The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, but your wardrobe is awful. We’re here to change that.
Summer is a difficult period of time to know what to wear, as balancing comfort with style is always a risky game. On one hand, you don’t want to spend the entire season dripping with sweat by sporting your favorite heavy-duty jackets and the like, but on the other hand you don’t want to wear a boring tee, a pair of plain shorts and then be done with it. You want to feel comfortable, but you also want to look good, and this selection of clothes and accessories from
Asos will certainly help you achieve this.
CraveOnline‘s guide on what to wear this summer.
What to Wear This Summer
What to Wear This Summer #1
You can never go wrong with red, and this slim-fit red rib jersey in particular is a real eye-catcher.
With its grandad neck-line (that means it's low-cut, but not so low-cut that passers-by will be able to see your nips) this top will allow your skin to soak up the rays whilst simultaneously making you stand out among your fellow sun-lovers.
Team it with a pair of tortoise shell or black-rimmed sunglasses to finish off the look.
What to Wear This Summer #2
Wayfarer's always look good, and these shades from Jeepers Peepers are a prime example of that rule.
With their chunky frames and tinted lenses, these sunglasses provide a unique modern twist on that classic Wayfarer design.
What to Wear This Summer #3
Neutral colors are
perfect for beachwear, and this print t-shirt with rolled-up sleeves is a fine example of a top that's ideal to sport while sifting your feet through the sand.
Denim jeans/shorts will complement this tee, though given its off-white design you could pair it with just about anything. Versatile tops such as this are essential for your summer wardrobe.
What to Wear This Summer #4
If you're looking to build up a tan over the summer, then nothing will highlight your newly bronzed skin more than a white t-shirt.
This Anticulture number features a stylish striped Baroque front that elevates it from the mundanity of a plain white tee, but it's still comfortably casual for those trips to the beach you'll be making.
What to Wear This Summer #5
U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
Represent your homeland with these swim shorts, which sport the ol' red, white 'n' blue in a faded tile pattern.
Swim shorts never represent the height of men's fashion, but the shorts' light colors mean that you can pair them any combination of tops/sandals and they'll look good, making these a must-buy.
What to Wear This Summer #6
You're not going to want your wardrobe to solely consist of swim shorts this summer, but it's also hard to find a pair of shorts to coordinate with your tops. Thankfully, these denim-look shorts from River Island will go with just about anything.
With a straight (but snug) fit and a classic five-pocket style, these shorts are an ideal candidate for walks along the pier in the sunshine. They'll also allow you to get some color to your legs, and lord knows you probably need it.
What to Wear This Summer #7
If you're going to the beach, you're going to need a bag to carry your towels and a change of clothes. This canvas military satchel will do the job, and do it whilst looking good.
Sporting multiple pouches to carry all of your clothing and items, this sizeable satchel will be your ideal companion in the sunshine.
What to Wear This Summer #8
Our pick of the bunch, this slim-fit jersey with its grandad neck-line and button placket is both lightweight and stylish.
We're big fans of plain tops that manage to stand out from the crowd, and this jersey does just that. It can also function as an undershirt, particularly with any chequered shirts you own, thanks to its not-quite-yellow-but-not-quite-brown color.
What to Wear This Summer #9
For those summer days when you just don't want to wear sandals, driving shoes, these suede driving shoes from Selected will be just the ticket.
Selected pride themselves on providing footwear with a focused attention to detail, and these shoes certainly fit that bill. Ideal for summer afternoons spent bar-crawling.
What to Wear This Summer #10
It's the summer so you'll need to have a large selection of lightweight clothes in your wardrobe, but what about clothing for those occasions when you aren't sprawled on a deck chair? You're also going to need something to wear for those long summer nights, and this short-sleeve denim shirt is just the ticket.
With a black acid wash design, this shirt may not look like it'd belong on the body of guy who'd spent his afternoon splashing in the sea before ordering a cocktail with a little umbrella in it, but really, who wants to look like that guy anyway?
What to Wear This Summer #11
If you don't particularly want to spend the entire summer with your knees out, then these stretch denim, straight leg jeans are for you.
Sporting that "dusty" look that makes it look as though you've just stepped foot out of a sand dune, these jeans are perfect for summertime nights out, providing a casual look that also ensures no one will have to see your hairy legs.
