Pattern & Floral: an After 5 Solution for Sophisticated Style

Heading out for a night of casual fun or to a formal function can sometimes cause a little dressing confusion. You know it’s an opportunity to add a little spark to your wardrobe, but you also know you want to look appropriate and polished. You can do both, by adding some pattern into your clothing options. A great patterned jacket, sport shirt and coordinating patterned tie…they can all work together and separately. Let’s talk about our favorites.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. See you tomorrow for our top patterned picks for casual dressing.

We’ve sang the praises of Paul Smith’s prints, and here’s another great one. This is ideal for a casual night out, while it’s still warm out. It’s made of very high quality crisp cotton and the navy and white contrasting pattern looks great with dark jeans. It’s not always easy to find a printed short sleeve button down that isn’t too trendy or too “old man”…search completed.

Garden party or dinner party al fresco? Here you go. This is an awesome jacket from J.Crew . Sure, it’s a floral jacket, but in shades of blue, it’s actually fairly subtle. And it’s done in an authentic Liberty print. Liberty Art Fabrics are known for their iconic prints, especially florals, so if you are going to wear a jacket in a floral, this is the one to get.  Wear it with tan twill jeans or flats fronts and a white shirt.

Another Liberty print from J. Crew, this tie is so perfect for a summer affair. The chambray ground and bigger floral print give this tie some edge that will look great with anything from a navy cotton suit and crisp white shirt to a tan linen jacket and dark jeans.
