My closet is completely stuffed with gingham. I'm sure yours is too! From shirts to blazers and ties--- gingham is everywhere in menswear. It was time to buck the trend and start looking for other prints to round out my wardrobe. I wanted to get in on the Tropical trend, but I'm not about to wear a giant pineapple on my back. I'm a little more subtle than that. After a bit of searching, I found this abstract palm print from Club Monaco. It's an eye-catching pattern without all of the cheek of a Hawaiian print shirt. It can easily go under a blazer with a tie for the office or unbuttoned for a beach adventure.
Styling tip: When buttoned up all the way, I always sport a little extra ankle. Gotta show a little skin somewhere! Otherwise it can come across as a bit stuffy.
