So, your office dress code doesn’t allow you to wear shorts. But you don’t need to feel the heat all summer long.
There’s a way to rock pants during these sunny months without having to deal with a sweaty situation. There’s a world of cool, lightweight bottoms that can make you look both professional and keep you cool, like a pair of ankle khakis or relaxed straight jeans?
Check out our guide on the best bottoms this summer below!
Cropped pants are just like khakis except they are shorter in length. Made of linen, they are the perfect pair for men who need to adhere to a business casual dress code at work. They are classy, but still give off a relaxed vibe that has the power to make any getup look more pulled together, which can also come in handy on a date or a night out with friends.
How to wear it: Look dapper in a white undershirt plus blazer combo. When it gets hot AF, you could just take off your outerwear without compromising the whole look. Complete the outfit by opting for oxfords, boat shoes, or loafers.
Cotton is the best go-to summer fabric. It's breathable, which can keep you comfortable in our humid weather. This is exactly why you should go for joggers—they are no longer restricted to the gym as they once were. New designs have pushed the once-humble sweatpants into the realms of acceptance for more work-casual situations.
How to wear it: The easiest way to rock joggers is to do so a bit carelessly. So grab a tee, throw on a pair, and put on your favorite trainers!
Men’s pants usually come in two defining fits: skinny and baggy. Relaxed straight, however, falls in between these categories, neither too tight nor too loose.
How to wear it: Relaxed fit jeans look great with almost anything—just don’t wear them with a baggy top. To add a fun spin to it, roll your hem twice (or thrice). Be careful your cuff doesn’t look too stiff or thick. The way you roll the end of your pants can affect your entire look (and, of course, help show off your cool pair of kicks).
Tattered jeans are the perfect alternative for your favorite denims during the hot weather. Whether you decide on wearing them knee-ripped or slashed throughout, you’ll surely look edgy.
How to wear it: Tattered jeans aren’t just made for the streets. You can actually wear it to the office as long you pair it with a more formal looking shirt. With a smarter top half like a button-down or a collared shirt, you can balance out the super casual vibe. If you want to give your look a rougher edge, boots will help do the trick.
