It’s natural to want to reach for sleeveless shirts and mesh shorts when the heat strikes, but there are plenty of ways to add style without overheating. The key is choosing loosely woven fabrics, light colors and breathable cuts. These men’s summer clothes all fit the bill, proving that with the right pieces, you can look sharp and keep your cool at the same time.

1. BLDWN Cabus Vertical Stripe Shirt ($129)

With short sleeves, a loose fit and a subtle pinstripe pattern, this button-up is airy enough for humid nights but dressy enough for rooftop negronis. Wear the camp-collar shirt over a slim tee for a retro barbecue look.

2. ALLSAINTS Sine Short Sleeve Crewneck T-Shirt ($70)

A modern take on the classic Breton T-shirt, this relaxed-fit crewneck will become a summer style staple. Mini ecru-navy stripes keep things interesting and pair well with everything from dark jeans to summer suits.

3. 7 For All Mankind Ryley Jeans ($189)

White jeans are much cooler than your basic blues (literally — they reflect the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them). If you’re intimidated by the brighter denim, keep your summer outfit simple by wearing them with a black tee or lightweight button-up and a pair of Chucks.

4. ALLSAINTS Shield Short Sleeve Button-Down Shirt ($130)

Nothing screams summer clothes like a Hawaiian shirt. This ALLSAINTS version features an abstract swan print in place of the usual floral pattern. Mustard, salmon and gray hues add to its understated island vibes.

5. Levi’s 511 Richard Light Warp Slim Jeans

Like white jeans, lighter blue styles hold less heat than their dark indigo cousins. These 511s also have a bit of stretch, which helps them from feeling too suffocating, despite their slim fit. Cuff them up on especially sweltering days.

6. John Varvatos Short Sleeve Burnout Crewneck ($90)

A fitted black tee is a staple for a reason, but sometimes, you need a little variety in your summer wear. This charcoal burnout crewneck is just as versatile but feels fresh.

7. J Brand Trueper Cargo Pants ($268)

Taupe and gray shades and a slim cut keep these camo cargos from feeling like army surplus. Multiple pockets mean you don’t have to lug around a heavy bag or sweat-inducing backpack. 

8. Miansai Geo Signet Ring ($165)

A simple gold accessory is an easy way to add style without a lot of effort (or a lot of layers). For extra cool points, wear it as a pinky ring.

9. KOMONO Brooklyn Square Sunglasses ($119)

There’s nothing wrong with the classic wayfarer style, but this blocky shape is modern without being too avant-garde. Plus, a new pair of shades is the easiest way to update your summer style.
