Summer Professional Wear Pyramid

Capsule Wardrobe: Menswear Essentials for Summer

We created a Winter Professional Pyramid for those interested in slimming down their wardrobe with only the essentials based on the capsule wardrobe idea. Before that, we put together a Summer Prep Pyramid. Now we’re here to offer a Summer Professional Pyramid for the working man who still wants to utilize mixing and matching with wardrobe staples.

1 Coat

We often forget about outerwear during the summer months due to heat. One thing to never be left without is a quality raincoat. A classic tan raincoat will keep you dry and stylish all season long.

2 Shoes

For a change from winter shoes, try out lighter colors. Keep brogues and loafers in the rotation.

3 Blazers

The key to summer blazers is lightweight material. Keep light gray, classic navy, and off-white jackets handy for the office and outdoor festivities.

4 Pants

Mix in lighter tones in dress pants like gray while also keeping classic navy handy. Invest in some chinos in tan and olive.

5 Shirts

Keep two to three solid dress shirts in your wardrobe while adding a few patterned options.

6 Neckties

Keep the patterns bright and fun! Summer is the time to try out a new style.
