Spring is the season for rain showers and blooming flowers, yet floral remains one of the few patterns that men are still hesitant of wearing. Since floral is usually associated with women, we can understand one’s reservations of the pattern. But as we’ve noticed over the past few years, the pattern has appeared more on the bodies of men from the high-end runway shows to every day street-wear brands. Of course, we would never suggest that you jump on any trend and purchase a full wardrobe of any garment just because “it’s having a moment,” so here are a few ways you can embrace the trend in other subtle ways.
If you are like the many men who may feel that full-fledged floral suits, blazers or buttons ups aren’t the most practical purchases, then opt for these subtle accessories:
