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.

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.
