No matter whether you’re staying at home or venturing abroad this summer, we help you avoid a summer style crisis by showing you how to wear the best summer casual looks this season. Here at Slater Menswear we have a stylish selection of summer separates so let us walk you through the key combinations and pieces that will help you make up your must have summer wardrobe.
One of the key and defining pieces of achieving a summer casual look is without a doubt the Blazer. The key is to choose a lightweight blazer for summer to ensure you are not adding extra warmth, we’re loving the new Harry Brown Heritage Rib Navy Jersey Blazer, £69. A lightweight blazer will stop you looking top heavy, we recommend keeping your blazer to a neutral tone in either stone, grey or navy. You can always add colour through your shorts, shirt or accessories. Here’s some of our favourite Blazers this summer:
The chino short is really the only short of choice this summer. If you didn’t want to wear a blazer, a tailored short can act as the smart, structured element of the outfit when paired with a pair of brogues or loafers. A tailored chino short will add a touch of class to your outfit and give you a structured, more polished look while still maintaining comfort and effortless style. Again keeping the shorts neutral is a must to prevent you from being limited in your palette.
To keep your look casual you may be tempted to opt for a t-shirt under your blazer, however we would suggest a polo shirt to give you a more preppy summer style. This is your chance to add colour to your otherwise neutral look.
Finally your footwear is key to completing the look, luckily there aren’t really any rules. It depends how smart you want to go, or how casual. Brogues, loafers or casual Converse, can all be found in a choice of colours and styles.
You may want to analyse what to wear on your feet once you’ve cemented the other pieces you are going to be wearing. Do you need to add a smarter feel? Or make it more casual? No matter what your Summer Casual style we have you covered.
