Did you know that florals are the "in" thing for men this summer?
Are you a bit unsure of exactly "how" to wear florals this summer?
Don't worry - we got you covered - with florals that is! The floral pattern is one of the most notoriously tricky fashions for a man to pull off with confidence. But fear not, our intrepid flower-loving tough guys, because we’re here to explain how to don petals in a completely cool and masculine way for the season ahead.
The Hawaiian Shirt
Just because you put on a Hawaiian shirt doesn’t mean you're always en route to a luau, you know.
Undoubtedly, wearing a comfy Hawaiian shirt is definitely the best thing to wear while sinking cocktails or firing up the barbecue, but adding a quality hibiscus-print shirt to your summer wardrobe is an easy way to sharpen up your look for an upscale night out.
The 1950s-style collar, similar to those found on a Cuban shirt, means it looks smart done up or worn open with a white crew neck or vest underneath. Layer yours underneath a linen blazer if you want to take things up a notch or two and complete the look with a pair of cropped trousers and tan loafers.
If you want to be really trendy and show off your fashion-style, combine two completely different prints help inject your warm-weather look with a much-needed dose of personality.
Unsure? Try it out by putting together a subtle floral shirt against trousers with a heavier pattern. The beauty of this look is the fact that there’s no real way of getting it wrong – the whole point is to contrast and set two designs at war against one another.
If you’re just not convinced that going full bloom is for you, then try using a few well-placed accessories instead. The devil is in the detail after all, so introducing some eye-catching flourishes to your tailoring, such as a floral tie, is a nice way to nod to the trend without being overly showy.
