Cuban collared shirts are perfect for bringing some colour to any casual summer look. The increase in popularity for vintage and thrift shop fashion over the last few years has turned colourful shirts into a staple of streetwear clothing. Thankfully, when it comes to revere collars, you are able to team them with almost anything. They do require a slightly more Scandinavian or heritage styling, but it definitely adds to the overall image of the shirt.
For a great casual look try teaming a casual Cuban shirt with some light tan or cream coloured chinos. Accessorise with some sunglasses and a watch to add the finishing touches. You could even wear some leather loafers if you wanted to smarten it up.
