Gone are the days where a floral shirt associates with a sunburnt middle-aged man on holiday or as a feminine style choice. Today, the face of men’s fashion has changed and each and every day, you will find a man rocking fresh and floral prints, looking fierce and stylish in doing so. The thing is, you can’t just pick one of these shirts from your closet and wear them – there are some things that you should know first. So, how do you wear a floral shirt? What if you look stupid? What if you look girly? Be bold, brave, and exhibit confidence through your floral shirt. After all, it takes a real man to pose in floral print. Again, we have listed a number of tips that are meant to help you rock on a floral shirt and look fabulous.
Contrast with Plain Clothes
To begin with, never combine two different floral patterns together. Instead, the rest of your clothing should be plain when wearing a floral shirt. Pair with solid colors – neutral is a good option to keep your outfit looking cohesive and slick. This way the focus stays on the floral shirt and doesn’t shift focus from it as the main feature of the outfit.
Choose Your Colorings and Prints
Experimenting with floral shirts is supposed to be fun, so make sure you choose colorings and prints that make you feel comfortable and confident instead of conscious and shy. Match your print to suit your body shape but to perfect your personality too!
Combine the Right Textures
We’ve talked of contrasting floral shirts with plainer clothing, it’s also very important to combine them with the right textures to keep the look fresh and current. Whilst the textures of an outfit aren’t necessary to match perfectly, the fabrics should complement each other – the look and feel of the textures should balance and match.
Color coordinate your shoes
When in doubt, go back to the old, ‘match a color within your printed shirt to another item in your outfit’ trick. When your color palette is in the more universally-flattering range, such as blue tones, match your shoes to one of the colors in your shirt. It’s a subtle nod that shows you know what you’re doing, won’t look like you’re trying too hard.
So, if you still don’t feel confident to take the plunge, don’t worry as there are alternative ways to dabble with the floral print trend in smaller doses.
If you are in fact ready to rock that floral shirt, then kudos! It’s a brave and bold choice but with our advice, you’ll rock it in a sleek and stylish manner.
