4 Summer Outfit Ideas for Guys

Things are heating up out there, which means it’s time to refresh your wardrobe! Here are four men’s summer outfit ideas featuring some of our fave tops, shorts, and jeans for guys.

1. Band Tees & Ripped Jeans

Ready to top the charts? This relaxed outfit radiates “retro” and pays respect to music icons. First, set the mood with a Super Soft AE Band Tee – go classic with the Stones or ’90s with Nirvana. 

Pair the tee with light-wash ripped skinny jeans for a bright and carefree look, then finish the ’fit with white sneakers and you’re ready for showtime! Tip: cuff your jeans for a more casual, summer-ready look. 

2. Dip-Dye Tees & Light-Wash Denim Shorts

This look is for guys who want an everyday ’fit that’s simply timeless. Start with a tee: our Super Soft Dip-Dyed tees elevate the classic crew neck t-shirt with vibrant, two-tone colors. Pair it with light-wash denim shorts and you’ve got a casual summer outfit for road trips, pool parties, and wherever your adventures take you.

3. Graphic Tees & White Denim Shorts

This is your sign to give white denim a try. White denim shorts are the best of both worlds: bright enough to fit your summer vibe, and neutral enough to let your graphic tee become the star of the show. Add an accessory like a bucket hat for an extra splash of color!

Tip: shorter-length 5.5” men’s shorts are comfortable, on-trend, and give your legs the sun they deserve.

4. Beach Flannel Layering

Layers? In the summer? Hear us out. Lightweight flannel shirts like the Super Soft Beach Flannel offer long-sleeve layering that’s not too toasty. Unbutton the flannel to show off your base layer, whether it’s a classic striped t-shirt or a Super Soft graphic tank top. 

Oh, and this outfit looks amazing with either khaki shorts or cuffed chinos, so you’re prepped for any weather. Talk about versatility!
