5 of the best mens floral shirts for men
Can guys wear floral shirts?
No doubt about it, every man should have at least one floral shirt (or maybe two or three mens floral shirts if you love David Smith shirts) in their wardrobe.
Floral print shirts in long sleeve can not only brighten your look, but they can also be worn all year round. Layer a long sleeve floral print shirt under a men’s suit jacket or throw on a bomber jacket for a uniquely stylish on-trend look, worn with a pair of chino style pants or wear with a pair of long shorts (think Bondi Short style).
Ever so popular now are men’s floral short sleeve shirts. Not only do they look sensationally cool and stylish, but they are also essentially cooler than wearing a long sleeve shirt with sleeves rolled up.
How to find the right floral shirt
Colour: Think about colour, keep in mind what will you be wearing on your bottom half.
Where will you be wearing your floral shirt? Office, bbq, weekends, dinner, etc. Hint, keep prints small and toned down for the office, larger for casual.
Style and Fit
Mens floral shirts long sleeve
Cotton or Linen button up shirt. A floral linen shirt is perfect worn unbuttoned over a white tee and sleeves rolled up for the beach or weekend casual out for lunch look. Button up for the office or night out with friends. Keep floral print small for office wear, and save the big bold colors for casual/nightwear.
Mens floral shirts short sleeve
Cotton or Tencel? Both are great natural fibers. Cotton button-up is the classic short sleeve shirt, easy to wear and suited to whatever the occasion may be.
Short sleeve shirts (Burleigh Fit) crafted in Tencel™️ fabric are absorbently cool and comfortable to wear, perfect for the bbq or pack away for that weekend getaway. (Think Hawaiian shirt style,Camp style, Aloha shirt style, Tom Selleck in Magnum PI or even James Bond in Thunderball shirt style in the Bahamas, - with the flat bottom edge short sleeve shirts).
Keep shorts or pants plain. Cotton and Linen shorts work perfectly. Jeans: Perfectly complement both long sleeve and short sleeve floral print shirts. A classic pair of black jeans or dark blue jeans will add a timeless classic look with any floral print, or add a pair of relaxed faded vintage jeans with a bold, loud floral print for a confident "I'm me" look."
Tip: Never wear long socks with a short sleeve shirt and shorts. Your Dad may have gotten away with it in the '70s but it is not a look to go to now. Do think about what you are wearing on your feet. Slip-on shoes, deck or boat shoes, sneakers, or flip-flops.
The most important part of pulling off a floral shirt is recognizing that it’s the statement piece of your outfit, which means everything else you wear shouldn’t take the spotlight away from the shirt. One print per look (Fashion Beans). In other words, keep it simple and you will be ready to have some fun.
