How to Dress for Summer

Warmer days, longer nights: summer’s our favorite season and we love to dress the part. But sweltering afternoons and chilly evenings aren’t the easiest to dress for — so we’re making it easy by highlighting our favorite handpicked summer styles for men and women. And we tapped Dockers® Head Stylist Jackie Groffman to give you some summer outfit ideas.

Playa Short

The Playa Shorts are breathable, quick-drying and can get wet. What else could you want?

“This is the ultimate beach to bar style, best paired with our Camp Collar Shirt.” - Dockers® Head Stylist, Jackie Groffman

We return to this men’s summer outfit over and over: start with our Playa Shorts and top it off with a solid tee. Flip flops are great if you’re poolside and pared-back sneakers are perfect for everywhere else.

Original Short

Short but classic. The lightweight and easy OG Shorts for men pay tribute to our Original Khaki with trending pleats and a relaxed fit. Jackie’s short and sweet styling tip?

“Tuck in an Original Tee to show off the pleats.” - Dockers® Head Stylist, Jackie Groffman

Ultimate Short

Jackie calls the Ultimate Short “one of our most beloved and wearable styles” — and for a good reason. We make them in a ton of colors and prints you can wear everyday. Plus, we know you love the convenient multi-pocket design.

Jackie recommends pairing the Ultimate Short with a chambray button-up and a basic tee.

Don’t Forget a Jacket

Get dressed with a clean conscience. Our high sustainability standards reduce our impact on the planet and better the lives of apparel workers.
