equipped.

The overshirt is a true wonder garment. One of the few pieces of outerwear that can be enjoyed year-round, it makes a trusty companion for summer days that haven’t turned out quite the way you’d hoped. Look for cotton or nylon versions for ultimate versatility – both materials are lightweight, easy to wear and can be layered over during the colder months for added ballast.

For bonus style points, opt for one in a vivid block colour to add a splash of personality to even the most basic of outfits.
