Floral Dress Shirt


A dress shirt is a man’s shirt typically worn with suits, blazers, ties etc. It is a button-up shirt with a collar and wrist cuffs. They are usually long-sleeved. The dress shirt is usually worn underneath a coat or blazer. Among the many types of shirts available in the market today, the floral dress shirt is a distinctive and bold one. It typically consists of a design consisting of flowers (hence, ‘floral’), where many flowers are printed on the fabric of the shirt with a specific pattern. A combination of green leaves, pink, red and yellow blossoms etc. is commonly seen on these garments. These are very stylish-looking shirts and are usually used as formal wear; however, it can also be used as informal wear, if styled\paired properly.

Do you want to dress a little differently and sophisticated but tired of the same old shirts? Go for the classic floral dress shirt then! Is it in style? Of course it is! It always is, undoubtedly. It’s very popular. It’s often criticized on the grounds that it ‘looks too feminine and is not suitable for men’. It is the 21st century, are we really stupid enough to still be following that stupid opinion? The floral shirt has been the top summer trend consistently for so many years that it has become a classic, like the striped shirt has. It just naturally goes with bright seasons (spring, summer) well.

To give you a few great examples, no one did flower-power better than Jimi Hendrix and the American pop legend, Elvis Presley. Rock ‘n’ roll mainly popularized the floral pattern in Hollywood and it continues till today. Funny how the 80’s and 90’s were better times for fashion than today. It became very popular the first time around the late 1950’s and 1980’s and never went out of style simply because of the fact that they look so classic, stylish and smart! And as we know, many vintage styles like this have continued to top the charts till this day and date. The floral dress shirt is such a simple yet sophisticated design and always looks so smart on men.

The floral shirt is available in a wide range of colors like red, yellow, blue, black, pink, purple, orange, navy, grey and every other color in between. This shirt is also known as the Hawaiian shirt because that is where it originally came from. They are available to men of all shapes and sizes- medium, large, small, oversized, extra slim - whatever it is, we got you! So simple yet so elegant.

Floral shirts come in many styles like a completely black shirt with pink\light colored blossoms on it. Or a shirt in more yellow tones, white or grey. Floral shirts are perfect for every man of every age- twenty-five, thirty, fifty, five – all ages.

With so much criticism and fashion critics (most of them being self-proclaimed) going around in America, one anxious question remains- “Yeah okay, but how do I wear a floral dress shirt?”

We got you. There are many ways to wear floral shirts. You can wear your button-up floral dress shirts with jeans or shorts. Blue jeans or trousers, chinos- everything works with these shirts. You could wear beige shorts or full trousers to give that summery vibe. Make a bolder and more professional statement by pairing a blazer with your floral shirt. A dark purple, navy blue or black blazer with black dress pants compliments a shirt that is also in the dark colored ranges (such as lavender). This is for a formal setting. Further, compliment your look with black leather derby shoes for the perfect gentlemen. Another great way to go for a more casual look or for informal occasions, would be to style out a red floral shirt with floral shorts. Or wear the floral shirt as a light jacket over a white polo t-shirt and beige shorts or chinos. Throw on a hat and a pair of sunglasses too, if you are into it.

You can usually wear these shirts anywhere. However, this style is not recommended for corporate employees, working men in the IT industry or for an extremely respected event or business meetings. Floral dress shirts are more on the casual side. And wearing these styles are ideal for casual events like going on a vacation, birthday parties, going out with friends to grab a cold drink during hot summers, etc. It is like the vibe you get from Tom Cruise in Cocktail, in that scene at the bar, serving drinks to hot ladies.

Matching your pants and shirt in terms of color should usually be done. If not matching, then complimenting. Like you can complement a white shirt with beige trousers or a yellow one with brown. You could also instead enter a neutral territory with your mixing and matching. If you want to give off a more ‘touristy’ vibe with your floral shirt, choose a shirt that’s more loose-fitting and keep the colors vibrant and on the brighter side.

These shirts come in many fabrics. But usually come in cotton and flannel. These garments are breathable, easy to wash, require low-maintenance and are durable.
