FEEL THE HEAT

Whether you're beach-bound or plan to have a back garden bash (or two), make sure you have the outfit to match. Ahead, the best summer staples to wear now.

Between booking a summer getaway to a tropical resort, stocking up on books to read poolside and hosting back garden get-togethers, there’s so much to do to properly prepare for summer. But topping the list is, inarguably, getting your wardrobe summer ready.

It’s time to swap heavy winter peacoats for light breezy shell jackets, switch out dark gloomy tones in favour of bright vibrant shades and ultimately, dress a lot cooler - in every sense of the word.

Below, our summer contemporary shoot showcasing all that’s new for Brown Thomas Summer 2022 menswear. From the return of double denim to technicolour co-ords, here are 8 summer menswear trends to help inform the season ahead.

A CLASSIC COMBINATION

While there’s nothing new about the classic pairing of a smart shirt with a pair of shorts, the items themselves have been revitalized for Summer 2022. Shirts have taken a more relaxed approach favouring oversized cuts and spread out collars whereas shorts are once again back to knee length.

MAKE A STATEMENT

You’ll be happy to hear that hoodies are going absolutely nowhere this summer. However, the trusty loungewear staple has been elevated and reborn as a high fashion statement piece thanks to the incorporation of XL statement-making logos. Whether emblazoned across the chest or subtly worked into the print of the garment, a logo hoodie is a summer must-buy.

DOUBLE DENIM

An eternal wardrobe staple, denim never really goes out of style. But the way we wear the beloved blue fabric? That never stops evolving. For summer 2022, double denim is making a triumphant return. In fact, the more denim worn in one singular outfit, the better.

A WINNING SET

Co-ords can solve a summer styling conundrum in one fell swoop. These matching separates work harder than anything else in your wardrobe, providing a ‘just-thrown-on’, ready-built ensemble, as well as a plethora of mix-and-match possibilities. Take it up a level this summer by embracing vibrant shades, bold patterns and floral prints.

AN EXTRA LAYER

With the sun shining and the mercury rising, the last thing on your mind is understandably outerwear. But as this is Ireland after all, it’s always best to be prepared for the inevitable wet, windy summer day.

BACK TO BLACK

Black has somewhat of a bad reputation when it comes to warm-weather dressing, and while it does absorb atmospheric heat, it also conducts heat away from your body – meaning it’s actually one of the smartest options when it comes to building out your summer wardrobe. But more to the point, it also looks incredibly chic.

TRACK STAR

Athleisure has been slowly but surely taking over our wardrobes in recent years. First it was the chunky trainer, then the effortless joggers - and now, it’s the track jacket. A style synonymous with the 1990s, track jackets are versatile for the wearer, ideal to throw on when the sun dips behind a cloud and can be styled with just about everything you own.
