New Summer Style Trends That Will Surprise You

  • Nike Air Huarache White
    The all-white effect

    To stand out sometimes it is best to keep things simple. All-white sneaker colorways will never get old and you can bet they are going to be one of the most common things you see on feet this summer. A crispy all-white palette just keeps things minimal and cool enough to make a statement while it is hot. The spring/summer months are the best time to rock them because of the lack of mud and dirt all over the place. I highly recommend picking up some all-white Nike Air Huaraches or the always wise choice of white-on-white Uptowns.

    Nike has been dropping some great products in their Sportswear line as of recently. The Tech Fleece pants have become a favorite and one of the most noticeable trends throughout the year. The knit shorts are the perfect shorts to rock in the summer to keep you comfortable. Designed with Dri-FIT fabric, they will keep you dry and will make your life easier to maneuver around.

    Lifestyle sneakers

    Not saying you should hang up and retire from wearing signature sneakers in the summer (a fresh pair of Jordan XIs will never get old during the summer). But in this day in age brands are pushing more lifestyle sneakers. Nike and adidas have both been on the forefront of producing some great casual sneakers to add to your repertoire, such as the Roshe Run, Stan Smith, Tubular, Boost, FlyKnit, Huarache, and more.

    The folks at Stance are currently building one of the hottest brands on the sportswear market. Fresh off a deal with the NBA to be their official on-court sock, the team has linked endorsement deals with guys like Dwyane Wade, Klay Thompson, Andre Drummond, and Chandler Parsons. The socks are awesome and one of the best when it comes to style and comfort. They sport an advanced cushion support system, which places a denser weave in areas of the sock. The mesh vents and quick wick fabric keep your feet cool while an elastic arch and self-adjusting cuff follows your moves. Whether you are hooping or relaxing, these socks are comfortable and have everything for you to get ahead and show that your sock game is on the come up.

    Everyone should own a couple of printed T-Shirts for the summer. Perfect for a casual outing–some art on your shirt will help you maximize your outfit. They do not only make you standout but they also bring life to your wardrobe.

    Bucket hats

    Buckets hats made their return last summer when they exploded as a trend. The trend has been one of the best fashion hammy downs that has been worn by guys like Run-D.M.C. all the way down to Schoolboy Q. A bucket hat is always going to set you apart from the pack.
