Be Bold & Plunge Into Prints

So many men are afraid to plunge into the print pool and to be quite honest, I really don’t understand it. The explosion of prints, whether as simple as stripes and pin dots or bold as florals and camouflage have expanded the style spectrum fromย which men get dressed. This means that your chances of looking stylish just went up because you have even more of a selection to choose from. Right?ย Regardless…

A particular print that is perfect to try during the summer is Hawaiian print. I’m not talking the baggy shirts and dull hibiscus prints of yesteryear, no, I’m talking bold, colorful prints like the one I’m wearing here. I think so many men are afraid of bold prints like this because they think it’s too loud or too flashy, and to a certain extent I understand not wanting your shirt to be the star of the show. But a print as large as this is easily subdued by adding shorts/pants that match the base color of the shirt. In coordinating the navy shorts with the navy-based shirt, the print becomes much quieter than if you were to pair it with white denim or even khaki shorts.

So the next time you pick up a new shirt, don’t just reach for that same old blue stripe or the usual navy gingham. Be brave and go a little bolder. ย Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 1 Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 2Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 8Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 4 Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 5 Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 6Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 3 Hawaiian Print Navy Shorts 7
