Final Touch: Prints Play
If the clothes make the man, there’s no question that accessories make the clothes. Dark florals and skate inspired looks are one of this summer’s most up-and-coming menswear trends, but the art of pairing them is a fine one.
Balance is key: think relaxed, rugged and playful. Hawaiian shirts are one option, but better yet is a twist on the classic button-down with patterned sleeves, cuffs or collar. Then add this season’s is a must-have men’s shoe: the printed slip-on. Smarter than a sandal and easier than a lace-up with its subtle geometric print is the perfect mix of carefree and fashion-aware. Wear it sockless for best effect.
A statement watch with a striped wristband is timeless, yet timely. Its striped accent and chunky face make it both preppy and practical – especially with multiple, interchangeable straps. And just because you can, top off the look with a pair of statement aviators like these reflectors. Whether you’re more of a throwback to the ‘70s Robert Redford (Three Days of Condor) or more of an ‘80s Tom Cruise (Top Gun), they’re the finishing touch to your print-perfection.
