Flowers have always inspired and fascinated fashion designers. In fact many well-known designers have a signature flower. The lily of the valley is associated with Dior and Chanel’s camellia is still used by Lagerfeld as the signature of the house.
Use of floral patterns, especially in women’s wear is quite common. Though Hawaiian printed shirts for men were popular at one point of time, floral prints were not generally used for men’s wear. But this year the flowers are for men. Yes, floral patterns for men have emerged as the latest fashion trend for this spring/ summer as seen on the runways of Paris, London and Milan. Well-known brands like Gucci, Prada and Dries Van Noten showcased their men’s wear collection with floral patterns and prints. Bold floral prints were seen on all kinds of men’s wear, like silk shirts and trousers, cotton and poplin t-shirts worn under blazers, and shorts.
Mix and Match
If you are daring and adventurous then you can pick Gucci’s all flower suit look or you can mix match. Like you can team your bold bright floral pattern shirt with plain cream or black colored trousers or you can wear it with the color of pants that is dominant on your shirt. Floral prints also look great with a pair of jeans.
You can also combine flower patterned pants or shorts with plain shirt or t-shirt and rock this look.
Combining Contrasting Pattern
Not everybody can carry this look. If you are willing to take the risk you can go wearing clashing floral patterns but make sure that they complement each other.
Try wearing a small-floral printed shirt under a jacket or blazer with shirt’s cuffs and collar showing. You can also spruce up this look by donning a floral patterned coat with a plain shirt.
Shirts with floral print collar and cuffs
If you don’t want to wear all floral print shirts or trousers but want to follow this trend, then you can wear shirts with floral patterned collar and cuffs.
Another way to follow this trend is to wear floral patterned accessories like ties, caps, scarves, belts or shoes.
So this spring season, get ready to experiment and add a dash of flowers to your wardrobe and create your own style and share with us.
