Prints and patterns help to create visual interests in your outfits. Here’s an A-Z guide on how to wear a printed shirt in eight different ways.

 

LIKE A SILK SCARF

Scarf prints are a large contributor to the fashion scene this season and are definitely worth investing in. Bonus points if your shirt is actually matching the print of the bomber jacket.

COLLARLESS CALLING

This shirt sports more than just one trend — it’s oversized, collarless and features cartoon characters. Explore the mandarin collar with the seasons boldest piece. Keep the rest of the look minimal.

THE WILD SIDE

Get the 80’s vibe going by opting for an animal print shirt. Pile on the prints and wear them all together — the more, the merrier.

WEEKEND DUTIES

If going short-sleeved is new to you, start small by opting for a basic shirt. To achieve the perfect weekend look, wear it casually tucked in over a tee and denims. Add a hint of print by finishing the look with a neckerchief.

FUNCTIONAL TURN

Cargo pants, camouflage and fanny packs — that’s the new way to wear your half sleeved shirt. Its time to get functional and fashionable all at once.

DENIM OVERLOAD

The menswear trend that only pros can pull off. Combining the double denim look with a printed shirt is a smart move to make. Keep it simple with rolled-up hems and classic shoes.

WITH A KNIT

Pulling off a printed shirt over a roll neck sweater is a tricky business. Take the trend to the next level by teaming it with a pair of classic trousers and printed loafers. Keep the shirt tucked in for a more formal finish.

THE NEW OVERLAYER

Shackets have become a thing and is exactly what your wardrobe is missing right now. Throw it over a printed shirt and loose pants. As usual, a good pair of loafers will work a treat here.
