HOW WE DO PEAK-SUMMER LOOKS

August 18, 2019

Two heatwaves, record-breaking temperatures and crammed beer gardens. Summer has officially landed. With warm weather set to stick around for at least a while longer, we thought we’d take a look at how the gents at ASOS style out peak-summer looks. We're talking gear for festival living, cultured city breaks or just enjoying a cocktail (or three) at your nearest rooftop bar.

George, Analytics Graduate

What are you wearing?

An oversized ASOS DESIGN half-sleeve T-shirt, slightly tucked, with rolled sleeves for a casual look that stays cool and won’t show any unfortunate back sweat, you know? Gray shorts for a neutrally toned, smart-casual vibe. Down below, adidas Premiere sneakers in white to complete a clean look. Oh, and Nike socks (rolled down at the top to avoid brand clash!).

Favorite thing about summer?

Festivals — getting away from the day-to-day and letting loose while seeing my favorite bands/acts is always a calendar highlight.

What’s the most important part of your summer look?
Oversized T-shirts, for maximum comfort and ventilation of course. Particularly great for festivals or boozy BBQs.
Beer garden or rooftop bar?
Rooftop bar — nothing beats a good view, a couple of mates and a frosty beer watching the sunset over London.
Beach or city break?
City break — I love learning something on vacation and picking up some of the local culture and history. Not to say there won’t be a pool visit or three, though...

It's gotta be a bucket hat and sunnies combo.

Albert, Senior Finance Analyst 

What are you wearing?

ASOS DESIGN oversized textured T-shirt — straight from the sample sale. Plus, ASOS DESIGN slim shorts with pleats and textured stripes and Nike Zoom 2K kicks.
Favorite thing about summer?

Everyone's in a better mood. People want to spend more time outside, being active, and there's generally a more feel-good vibe (as long as you avoid the train!).

What's the most important part of your summer look?
Retro sunglasses and a white T-shirt. It's a timeless combo.

Beer garden or rooftop bar?
Beer garden — it's more chilled out.
Beach or city break?
City break, as long as there's a pool! I love coming back from exploring the city and taking a refreshing dip.
