Spring is here and flowers are abloom, not only in nature but in menswear as well. What was once the go-to print for cocktail dresses and your grandma’s old couch is becoming a staple in the modern man’s attire. As many ways as there are to do it, there are ways to OVER do it.
The Pocket Square
A little floral never hurt anyone. A pocket square is an easy way to add a touch of print without going overboard. Whether you poof your square proudly or just have a touch showing, a well placed hanky can show a pop whatever your comfort level is.
You know that little slit on your lapel? Maybe it’s something you’ve overlooked before, but the lapel is a viable option to add a flower. Floral lapel pins like the orange one I have on in this picture allows you to bring in color in different ways.
The Floral Shirt
I remember a couple years back in the movie “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” Russell Brand’s character Aldous Snow lamented the prospects of wearing a Tommy Bahama shirt. “Take my eyes but not the shirt,” he sarcastically quipped. Though I won’t be buying stock in Tommy Bahama I can’t deny the flourish of floral print shirts as of late. I recognize the bold prints aren’t for everyone but the subtle print I’m rocking here might be more your speed. Seriously, how often can you wear a check shirt?
Experiment with new prints and add some floral in your life.
