BY ARNE – The summer may be slowly drawing to a close, but the patterned shirt trend is here to stay. Floral patterns are joined by fresh new looks in the form of delicate designs and prints. I reckon now is the time to get your hands on your very own shirt with an outrageous print. Fashion is about having a bit of fun, after all. My own take on this key piece goes a little something like this …
The look is based around the casual Eton shirt, with its eye-catching design. Thanks to the subtle colouring, the focus is very clearly all on the stylish print. The way the pattern flows seamlessly onto the button strip is a sign of the high quality standards and eye for detail this Swedish manufacturer is known for.
You can always team a shirt with a trusty pair of smart trousers. This cropped pair from our new brand Hope make for a powerful fashion statement, whilst turning the footwear into a feature in its own right.
The bomber jacket from J.Lindeberg completes the tidy look I have created by taking the shirt as my initial inspiration. In matt black and without any embellishments, it adds an extra sense of calm to the picture. Plus, the water-repelling properties mean that this functional item has the added bonus of protecting the shirt from the wind and rain.
