The Floral Shorts Spectrum

Styling Tip

Definitely wear them with a solid T-shirt, and consider layering with a cardigan on breezier days. Ditch the flip-flops and go sockless in a pair of plain canvas sneakers.

Shorts season is upon us, so why not be a little bold? You're definitely not wearing shorts in the office, and prints have made a colorful comeback recently, culminating in a surge of floral shirts in fabrics from companies like Liberty of London. Of course, we understand floral shorts might be a little bit too much of a stylish step to take for a lot of guys, but luckily there are many brands out there that have put out versions, from subtle to loud, in a range of price points.
