Summer Vacation: Menswear
Now that the sun is shining on a daily basis, it’s time to make sure you guys have all your summer wardrobe basics and vacation essentials on hand. The challenge each summer is to take your favorite 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, have no fear: Primark’s second drop of Summer 15 is now in stores.
Key updates to summertime favorites can be seen in the color 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 colored shirts and tank tops – we recommend a bold a coral and blue combo. However if you’re not that fashion forward keep it simple by paring brightly colored 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 color 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 favorite when it comes to tank top 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 vacation 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 opt for a slightly shorter, cotton short or even allow your swim shorts to double up as daywear apparel for those days you’re heading down to the park with you friends or your local outdoor pool.
Now with an array of shorts, t-shirts and tank top options in your wardrobe, you will be able to mix and match your way throughout the summer season. Not forgetting about the finishing touches with Wayfarers and aviators, the perfect eyewear choice in classic black and warm brown shades. For footwear we recommend you mix it up with slip ons or leather sandals allowing each outfit choice to have a point of difference.
Now with a wardrobe that will work for you all summer long, all you need is to plan where you’re vacationing this year. Bon voyage!
