The Shirt That Is a Must-Have Summer Staple

Think tacky tourist, but make it fashion.

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, Miley Cyrus and Harry Styles, Hawaiian shirts have been star-approved, and are now a must-have for both guys and gals this summer season. Designers such as Gucci and Dsquared2 are incorporating tropical patterns on their own take on shirts and clothing, while new and upcoming label Double Rainbouu has even shaped their entire beachwear brand around the retro-style shirt.

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 something slim like a column skirt for an updated look or tie a Hawaiian shirt in a knot in the front for a cropped effect, and pair the shirt with simple jeans or shorts for a casual but fun day outfit.

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.
