We strongly believe that the language of fashion is the best kind of language. When you style an outfit by yourself, you communicate with the rest of the world without saying a single word.
It takes time, though. The knowledge of being stylish at the right place, at the right time, and for the right occasion is not just bestowed upon everyone.
It is a skill that ought to be learned. We acquired the skill of being moderately stylish by reading fashion magazines every day, watching fashion TV, and browsing men’s shirts online.
It surely took us time to understand which men’s printed shirts should be paired with which men’s bottoms. We learned the most valuable lessons in the end and incorporate them into our lives to this day.
Don’t worry. We’re not guarding our style secrets. Instead, we’re sharing how you can style printed shirts to the best of your ability.
Remember: if a fashion tip is worth sharing, we WILL share it.
1. With neutral bottoms
First things first, what is a “neutral” colour?
Well, in the art and fashion space, it’s defined as a colour made of two complementary colours. It can be lightened or darkened with white or black – creating a beautiful palette of earthy hues.
This means that the examples of neutral colours range from beige to taupe, grey, cream, brown, black, and white.
Back to our lesson: a classic printed shirt is going to be vibrant. So, we suggest keeping it balanced at the bottom.
If there is a bright colour featured in the printed shirt, then feel free to match the bottom with it.
However, neutral-colored bottoms for men are the more preferred option, especially if you are just beginning to pick out your outfits on your own.
2. With jeans!
A bit unconventional but wearing black jeans or denim jeans with printed shirts creates an urbane effect in your outfit.
Sure, it would look casual and laid-back. But isn’t this the vibe that most people like to go for, these days? When you don’t feel like dressing up, we feel that the jeans + printed shirt combo are here to save the day.
Our men’s printed shirts will almost always have buttons at the front.
To get a more ‘chill’ vibe, wear a plain white T-shirt underneath and wear the printed shirt over it and without buttoning up.
This kind of look works best when you’re on a beach holiday.
Complete the look by wearing shorts underneath. Remember the laid-back vibe we mentioned in the previous point? That’s what this outfit will achieve too!
It’s easy-breezy and will earn you a heap of compliments when you are out cruising by the sea.
PS: You can still rock this look while keeping the men’s shirts buttons closed.
4. Tuck. It. In.
But only when the nature of the event you’re attending is formal and serious.
So, if it’s an office party and you have been asked to “dress it down” but still keep it professional, then we’d recommend this piece of men’s clothing.
Printed shirts MAY be conceived as whimsical by many. But it’s not the case if your printed shirt is neatly ironed and void of wrinkles.
It’s all about how you want to present yourself to the world.
A sophisticated look laced by a touch of fun? Yes, please.
Secure the printed men’s shirts with designer belts.
Wear a pair of recently-polished chinos and you’ll be good to go.
PRO TIP: Your men’s belt should not be overly bold! So, no oversized buckles and blinding colours.
Printed shirts + solid-coloured shorts = Goa vibes only.
Ensure that the shorts are not printed. Otherwise, the prints of the men’s shirts will cancel them out.
REMINDER: wearing print on print is a major fashion faux pas. So, make sure your bottoms are plain so that your prized printed shirt can steal the spotlight.
7. Tie it at the belly
Roll up the sleeves of your printed men’s shirts till the elbows, boys! And, tie the two ends of the bottom of the shirt together.
This results in a chilled-out look.
We know, we know. This tied-at-the-belly look may be conventionally reserved for girls but we’re here to turn things around for the men too.
8. Indo-western feel
Printed shirts for men usually feature tribal prints, abstract prints, block prints or geometrical prints.
While they are reminiscent of Indian fashion, you can jazz things up by wearing a blazer over them.
The final outfit is a fusion of the timelessness of India and the trendiness of the West.
Feel free to accessorize with modern-day jewellery like men’s chains or cufflinks for men as well.
Besides, if you’re solely looking for creating the traditional look, block printed shirts in Jaipur will help you to slay.
9. Sweater Weather
Why not wear a plain sweater over your printed shirt so that just a small amount of the shirt peeks out and makes a great style statement?
Complete the ensemble by wearing stylish pants for men.
If you’re up for major experimentation – we recommend wearing flared pants with our printed shirts.
RECAP: Flared pants branch out at the bottom. In a girl’s world, they’re also known as ‘bell bottoms’.
They tend to add an unprecedented edge to any outfit.
