As the temperatures steadily climb, we’re shifting our focus on tropical prints that remind us of sunny summer days by the beach. Printed men’s shirts are definitely one of the season’s biggest must haves, and tropical printed shirts are the ultimate in summertime style! Below are a few of my favorites; some of which are really easy to dress up or down depending on your needs.
As always, when purchasing new pieces for your wardrobe, great fit should be the first requirement. Obviously, you need to love the pattern, but how it fits on you is extremely important.

Short sleeve button-ups are a great option for rocking a tropical print, particularly if you’d like to dress up your look a bit. You can wear them nice pair or shorts or slim-fit denim. You can even dress them up underneath a suit for a cool take on date night. Coordinate the shirt with colors that are found in the print to match with your bottoms or suit.
For a more casual feel, the tropical print t-shirt and tank top are a great way to go. These are the perfect laid-back options for summer BBQs, days at the beach and day parties. Again, pair them with relaxed shorts (or simple board shorts) or nice denim.
When it comes to tropical print shirts, you can opt to stay cool and classic with more subdued prints or go for a more fashion-forward look with bolder hues and patterns. It’s all about pairing like colors together when styling your looks. The trick is not to be too matchy-matchy, but rather, coordinated.
Hopefully these small tips will help you create a few new tropical-inspired looks for your warm-weather wardrobe. Enjoy!
