Shirts6 Outfit-Making Bold Shirts to Wear This Weekend
Every day of every month at GQ, we start your morning on Instagram with visual advice on What to Wear Today. But we want to go deeper. Give you the nuts and bolts of how to get the look into your wardrobe. Today we're shouting out big bold patterned shirts to ride out the summer in.
Wunderkind model Michael Lockley is undeniably stylish. His personal mix of '70s rock glam and '90s grunge (plus a healthy dose of 2016 Cool Teen) helps him come correct to literally any party, red carpet, runway show, or music festival we've spotted him at. As a fashion insider, he's got a backstage view of every new trend in the making, like bold print shirts.
When it comes to wearing a shirt of the "going-out" variety, the knack isn't so much in following rules as it is in knowing how to style the shirt to your unique and awesome personality. Think of one like Lockley's here as the night time companion to your Hawaiian shirt, with some added sex appeal. We like the medium sized paisley pattern at play in a tonal color palette (a key for keeping patterns from overwhelming your look). Lockley wears his open at the collar with slim black jeans and a healthy portion of jewelry but this shirt would look just as amazing buttoned up under a slim black suit or leather jacket.
