Men's end of summer style

In summer, it’s tempting to keep a rotation of thongs, shorts and a singlet, no matter the occasion (probably not a great idea for your best friend’s wedding). When it’s sticky and sweaty, we ditch style for comfort, but we’re here to help you have both.

Whether you’re gearing up for the beach, dressing for a dinner date, attending an outdoor wedding or just getting ready for work, you can survive the sun-soaked months in style by blending fashion and functionality.

Here’s how you can redefine your summer wardrobe for any summer occasion.

Weddings and formal events

For events marked well in advance on your summer calendar, you’re going to want something a little sophisticated. The thought of wearing a heavy suit and tie in the heat can be daunting, but we’ve got some tips and tricks to ensure your outfit befits the occasion without sacrificing comfort.

Whether you’re a guest at wedding or attending an industry event, we recommend choosing a suit made from lightweight fabric to ensure breathability and air circulation, such as anything made from cotton or linen. Match with a cotton shirt and prioritise light colours and neutral tones to reflect the heat. Find these at Country Road, Politix and David Jones.

Beach day

This might seem a bit self-explanatory but dressing for a day at the beach isn’t as easy as it sounds, especially if you're planning a beachside lunch or dinner after your dip. You’ll need a stylish outfit that’s sun-protective, comfortable and easy to swim in. We recommend combining a quick-drying pair of colourful board shorts with a linen shirt to keep you covered and cool when you’re out of the water. Choose a good quality pair of thongs or sandals to protect your feet from the hot sand and accessorise with some UV protective sunglasses and a hat to maximise your defence against the sun. We recommend visiting Gazman, M.J. Bale, General Pants and Industrie.

Dinner date

When you’re on a date, you want to feel as good as you look. Wearing a singlet, some footy shorts and a pair of thongs might not be a great decisio

n, but neither is sitting in a pool of sweat in your finest suit. Whether you’re out for a night of dancing, eating at a cosy restaurant or seeing a movie, we recommend a smart casual look that captures the essence of summer. Short sleeved shirts are back! Super comfortable, they look great when fitted correctly. Pair with linen pants or cropped chinos and match with either a pair of fashionable sandals or some boat shoes. For the best selections, visit Politix, Academy Brand and Zara.

For the office

There’s nothing worse than working a 9-5 in discomfort, which happens so often for the sake of professionalism. In 2024, there’s no reason to compromise comfort for your job, so let’s tailor your work wardrobe for the warmer months. The key is to choose breathable fabrics and light colours, using accessories to look sharp and add personality. If a suit is your go-to, try replacing the shirt and tie with a cotton polo and pair with some stylish city shorts, cut just above the knee. Maintain personality with a range of accessories, such as a stylish watch, rings and belt. Try visiting M.J. Bale, Swanndri and Rodd & Gunn.
