Summertime Style for the Cute Boy in Your Life!

Dolls, if we are absolutely truthful with ourselves, we are able to admit that shopping for summertime styles for the male persuasion is never an easy task. Cute boys seem to feel most comfortable concealing their gams underneath heavy denim – even when the temperatures spike into the triple digits, and sweat is pouring down their temples. But I digress; Calvin Klein said it best when he stated “There has been a change in men’s attitudes towards their clothes. Men are more aware of fashion; they’re not afraid of it.” What they are oftentimes afraid of, however, is showing off their legs in Men’s Shorts; which is where you come in.

As the fashion-forward beauty we both know you are, you deserve to be accompanied by an equally fashionable beau this summer – and you can be! Two of the biggest trends in male fashion this year are short suits and vibrant prints and patterns – both of which can be achieved via the incorporation of a few well-selected pairs of shorts that will keep your boy cool in the heat; and effortlessly transition with him through the changing of seasons.

Plaids and stripes like the Rivington Daniels Checked Cargo Shorts, and the Fenchurch Meep Shorts can be coupled with plain white tees and Converse for casual summer daytime looks; or paired with a crisp button down (collar popped) and boat shoes for a more preppy summertime style (day or night). Whereas chinos – like Nanny State’s Toledo Chino Shorts – and tailored styles, like Superdry’s Regatta Tailored Shorts and French Connection’s Peached Cotton Shorts can seamlessly convert from summer simplicity to business casual or a dynamic fall look with the addition of a well-cut blazer, or cardigan.

One selection caters to the vibrant print and patterns trend, the other embraces the short suit obsession; both, luckily for you, provide your cute boy with a handsome summertime style that keeps him cool and dapper from day to night!

What’s your favorite summertime style for boys?


Fashionably yours!

I can see my guy wearing the outfit in the middle than any of the other outfits. He likes his track suit jacket.

Great article.

Awesome post Erika!

I could get Rian to do the top half of these outfits, but not the bottom half. For some awful reason, Rian only likes wearing his old soccer shorts from college. He refuses to wear nice shorts like normal men. It's very disconcerting. Any tips on how to convince him to wear normal man shorts? Perhaps I should cut off all his pants? Hahahaha!! (I'm not kidding).

I just went shopping with my man and oh boy oh boy does he look handsome in his new duds. But he wouldn't wear short. Urgh! Drove me crazy because I do love him in shorts.

this is a different topic for you!!! I like it. I was just talking about this with my boyfriend last weekend actually. he never spends his money and GQ had this really cute outfit from stores all around us for 400 bucks- I asked him if he would splurge on it for himself and he said yes! So I'm really excited to put it together. I like when he dresses like the attached because on his own he will match tennis shoes with jeans, oy.

ps I know a few people with an aversion to driving too!

Ooh I really like the last guy on the right. Cute style. I think guys can rock shorts too! I'm not sure what they should wear WITH it though. I guess it depends on the guy. :)

I don't currently have a boy in my life, but I like him in casual clothes. I'm a casual girl, so I would want him just as comfortable.
