So far this month we’ve covered ladies fashion, kiddie prints and home decor, now it’s time for the boys to get in on the fun too!
From bold florals, to modern graphic prints, to traditional patterns like paisley and stripes – patterns are popping up everywhere in menswear. While there are a few patterned pants, shorts and jackets out there, it’s mostly patterned shirts in stores.
When it comes to styling patterned pieces for men, I recommend sticking to one pattern and pairing it something solid coloured like denim or black. Or, pull one of the colours out of the pattern and use that as your solid. For example if the shirt features a blue bird, pair it with shorts in that same blue.
Here are just a few of my favourite patterns, all available at Coquitlam Centre Retailers.
