The Idle Man sticks to it's well formed roots for this season's lookbook. Focusing on simplicity and transitional wearing, the latest collection pairs stand-out pieces with strong basics in neutral tones for a completely wearable look, without compromising in the style stakes. Whether you're looking for holiday inspiration or an urban street aesthetic, The Idle Man has everything you need to see you through the sunny season.

While we may be preoccupied with planning our holiday wardrobe, the Great British weather doesn't always live up to expectations. With this in mind, summer wear doesn't just mean shorts, vests and T-shirts. The Idle Man has created a lookbook which covers a wider breadth of looks, rather than just holiday wear - so you'll be covered for day-to-day summer outfits as well as sunshine getaways.

What's New

As summer arrives, it's time to update your transitional wardrobe. Standout pieces in The Idle Man's collection include light packaway cagoules for times when the weather just won't cooperate. Bright colours bring a classic summer pop to casual looks, with pastel palettes making an appearance for a contemporary summer look.

Trousers are also a massively undervalued summer wardrobe staple - their versatility makes them a perfect base for a host of looks, from laid-back Southern Californian styling to workwear-inspired street edge. Elasticated waist, relaxed trousers give a seasonal update, with straight leg chinos remaining a strong staple in the collection.

Keeping things simple, The Idle Man's Summer 2017 lookbook follows a natural progression from our Spring collection. Presenting a comprehensive summer wardrobe was in key in selecting the collection, utilising everything from outerwear and relaxed trousers to shorts and accessories to complete the summer look.

Summer 2017 Trends

A neutral colour palette remains a strong theme throughout the collection, with tonal looks inspiring utility styling, emphasised by workwear favourites including layered khaki shirts. Playing around with different tonal shades across the look adds interest, and works really well with navy and off-white notes.

Pops of colour and pastel accents break up the looks this season, adding summery vibes for a clean, fresh aesthetic. Where the look is kept simple, prints are definitely the statement-making vehicle for Summer 2017. Revere collar resort shirts and swim shorts channel the trend well, sticking to tried and tested palm, leaf and floral prints.

On That Note

The Idle Man's Summer 2017 lookbook perfectly strikes the balance between classic summer vibes and a truly wearable, comprehensive wardrobe for the modern man. Tonal shades underline the look and channel a key trend for the season, with accents of pastel tones and statement prints adding a contemporary edge, yet sticking to the heritage inspired aesthetic of The Idle Man. So whether you're looking for statement summer pieces or staple favourites that'll see you through the whole year, then we've got it covered.
