The 70s are back baby, and bold prints along with them.
This paisley shirt came in last week, and I’ve been wearing it almost every day since.
Here’s three ways to pull it off.
1. The Creative Profesional
Pair a paisley shirt with a sharp business suit for a heavy dose of personality in the workplace. Definitely better for the creative professionals than the investment bankers.
This is one of those high-risk/high-reward moves, probably not the safest play for those still figuring out their personal style.
Earthy, masucline tones make it easier to pull-off than bold or bright colors.
If you’re going to try a shirt with a bold pattern, make sure the pattern is visually interesting and appealing. This one, for example, is not a simple repeated print. Up close, this pattern is a real work of art with amazing detail and a tasteful blend of Fall colors.
As with any garment that makes a statement, fit and confidence are essential to pulling it off.
