Looking for men’s dress shirts for Summer 2014 that are comfortable, classy and on trend this season? Well, look no further.
Recently, Philippe Perzi Vienna brought you a rundown of the key menswear trends for this Summer 2014, as presented by GQ at the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out. As promised, below we present some of our favourite men’s dress shirts for Summer from the Philippe Perzi Vienna collection that will keep you on trend this season – inside and outside the office.
Blue Men’s Dress Shirts for Summer
Blue is one of those classic colours that is so wearable and looks great on all men. The blue on blue trend was given the nod from GQ as a hot look for men’s fashion this Summer, reinforcing what we saw all over the catwalks during the Spring/Summer 2014 fashion shows in Europe. Many designers from Calvin Klein, Tom Ford, Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace sent models down the runway in varying shades of blue.
Lightweight Men’s Dress Shirts for Summer
With the mercury soaring into the high 20s and 30s, choosing a shirt that breathes well, minimises sweating and feels comfortable against the skin is paramount. It is for that reason that the Philippe Perzi Vienna team has chosen fabrics that are designed for a lightweight and airy feel. One of those specialty fabrics from Thomas Mason is called Zephir, named after ‘Zephyr,’ a very light and gentle wind. The term Zephir, has become an internationally recognised description of a lightweight gingham fabric whose number of warp ends are similar to the weft picks, giving a very even check appearance. Sounds technical – but the point is, it looks good and it is definitely what you want to be wearing during the warmer months.
Philippe Perzi Vienna also knows that men like to loosen the tie, open the top button and roll up their sleeves in the hot weather, so some of our men’s dress shirts have been designed with contrasting fabric inside the collar and cuffs. A stylish look and one of those small details that sets our mens dress shirts apart from the rest. Check out some of our men’s dress shirts for Summer 2014 in Zephir fabric. Steel and Stripes, Swagger, Harvey Specter, Wanderlust and below clockwise L-R: Niki Louder (Mauve), Monkey Mia Magic, Viola on my mind, A Schilling for your thoughts.
Denim is in this Summer 2014, even double denim has been touted as a hot trend for men this season. Wondering how to incorporate this look into your corporate wardrobe whilst still managing to be on trend and comfortable? Try wearing Philippe Perzi Vienna’s dress shirt, Swagger – an intense dark blue shirt with a ‘denim’ like finish, but made from a lightweight fabric (Zephir) with a 2 button cuff. You can have the best of both worlds with this men’s dress shirt – a denim look but a lightweight feel. Whether you wear it with a suit, chinos or your favourite jeans, Swagger is one of our favourite men’s dress shirts for Summer 2014.
Not so much a trend as a main staple in every stylish mans wardrobe; the nautical look will again feature this Summer 2014.
Classic red, white and blue combinations are clean, fresh and elegant. Some of Philippe Perzi Vienns’s favourite men’s dress shirts for Summer which channel the nautical trend include: Fira, Midnight Tango, Sky Blue Tango, Yachts of Fun and Sloane Ranger.
Micro trend pattern
In the Spring/Summer 2014 fashion shows in Europe, designers placed a new focus on outfits with bold patterns and graphics. We saw Aztec print tipped as a key look for menswear this summer by the likes of GQ at the Vogue Fashion’s Night out, and the Guardian reported; “the micro-trend with the most clout looks likely to be clothes that feature a thick stripe, a grid or some sort of graphic colour block. e.g. Carven, Kenzo, Givenchy, Lanvin and Wooyoungmi.” So, if you’re wondering how to incorporate this trend into a more wearable form, why not consider some of our brightly coloured men’s dress shirts with thick Bengal stripes, windowpane checks or micro checks. Some of our favourite men’s dress shirts for Summer 2014 which showcase this trend include: Wild Blue Yonder, Catalina Tango, But Mostly Me and Chelsea Charmer.
