Trends To Actually Follow: Floral Print


I’ve never been a huge follower of trends. In fact, I consider my style as being more classic as opposed to being trendy. This is because keeping up with trends can be a waste of money.

One season the shirt you’re wearing is cool and you love it, and then next month it’s old news and you regret that you even posted it on the gram.

However, one popular trend that was evident in the photos from Pitti Uomo and New York Fashion Week: Mens (NYFWM), was floral print shirts. Floral print is definitely nothing new but it is having it’s moment in the spotlight once again, and it actually looks good on and off the runway!



The first time I wore this floral print shirt, I paired it with some white jeans and a denim jacket to create a more casual outfit.

This time around, I wanted to dress it up and pair it with this khaki cotton suit and some brown loafers just to show it’s versatility.



As always, the best advice I can give when it comes to pulling off floral print the right way is to keep things simple.

In this case, the shirt is definitely the main attraction and it doesn’t come off as “looking busy” or “trying too hard”.
