The single print affect

The occasion is key

Ok, wild bright flowery floral may be acceptable beach side, but think about afterwards. How are you going to dress your shirt in the evening or away from the water. A micro-floral print pattern is more chic and tailored. It can be paired up or down but always remember its occasion of use.

Floral shirt + jeans

When it comes to smart casual fashion, men’s jeans go with anything. The versatility of jeans also means they are a perfect choice to wear with men’s floral shirts. However, on an air of caution this doesn’t mean that any old shirt is a “throw on and go.” The shirt design, colour and pattern are crucial to getting that smart fashion look. Black jeans are a great choice when pairing on a neutral basis. Light washed denim is suited to more vibrant floral shirt finishes.

Floral shirts and shorts look

OK guys you want to your floral fashion finish to look good. This means some sacrifices are to be made here. If you are looking for that structured finish then flip flops and baggy underneath logo tees are a big no no. Your shorts should always look fitted.

Neutrals are a safe option when paired with a crisp micro-pattern cotton floral shirt. ¾ closed sandals or a pair of plain coloured trainers can complete this look perfectly. Avert any colour clashes and make you look balanced. Remember, you are trying to create a stylish finish not the hobo beach look.

The floral shirt and trouser match

This is really the top end of the scale when it comes to dressing your floral shirt. It’s the smart casual summer look at its best if dressed correctly.

First up your trousers must be tailored and need to be neutral and free of any pattern. Opt for tonal colours like greens, creams, blacks. You can also create a sharp contrast between top and bottom like black and red. You want your finish to be stylish so complete the look with a belt and matching brogues. For the cooler effect a minimalist trainers are another great choice.
