The key trends, redefined by you
How are you going to make this season’s hottest menswear trends your own? Our Style Guide has all the answers…
Urban cowboys are riding into town this summer, dressed head-to-toe in some of the best denim we’ve seen in a long time. From Dolce & Gabbana to Bianca Saunders, double denim ruled the runways, with a leaning towards dark selvedge trucker jackets, embellished jeans, and a tonne of distressed details and interesting acid dyes. Dark navy and black jeans are a hit (and timeless too) so check out Levi's and Calvin Klein for those, but if you’re more of a stonewashed guy then the likes of AllSaints and Jack & Jones have plenty to offer this season. Look for interesting silhouettes such as baggy jeans, denim shorts, or oversized denim shirts, and pair them with the humble white tee and sneakers for an effortless urban edge.
Wallflowers should look away now, because one of the biggest trends of the season will make your eyes pop. Welcome to the summer of neon, where brands such as Givenchy, MSGM, and Vetements must have thrown a kaleidoscope at their respective mood boards. Acid green, dahlia pink, and volume-up violet are just some of the bold tones lighting up wardrobes. We love the block colour neon tailoring and eveningwear of BOSS and Armani Exchange, but if being suited in fruit pastel tones is too much, add a neon tee, sweat or pair of shorts to your casual fits to boost your day glow. Don’t be shy with clashing tones either. The runways were full of fun contrasts, graphic prints, and bold accessories.

We say ‘suits’, you say ‘office’. Well, that used to be the case but the tailoring class of 2023 is giving the 9-5 a wide berth because the suits on display at Giorgio Armani, Etudes, AMI, and many others were all about sophisticated leisure. Super relaxed, unstructured cuts in pastel tones, styled with a simple tee, are the flavours of a chic summer. We’re fans of the loose double-breasted styles at Armani and BOSS, while the baggy neutral tailored trousers by Banana Republic are a must, whether you wear them as part of a suit, or as separates. Cotton and linen fabrics are best to keep your cool in, and style the whole look down with a deep v-neck tee or a grandad collar shirt.
The loose relaxed shapes of the tailoring will do most of the talking, but you can still dial up the volume of your summer suits with these hand-picked accessories.
