LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Featuring Floral

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Nothing quite says springtime like a floral print. The flamboyant pattern is most times associated with a more feminine side of fashion. This spring though, floral is trending in a big way and it is more masculine than ever before. Floral prints for men are the “it” fashion trend for guys everywhere this spring and they are actually easier to pull off than you might think.

Alexander McQueen is one fashion house that showcased the floral prints in their spring 2014 runway show. The label displayed all-floral suits and delicate crocheted tops. The McQueen looks were bold and were meant to be statement pieces.

When pulling off this trend your clothing choices don’t have to mirror the runway styles. Our featured Fashionisto shows us how to rock the trend in a more subdued way.  He paired his blue and white floral shirt with cutoff tan shorts, rust colored Converse and a white watch to accessorize with. His outfit is relaxed and casual. The trick to executing this look in a more comfortable way is to find a floral print that is small, rather than one that featured large or graphic print flowers.

If you want to shop around for some fun florals, then ASOS is a great place to start. They have a shirt similar to the one scene on our Fashionisto. They also have bolder prints available if you want to go a little more daring with this trend. If you want to ease in to this trend, Urban Outfitters has a floral hat that would a perfect way to subtlety work this trend in to a look. So shop around and start to warm up to a more flowery way of life.
