With casual, travel-ready essentials and sports-inspired accessories topping the men’s list, it looks like guys are getting ready for some much-needed summer vacation.

Read on to learn more about what’s trending for men this season!

Pool Slides

Nike Benassi “Just Do It” Sandals in Black/Game Red/White | in Black/White | Under Armour Ignite V SL Shoes

It used to be that you’d only see pool slides in locker rooms, worn only after games, but recently even non-athletes have been sporting this style. They’re super comfortable and easy to get in and out of, perfect for your Sunday slowdown look — and even more perfect for summer months when you’re lounging poolside or by the beach.

Nike Air Huarache Shoes

Nike Air Huarache Shoes in Black

White shoes were all the rage last year, but this season, it looks like we’re going back to black with a classic from Nike. The Air Huarache started out in the ’90s as a running shoe: its iconic outer cage and heel strap, combined with a foam sole with Nike Air cushioning, provide tons of support and comfort for your feet. It’s since become a staple of street style and athleisure.

The bestselling black shade will go with anything in your wardrobe, meaning you only have to pack one pair of shoes for your Holy Week trip. You can also check out other colorways for the Air Huarache over on ZALORA.

Messenger Bags

Backpacks are great, but sometimes they’re too big for everyday use. Some places like museums and stadiums won’t even let you bring them in because of their bulk. A good alternative to carry your stuff is a messenger bag — they look stylish, are easy to wear and secure, and in the right design and material can go with both your work and weekend wear.

Sports Caps

Looks like guys are ready to beat the heat with the right accessories. Unlike your regular old caps, sports caps are specifically designed to help you stay cool under the sun, with features like sweat-wicking material and mesh inserts for ventilation.

Hipster Brief Packs

3-in-1 Band Hipster Brief Packs from BENCH | Assorted 8802-A Briefs from George and Mary

Basic, no-fuss underwear is consistently on our men’s bestsellers list, and for good reason — why go away from something that works? And once you’ve found something that feels comfortable, it makes sense to stock up on it.
