10 Casual Summer Outfit Ideas | 2017 Summer Lookbook

553 ratings | 25518 views
Anson Belt & Buckle: https://ansonbelt.com/ Thanks to Anson Belt for sponsoring this video! Looking for casual summer outfit ideas? This lookbook video will help. I'm going to show you 10 casual summer outfit ideas from my own wardrobe. But before we dive into the outfits, I want you to pay attention to a couple of things: First, these outfits are pretty simple. Nothing flashy here. Just classic, somewhat muted colors that work for pretty much any type of person. These outfits work for two reasons: because the clothes fit well, and because the colors work well together. Second, everything I'm wearing - the shirts, pants, shorts, shoes and accessories - is all interchangeable. This is because it's all part of the same color palette - olive, navy, light blue, brown, khaki and grey. This great because it makes getting dressed super easy, and it means you change the whole vibe of an outfit just by swapping out your shoes and accessories. So you'll probably notice that many of these outfits are just slight variations of each other. Enjoy and leave any questions below in the comments section. All links to what I'm wearing in the video are below (by category, in order of appearance). — SHORTS Blue linen: ▪ Tan chino → http://mdst.mn/2u4RqHq ▪ Olive chino → http://fave.co/2t0DC0P PANTS ▪ Chinos → http://rstyle.me/n/cpxbchn4v6 ▪ Linen (similar) → http://fave.co/2tDWXBU SHIRTS/JACKET ▪ Light grey t-shirt → ▪ Floral print (similar) → http://mdst.mn/2u4Hf5F ▪ Dark grey t-shirt → http://mdst.mn/2suQGqf ▪ Windbreaker → http://fave.co/2t09a6R ▪ Polka dot → http://mdst.mn/2ta9Ge1 ▪ Blue polo → http://fave.co/2tJNY2t SHOES ▪ White Reeboks → http://geni.us/XGktd ▪ Onitsuka Tigers → http://geni.us/68m2 ▪ Loafers → http://mdst.mn/2sM3KYZ ▪ Sandals → http://geni.us/pCPh8t6 ▪ Boat shoes → http://geni.us/77yrHw WATCHES/SHADES ▪ Diver → http://geni.us/UOC4qEn ▪ Field → http://geni.us/hpwi ▪ Camo strap → http://geni.us/cOOD ▪ Black digital → http://geni.us/js11c5 ▪ Sunglasses → http://fave.co/2tJQEgs BELTS ▪ Black buckle → http://mdst.mn/2v8qZgM ▪ Gunmetal buckle → http://mdst.mn/2v8o9bI ▪ Dark grey strap → http://mdst.mn/2u9Xcam — MY GEAR ▪ Canon T6i → http://geni.us/4kSX ▪ Laptop → http://fave.co/2hgKaDF ▪ Laptop stand → http://fave.co/2vQwBj3 ▪ Lens #1 (50mm) → http://geni.us/OiE9 ▪ Lens #2 (10-18mm) → http://geni.us/qgGQckE ▪ Lens #3 (24mm) → http://geni.us/x61A ▪ Lav mic → http://geni.us/ZBlvGh ▪ Desk mic → http://geni.us/wCdS7t2 — YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — STYLE GUIDES ▪ Free E-Books → http://mdst.mn/guide-pack ▪ Premium Guide → http://mdst.mn/tmmsg — FOLLOW ME ▪ Podcast → http://fave.co/2vej94M ▪ Instagram → https://www.instagram.com/modestmanstyle/ ▪ Twitter → https://twitter.com/modestmanstyle ▪ Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/modestmanblog/ ▪ Private Group → https://www.facebook.com/groups/modestmen — Contains affiliate links // Stay stylish!

Great Video! Keep on sharing

Question. I noticed with your short sleeve button ups the sleeves fit nicely on the arms. Everytime I buy them they box out on the sides giving a huge wide look. I'm overweight so have to usual buy XXL sizes, but I have short arms, but a long torso. Any shirts or companies that have short sleeve button ups which don't flare out on the sides or tips?

Hi Broc,have you tried Gap wearlight jeans? It would be great if those jeans work well in hot summer.

Beer Lao hangovers are legendary
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Yeah man, Loas/Vietnam/Cambodia are beautiful. Amazing people, food and nature.
Brown Thought (8 months ago)
The Modest Man btw so underrated and beautiful there. The government was kind of a pain in the ass to work with but the locals were really cool.
Brown Thought (8 months ago)
The Modest Man I spent 4 years working that area of Asia. Tiger beer and beer Lao hangovers were crippling
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
You know about Beer Lao?!

All look awesome except the tank top outfit 😁
MD GH (1 year ago)
I like your style Modest and clean
MrJeronimo94 (1 year ago)
I have the exact same Linen pants from HM in olive an navy. Same I bought the to try the look, and have to say they are great! Super comfortable, and they have quite nice laid back but minimalist and elegant look to them! Especially when woren with a dressier white shirt and a pair of loafers.
Erin McGoff (1 year ago)
niiiiiice Beerlao Shirt ;)
wordskill333 (1 year ago)
These are excellent combinations. I like the idea that they are interchangeable. If only I can hit up to 100 more likes. Great video Modest Man!
Bob Kuusela (1 year ago)
Please make a video with your fitness routine: what you eat and your abs and arms routine. You look great!
Andrew Clark (1 year ago)
I really enjoyed this new video. Also I just listened to the newest episode of buttoned up and you mentioned one of my previous comments about bring the urban gentry onto the podcast. Thank you for that! Lastly, I'm looking forward to seeing who you have on. You Rock Brock!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Andrew Clark we emailed him today so fingers crossed 🤞🏻

clever narration. fresh looks that can't go wrong. great vid!
icedcarlo (1 year ago)
That color palette is also my closet's color palette. 👌🏼 Very nice video. Since I have a thin body type, I can see me wearing the outfits you wore on this video. Again, great video. #iamnotafashionista ✌🏼
Justin Jeffers (1 year ago)
great looks Brock, particularly like the loafered look with the Jay Butlers, for obvious reasons. Converting old collared shirts to banded collars is OG menswear secret, haha. Keep up the good fight.
Bat Vigilante (1 year ago)
hi there brock! are banana republic chino pants true to size at the waist? planning to get their slimmest cut the fulton but not sure if I'll go true to size or not. btw awesome color combinations. love it!
Bat Vigilante (1 year ago)
The Modest Man ok thanks brock! :)
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Bat Vigilante I've found that they run slightly large. My actual waist is around 29, but a 28 from BR fits.
nikhilsrl (1 year ago)
Like how you use great affordable watches as opposed to cheap fashion watches. Want to check out the warby parkers and the onitsukas.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+nikhilsrl if you appreciate value you will love Warby Parker. Just got my second pair of prescription sunglasses from them.
Yakkun (1 year ago)
I hear Vampire Weekend in the background music.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Yakkun definitely has that vibe, although it's not VW (I use a music library called Epidemic Sounds).
linkinparkroxx (1 year ago)
Brock I really enjoy your content! Definitly gonna grab me a pair of linen pants!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)

What happened to this week's stream?
Jake J (1 year ago)
No worries, I look forward to the next one!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Jake J my b, had a really busy couple of weeks. Will be back on Sunday!
Iván Contreras (1 year ago)
I don't care what anyone says. Birkenstocks are in, they're having a moment, and completely add a great touch to summer looks.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Ivan Contreras 👊🏼
Gentleman's Gazette (1 year ago)
Interesting format. Does it take less time to produce or more than a regular video?
Gentleman's Gazette (1 year ago)
stay cool
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Gentleman's Gazette yeah kind of an experiment. It's been well received but hasn't gotten as many views as other recent vids, so who knows...
Gentleman's Gazette (1 year ago)
The Modest Man that's what I thought
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Gentleman's Gazette way more...but I think an actual editor could do it quickly.
TriniRCmodels (1 year ago)
@ 5:08 that look is awesome
Micolash (1 year ago)
All of your videos work for me even though I am not at all short, just wanted to say thank you for your help.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Micolash thank you!
Matt Sanchez (1 year ago)
Brock, Do you see earth tones as a year-round choice for men? I always thought of them as fall-specific. Thanks.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Matt Sanchez year round for me. In summer I just increase the lighter shades - light grey, light blue, khaki, white.
OTH50 (1 year ago)
I like all of the looks but i do not like going sockless and for me the shorts are a bit too short. I really do like the colors and that they are interchangeable! How can you put an older man's twist on these looks? Great Vid!!
OTH50 (1 year ago)
I had no shows before but they always slipped off, how can you prevent them from doing that?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+OTH50 gotta get yourself some no show socks!
Art of speed (1 year ago)
great video I'm short I'm 4"9 and your videos help me a lot dressing up is a real challenge some times .
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Glad to hear the videos are helpful!
Vince MC (1 year ago)
what width Anson belt are you wearing?
Vince MC (1 year ago)
The Modest Man thanks for the quick reply!!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Vince MC 1.25" (it's a better width for us Modest men)
pebre79 (1 year ago)
I appreciate the color palette explanation. Another great video, Brock!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Anthony Catalano (1 year ago)
All of the Anson belts featured seem to protrude and be very visible under your shirt. Do they seem to have a somewhat bulky aesthetic to you?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Anthony Catalano they are a bit bulky, which is okay (for me) on casual outfits. For formalwear I usually go beltless.
Jarren Jose (1 year ago)
Really great video! Different from everybody else's and edited and put together well!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Thanks! Starting to get the hang of Final Cut Pro a little. So much more to learn, though...
Lodbrok (1 year ago)
Why do guys wear sandals on the street? I honestly don't think it looks good, just my opinion.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I think they can look great, although they're very casual. I usually reserve mine for the pool, beach or other very casual settings. They're also nice when it's 105 degrees outside.
diarmuid deegan (1 year ago)
hi, great looks, can i ask how u changed long sleeve to short shirts, did u leave them into tailor for alterations????
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I'll put together a tutorial on it soon. You can take it to a tailor or do it yourself.
Jose Avilez (1 year ago)
You should do one on business casual summer outfit ideas. I live in Phoenix and it gets super hot (118 degrees, no joke). Don't want to wear long sleeves and a tie to work right now.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Dude I can't even imagine. I'm in Tucson and I don't even want to wear long pants right now, never mind a suit and tie!
Ethan Betancourt (1 year ago)
could you make a video on how to cut the shirts and pants correctly?
Ethan Betancourt (1 year ago)
Thank you!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Yes, will work on that!
Julian B (1 year ago)
Very cool! I liked the color palette for no-hassle easy matching. A vid for guys who aren't afraid to wear brighter colors would be ideal for consideration Brock...showing which colors work together.
Julian B (1 year ago)
heheh, I didn't consider skin tone when I typed it, but I now realize that brighter colors usually do go best on tanner, darker skin tones.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Good idea. I'd probably have to use other people as examples since I don't have many bright colors in my wardrobe. But someguys (think Aziz Ansari) look great in bright colors.
Pyridius (1 year ago)
Nice inspiration that's to the point and informative!
Caleb Holcomb (1 year ago)
Shorts are too short lol
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
It takes some getting used to, but once you do it for a while, longer shorts feel very cumbersome. The added benefit of shorter shorts is that they fit better around the leg. When shorts go to my knee, they're always way too wide. Makes me look like a little kid. Funny how things change, though. Long, baggy shorts weren't popular until somewhat recently. If you look at old pictures from the 60s, 70s 80s (or even older) you see men wearing very short shorts (think Sean Connery in James Bond). It wasn't at all girly or feminine - quite the opposite. So I don't think wearing shorts that go 2-4" above the knee should make you feel like a girl, but this stuff is very subjective.
Caleb Holcomb (1 year ago)
Eeriewolf anything shorter and I feel like a girl
Eeriewolf (1 year ago)
Just above the knee sounds too long to me.
Caleb Holcomb (1 year ago)
The Modest Man just above the knee. Almost touching my knee cap
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Caleb Holcomb what's your preferred length?
Curtiss Wu (1 year ago)
Keep this up Brock and you will own a boat one day! Just don't forget to invite me! =)
Curtiss Wu (1 year ago)
The Modest Man Deal!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Curtiss Wu I'll need a skipper... 🛥
Pico (1 year ago)
Did you edit this ? It was Excellent
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I'm using Final Cut Pro right now, and Logic or Audition for audio.
Pico (1 year ago)
The Modest Man as an editor myself , I appreciate these details. Excellent work. What software do you use ?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Thanks! Yeah, this one was all me. I don't want to say how long it took...
Vee (1 year ago)
Ay! This channel has really turned up my style upwards alongside with Alpha M and Teachingmensfashion. Seriously mate, thanks. Also thanks to some people in the comments of all the videos for the tips! ^^
dklyde (1 year ago)
#2 was best
Gusher Felter (1 year ago)
I think I need to buy the whole collection of Anson belts, the level of versatility is of the charts, of the roof, of the meter, out of this world!! Loved this lookbook!!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Yeah man, just a couple of straps and buckles go a long way since you can swap them out.
The Kavalier (1 year ago)
That military green canvas belt with matching nato strap 🔥🔥
Jose Gonzalez (1 year ago)
I didn't know those were Birkenstocks, not that I hate it, but it gives off a Dad vibe. Mid 40s. Another solid video.
Pablo V (5 months ago)
The Modest Man my dad wears like that lol. Great video.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Jose Gonzalez true, it's very "dad chic" haha. I love them, so comfortable and durable.
chris xanjes (1 year ago)
I love the look of above the knee shorts but I feel really self-conscious in them because I have genu valgum or knock knees. I have a pair I wore exactly one time in Miami :(
Caleb Holcomb (1 year ago)
chris xanjes I have knock knees and I don't care. Nobody notices TBH.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+chris xanjes hmm i think you could still wear them. Give it another shot!
Gentleman Within (1 year ago)
Great production and fantastic outfits. Hard to pick a favorite here, they're all solid!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Gentleman Within took a page out of your playbook for this one!
Ayush Kumar (1 year ago)
try light grey shirt and brown shorts with some loafers
Edgar Ramos (1 year ago)
Great video, you encourage short guys like me. I am getting a lot of inspiration from your channel!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Awesome, that's what I like to hear!
coolermaster (1 year ago)
Liked before watching
Eric Rice (1 year ago)
Both you and Jose have mentioned turning old button ups into band collar shirts. A quick tutorial on this would be nice!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Good idea, will do!
Christopher Nicoloff (1 year ago)
Wait, what's funny about Birkenstocks? Did I miss something?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Christopher Nicoloff will do!
Christopher Nicoloff (1 year ago)
The Modest Man Surprising, they are very popular here in Korea, with Koreans and Westerners alike. Brock, could you do a video on summer office/more formal outifts next? Thanks! Love the channel :)
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I love them, but they're kind of polarizing. Some (many) guys hate them and wouldn't wear them.
