16 men's summer prints for 2020

Ready to amp up your wardrobe with a little more visual oomph this summer?

SG’s got you covered.

Below, we did the shopping for you and rounded up a whole bunch of snazzy, non-neutral summer staples to add to your rotation.

Below, shop 16 men’s summer prints, patterns, and stripes for 2020:

1. Old Navy, $13/5-pack

old navy face masks

SG Says: Sure, a face mask inventory full of solid hues is still #SGapproved (the important thing is…wear a f*cking mask, people!), but why not switch things up every so often with a bold patterned version?

This 5-pack from Old Navy comes in a grab bag of colors, prints, and patterns.

2. Mollusk, $44

mollusk tie dye t-shirt

SG Says: A little like wearing a fluffy cloud on your torso.

3. Vans, $60

checkered vans

SG Says: It’s worth saying every summer: checkered Vans will never not be cool.

4. Adidas, $26

adidas seersucker hat

SG Says: A baseball hat in seersucker is as good a way as any to update your wardrobe for summer without changing anything else about your style.

5. Topman, $30

topman abstract camo swim trunks

SG Says: Try pairing bold swim trunks with a white OCBD with a casually cool pool look.

Later, throw a denim jacket over the whole outfit when the sun goes down.

6. Brooks Brothers, $108

SG Says: Why should your weekend wear get all the fun? A light pink and blue sport shirt would look great on weekday Zoom calls.

Performance shorts on the bottom makes for a real summer 2020 lewk, just a suggestion. You could also dress up a bit (y’know, just for fun) with a cuffed chino and a boat shoe or penny loafer, too.

7. Old Navy, $27

old navy blue surfboard print camp collar shirt

SG Says: A camp collar shirt in navy will make you feel like a lost Rat Pack member on vacation. Don’t mind us while we casually swoon. 

Remember, camp collar shirts are an easy place to save $$$ in your summer wardrobe because you can find fashion-forward options at accessible price points, like the Old Navy style above.

So go ahead to try one this summer in a fun color or bold pattern. Trust.

8. Anderson’s $90

anderson's woven belt

SG Says: More interesting than your critter-covered belt. Less formal than an all-leather style.

9. Armor Lux, $55

armor lux red breton stripe shirt

SG Says: We’ve talked about our love of a man in nautical style and stripes before. Must we repeat ourselves here?

11. Urban Outfitters, $69

soludos Espadrilles

SG Says: What, like we weren’t going to include a pair of espadrilles in this shopping roundup? As if!
