Bohemian spirit: Take on summer in laidback looks from MR PORTER


The golden heat of summer is upon us – meaning it’s time for a little wardrobe refresh. The reliable layering codes of the colder months no longer apply while trusted fabrics, like denim, don’t spell comfort anymore. The most fun season of the year, with its sunny beach strolls, music festivals, and summer holidays, requires an infusion of bright and upbeat summer style – and MR PORTER is here to help. 

With menswear evolving in ever more vibrant and luxurious directions, there are plenty of options to choose from. In fact, probably a few too many options. Happily, the experts over at MR PORTER have put together the Bohemian Spirit edit, allowing you to filter through their top picks to curate the perfect breezy summer wardrobe for every occasion. A symphony of bright, bold colours and lightweight fabrics, this hot list is the perfect inspiration to help you look your best even in the scorching summer heat.

Strolls Around The City

London has a truly magical air in summer. And, as you transition from sheltering indoors to spending long, warm days strolling around the city, having picnics in the park, and alfresco dining with an Aperol spritz, make sure your outfit reflects your easy vibe.

Linen is a fail-safe hot-weather option and Fresocbol Carioca’s white straight-leg trousers are the ideal building block for a casual seasonal outfit. Pair them with a sunshine yellow T-shirt from Visvim or Karu Research’s brown camp-collar shirt embroidered with vibrant flowers – a unique alternative to basic shirts. Finish with a pair of statement sunglasses, like these fun blue-gradient aviators by Jacques Marie Mage.

Beach Days

Beach days are synonymous with summer. Whether you spend a week soaking in the sun and swimming in the salty waves of the Med or a few hours with the British sand between your toes, it pays to have a beach-ready look on hand. Shorts are essential and Boglioli’s pastel orange linen designs are a bold but timeless option. If you’re in an experimental mood, look to Mr P.’s sky-blue knit cotton shirt to make a style statement.

As for finishing touches? Accessorise with a Loro Piana bucket hat for stylish 360-degree sun protection or add a pop of colour with Bottega Veneta’s braided leather bracelet.

Festival Fun In The Sun

Whether you’re a casual concert-goer or a passionate participator, there’s an art to dressing for a festival. Having fun with your sartorial choices is essential, as is staying cool and comfortable in the heat. Camp-collar shirts and cargo pants are the summer’s unofficial off-duty uniform, making them your best bet for a stylish festival look too. Opt for a vibrant Dries Van Noten shirt with psychedelic purple swirls worn over Story Mfg.’s cotton-canvas cargos loaded with pockets for practicality.

Balance out this relatively low-key outfit with colourful accessories, like Loewe’s blue curvy cat-eye sunglasses or stacks of Polite Worldwide’s bright beaded bracelets.

Summer Parties

Summer weekends are for garden parties in the country and afternoon barbecues that go on well into the evening. Mastering the perfect summer semi-formal wardrobe, while still keeping it light and fun, will help you nail the dress code every time. Look again, to linen trousers as your go-to here: Zegna’s light blue chinos are endlessly versatile. 

On top, a white cotton-poplin shirt is a classic and The Row’s oversized iteration has sophisticated mother-of-pearl button detailing. Add a touch of street-style chicness to your outfit with Zegna’s suede espadrilles and elevate the look with elegant accessories like Miansai’s gold signet ring.

Summer Holidays

Even with all the excitement of an upcoming holiday, packing can seem like a chore. Unless, of course, you have a suitcase full of outfits ready to make bronzed skin pop and all your pictures Instagram-ready. The key here is blending style with functionality. Monitaly’s cotton Bermuda shorts are roomy for a comfortable fit and will look great paired with a bright Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza shirt emblazoned with a tropical fish print to embrace those island vibes.

If you’ve yet to embrace the resurgence of sandals for men, this is the perfect opportunity, and Mr P.’s buckled suede sandals are a great option. No holiday wardrobe is complete without a pair of sunglasses, so make sure to pack a classic pair like Saint Laurent’s classic black shades.
