HOW WE DO: HAWAIIAN SHIRTS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 22 May 2018
At this time of year, it’s common practice to roll out your printed threads. There’s a lot of hype around Breton stripes and floral prints this season, but if you’re feeling something a little different, why not throw a Hawaiian-print shirt into the mix? For inspiration on how to wear one, take a look at how the guys at ASOS HQ are styling theirs.
For ultimate spring/summer steez, he’s chosen to wear two prints together by opting for a monochrome striped tee to go underneath his palm tree-covered shirt. On his bottom half, he wisely sticks to the same colours – a pair of dark navy chinos and white Converse trainers complement his shirt nicely.
Alternatively, if standout prints are more your vibe, channel the style of our CRM Artworker, Tom. He’s gone for a pastel-pink skinny-fit number, which is best worn on its own – making it perfect for hotter days.
Down low, he switches up his colour palette and goes for a pair of roll-cuffed khaki chinos – the contrast works to bring out the patterning on his shirt even more so. On foot, he dons staple black Converse creps to not detract attention away from his top half.
Now, a sure-fire way to make sure that whatever print you’re wearing stands out is to go for a predominantly black ensemble. Our Artworker James starts off his getup with a white T-shirt before layering up with a black Hawaiian shirt – notice how the hue of his tee corresponds to the lily patterning.
When it comes to the rest of his look, he keeps it as uniform as possible: black jeans and black Air Max 90s. For a lesson in how to inject your everyday style with some added flavour, look no further.
