Florals for Spring are not new nor groundbreaking, but as the rules of sartorial dressing shifts to a more relaxed realm of style, the rise of the print has seen it revived for the modern era. It’s often been a misconception that florals and men don’t mix, but with the likes of Dior‘s romanticism tailoring, Gucci gothic and Hermès‘ quintessential Italian aesthetic in its Spring/Summer 2019 collections, all bets are off on the dated way of thinking.
When it comes to wearing floral prints, the style does not come without its challenges however, but done right and its a fast-track to sartorial success. Whether it be on the street or in the office, take our advice on wearing the print of the season.
Spring racing is doing the rounds for another year and if you’re looking to impress on the fields, micro florals are the place to look. Associated with more formal attire, use micro florals as an accent against muted colour tones, whether you’re off to the races, dinner or cocktail event. Opt for a tie or pocket square and if you’re feeling especially adventurous whack on a printed shirt for an easy statement.
Floral prints not only have a place with tailoring, but can be easily added to your daily kit to mix up a tired look. Worn best up top, opt for a bold floral design and keep it refined by adding a chino or tailored jogger. And a word of warning, you will turn heads.
