17 best mens summer outfits to shop


When was the last time your man’s closet received an upgrade? And we’re not talking about swapping out his basketball shorts for Lululemon ones — we mean outfits that will take him from the golf course to date night, the office and beyond.

Named one of Hollywood’s most powerful stylists by the Hollywood Reporter, Andrew Weitz has an expansive and ranging resume, outfitting the likes of Tom Brady, Elon Musk and more. But now, Weitz is stopping by the 3rd Hour of TODAY to share four simple yet effective looks that will elevate any guy’s wardrobe — kids included. From sneakers that’ll add a pop of color to any neutral outfit to cargo pants that are both functional and stylish, these fashion picks start at $15.

Look one

Express Navy Straight Chino Pant

Weitz notes that he may already have some of these staples stocked in his closet, but a little upgrade never hurt anybody! Look one is great for the golf course, and even better during a date night, he says.

These “hyper stretch” pants from Express are made out of a cotton, polyester and spandex blend fabric that give him the ability to move around while still remaining comfortable.

Express Tipped Cotton Blend Sweater Polo

Upon reading the words “sweater polo,” you’re probably thinking this is the last thing he’ll want to wear when the weather is warm.

Designed with a breathable cotton, Express notes that this polo remains lightweight, while still serving a polished, put together look.

Cole Haan Men’s GrandSeries Jensen Sneaker

Reviewers enjoy the “minimalistic” look these sneakers add to an elevated everyday outfit, no matter which of the three colors you choose from.

Plus, they further appreciate how versatile they are, being able to wear them to the office, with dress pants and while running errands. Rubber covers the entirety of the shoe, helping them to remain durable.

Weitz also recommends these shoes for look #4, further down the page.

Look two

Coofandy Cotton Linen Shirt & Short Set

Experts say that linen is one of the best fabrics to wear in warm weather, thanks to its antimicrobial properties and breathability.

Weitz further emphasizes the appeal in a set like this because it’s easy to toss on for backyard barbecues, pool parties, parades and more. Available in nine colors, this no-fuss set will keep him cool and comfortable on even the warmest of days.

Birkenstock Arizona Essentials Sandals

These EVA sandals are a Shop TODAY favorite because of how easy they are to slip on and head out the door. And, they’re simple to clean as well.

Previously a winner of Shop TODAY’s Travel Gear Awards, editorial director Adrianna Brach wears these “all summer long.”

Look three

Ten West Apparel Sleepwear Set

Weitz says to do away with the old tee and boxer shorts that men traditionally reach for and instead upgrade his pajama set to this chic option.

For just $15, he can lounge in luxury with this flannel set that reviewers love because they’re lightweight enough to wear year-round.

Pamir Leather Slippers

When is the last time he swapped out his slippers? This suede and leather pair easily slide on for premium comfort, both indoors and out.

The brand recommends sizing up, as they run small.

Look four

Phillies Jersey

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — for some! If he enjoys America’s favorite pastime, surprise him with merchandise that will take his love for the game to the next level.

BP Cream Cargo Pants

Just because he’s going to a baseball game doesn’t mean he can’t look good! Pair the jersey above with these cargo pants that are currently 70% off.

This trending design provides function along with style, due to its multiple pockets and baggier fit.

Old Navy Navy Cargo Pants

These cargos from Old Navy have a more snug fit, to look more tailored for nicer events and occasions. Available in four different colors and a wide range of sizes, reviewers had high praises for the comfort and quality of these bottoms.

Polo Ralph Lauren Youth White T-Shirt

A basic white tee is a must-have staple in anyone’s closet, to have on hand to wear under button-ups, sports jerseys, or to pair with jeans for a more casual look.

They won’t be complaining about how itchy this tee is, as it’s made with soft cotton.

LittleSpring Youth Cargo Pants

He can match Dad in these cargos, that have an elastic and stretchy waistband for a more comfortable fit that he can grow into as well.

Available in eight different colors and designs he’ll have fun mixing and matching, the brand notes that these pants were sewn with double the stitches, helping them be more durable compared to other pairs.

Gap Youth Cargo Pants

These cargos feature a jogger pant-like style, with elastic cuffs at the ankles and waist, helping them look and feel more fitted.

Class Club Youth Button Up Shirt

Youth Philadelphia Phillies MLB Jersey

Whether it’s their first game or their hundredth, a baseball jersey is the norm (and the easiest to throw on) when it comes to attending baseball games.

This retro version will help them stand out amongst the crowd, earning them compliments left and right.

Nike Youth Air Force 1

A pair of shoes ties together the whole outfit, especially if they’re wearing neutrals up top. Add a pop of color and a fun design with either of the options above or below- a brand they’re sure to recognize and love.

Even better? Podiatrists recommend Nike for their wide variety of offerings and ability to appeal to a number of different activities and feet.
