Your Dad’s Hawaiian Shirt Gets an Upgrade

With summer in full swing, you’re probably adjusting your wardrobe to fit the season. One way is by adding prints like florals and geometric patterns. A casual and easy way to do this is to pick up some patterned button-up shirts from the men’s section. The fit is going to be more oversized, giving you the ultimate relaxed summer vibe. Singer Hayley Kiyoko is a fan of this look, draping it over a white crop top in her music video for “Curious.”

Laureen Uy used one as a beach cover up and she even mixed prints.

Kaila Estrada gave a streetwear spin to this look pairing a printed polo with a white crop top and belt bag.

Check out a few picks for this summer staple and style it your way.

Zara Loose-Fitting Palm Tree Shirt

Let’s start off with muted colors like pink and yellow. This top features a print of different kinds of leaves. The collar and bottom hem are made of a contrasting ribbed material in forest green. This reminds us of dad’s Hawaiian shirt but more tamed. Available at Power Plant Mall.

Penguin Birds of Paradise Shirt

Not your typical floral pattern, this shirt has a birds of paradise print in orange and baby blue. The top itself comes in a dark blue hue which you can pair with denim shorts and crop top underneath. To make the colors stand out more, you can have your accessories match like orange tassel earrings. Available at SM Megamall.

J by Jasper Conran Tan Geometric Print Short Sleeve Shirt

A geometric print also works for summer. We can see this being turned into an oversized shirt dress. Throw on some cycling shorts underneath so you don’t have to worry about flashing everyone. Finish off your outfit with a pair of espadrilles, crossbody bag, and sunglasses. Available at Debenhams, Estancia Mall.

Maison Kitsuné Venice Patched Short Sleeve Shirt

You can also cop a shirt that has a minimal pattern. This shirt has a patchwork style design. The center panel features this season’s Hawaiian print while also having an asymmetrical length. The patch pocket, collar, and cuffed sleeves come in contrasting shades of blue. Available at Hoodwink, SM Aura Premier.

Topman White and Red Print Short Sleeve Shirt

For a more in-your-face print, this Topman pick might be just right. The base of this shirt is white but has different prints on it. There are leaf-like patterns along with a paisley print in coral, periwinkle, and pink shades. Pair this with white shorts and you’re ready for summer. Available at Greenbelt 3.
