The Top 3 Trends All Guys Need to Try this Summer

All season long we’ve given our attention to the ladies, so now it’s time to turn our focus toward the gents. Edgar + Ash is our new apparel line for men, which offers style and comfort for the laidback, surfer-esque guy. 

Gone are the days of shabby gym shorts and old tees – clothing options for men have become much more abundant and fashion forward. So if you’re ready to help your guy up his style game this summer, show him our three favorite trends for men in 2017.

Hawaiian-Inspired Prints

From a day on the boardwalk to dining al fresco, this look is perfect for guys with a surfer-esque style. Embrace the trend fully by opting for a short-sleeved print button up, or go for an understated take with a classic striped tee. The Hawaiian print pocket acts as a bold accent here, bringing the hip, carefree outfit to a whole new level. Complete the look with a pair of solid breaker shorts, or choose casual comfort with a pair of matching joggers. Is he intrigued by patterns but a little nervous about florals? Read on for a modern take on everyone’s favorite retro print.

Tie-Dye Tees

We all know that ‘90s fashion is back and here to stay, so why not re-introduce a staple trend from your childhood? Mono-colored tie-dye tees are great for classic guys, who are also looking to add something more adventurous to their closets. Put a sporty spin on this style by adding a solid, sleeveless hoodie, or opt for something more modern by tying the print around his waist (see the beginning of this post for inspo). Both offer a contemporary take on an old school trend – so no matter which you choose, we promise you can’t go wrong.

Pink (Yes, Pink!)

Style experts say that pink will be the color of 2017, so rose-colored shorts, jackets and tees should definitely be in your man’s closet. Pink has become a color of power for both men and women – so guys shouldn’t shy away from this traditionally feminine shade. Blush pastels are the perfect addition to a light, neutral outfit and always look great whether you’re dressed up or dressed down. If he’s hesitant to add this rosy hue to his wardrobe, refer back to our advice from a few sections up. Find a tee or tank that includes pink on a small portion, or within a print that features other colors too.

With these hot summer trends, the men in your life will be looking their best.

The One Color You Need to Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Fall

Although we’re still in the heat of summer, our minds (and closets!) have begun the shift to fall. It’s about time to retire our vibrant, colorful staples and slowly transition back to autumn hues. In order to make the breakup a bit smoother, our longstanding color crush Olive Green is here to put a fresh spin on this season’s wardrobe – even before the leaves start to fall. If you’re as in love with this earthy hue as we are, read on for four ways to transition this shade from season to season.

Lingerie-Inspired Lace Tank Top

Wear It Now: For a work-appropriate summer ensemble, tuck this tank into a pencil skirt and throw a basic cardi over your shoulders. Complete the look with block heel sandals or simple ballet flats; then add a short statement necklace as an extra chic accessory. If your plans involve a day date or shopping spree instead, denim bottoms and strappy sandals create the perfect laidback look.

Wear It Later: To transition this tank from summer to fall, pair the top with an oversized ‘90s-esque blazer. The feminine floral print coordinates with the tank’s lacy details, and the silky material matches that of the olive green top. To add to the juxtaposition of dressy and relaxed styles, finish the outfit with distressed denim and neutral slip-ons or sneakers.

 

Embroidered Tank with Fringe Tassels

Wear It Now: Pair this olive tank with your go-to denim shorts for a casual, carefree look made for festivals or street fairs. The boho-inspired embroidery will be the focal point of your outfit – which means necklaces aren’t necessary and your earrings should be understated. Pull your hair back to let the details shine and finish the ensemble with cork slip-ons or strappy sandals.

Wear It Later: This top can transition to cooler temps in no time by adding a cozy cardigan in a neutral tan or cream. Add your favorite jeans or tuck the top into a midi, then opt for wedge booties or mules instead of sandals. This tank would also look great with a pair of colored jeans in another fall shade like burnt orange, cream or khaki.

 

Sheer Top with Ruffled Sleeves

Wear It Now: For a relaxed, yet temperature-appropriate look, try this sheer and breathable olive green tunic. The effortless flow of this top makes it easy to wear with anything, while the subtly ruffled sleeves still give it that statement look. Pair the tee with capris on a cool summer night, or your go-to denim skirt for a casual daytime vibe. To complete the outfit, add tan two-strap sandals to dress it up, or opt for velvet ballet flats for a more comfortable option. As for accessories, gold bangles and hoop earrings are just enough to complement this simple ensemble.

Wear It Later: As soon as fall hits, a top like this is perfect for any activity – day or night. The sheer, lightweight material can keep you cool during the day, and is easily paired with a denim jacket for a night out. Wear the top with black skinny jeans or clean-cut, denim capris to transition into two completely different looks. Finally, add gold, silver or a pop of yellow jewelry to elevate your fashion-forward fall outfit.

Suede Tee with Lace-Up Details

Wear It Now: This suede lace-up tee reminds us of all things boho, which is why it’s a natural pair for a flowy cotton skirt. Go simple with a solid, neutral midi-skirt, or pair it with a bolder patchwork style fabric. If you’d rather let the olive top do the talking, opt for a classic denim skirt or shorts when choosing your bottoms.

Wear It Later: To make this look more cool-weather-ready, add a cozy knit cardi and dark wash denim jeans. Complement the top’s tassels by choosing a sweater with fringe, then finish off the look with a pair of brown, faux leather booties. Metallic statement earrings or bracelets will make the outfit pop, while pulling your hair back will let the lace-up details shine
