LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: A Dress Shirt with Flavor

Let's Hear it for the Boys

I have to immediately prompt you to appreciate the print that has taken this classic collared shirt to brand new heights. If you can’t tell, his shirt is dawning various photos of beagles intertwined with leather and chain dog leashes. This Fashionisto is obviously getting compliments left and right, and for so much more than just a revolutionary pattern.

First of all, I think it’s really important to remember not to take yourself too seriously, even in your clothing choices. With that said, maybe that hilarious cat sweater at Goodwill that fit perfectly wouldn’t be such a bad move to make, especially if you know how to style it correctly. All you need is some key jewelry and simple pieces for the perfect casual yet bold look, with a print to keep you entertained all day.

Start off with your statement piece, whether it’s a dog patterned collared shirt, donut sweater or striped pants, work around it with easier solid and casual pieces. He went with black cut-offs, white socks and simple slip on shoes. What could be a better-inspired shirt than this trumpet print one from Topman?

This look took a turn in a great direction with his gold statement jewelry, including a square chunky watch and his gold chain emphasizing the collar. Try a chain like this one from ASOS paired with any collared shirt for a small step up that goes a long way. These simple additions dress up this ensemble just enough to keep it casual, and join forces with the great beagle print maintaining his personal style.

If you have a shirt like this sitting in your closet, by all means don’t let it collect dust. This Fashionisto shows you how to do so in the most casual yet fashionable way that you never thought was possible.

Hint: Call me crazy, but I think you could totally wear a crazy-patterned shirt like this out for a dressier look. After all, it’s still a dress shirt. Keep the chain or go for a bow tie paired with fitted black pants and brown or black dress shoes like these boots from Zara.
