The Hawaiian Shirt

Say "Aloha" to the trendy "dad style" shirt you need this season

Did you ever think a shirt that channels the energy of your dad on vacation could ever be cool? No? Well, in this era of dad-approved clothing trends that no one really understands but everyone follows anyway, we’ve got the newest item to add to the list: Hawaiian shirts.

Spotted on your favourite celebs such as Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes, Harry Styles, and many more, Hawaiian shirts have been star-approved, and are now a must-have for guys this summer season. The street style was also in cahoots this season as it was set about putting the Hawaiian shirt back at the forefront of menswear. Characterised by its vibrant and bold, nature-based prints, not since the noughties, when the tropical palms were so in vogue, have we seen it surf such a fashion wave.

Although the bold, flashy prints may be intimating at first, Hawaiian shirts are versatile and actually easy to wear. The bold and boxy style can be paired with some simple jeans or shorts for a casual but fun day outfit, making it perfect for the hot weather.

If you want to feel like you’re on a tropical vacation (even if you’re not), take a look at some of our current favourite Hawaiian shirts that we have gathered below.
