A bold patterned shirt can anchor an entire outfit, adding major style points for the wearer. With so many prints out there, where do we start?
The classiest of all fancy prints would be — drumroll please — leopard. But hey, don’t just make do with any leopard print shirt.
Invest in good material, like Duchesse satin, silk shantung or any fabric heavier than cotton to look chic and not cheap. It’ll work on its own or as an overshirt on top of a simple tee. Pair it with tailored shorts to elevate the look or style it with jeans for a laidback appeal.
With that in mind, we present you some of our favourite go-big or go-home pieces that will bring out the fun and fearless spirit within us.
