1. One print per look

Don’t go for Print Overkill- that’s a thumb rule! Just take one component of your attire featuring a vibrant print, and keep it low-key with the rest. Black trousers go best with a modish shirt. Plus, don’t wear any jazzy accessories. Gaudy gold chains or studded shades along with a printed shirt are a big No-No!

2. Keep it casual with Shorts

Bold prints are by themselves a smart, casual affair. Shorts complete the chilled-out look of your whole demeanour. Pick a subtle colour from your shirt print and get a pair of shorts of the same. Team up the shirt and shorts with a swanky pair of wayfarers, your favourite Loafers, and you are good to go!

3. Don a formal floral

Hawaiian gardenia bloom shirt can do much more beyond a beach vacation in Miami! Try pairing it with your sophisticated, meant-for-a-formal-party suit. Whether it’s your best friend’s wedding or a semi-formal business meeting, you are so going to nail the look!

4. Layer for distinction

Well, this one’s the king of casual, easy-going ensemble. Wear a single coloured vest and shorts underneath your garish print to give the whole look a pleasant expression. Alternatively, you can pull off a double shirt fashion by showcasing the cuffs and collar of your bold printed shirt beneath that clean-lined navy cotton knit. This whole semblance will break the boastful impact of a fully printed torso.
