    9 Tall Men's Fashion Tips for Summer: Dressing for Comfort & Style at Festivals, Concerts, and More

    With summer in full swing, we want to help you design the perfect summer outfit. Follow these tips to stay stylish this summer, tall guys:

    1. Avoid Vertical Stripes

    Vertical stripes will make you look even taller, and to put it blatantly, you don't need any help in that department. If you don't to give up patterns, try horizontal stripes (which will make you appear slightly shorter) or other fun, summer patterns.

    2. Choose Cotton

    If you're looking for the ideal shirt material this summer, choose cotton. Cotton is lightweight and breathable, which makes it ideal for hot summer weather. It's soft to the touch and hypoallergenic, and it's more durable than other materials, so you can count on your t-shirt for years. (P.S. all our Redwood Tall Outfitter shirts are made with 100% cotton;)

    3. Avoid Tight Pants

    Tight pants will make you look thinner than your really are, accentuating your height and making you look disproportionate. So skip them! Stick with well fitting jeans, sweatpants for tall guys, or a classic pair of shorts this summer.

    4. Contrast Bold Summer Colors

    Summer is the time to bust out your bold colors, so don't be shy. Try to pair contrasting colors together (like purple with yellow, orange with blue, etc.). Or, if you want to stick with only one bold color piece, balance it with black, white, or khaki pants.

    5. Invest in Tailored Pieces

    Sure, what you have works. With wedding season upon us, it's never a bad idea to invest in a suit tailored to your body type for all your fancy events. Sure it's a bit of a splurge, but sometimes it's worth it to invest in your comfort and confidence in what you wear!

    6. Skip the Parachutes & Try Fitted Shirts

    You've worked hard for that summer bod. Skip the parachute shirts and opt for fitted ones, shirts that actually fit your tall, slim build and flatter your body type. Our selection of shirts are designed to fit tall slim guys perfectly, but if you're looking for more summer options, check out our brother company: TallSlim Tees.

    7. Invest in Tall Men's Swim Shorts

    If you're tired of having to c inch your XL swim shorts into oblivion, it's time to invest in a swimsuit designed for your body type. There are a few places you can find tasteful swim shorts in extra long sizes, but start here to get an idea of what you need.

    8. Layering Isn't Just for Winter

    Hear me out: layering isn't just for winter jackets and sweaters. Throw an airy button up over your t-shirt for a casual look that adds dimension to your summer fashion. It allows more opportunity to match colors, and offers and more versatile outfit than just a plain t-shirt.

    9. Choose the Right Footwear

    Footwear is the highlight piece of your outfit. This summer, make sure you have the right selection of shoes - a pair of loafers for date night, sneakers for casual looks, tennis shoes for exercise, and sandals for summer activities.

    At the end of the day, the most important fashion advice we could give you is to be yourself. Don't follow a trend or tip that doesn't feel personal to you. Of course, don't be afraid to try something new - but don't be afraid to go against the grain either.

    Wishing you a wonderful, stylish summer!
