Hawaiian Shirts And How To Wear Them

It is a fact that Hawaiian printed shirts, also known as Aloha shirts, are one of the most vibrant, colorful and stimulating kind of shirts. That is the reason why they are the top textile export of the Hawaii manufacturing industry. A few years ago, we all would have laughed at the very thought of putting on an exuberant and over the top shirt overflowing with colors and flowers. However, the rapidly growing fashion industry and the ever-changing fashion trends have changed the game for Hawaiian shirts. Flamboyant is the new cool now.

It is true that Hawaiian shirts are full of life; however, they can suck the life out of you if you want to look good in them without knowing how to style them. Therefore, we’re here to guide you through the whole process.

Choosing A Shirt

The first step, choosing a shirt, is the hardest because there is so much going on in these shirts that it is rather easy to miss some important factors. So you must be careful while picking out a shirt for yourself.

Choose a shirt with patterns of interesting objects, such as flowers, trees, birds and animals. Stay away from shirts with immature objects like toilets, spaceships and cartoon characters.

Choose a shirt with colors that complement the colors of the rest of your clothing items. A pink shirt will never complement khaki trousers in the way you want. We recommend you to go for colors like green, red, black and blue because they easily match with your trousers or shorts.

Do not ignore the fabric while picking a shirt. Hawaiian shirts made with silk fabric are the best option. Cotton/wool is another great pick. Do not wear a cheap polyester shirt as it can be hard to get any smell out of them.

Now that you know how to choose a Hawaiian shirt, it is time that you learn how to wear them.

Smart Casual

For a smart casual look, wear your Hawaiian shirt either with drawstring trousers or pleated trousers. It is up to you if you want to tuck it in or not. Leaving it out will obviously give you a more casual look. You can also combine it with a simple black or blue suit. There would be so much going on in your look, so tone that down by going beltless. As far as footwear is concerned, go for sneakers, Oxfords or loafers. They are the best shoes to wear in summer. Lastly, jeans are a good option as well, ripped jeans especially.

Beach Casual

Hawaiian shirts have become a beachwear uniform for most of the men. Its liveliness gives you a chill and stylish look. Keep your ensemble simple for the beach, and pair the shirt with plain white, black or blue shorts. Complete your look with classic sneakers or slip-ons. In this way, your “uniform” will have the chance to shine and standout.
