Featuring two ways to rock these shirts, this post will inspire you to dive into that “pattern life”.

Even if you’re trapped in this city this summer, you can fake it til you make it out with a floral pattern shirt. These aren’t the Aloha-vibes of those old school radio DJs, these patterned shirts are:

  • tailored in the body
  • complementary colors that don’t yell, I found this shirt in the lost and found
  • look best when worn with distressed denim or under a navy cotton suit

Quick Style Tips

  1. This is the time to wear it untucked. These shirts are often shorter in length and have a square bottom. Making them the ideal piece to work casually w/o looking unkempt
  2. Get some extra style points by pairing this shirt with a straw hat. However; don’t go full tropical vacation vibes, opt for a shorter brim and darker straw to make this look more city fresh
  3. Open one more button that you usually would and let your chest breathe. 
  4. Save the flip-flops for the beach and add a chunky Oxford shoe in suede

If you’re planning to rock an aggressive short sleeve shirt & suit to the office, you’re already winning the style game. The keys to making this look work are:

  1. Know the office dress code. There’s no point in having a swagger on 1000%,especially if you’ll be sent home for “unprofessional” office attire
  2. Maybe see this move for a Friday when the boss is on vacation or unless you are the boss (+3 for life points)
  3. Stick to colors that aren’t too bold, especially if the pattern is already eye-catching (like this ikat pattern shirt)
  4. If you’re having trouble figuring out this look — reference Jeff Goldblum and Miguel (trust me)
  5. For the love of god, be sure to wear a strong shoe (loafer/Oxford) and leave the sneakers for the weekend. You’re making enough style moves as is
