Pulling off floral prints this spring

If you live in a country where the winter is slowly coming to an end, like me in the UK you will appreciate this post as much as you my friends who live in warmer climate all year round.Its almost spring and then summer isn’t that far away either, it’s time to be more playful with your wardrobe.

Floras florals florals …. no they are not just for girls. Just like pink is not just for girls. Many guys shy away from wearing bold floral prints which is totally understandable because you think it will knock points off your macho scale. On the contrary, it will add a boost to that scale because it takes a “real” confident man to pull floral prints off.

So I have got a few tips on how to up your macho points wearing floral.

1. Don’t be a clown.

If you are not are not going to a fancy dress party, stag do, or are enjoying a tropical holiday in Hawaii. Then never do a top and bottom floral print combo, more especially if they both are two different prints. You don’t want your admirers wondering if you ran through an exotic flower garden in the dark. Lol!!! Overly bold and colourful  floral prints may end up looking too busy, so keep it to a minimal and do not go overboard.

2. Focal point.

Your floral print should be the focal point of your ensemble . It’s already loud and bold , the least thing you want do is match it with an equally bold piece. You want your floral piece to be a statement and not an accompaniment to something equally bold. So you would want to pair  this statement piece with something minimal, has got a complimentary colour and tones down your overall outfit. You want eyes to be drawn to this floral statement and want to feel confident when people look at you, because trust me,you will be complimented for the right reasons


3. Scent 

Now that you have got the perfect look put together , you feeing like a true gentleman in your floral print. You want to walk into a room and turn head for the right reasons. How you smell is just as important as your outfit. You don’t want to be all flowery and smell like roses or candy or anything  too sweet, At the end of the day you want to retain and  possibly score up your macho points. A woody or oudy earthy fragrance would do just that. You want to smell opulent, sexy , mysterious , masculine. My classic go to perfumes for this are Bleu de Chanel  and Black Orchid by Tom Ford.


Now that you look and smell great, Ladies would want to be with you and men would want to be you  ‘Macho Goals’. Be a complete winner by complimenting  your look with a smile it is the best accessory you can wear.
