How to Style a Floral Shirt
Floral shirts have become a staple in the wardrobe of many. They add a pop of colour and personality to any outfit and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Styling floral shirts can be challenging, as they can easily look untidy or loud if not styled correctly. Here are some tips for styling floral shirts that will help you pull off this trend with confidence and ease.
Start with a neutral base
When styling your floral shirt, keep the rest of your outfit simple and understated. This will allow the floral shirt to be the focal point of your outfit and create a smart and sophisticated look.
Choose the right fit
Choose a shirt that fits you well and is comfortable to wear. A slim or tailored fit works best for most, but if you prefer a looser fit, make sure it still flatters your body shape.
On the more chilly days, try layering a floral shirt over a plain white t-shirt or under a denim jacket. For a more formal occasion, a blazer or sport coat can elevate your look while still allowing the floral shirt to shine.
- Tuck it in or leave it out: Depending on the occasion, you can choose to tuck in your shirt for a more formal look or leave it untucked for a more casual one. If you do tuck it in, make sure to wear a belt that matches your shoes.
- Dress it up from day to night
One of the great things about floral shirts is that they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For a casual daytime look, style a floral shirt with shorts or a pair of jeans and trainers. For a night out, dress up your floral shirt with chinos and a pair of loafers or shoes. With the right accessories and layering, a floral shirt can be appropriate for almost any occasion.
