4 Top Summer Colors for Men

· ·

Fashion has always been cyclical. Trends, fabrics, and points of inspiration come and go.

Colors also fall into this pattern. Some years, you’ll see certain colors everywhere. Other times, a hue will disappear off the racks for a year or two.

This summer, there are a few vibrant colors to add to your wardrobe to show your style. So grab your shorts. Today, we’re diving into those top summer colors for men.

What Colors Should Men Wear in the Summer?

Summertime is all about warm tones, and this year is no exception. Most trending colors for Summer 2024 are shades of purple, orange, and pink.

However, it can’t be warm all the time. Just as the contrast of winter weather makes us appreciate the summer sun even more, cool shades of blue balance out the warm tones of summer.

With that in mind, the four top summer colors for men are:

  • Mauve
  • Vibrant orange
  • Classic blue
  • Pink Peach

Let’s talk about how to wear and style each of them.

1. Mauve

The pale purple hue of mauve screams summertime. You’ll see it in bouquets, in sunsets—and, now, in wardrobes across the country.

Mauve has a naturally faded appeal that pairs perfectly with denim. A fitted ribbed tee in mauve would go well with some blue denim shorts or a pair of shredded black cutoffs.

The best part about mauve is that it’s vibrant enough to make a statement but not so bright as to pull all attention. That makes it the perfect candidate for pants. Try these mauve side snap nylon pants with your favorite neutral color graphic tee for a fresh summer outfit.

Prefer to be more subtle with your summer style? Washed mauve is an excellent option. The lighter shade of purple-gray of a washed mauve tee reads neutral—so you can pair it with almost any bottom.

2. Vibrant Orange

The color of creamsicles and pool noodles, vibrant orange is a summery staple. This year, bright bursts of orange are making a comeback.

Incorporating vibrant orange into your summer wardrobe can be as simple as accessorizing. Nothing says summer simplicity like an orange trucker hat with an off-white tee and denim shorts. For a stylish take, consider men's jean short outfits with orange accents to add a pop of color.

If you like your vibrant orange front and center, reach for an in-your-face piece like a light jacket or vest. Perfect for layering on cool summer evenings, these garments will help you stand out.

Shorts are another place to infuse orange into your summer outfit. Throw on some orange terry cloth shorts with an oversized tee and white sneakers, and you’re set for the summer.

3. Classic Blue

Although it was the Pantone Color of the Year back in 2020, Classic Blue is returning this summer. Expect to see the deep, moody blue hue everywhere.

You can incorporate classic blue into your summer wardrobe in a few ways, including:

  • Shorts – A pair of blue summer shorts is the ultimate match for any neutral color tee or short-sleeve button-up.
  • Jeans – Summer isn’t all about shorts. When it’s time to hit the restaurant or the club, a pair of dark-wash denim pants in classic blue is in order. Toss on a long-sleeve tee or flannel overtop for an evening-ready outfit. For a stylish twist, try denim on denim for guys, pairing your classic blue jeans with a denim jacket.
  • Belts – This blue rhinestone belt adds a seasonal color into your outfit without overdoing it. You can never go wrong with a black tee, some denim shorts, and a trusty belt.

4. Pink Peach

Somewhere between pink and orange, peach is the embodiment of the spring and summer style. Reminiscent of its namesake fruit, peach is all the rage this year. In fact, Peach Fuzz is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2024.

Our fuzzy pink sweatshorts and matching cardigan offer an elevated casual look. As the hot weather cools down, you’ll need something with sleeves. A peach striped rugby sweater fits the bill. Wear this with your favorite pair of black pants and some casual loafers, and you’re ready for anything.

Bonus: Tie Dye

Can’t decide on a summer color? Wear them all! Tie dye men’s tops are coming back in a big way, so this is the year to add an eye-catching piece to your collection.

If you’re into blue and orange, this tie dye cardigan sweater will be right up your alley. Perfect for early summer days and cool nights, it goes great with a white tee underneath and some blue denim jeans.

Tie dye tees are another favorite. Rock one with some frayed denim shorts, and you’ll be the talk of the town.
