Unless you’re lucky enough to live out in the sticks, by the seaside, or have a three-month vacation booked, it’s likely much of your summer will be spent pounding the pavement. To get you prepped, we’ve put together a look fit for the city that’s just as aesthetically inspiring as the beautiful countryside.
your summer in the city outfit asos style advice

On a hot summer's day, the urban jungle can be a difficult environment. Without vast open spaces, the crammed cityscape boxes in the heat, meaning you need to be on your summer style A-game to cope. So, start with a striped slogan tee and patched shorts, checking trend boxes and keeping things lightweight in the process.


With countless windows reflecting the sun at every angle, you’ll also need the accessories to stylishly protect yourself. Here’s where your pink logo cap and round sunnies come into their own, while, elsewhere, a pair of adidas Originals LA OGs will offer the perfect blend of durability and style. After the sun sets and the cool of the evening arrives, however, showcase your summery outfit's versatility by taking an orange, acid-washed, checked shirt and black bomber from your handy Carhartt bag and layer up like a day-to-night boss.
