Men’s fashion has continued to take a more prominent role within the fashion industry, with trends becoming more influential and menswear brands becoming more significant. When it comes to wholesale men’s fashion, it’s no exception to this concept. The seasonal lookbooks for men are growing more fashionable and making bigger statements than ever before. The spotlight on menswear weeks is also increasing, nodding towards the idea that we should really sit up and pay more attention to the male gender when it comes to style. So, when it comes to creating a menswear collection, it’s important to include key pieces that are both seasonal and right on trend. As the men’s fashion industry becomes more saturated with urban brands, it’s crucial to make sure your collection stands out. With that in mind, here are some inspirational picks to include if you’re hoping to update your men’s collection for Spring/Summer 2018.
For the summer season, short sleeve shirts are back. Allowing you to maintain a smart appearance while being comfortable in the warmer weather, short sleeve shirts are a versatile piece of clothing for your wardrobe. With a range of creative designs to choose from, from online stores such as ssense.com, adding a printed shirt to your collection for SS18 is a smart idea. For a seasonal approach, a floral print can be effective in creating a holiday look - or if you simply just want to embrace the weather - choose a tropical take on the usual floral print, with green palm leaves and exotic flower designs. If that’s not your bag, look out for Aztec, geometric-type prints for an abstract take on summer fashion. A striking design for any occasion, it’ll become your go-to shirt for the summer.
While it’s true that you probably already have half a wardrobe of T-shirts ready for any occasion, make sure they’re fresh and up to date. If they’ve seen better days, upgrade your T-shirts to something of a high quality and fit. T-shirts with contrasting sleeves can create a simple but stylish look, while details like a pocket on the chest or raw edges can make sure you look on trend for the season. T-shirts are every guys' staple item thanks to their versatility. Wear under an open shirt, or by itself with jeans to create different looks to take you through the summer.
Whether you’re jetting off for the summer or staying in the UK, having a pair of swim shorts to hand is always a good idea. Choosing the right style means you can wear them by the pool in Italy or by the BBQ in your garden. Stylish designs such as dip dye or ombre shorts create a subtle but visual effect, while block colour can make a statement. Comfortable to wear, swim shorts are often a great choice for keeping cool in the warm weather. If you’re not so sure about wearing swim shorts in the UK, invest in a pair of activewear shorts which can ensure you’re embracing the weather in its entirety!
