Ace Ventura but make it fashion.
Hawaiian shirts may not be the first piece of clothing you think of when planning a fashionable look but designers and street style stars are helping shed the piece’s negative reputation one tropical print at a time. Previously reserved for vacation, these boxy styles were a hard no when it came to styling but just like track suits and dad sneakers the time has come to elevate Hawaiian shirts. Oversized and bold, this look may require a styling tip or two before you’re ready to wear it: for example, try your favourite hibiscus or palm print tied in a knot over a sleek swimsuit or tucked into pleated trousers or a slim skirt for a more modern update. The beach isn’t the only location you can sport this trend either – take it to the street with clashing prints like at Ports 1961 or with an athletic pant as seen at Palm Angels. After all, just because travel is on hold doesn’t mean you can’t channel vacation vibes in Canada right now. Plus, a bold print is guaranteed to boost your spirits.
