3 min read

From summer prints to pastel hues, suited to every occasion

Whether you’re packing for a holiday or just want to look good on the home front, preparing for summer is a must. Light, breathable clothing is a wardrobe essential, with vibrant prints and pastel shades among the current trends. Marks & Spencer has just what you need with its new men’s summer collection. Here are the highlights:

Linen shirts

The ultimate summer fabric, linen lends itself to both leisure and work. The Marks & Spencer version has a ‘Cool Comfort’ finish, drawing moisture to the outer surface to leave you feeling fresh and cool. These are easy-iron too, ensuring crease-free style.

Get your linen in bold colours, as well as classic shades. Try the Pure Linen Shirt (AED235), which sits close to the torso, or the Linen Striped Grandad Shirt (AED235). The Linen Rich Grandad Shirt with Pocket (AED175) looks great with chinos or shorts.

Pastel suits

A pastel suit works for the office or a special occasion. Pair with a T-shirt and sneakers for a dressed-down look, or a crisp white shirt for something formal.

Try a Tailored Fit Linen Miracle Jacket (AED675) and matching trousers (AED350) for a contemporary look, or for something even closer to the body go for the Skinny Fit option. You’ll find a jacket (AED475) and trousers (AED350) here in a range of hues.

Printed shirts

Jazz up your holiday wardrobe with a Cotton Rich Flower Print Shirt (AED175) or a Pure Cotton Fish Print Shirt (AED110). Or try the Pure Cotton Printed Shirt (AED140), with its playful ice cream cone pattern. Whether you prefer Hawaiian, floral or tropical, Marks & Spencer has you covered this season for prints.

Statement shorts

Try the Cotton Rich Chino Shorts with Stretch (AED120), featuring a cool printed leaf design, or the Cotton Rich Printed Shorts with Stretch (AED120). The Pure Cotton Authentic Cargo Shorts (AED120) are another welcome wardrobe staple, and you can also browse the tropical and camouflage prints.

Swimming trunks

There’s lots of cool fabric technology in the Marks & Spencer swimwear range. The Quick Dry Swim Shorts (AED175) use a material that helps them to dry faster, while the Quick Dry Geometric Print Swim Shorts (AED120) are made from 100 per cent recycled material and offer a striking print. The Quick Dry Chilli Print Swim Shorts (AED120), meanwhile, have UPF50+ protection thanks to Sun Smart technology, and are also made from recycled material.

You’ll have no trouble finding these items on your next shopping trip – the Marks & Spencer Al Futtaim franchise partnership offers 88 stores across the Middle East and Asia.
