There are some fashion trends that require a certain degree of courage to pull them off. Flowers are often associated with femininity but are paradoxically a sign of how confident a man is with his masculinity when he wears them. Floral shirts are derived from the traditional Hawaiian shirts brought back from Hawaii after the Second World War. When worn correctly a floral shirt can look stunning, however if you wear a floral shirt badly you may look ridiculous or even worse cause a stir at Wimbledon.
As with with everything that can cause controversy there needs to be a set of rules that should be followed so that you don’t look like a dogs dinner. Here are a set of rules inspired by the fashion site, Attire Club, on, ‘How To Wear A Floral Shirt’.
- Wear with a solid colour – either coordinating or contrasting, bright or neutral, but you can’t really go wrong if you choose this style.
- Wear big floral prints with small prints – the other prints don’t have to be floral or the same size.
- Wear with matching or different floral prints but make sure that one has big prints and the other has small prints.
If you are not up to wearing fully blown florals you could buy floral accessories to go with clothes you already feel comfortable wearing.
How ever you approach wearing florals make sure you gain Flower Power rather than Over Power!
