An everyday staple, man never has enough shirts in his wardrobe, in a range of cuts, colours and level of formalness. Avoid boring shirt choices this upcoming Summer and instead, inject your wardrobe with a range of casual patterned shirts, perfect for every occasion.
What to Buy:
When buying patterned shirts, keep in mind what other pieces you want to pair them with. As a general rule, don't pair patterned shirts with other similarly patterned pieces. Keep it simple and remember our golden rule: if people are going to feel dizzy by staring at your for too long, tone it back. The easiest way to experiment with louder designs is to team them back with simple basics, such as jeans/chinos or adding light knitwear or a jacket over the top. Stripes and checks are the most common prints, but do not be afraid to try florals and small motifs.
How to Wear:
· A blue/pink shirt with white stripes plus beige chinos and brown loafers or boat shoes is a great casual look for Spring.
· For a more street style look, wear a checked shirt unbuttoned over a grey t-shirt, and pair it with black ripped jeans and a lace-up boot.
· For the more adventurous, wear your floral print shirt with chinos in a colour that dominates the floral pattern.
· A plaid shirt with a solid colour tie and a V-neck sweater, finished off with a dark washed jean or chino is a foolproof combination year-round.
