For this summer, the high street label Mango has plenty of great staples for men, and to make your life easier, we went through all the items available to select the best menswear for you. We chose atemporal and smart casual pieces that will last several seasons, and paid particular attention to the material, favouring natural fabrics like pure cotton and linen that are fresher for summer and are affordable but look high-end.

 

Chinos, Khakis, Check Trousers and Bermudas

The best of Mango menswear

The perfect trousers for summer are chinos and khakis that are both classic and contemporary, and never go out of fashion. The neutral colours are easy to wear, you can pair them with a colourful T-shirt or Hawaiian shirt with sneakers for a casual and modern look or with a more formal shirt, blazer and moccasins for an office look. Bright coloured trousers are fun and elegant for men. From mustard to red or green, all colours are allowed, and they look great in summer. The check trousers worn by The Terminator’s son have a vintage Venice Beach feel and look very cool. Classic Bermudas are a must for the weekends at the beach or countryside, and you don’t have to be a surfer to wear the Hawaiian style swim trunks. Pair them with a white shirt with rolled-up sleeves and espadrilles for a laid-back and effortlessly chic look.

 

 

Blazers, Trench and Jackets

Even in summer, you will need a jacket for the evening or a blazer to go to the office and for a smart night out. Linen and cotton are the ideal fabrics as they are more breathable. The trenchcoat and khaki jackets are classic staples that you can wear with anything, from a formal white shirt to trendy Hawaiian shirts.

 

 

Shirts

The best of Mango menswear

Pure cotton or linen shirts are ideal for the hotter days. Pair them with a suit to go to the office or roll up the sleeves and wear them with Bermuda shorts or even swim trunks to go to the beach. Although I prefer long sleeve shirts with rolled up sleeves, these vintage looking Hawaiian shirts are very funky and will look pretty stylish with chinos or jeans and a jacket.
