A Spring Summer trend that has seen a slow but steady rise to fame in the contemporary gentleman’s wardrobe is florals. While florals have ruled runways with hunky models sashaying down the ramp in floral tees, jumpers, shorts and shirts, it has not always been embraced off the ramp by men. But with more and more men adapting to sartorial change and preferring to stand out, the floral motif is now making a fashion statement more than ever.
Floral patterns for men, surprisingly, come in varied hues and styles. While the delicate flirty print is here to stay, a dark, edgier version has nudged its way in with its masculine appeal. Vibrant tropical floral motifs and landscape-inspired prints are a favourite this season and here to stay.
While shirts and tees with flowers are a perennial favourite, florals are being cultivated by designers to adorn trousers, shorts, socks, shoes, bags, ties and bow ties. So whether you choose to go all out while adopting this print or prefer to take a subtle route while embracing florals, there are a gamut of options that you can incorporate into your wardrobe.
