It’s Time To Break Out Your Party Shirt

As if you even needed an excuse.

Want to feel like you’re on holiday, all of the time? The answer doesn’t lie – as much as we’d like it to –  in leaving your Out Of Office permanently on. Instead, it sits a little closer to that theory of dressing for the life you want, not the life you're currently running.

Re-introducing: the party shirt. It’s the one piece in your wardrobe that’s more about drinks than about deadlines, the feel-good trend that’s holiday-ready, always. Talk about DIY good times and manifest dressing.

When it comes to the party shirt, more is more. Yes, the louder, the better. Hibiscus prints! Pop colours! Tropical feels!

Need some credentials? Think Tom Selleck as Magnum, P.I., Al Pacino as Scarface, Tom Cruise in Cocktail; Elvis as, well, Elvis. Also: The Beach Boys, Leo DiCaprio as Romeo, the brilliant mind that was Hunter S Thompson, Brad Pitt in Fight Club, Christian Slater in True Romance; Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura, and pretty much the whole cast of Weekend At Bernie’s. Also: your dad.

So, how to wear your new shirt of choice? Team your with got-attitude loafers or white trainers. If you’re looking to play it safe, match your pants to the background colour of your shirt. If not, wear whatever the heart desires (Speedo’s anyone?).

Vacay, here you come.
