Hawaiian Shirts

They're the stereotypical men's, particularly Dads, holiday shirt. Made popular in the 90's thanks to Leo DiCaprio in Romeo & Juliet, they were made effortlessly cool. With the 90's comeback, the hawaiian shirt was sure to make a come back sooner or later.

Originating in Hawaii, the shirt is mostly short sleeved, has a collar and is floral with bright colours. They also have a side pocket and and a low v-neck. First made for comfortable work wear, the shirt became mainstream and loved by many including the surfer.

Originally known for its polynesian floral prints, hawaiian shirts have had an overall by mixing up their prints and structure. The Cuban shape Hawaiian print is a firm favourite in the office, and a shirt I'll definitely be embracing this summer.

Styling a Hawaiian Shirt

As the shirt is bright and colourful, it's best to leave the rest of the outfit basic and neutral. Team with either chino shorts or chino trousers to opt for a smart casual, or even skater look. Finish off with low top trainers, sunglasses and beanie.
