Style Roundup: 16 Men's Summer Prints, Patterns and Stripes

Make a splash with pieces that feel special

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 few snazzy, non-neutral summer staples to add to your rotation.

Below, shop 16 men’s summer prints, patterns and stripes that are anything but boring:

1. Boardies, $70

SG Says: Sure, a pair of solid-hued swim trunks will always be in style, but why not switch things up every so often with a bold patterned pair?

2. Mollusk, $44

3. Vans, $65

SG Says: Have we mentioned that we’re into camo this year? Oh, we have? And also Vans?

Great! Just wanted to make sure we were clear.

4. Adidas, $26

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. J.Crew, $55

SG Says: Try pairing bold palm print shorts with a white OCBD and denim jacket or thrown together with a graphic tee and a bomber.

6. Todd Snyder, $168

SG Says: Why should your weekend wear get all the fun? A light purple madras sport shirt would look great at work with cuffed chino and a boat shoe or penny loafer (depending on how formal your office is).

7. Bonobos, $88

SG Says: A muted short-sleeve floral button-up styled under a khaki suit or paired with salmon chino shorts? Don’t mind us while we casually swoon. 

Adventurous shirts are an easy place to save in your summer wardrobe because you can find fashion-forward options at accessible price points, so go ahead to try out a bold color or pattern. Trust.

8. Anderson’s $88

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

9. Armor Lux, $45

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

10. Old Navy, $5

SG Says: Flip flops have a place, and that place is by the pool. Might as well have fun with the one pair you own and wear.

…And yes, that is our not-so-subtle way of saying, Please don’t wear flip flops anywhere but poolside.

11. Midwest Kids, $90


SG Says: Did you really think we were going to let you go without one more tie-dye piece in this summer shopping roundup!?

12. Scotch & Soda, $89

13. Quay Australia, $60

SG Says: Men’s summer prints extends to your accessories, like these Quay Australia tortoiseshell sunglasses.

14. Gap, $10

SG Says: These striped socks from Gap are a fun l’il way to show your support for Pride this year.

Even better? 15% of sales from the collection go to the United Nations Foundation in support of the UN Free & Equal Campaign for LGBTI equality.

15. Soludos, $48

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

16. Reyn Spooner, $85

SG Says: Like love and money, you can never have too many pairs of swim trunks.
