Unless you bathe in antiperspirant, it is likely that you’re going to sweat a lot during the summer. Staying cool in a 100-degree weather is all about choosing the right fabric. To help you stay cool and comfortable throughout the season, the shirts you put into your summer rotation should be soft, breathable and absorbs moisture.

When shopping for clothes, be on the lookout for summer-friendly fabrics like cotton, linen and jersey. They are lightweight and airy, making them the best fabrics for your summer outfits. Choosing the right fabrics can prevent your body from getting as overheated and allow your skin to breathe.

When buying a shirt, make sure you know the difference between a t-shirt and an undershirt. Undershirts are lightweight and see-through. They should never be worn as outer garment.

Select the right color

White shirts are the plainest and simplest of all clothing, but they are considered as the most versatile of all the wardrobe staples. They work well with anything, whether you decide to go for shorts, chinos, jeans, skinny fit or relaxed fit. White, classic crew neck shirts are also easy to layer without looking out of place. Plus, they really show off a good tan. A white shirt is like a friend you hang out with all the time during the summer.

Just like the classic, whit tee, a black shirt is also a versatile piece of clothing. Most men have it in their wardrobe.  A black shirt is a welcome break from the standard white and provides such an easy way to look good. However, black t-shirts, or any type of black clothing, often get a bad reputation for not being summer-appropriate.

Despite the rising popularity of bold printed shirts, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the urge to wear a black shirt. Yes, you can wear black in the summer, but the key to staying cool and comfortable in the warm weather is all in the fabrics you choose.

Get the right fit

The key to pulling off men’s short sleeve shirts is by finding one that fits well. You know it’s the right fit when you can pinch about 1 to 2 inches of fabric on either side of your waist. This rule applies to all men, no matter your body type.  Tight-fitting shirts may look great, especially if you want to flaunt that ripped body you’ve worked so hard for. However, they will show off sweat patches easily and may contribute to making you feel warmer. Opt for relaxed fit instead.

The sleeves shouldn’t be too tight or too loose. They should hit around the mid-bicep (even if you don’t so much have biceps) and lightly hug your arms. When wearing a crew neck shirt, make sure that it doesn’t fit too tightly around your neck. It shouldn’t be too loose either. If you can see your collar bone or if the neck line looks stretched out, it’s too big for you. Remember, fit is the cornerstone of good style.

Wear it in style

Like good shoes and a decent haircut, Men’s short sleeve shirts are a fundamental part of a man’s wardrobe. It can be worn as your only upper garment or under a casual jacket. If you own a statement jacket that’s been burning a hole in your closet, now would be a great time to put it to use. If you are attending an event, you can wear it over a white shirt and then pair it with chino pants and loafers. This puts you in the middle of smart casual and way too overdressed. You may also put on a denim shirt over a white tee. This has been a war winning strategy for men since forever.

To achieve a summery vibe, you can go a little simpler with your outfit. T-shirts also look good on its own, provided that you nail the fit. The simple minimalism of a white tee would look great when paired with a decent pair of jeans and canvas sneakers. For a summer look, finish off with some lightweight sunglasses.

The key to looking great in a t-shirt is by knowing when and where you should wear it. Men’s short sleeve shirts are best suited for casual settings. You can wear it to the beach, gym, concert, sporting events, night out with friends, and barbecue parties.

Tees are not appropriate for formal occasions. They will never be appropriate for weddings or even funerals. When done right, they can be stylish and suitable for more than just working out or going to the beach.
