Men’s Health fashion editor Azeez Jacobs provided insights into the next top-five trends for the summer, hot off the runway. This season mix laid back elements to otherwise polished looks for a relaxed feel. Here’s what you should have in your closet:

Stripes are popular for men this summer. It’s a menswear staple. The difference this summer is that they will be seen in varying widths and colours.
Real Men Pink
An unexpected colour for this season is pink, in particular a warm, dusty pink. If you’re looking for a subtle way to incorporate the trend without going bold, simply add a hint of it by wearing a pink crew-neck T-shirt under your blazer.
Sportswear has been one of the biggest risers in menswear over the past couple of seasons. Key casual pieces have become more acceptable in all situations and can even be worn with tailored items.

Neutrals are more popular, which means it’s easy for you to mix and match these colours into your wardrobe.
The blue suit is king. Blue is a fresh colour for summer and a great way to inject some colour into your smart wear.
