\nStarting out\nIf you are new to colours, prints and patterns, we suggest starting simple and working your way to brighter and bolder options as your confidence grows. Begin by pairing a bold colour or pattern top with a simple and plain bottom. For example, choose a coloured stripe, such as our Pure French Linen Stripe Long Sleeve Shirt with a neutral tone chino or short. Introducing colour with relaxed styling (i.e., untucked linen shirt), helps deliver on an effortless Summer look. \n \n \n\n \nFun in the sun\nThere is never a better time to wear colour and patterns than around water, it is almost expected. Add some personality to your outfit with our new range of Summer print swim shorts. Paired with a plain linen shirt or a basic tee, these shorts make for fun, comfortable and versatile outfit for a day in the sun. \n \n \n \nKeeping your colour and patterns in check\nKeep in mind once you work your way up to bolder colours and prints to not go overboard by pairing too many together. We recommend always contrasting with a more muted \/ plain top or bottom to balance the look. For example, the Linen Blend Hibiscus Print Short Sleeve Shirt with a light-coloured chino. This keeps you from having the outfit look too busy. If you are leaning towards one of our floral prints, we have both bright and muted tones to match your style.\n \n \n \nSmart casual and fun\nTo create a smart casual style perfect for any event, pair a sports jacket with a neutral pattern. Have a go at swapping out your usual white button-up shirt with something louder. A check shirt is an easy option when injecting colour into a smart casual look. Like a stripe print, a check print will allow for versatility and style in your wardrobe. If you want to start small, try our range of bold socks that pair well with pants and a sports jacket. Print short-sleeved shirts can also add a sense of smart elegance to your look in the warmer months. Aim for subtle prints, that aren't too loud and dress them with a neutral-toned short and blazer that pair back to the colours of the print.\n \n \n \nOur GAZMAN range of colours, floral prints, checks, and stripes are a great investment for when you are thinking of adding something versatile and adventurous to your wardrobe.
