An exotic pattern can make up your look but it can also easily destroy your vibe. Proceed with caution and the right tips from us, the experts.
First things first: Look away from the Tom Sellec type of attitude, focus on the bad boy-meets Elvis style. The Hawaiian shirt, invented in 1935 in Honolulu, as a virtual postcard for tourists to take home, skyrocketed in the fifties, when the bad boys of style _aka rockabillies_ doned them, together with their rolled up jeans and all stars.
The eighties did their part in spoilling their connotations, as they made them into a «weekend – by – the – pool – and – barbeque» dad thing, but the kitchiness seemed to stick well. So, this year, after two years of runway persuasion by our favorite fashion brands, the hawaiian is here to stay, sexier than ever.
THE ELECTRIC RIDE SWATCH TIMEPIECE OFFERS A JUICY, FLUORESCENT LIME TWIST TO YOUR LOOK
DO IT RIGHT
·Mix and match, go crazy on your combos and remember to put a retro referance together with modern materials.
·Two unbuttoned buttons, a nice panama hat, a contemporary pair of shades and your shorts. There you have it, sexy.
·If you go with pants, be sure to choose cuffed ones, chinos or distressed denim.
·Tattoos, beards, barber shop haircuts, they all add to the correct attitude. If you got them, now is the time to flaunt them.
·Tired of the shirt? Take the print and put it on your bermuda shorts, like we did. Easy does it…
