Summer has arrived.
For many, this means going on an extended vacation. A trip to the beach sounds really nice.
Others may prefer to just use whatever free time they’re getting to relax at home and maybe settle down with a good book or see what’s on Netflix.
If you’re anything like us though, the arrival of the summer season quickly causes you to wonder about what new fashion trends have emerged. More importantly, you’re wondering if any of these new trends will suit you.
Let’s take a closer look at summer 2019’s trends below to see if any of them can work for your personal style.
Going Bare-Chested Underneath SuitsWe’re not exactly breaking news by saying that the days can get pretty warm during the summertime. So, how has the fashion industry chosen to respond to that? Well, they just made suits worn with bare chests fashionable.
According to GQ, suit jackets that were worn over completely bare torsos was something you could see frequently if you attended some of the most recent fashion shows. The colors of the suit don’t matter. All of them can be worn directly over your back with no shirt in between.
Admittedly, this is not the easiest summer trend to get onboard with. For those feeling a bit bold though, why not try out the bare chest and suit combo to see how it works for you.
Hike Up Those ShortsMaybe suits worn over bare chests is not your thing, or at the very least, it’s something you still have to get used to. Don’t worry because there are other trends that are a little more accessible.
Case in point, short shorts for men are huge this summer. That’s good news because shorts are always great to wear when it’s hot out, and it’s nice to know that your choice of summer apparel is actually in line with what’s trending.
You don’t have to worry too much about what kind of short shorts you’re getting. Choose whichever shorts are made out of the most comfortable materials and don’t be afraid to strut in style while the sun’s out to play.
Sophisticated Skate Shoes Are More Than WelcomeYou can’t put together a summer look without the right footwear. For this year, you should keep an eye out for a pair of skate shoes, assuming that you don’t have a pair in your closet already.
The interesting thing about skate shoes is that they’ve become more sophisticated in recent years. Fashion Beans notes that more high-end designers have gotten into the business of creating high-fashion skate shoes.
If you’re looking for a new pair of skate shoes yourself, the Baltazar from Belvedere is a great option to consider.
Sage Is Summer’s Hottest HueYou may assume that a different shade of yellow, orange, or perhaps red would be the number one color of this summer, but that’s not the case this year.
Instead, designers have fallen in love with all things sage. This more understated color provides a nice bit of contrast to the summer’s typically bright color palette.
Make sure you have some sage items in your closet ready.
