We all remember how sleek Leonardo DiCaprio looked wearing a hawaiian shirt in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 movie “Romeo + Juliet”. For many years hawaiian shirt had a bad reputation being associated with sleazy old men wearing cargo pants and cat-calling waitresses in cheap burger joints. Fortunately, for the past couple seasons they’ve been fashionable again and we’re here to help you find one you’ll love.
Bad news is that the exact shirt Leo has worn is impossible to get but there’s plenty of great options on the market and you don’t have to spend an obscene amount of money to get a great looking one. A well-fitted shirt from Topman will be enough to make your outfit stand out. And remember even if your shirt was $500 it’s still not something you should wear in an official setting. Unless you’re a celebrity, that is.
Hawaiian shirt is a versatile piece than goes well with different types of pants: shorts, jeans, chinos and even well fitted suit pants. Usually, it’s the standout piece with rest out the outfit being toned but if you’re feeling confident you can wear it with some striped pants or colorful sneakers. Just remember – don’t overdo it.
