Men’s fashion during high summer and transitional weather can be a tricky move to play, but with renting it doesn’t have to be. Our expert men’s stylist talks us through the pieces to pick for the last of summer.
This time next summer, different men’s pieces will be in fashion, so is there any point in purchasing new garments you won’t want to wear next year? That’s one of the beauties of renting- picking pieces that work now, without paying large amounts of money for them to sit in your wardrobe and gather dust. Then comes early September, where there’s a real mix of temperatures and weather which makes styling unpredictable. Fortunately. by renting your clothes, you can choose a box with an array of pieces to keep you cool or layer up to stay warm.
This box was created with versatile, mix and match pieces in summer blue shades. With three shirts, a complementary tee and some comfortable shorts, these pieces can overlap each other or be worn with essentials you already have in your wardrobe.
A simple yet premium tee is the easiest style hack for topping up your box. Team this Tommy Jeans Classic Logo Tee with shorts or jeans, wear it to the pub or at home, or throw a shirt on top if the weather cools down. With The Devout’s range of t-shirt brands, it’s easy to find the item that will become your go-to for the next month.
A selection of shirts to last throughout the month is a great idea for your rental box. The Original Penguin Collarless Shirt creates an alternative look to the classic shirt perfect for date nights and smart-casual drinks. The flattering and super-soft Selected Homme Denim Shirt was made for weekend drinks and meeting up with friends. Finally, the ultra-popular and versatile Farah Steen Shirt is smart enough for the office and cool enough for the weekend alike. Wear these pieces on their own with the shorts in my edit, with your favourite jeans, joggers or trousers, or wear over the Tommy tee.
To finish this box, I’ve chosen a pair of Selected Homme Straight Fit Chino Shorts, ideal for the last few days of summer sun. With an ultra-soft organic cotton fabric, team this with all of the shirts and tees in the edit, and swap them for a fitted pair of skinnies next month.
