Get your wardrobe summer-ready with these top sustainable fashion picks for men.
Looking for a sustainable, summer capsule wardrobe that can be worn year after year? Look no further. From cotton beach shirts to bright accessories, we have collated some of the best and most essential items that every man will need this summer and for every summer hereafter. Bursting with colour and print, our top picks will have you feeling as though you’re already basking under the glorious English sunshine.
With all the items being sustainably made within the UK, you can shop away with the knowledge that these stylish summer selections are made with love for both the people and our planet.
These are our top picks for men’s summer fashion:
Part of Playa’s Maldives range, this organic white cotton shirt is great for any special summer occasion. With a simple style, the Finolhu shirt can be worn with any colour and paired for many different looks. The collarless feature creates a smart appearance without the feeling of being overdressed. This is a versatile summer must have, for a contemporary yet refined look.
What says summertime more than swim shorts and watermelon? Combine the two together and you get the fashion epitome of a hot summer’s day. These vibrant shorts are perfect for a day at the beach or picturesque open swimming baths. As they are made from recycled plastic bottles, you can purchase them with the satisfaction that these shorts will help take care of the places we love.
Inspired by the modern minimalism of Scandinavian fashion and the elegance of Japanese style, this bag has merged both to create a beautiful Japandi style that is handcrafted for you. Each bag is spacious with a reinforced handle making it a fantastic bag for work, shopping, or even a day spent basking in the sun at the park. The minimalist pattern also adds a little creativity to any outfit.
The Apocalypse Top comes in white and a pastel blue with a stylish geometric pattern, with a beaming sun and rainfall over waves. With rain and sun fairly typical of a British summer, this stylish t-shirt appears as an unintentionally witty view of what England is really like in summer. Printed using water-based inks, the t-shirt is much kinder to the planet than other forms of printing.
This mushroom print t-shirt is every sustainable raver’s dream. With festival season well upon us, a graphic tee is a great balance between funky and sustainable. The psychedelic print creates a playfulness, alongside the slogan “for a fresher mind”. Yet with a majority white colour, it is a top that can be worn on multiple occasions with different colours on bottom.
Flip flops are inevitably a summer essential. However, often made with harmful plastics they can, unfortunately, be damaging to the environment. Thankfully, Waves have created flip flops that are 100% biodegradable and do not cause harm to marine life or pile up in landfills. Made from FSC-certified natural Sri Lankan rubber, these sandals are eco-friendly and come in eight colours to cater to all tastes.
Named the Santorini shirt for understandable reasons, this eco-friendly shirt transports you, with its fresh colours of the Mediterranean. The soft mint hue is gentle enough that it can be worn with multiple colours, yet bright enough that it complements warm weather and sun-kissed skin. Made in breathable material to keep you cool during the day but thick enough substance to keep you warm in the cooler evenings.
If you’re looking to make a statement this summer, then we have just the t-shirt for you. The ‘F*ck Nudes Send Me Your Playlist’ top by Blonde Gone Rogue is cheeky and funny, perfect for someone with that playful side that they want to share. Made ethically from 100% certified GOTS certified organic cotton, it is soft and light. Great for those warmer days.
For a more understated look, the Noah swim shorts are a stylish classic print that can be worn time and time again. The neutral geometric print stands perfectly against a teal background, just like the sand and sea, for a true holiday feel. These incredibly soft and stylish shorts are also made from recycled plastic to hopefully be gentler to our seas.
Bright and summery colours don’t always have to be done through clothing and if you are someone who struggles to incorporate colour into your wardrobe, then a really easy method is through accessories. This neon orange silicone watch by Ksana is vibrant and sleek. Made waterproof, this is a highly versatile watch that could be worn from a day at the beach to an evening meal.
