As temps continue to rise and we endure yet another uncomfortable heat wave, let’s shift our focus on tropical prints that remind us of pleasant sunny days at the beach. It’s a no-brainer that printed shirts for men are one of the season’s biggest must haves, and tropical print shirts being a sub-group of printed shirts probably makes it the most fun article of clothing to wear right now. As always, when picking out new pieces for your wardrobe, the fit should be the first consideration. Keep in mind that you’ll need a tad bit more room to breathe, so opt for a slim fit that isn’t super form-fitting.
Short sleeve button-ups are a great option for rocking a tropical print, especially if you’d like to dress up your look a little. I’m wearing the All Saints Manuka short sleeve shirt in denim with a tonal Hawaiian print and I’ve paired it with some rolled up navy cotton chinos for a care-free summer look. I’ve also added an accessory you probably haven’t seen before. At first glance, it might look like I’m wearing a tie bar on my shirt without a tie. Nope. I want to introduce you to the next advancement in men’s accessories, the ‘shirt clip’. These shirt clips from Dan Tang come in a few different designs set in sterling silver, with the brand looking to add high end diamond shirt clips in the near future- SHOP
When it comes to tropical print shirts, you can stay cool with more subdued prints or go for a more fashion-forward look with bolder colors and patterns. It’s all about pairing like colors together when styling your looks. The trick is not to be too matchy-matchy, but rather, coordinated for a sophisticated look. How are you going to wear a tropical print this summer?
