The Casual Summer Outfit Every Man Should Have

What is THE summer outfit for men this year? After sifting through the latest releases from men’s fashion brands, countless celeb pics, influencer posts, the latest recommendations from men’s fashion sites like GQ & MrPorter, Pinterest and more – We’ve found that 2023 is ALL about the layers. This season is bringing in smart, light layering that adds texture, pattern and color into men’s outfits.
What’s the official look? While there are various ways to achieve the layering effect, here’s the basic formula: A unique button-up short sleeve shirt, a shirt layered underneath, light & roomy trousers or shorts and a summer sneaker/sandal/clog. A light jacket on top is a great bonus layer!
This smart combo is great for elevated outfits at outdoor festivals like Coachella, summer work outfits for casual and creative spaces, barbecues, picnics, date night and going out with friends. We’ve created 9 easy to pull off outfit ideas for you to shop or riff off of this spring and summer! Check them out below.

For the guy who prefers to ditch a few layers (hey – sometimes the heat can be a bit much), you don’t have to sacrifice style. Follow the same formula of a bold button up, lightweight pant and summer shoe sans the undershirt layer and you’ve still got a great outfit suitable for all your outdoor event needs.
