Frolic In Florals
If you immediately thought of a middle-aged man on a holiday, or girls twirling away in frocks, we’re more than glad to play mythbusters! When worn meticulously, florals can be mastered with ease. The fact that you, as a man, can pull off floral prints makes you undeniably more appealing. Have a doubt? Wear them for your next date, and thank us later! Though versatile enough to be worn year-round, count on the spring/summer season to bring you up to speed with this ageless print.
With florals crossing the boundaries of bright colours, there’s really no reason you should give them a miss! Whatever your personality, floral motifs pack a delightful punch for all.
Add a dash of floral to your tie to highlight your personality without compromising your attire. Note that the colour of your tie must complement the colour of your shirt.
While a floral shirt is all you need to glide gracefully from casual to suave, one minor negligence can throw your outfit from classy to catastrophic. Remember to opt for a loose fitting silhouette while keeping embellishments to a minimum. If bright and loud is your forte, tone down the blinding boldness of your shirt by showcasing a basic tee underneath for a balanced ensemble.
Style Tip: Since florals are to be the highlight of your ensemble, club with a pair of basic denims or slim fit trousers.
Easier to pull off compared to shirts, floral trousers too can take a nasty turn if not donned rightly. The best way to flaunt your floral trousers is to top them with a basic T-shirt that steals little away. If you think floral trousers go a little beyond just dipping your toes, try floral shorts. Keeping with the summer vibe, shorts are an ideal alternative to trousers.
Style Tip: To avoid giving off Hawaiian tourister feels, make sure that your shorts are no longer than knee-length. Also, pair them with pastel polo t-shirts.

Pushing your style from the edge of casual into dapper, these vintage prints add a defiant tone to your personality. Oblivious to the charm of this army style print, you’ve probably given these a miss. Time to right that wrong!

If you’re unsure of wearing these or you’re just a skeptic wondering if it is even for you, camo jackets are your best shot. When garbed as a jacket, camo prints can pass off as classic, as opposed to bold. A camo jacket can augment your simplest outfit without appearing too loud.
Style Tip: Opt for a pair of jeans and a slogan tee underneath for a street-smart attire.
Straying from the conventional idea of pants may seem like a shot in the dark to you. While seemingly daunting, they work unexpectedly well with dark shades.
Style Tip: Soften the boldness of your attire by teaming camo pants with crew neck or polo tees.
Shoes are the part of your attire you can afford to experiment with. While camo printed shoes may not be ideal for black tie events, they will readily complement your casual attires. Whether sporting full fledged prints or offering a gentle peek or two, strap on a pair of camo print sneakers for a subtle yet striking impression.
Style Tip: With a pair of chinos and a classic hoodie, your camo sneakers will blend right in.
