STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Flower Power

When thinking of floral patterns, one immediately assumes spring fashion. But this Fashionisto is starting a groundbreaking trend—florals in the summer. Florals are their own accessory. They’re usually bold in pattern and color, making it a statement piece. The beauty of florals is not only in the flowers, but also in the simplicity of an outfit. While most associate florals with femininity, they’re also great for all of the Fashionistos out there! How do you put a masculine twist on flowers? Well, let’s take a look at our Fashionisto.

If you want to look like a million bucks while exerting the least amount of energy, go for the floral top. Our Fashionisto’s outfit is casual, but his floral shirt suggests otherwise. His shirt has three colors, not including the sky blue base—red, yellow and green. The base color of the floral top is not only chic, but it’s subtle enough to allow the other colors to stand out.

Can you smell the roses yet? Well, let’s not forget about other crucial elements of our Fashionisto’s top. The masculinity is in the colors and the collar. He buttoned his shirt to his neck. The latter detail is simple, adds some sophistication and draws attention to the collar. To keep the focus on his floral shirt, this Fashionisto paired it with denim jeans that he cuffed at the bottom with dark brown loafers. He finished his look off with a watch. It’s that simple.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Florals are just a really easy way to make a statement. Plus, the shirt is pretty thin, so that helps with heat.”
