There isn’t much summer left. Before you know it, Labor Day will have come and gone. And in no time, you’ll be back in your winter uniform of black and gray. One of the best parts of summer fashion is the freedom to wear bold patterns. Think bigger than plaid or gingham. This is a chance to go completely left of center and try something new.
Bold patterns are like abstract works of art. Strangers turn their heads to get a second glance. They gain the silent respect of people who admire the designs.
In order to pull them off, the key is minimalism everywhere else. If you’re rocking a top like our Roses Zip Short Sleeve Shirt, make sure your pants are toned down considerably. Try solid black or indigo jeans. You want this shirt to be the star of the show. In order for that to happen, it can’t have any competition.
If you pair this shirt with a pair of acid wash jeans or a pair of heavily patterned shorts, you’ll look like an art experiment gone wrong. Too many other patterns in your look will clash and have disastrous results. In order to truly be bold, you have to exhibit restraint everywhere else.
Spend the rest of your summer going where no man has gone before with your boldness. But remember just a touch of bold is all you’ll need.
