INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
STYLISH GUYS IN REVERE COLLAR SHIRTS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 27 May 2018
In case you weren’t aware, alongside a slick pair of oversized shorts, a cross-body bag and a fresh graphic-print tee or two, it’s a good idea to stock up on revere collar shirts this season. From Hawaiian-print versions to iterations covered in stripes, the 80s classic is back in a big way for SS18. So, if you’re in need of some sartorial inspiration, see how these street stylers are rocking theirs…
Now, just because you’re game to wear a bold print doesn’t mean that you have to go overboard on colour, too. Take this fella, for example – his statement revere collar shirt serves as the focal point of his ’fit because he’s chosen to keep the rest of his getup chilled. He goes for black high-waisted trews on his bottom half and follows suit with a corresponding flight bag and round retro shades. So suave.
No matter the time of year, Scandi-style minimalism is the way to go. This fella has mastered the look with his one-colour ensemble. Unlike most, he opts for a long-sleeved revere shirt that he teams with a refined pair of cream slacks. Notice how he matches his tortoiseshell glasses to his brown belt to flavour up his aesthetic (someone’s skilled when it comes to selecting the right accoutrements.)
As is to be expected for spring/summer, Breton stripes are back in a big way. However, if you’re not too keen on the traditional pattern, why not try out vertical stripes instead? This chap has gone for a classic revere collar shirt and stuck to stripes on his bottom half, too. Pared-back is the way forward if you’re down to don a shirt like this – just copy this guy and go for black or dark navy trousers.
Alongside stripes, Hawaiian prints are set to cause a lot of hype this season. An easy way to inject a standout element to any ensemble, you’ve got to style a Hawaiian revere collar shirt with finesse to avoid overcomplicating your look. Follow in this fella’s footsteps and go for minimal trews down low, but feel free to go a bit off-piste with your accessory choices.
For a lesson in wearing subdued shades, this guy’s got you covered. Ignoring this season’s pattern trends, he’s opted for a cream revere collar shirt with an obscure face print. He pairs his eccentric shirt with laid-back khaki trousers to counterbalance the effect of his top half. Accessories-wise, a casual pair of round shades, a handy flight bag and a flex-ready Gucci belt finish off his outfit.
