Summer officially begins on June 21st this year. For many the season starts with Memorial Day which was just a few days ago. Regardless of when the season officially starts, everyone around the nation is in a summer state of mind.

Summer fashions and apparel for men this season are consistent with trends from seasons past with a few key essentials added in.  Cool lightweight fabrics such as cotton and linen are as popular this summer, as they were for the past fiveyears. However, there are a few Summer 2015 trends to take note of.CARAVELLE-43A117

Stripes are the hottest look of the season in both vertical and horizontal patterns in everything from blazers, sweaters, dress and sport shirts to shorts, pants and socks. Note, it is best to make one stripe statement at a time. Hence a striped cotton sweater should be paired with solid colored shorts or jeans.

Washed denim is the go-to fabric this summer in traditional shades of blue to red, white, black and gray. Pairing a denim jacket with a contrasting denim pair of jeans is a popular look, as is wearing a pair of denim jeans with a cotton or linen blazer.

Red, yellow and blue are the top shades of the season along with the traditional summer color white. Interestingly blue and white is the top color combo to be seen in this season.  Many top designers included the color duo in their summer shows last fall.
