The Definitive Guide For Men On What Pants To Wear With Every Kind Of Printed Shirt Like A Pro
While it's safe to say that an average man is most likely to sport a printed shirt just on a tropical getaway, a recent trend boost may make you think twice. Over the last couple of years, prints on men have been making their way to the mainstream fashion world.
Ranveer Singh may be the king of prints, but that doesn't mean prints have to be as maximal as he is. As more and more men embrace this trend, there is a whole world of possibilities emerging with this look.
Prints can add a whole new level of edge and make your basic outfit exciting. Here's a definitive guide on what pants to wear with all kinds of printed shirts:
1. Minimal Print

Not all prints have to draw attention, you can go classic with paisley, gingham or polka dots. A printed shirt can even elevate a basic jeans and sneakers look, if styled well. If you're opting for print for the first time, go easy on the colour scheme.
Keeping it monotone and building your outfit around one colour is advisable. Keep the accessories and layers basic with either black or brown when it comes to formal wear. For casual, a basic white or black jacket and white sneakers should do your outfit justice in the most minimal way possible.

Just because Hawaiian shirts are associated with being on a holiday doesn't mean these babies can't be rocked all-year round. As prints go for a modern upgrade, so do the age-old classics. Major fashion houses took a spin on Hawaiian shirts in grown-up colour schemes of black, forest green, and sand offset by pops of colour making it super trendy.
Choose a Hawaiian shirt in a slim cut, contrary to the older boxier version for a more structured fit. Pair your shirt with chinos and oxford boots for a spin on casual Friday or well-fitted jeans and sneakers for a relaxed fit. Evoke holiday vibes all through the year!

Not everyone dares to pull off this supposedly 'feminine' print, but it's 2019 and we need to get over these outdated gender norms for good. One can rock a floral printed shirt with a pair of rugged denims or shorts and sneakers for a casual brunch look or pair it with a solid coloured suit for understated elegance.
If you can't find any other way to pair your floral shirt, black jeans will be your saviour. It's also important to pair the textures right in terms of look and feel. For example, a shiny or leather bottom won't flatter a cotton dress shirt. Go for a smaller print size or minimal colour scheme if you are a little hesitant to wear bright florals. Your style will blossom, anyway!

When we say animal print, Ranveer Singh's all leopard print suit comes to mind, doesn't it? As daring as it was, pulling off animal print doesn't have to be a very difficult task. Considering that these animal prints are super bold, it's best to keep the rest of your outfit understated. Sticking to basic silhouettes and pieces like chinos, classic denims and blazers are key to make your shirt the centre of attention.
For an understated yet classy way to pull off animal print, opt for monotone prints like zebra and pair with bold solid coloured separates. This contrast will definitely act as a welcome change from your usual take on animal print, which mostly involves warmer tones.
