The bold short sleeve button up shirt has exploded in popularity over the last couple of years. From vintage Japanese prints to neon colored palm tree prints, there’s something for everyone. Not only are the stylish, but they’re comfortable, which means that every guy ought to own at least one.

Here are some examples on how you can style your bold short sleeve button up:


The simplest, and arguably most popular way to wear the piece is with jeans and some comfortable shoes. It makes more sense to pair with some simple pants and a basic shoe to allow for the shirt to be the focal point of your look. You can add a lightweight denim jacket or blazer with it too!

This look works great for a casual event, BBQ, or Happy Hour drinks with friends. If you’re not into something too bold, you can definitely find a more simply patterned shirt that doesn’t need to grab a ton of attention.



Another fun and somewhat unexpected way to wear this piece is with a suit. Something that’s understated in a similar way to the jeans in the casual look works best because it allows the shirt to stand out. Try buttoning the shirt up all the way and if the collar is stiff enough, go ahead and pair it with a plain tie. Otherwise it works great all on it’s own.

This look is especially fun on casual Friday, for a fun date night, or if you’re going out on a slightly dressier night out to a swanky night club.


The most classic way of styling a bold shirt is to embrace the summer mood and pair it with some shorts and fun sunglasses. Even if you’re not a cut off denim kind of guy, throw on some fitted chino shorts and you’ll be looking great! Leading suppliers and distributors of wholesale sunglasses offer their large collections.

This is a perfect look for anything you have going on during the daytime in summer. You’ll be styling at a BBQ, a day at the beach, or just about anything you have going on.
