Summer Holiday: Menswear
Now that the sun is shining on a daily basis, it’s time to make sure you fellas have all your summer wardrobe basics and holiday essentials to hand. The challenge each summer is to take your favourite shorts and t-shirt silhouette and rework it to reveal a new look and a new you. If you’re not quite sure where to start, fear not as Primark’s second drop of Summer 15 is now in store.
Key updates to summertime favourites can be seen in the colour palette as slim, knee length shorts are used as a vehicle to inject hot brights into each look. Azure blue, canary yellow and turquoise warm up menswear for the new season, which work perfectly when worn with block coloured shirts and vests – we recommend a bold a coral and blue combo. However if you’re not that fashion forward keep it simple by paring brightly coloured shorts with classic black and white shades.
Prints also play a lead role within our Miami vibes collection, filtering down into shirt and t-shirt graphics. Palm leaves and floral combination have a love-worn and sun bleached look, toning it down from previous seasons and making this vivid print easier to wear. However, abstract landscapes brighten the mood coming in vibrant colour combinations with light hues at the top and darker at the bottom creating an ombre effect. In keeping with our tropical mood for this season, flamingo motifs are another favourite when it comes to vest decoration.

Denim roll ups remain as a staple, available in both pale and mid blue washes, that are easy to throw on day after day and are a perfect holiday basic. These will be a welcomed change from the skinny jeans that you’ve lived in all winter and will instantly refresh your look.
For those hotter days why not wear opt for a slightly shorter, cotton short or even allow your swimmers to double up as daywear apparel for those days you’re heading down to the park with you friends or your local outdoor lido.
Now with an array of shorts, t-shirts and vest options in your wardrobe, you will be able to mix and match your way throughout the summer season.
