You might think of floral printed shirts as something you might wear if you are part of the “flower power brigade” but that’s not the case. They can be worn for any occasion, and since folks wear it rarely, people will steal a glance at you for sure.
And because they are so vibrant, they pair well with accessories too, especially with sunglasses. You can match them keeping the hue of your sunglasses in mind, or pick a classic shape to complement your look. On that note, here are our top tips on how to wear floral print shirts and pair them with the right sunglasses.
1. Two-tone floral
If you want to stick with the basic floral printed shirt available online, then a two-tone floral shirt will go well with a khaki-coloured trouser or even cotton shorts. Don’t forget to pair them with a pair of pilot shape sunglasses like Cockpit or Duke. We already feel the Miami vibes.
2. The mystical side
Love floral printed shirts with mystical creatures in them? Then opt for something similar this summer. It’s white, that means it will keep you cool, and it comes in a print, that means you will look cool. That should be paired with grey denims, and Banner or Quad.

We reckon you even it out with a large, dark, framed sunglasses like Knot or Cockpit. Mirrored finishes would also do.
5. From the Tropics
Tropical prints and the summer pair really well. For people uncertain about tropical prints, these design mostly comprise prints or illustrations of leaves and not flowers. Tropical prints can be a good option for men would feel florals are a bit too feminine for their taste. These might vibe well with square shape sunglasses like Ace or Stout. If you are looking to experiment with colour then you can pair them with something bright like Tony as well.
