Trends can be cyclical. Sweater vests (trucker hats), tracksuits and sweater vests have all seen a revival in the past year. According James Hillman . Flowers are not always out of fashion. You have come to the right spot if you are looking to welcome spring with a variety of floral focused pieces. Three different ways you can incorporate floral patterns to your wardrobe have been highlighted. Hawaiian shirts
The Hawaiian Shirt has received a poor reputation in the past. It’s traditionally been thought of as the extravagant and garish reserved for fashion-averse uncles, who want to look good on sunny days. Hawaiian shirts are a great choice for warm weather because they feature lightweight materials, open-collars, and a loose fitting, breathable design.
The Hawaiian shirt has been adopted by many of fashion’s most famous names. Ralph Lauren, Casablanca, Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren all created lines that can be used as a reference.
This spring, the trend has returned back to its roots. Instead of being exposed to the Parisian fashion house’s eyes, the trend has returned to its Aloha, bold roots. Think fancy dress parties and Johnny Depp (Raoul Duke/ Hunter S. Thompson) in Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas.
You can replicate the look by shopping at vintage shops, which will likely have many classic Hawaiian shirts on hand.
