The humble t-shirt is a summer essential. Perfect for using as a cover up on holiday, wearing casually with shorts or keeping cool on hot summer evenings out, it’s a style staple that no men’s wardrobe should be without. Whatever you have planned for summer 2013, check out the latest trends in men’s t.shirts and refresh your tee collection for the new season:
Light, bright men’s t.shirts are great for using as cool cover ups on the beach. Pull on after a dip in the pool to take you from the poolside to the bar or bistro, or wear during the hottest part of the day on the beach to protect sensitive shoulders.
The beach themed Photo Montage Print T-shirt, just £5 at George at ASDA , is the perfect pick in hot orange. Or, for a more understated style, the Boston Crew T-shirt, £8, comes in a cool light beige for maximum sun reflection.
Summer is the perfect time to perfect your tennis swing, don those cricket whites or hit the field with a football. Being able to get outside and exercise in the fresh air and sunshine is one of the best things about the summer season, so make sure you’re kitted out to take advantage of it.
The George Neo Tec T-shirt in white will reflect the sun’s rays and features moisture wicking technology to keep the body cool and dry. Be sure to reapply your sun protection regularly, as sweat can render sunscreens ineffective, and don’t forget to wear a hat.
Summer stripes are perfect for casual days out in the sun. Whether you’re headed for the park or the pub, the George Stripe T-shirt will keep you cool and comfy, and look stylish with the summer’s chino shorts in beige, cream or navy. Just add boat shoes for an off-duty summer style that’s bang on trend.
Summer nights out can be difficult to dress for. Looking smart but feeling cool and comfortable is a balancing act, so look at smarter tees that will take you from day to night in style. Pocket tees are a hot summer trend, or choose granddad or polo style t.shirts for extra fashion points. If you have a gig to go to, a cool band style t-shirt like the Kasabian print shirts at George, will fit the bill.
Keep Cool at Work
While you might be used to buttoning up in smart shirts for work, if the dress code allows, why not lighten up your work look for summer? Collared polo t.shirts are a good compromise, and the Chambray Polo, £9 from George, will look great with smart chinos.
There’s a simple summer tee for every outfit and occasion, and the best bit is that men’s t.shirts can be picked up for just a few pounds, letting you update your wardrobe for the new season with spending a fortune.
