Floral Print for Tahiti

Vacation is the perfect time to celebrate fresh and floral patterns.

While you get out in nature and explore the tropical wilderness, it’s the perfect time to don a lightweight and breathable flower-printed button-up.

All the functionality without sacrificing a beautiful design, Jacquemus does floral printed practical pieces best.

This tonal Jean Camp-Collar Floral-Print Poplin Shirt should be on the top of your list for your next tropical destination holiday.

Cut from tactile poplin that has been printed with retro floral motifs, the style has a handy top patch pocket – the perfect size to keep your phone or passport close by.

Although this style is best paired with the matching floral pants from Jacquemus, it would also look great with a simple pair of white linen pants or shorts.

Graphic Art Print for Croatia

While on holiday is the perfect time to try something a little experimental from eating foreign cuisine and exploring new lands, to testing out new fashion combinations.

A loud, bright and graphic printed shirt is just the way to do that.

This White Silk Fujita Shirt from Casablanca features a colourful, interesting and intricate design that’s sure to spice up your holiday-mode outfits.

Made from soft and luxurious silk twill and featuring a top patch pocket, you might never want to take it off.

To really push yourself out of your comfort zone, try pairing a graphic art printed shirt with a pair of shorts or light pants with a clashing print and see if you can master the art of contrast.

Animal Print for Santorini

There’s no better pairing than a lightweight button-down and the rolling shores of the Greek Islands.

Ocelot print done best, Charles Jeffrey Loverboy’s Blue and Pink Silk Shirt is a vacay must-have.

The boxy silhouette is cut from a woven silk and cotton blend, features a top patch pocket and is perfectly oversized for comfort even on extra-hot days under the Grecian sun.

Wear with a neutral pair of cotton pants or a pair of board shorts for a beach-ready look.


Abstract Print for Provence

Go for something bold and opt for a shirt you couldn’t wear to your 9 to 5 while relaxing on your annual leave.

Play with colour, texture and warped prints and have some fun with your styling choices when it comes to unique shirts.

This Abstract-Print Poplin Shirt by Paul Smith is a perfect example of a holiday-appropriate shirt adorned with an abstract print that you must add to your holiday packing list.

Cut from lightweight poplin with a Cuban collar, this shirt not only belongs in an art gallery but also on your back while at a warm European destination.

Best paired with basic chino pants or shorts, and a simple sneaker, let the Abstract print of this pale blue shirt do all the talking.
