Prints Charming: Ready to Play With Your Evening Style

This upcoming season’s new prints and patterns translate into what you’ll be wearing for a night out in an especially strong way. The checks, plaids, graphic prints, and all the great updates we discussed in this week’s Clothes & Conversation are modern and stylish. And when you’re dressing for a night out, you can certainly have a little more sartorial fun to step up your game. There’s no time like the present to start working them into your wardrobe, so you can get plenty of use out of them. And that’s why we are careful to pick designs that are versatile enough to wear with different items, both new and things already in your closet. We’re not trying to look “trendy” – just modern and fresh.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Thursday) for key casual pieces in knockout prints and patterns that will stylishly get you through many weekends to come. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

One of our absolute favorite pieces for a casual night out when you want to show off your sartorial game. This Hugo Boss blazer is made of a soft terry cotton for an unstructured piece that’s the perfect blend of a jacket and a sweater. And it’s the digital broken-stripe pattern that really makes it amazing. The trim, contemporary fit looks great with your straight leg dark jeans or dark navy twill pants (and not in a weird, matchy way). Whether you go super casual with a broken-in t-shirt or dress it up a bit with pattern button up shirt, you’re going to love it. Black sneakers or a plain toe oxford complete the look. Vince - Sporty Jaspé Colorblock Striped Henley Sweater

A good-looking dark sweater can be the key to a casual after 5 outfit, and no one does sweaters like Vince. From their easy, contemporary fit that looks good on every gent to their modern, yet timeless, design choices, they do it right. The mix of the color blocking and variegated stripes in this cotton and cashmere blend Henley sweater is trend right for the season – and any season. The mix of blues plays perfectly into the importance of denim for the season, and looks great with dark jeans, over a t-shirt for a casual night of fun.,default,pd.html Brooks Brothers - Paisley Print Sport Shirt

‘70’s inspirations are abound this season, and Brooks Brothers’ small foulard paisley print is the subtle nod to the trend that is so right for the Mark Shale gent – the perfect update without looking overly trendy. This print looks great in their Milano fit for a slimmer silhouette that works with the trend. But it comes in their more relaxed Regent and Madison fits, so go with what is most comfortable for you. Whichever fit you choose, it has a modern look with a shorter button down collar that is easy on its own or under a charcoal shawl collar cardigan (to play into that ‘70’s vibe). Just add your favorite jeans and hit the town. Theory - Efron Ranunculus Print Shirt

Floral prints aren't just for the ladies. Theory’s interpretation uses a graphic optic treatment to the print that gives it a masculine feel, in a crisp black, white, and grey color combination that is dapper for a night out. The contemporary fit ensures it will look sleek and stylishly updated, especially when you add dark wash jeans. Since this is a statement print, you’ll be able to get even more wears out of it when you layer it under solid black and dark grey sweaters throughout the season. Robert Graham - Black 47 Sportshirt

Robert Graham’s prints make for perfect “going out” shirts, in a modern,easy fit that works for every gent. This subtle black and blue optic print looks great with dark indigo or black wash jeans. The iconic Graham contrast trim under the collar and cuffs add a dose of color for just the right amount of attitude for an evening out. Vince - Engineered Oxford Stripe Button Up
Vince - Engineered Oxford Stripe Button Up
It’s not always easy to find a good way to play with stripes in a button down shirt, but Vince has done it in just the right way, using a combination of color blocking and engineer stripes. The dark blue cotton shirt has a soft point collar and looks great with your dark jeans, playing with that denim-on-denim look in a really subtle way. Add dark canvas slip-ons or black sneakers for a casual look; add black oxfords for a more dressed up feel. Vince’s contemporary fit is easy, and not too trim, so it’s just right for most gents. 7 Diamonds - Moon Bridge Trim Fit Short Sleeve Print Woven Shirt
7 Diamonds - Moon Bridge Trim Fit Short Sleeve Print Woven Shirt
There is still a lot of Summer left, and this 7 Diamonds shirt gives you the chance to start showing off your style know-how right away. The dark navy and white geometric print is easy with shorts or a pair of jeans, so you can wear it day and night. The fabric has a bit of stretch to it for comfort, but even though it is a contemporary cut, you’ll find it’s not overly fitted - just enough to keep it stylish and avoid that “old guy” feel some short sleeve button downs can have.
