How to Style a Floral Shirt for a Fresh Look

The humble floral shirt has gained a bad reputation as a cringe-worthy piece that all dads seem to don during summer. However, like all fashion trends, floral prints are once again getting their moment in the limelight, and should definitely be one of your style goals for this season. 


If you’re apprehensive about pulling off this bold print, read our style guide for a fresh take on how to rock a floral shirt for any occasion.


The Off-Duty Look


The right floral tee is the perfect way to inject some summer vibes into your off-duty look. Paired with some skinny fit joggers for a casual aesthetic, you can easily balance out the eye-catching nature of the print with some neutral coloured joggers that will also give the outfit an urban edge.


To keep things super-casual, you can even opt for a floral vest like our Franklin Gradient Print Vest.


Going Out


Sitting somewhere between the casual off-duty look and the more formal style of office wear, hitting the town for a night out is the perfect occasion to experiment with a floral shirt to complete your look.


Whether you choose to flex in a fresh floral print tee or prefer a more dressed up vibe and opt for a button-up shirt, the right garment will have you turning heads wherever the night takes you. The key to wearing a floral shirt on a night out is to think about where you will be going and dress it up or down accordingly. 


 If you’re already planning for party season, nothing embodies the Ibiza vibe like Plaza Floral Print Shirt with its bright colours and breathable fabrication.





The cardinal rule of styling a floral shirt for the office is to avoid pairing it with a formal suit or tie if you want to keep it looking youthful. While Gucci has nailed floral tailoring, it’s best left to the likes of Harry Styles to tackle the statement look of a floral suit.


To keep things fresh, mix up a floral print tee with some super skinny jeans, ideally in a contrasting colour. With light wash denim returning to the fold as a fashionable choice, it makes for the ideal pairing with a dark toned tee like the Colonel Floral T-Shirt in black.


Button down floral shirts can easily be dressed up or down, making them a versatile addition to your wardrobe. Throw them over a plain white tee with some black skinny jeans and a boot for some serious casual-cool vibes, or layer under a track jacket to create a more sporty look.
