Bowling Shirts Are Fun Too! – 3 Exciting Ways To Style Them
We know what you’re thinking now.
Ohh bowling shirts! This one’s not for us, because duh! Who wants to look like a boring uncle!
Well, wait. They’re more fun than you think. Not kidding.
Street fashion has a lot to do with the attitude rather than the clothing. I mean you can wear the coolest faux fur collar sweater in town, but if you don’t know how to carry it off, then it’s not going to cut it for you.
In the same way, bowling shirts don’t always have to be boring or old school. You can look just as chic as any other streetwear in bowling shirts too.
They are totally in fashion this summer and quite in time, because they are an ideal summer piece. They were very popular on the runways of Milan and Paris fashion weeks during SS 2017 as well.
Now here’s how you can pull of easy breezy bowling shirts without looking like your dad:
Light weight fabrics
Let’s put aside whether or not you find bowling shirts stylish now. I’m sure we all agree with the fact that they are comfortable. Well, it is because they are cut wide and boxy and you know how over-sized fits are a hit with street style right? It’s a great favorite among plus sized Americans for the same reason.
Put together with light weight breezy fabrics in different colors, bowling shirts are more than apt for hot summers. Plus they carry a number of interesting prints and embroidery these days like bamboo, dragons and bamboos.
Shorts are the way to go
Another way to get away with bowling shirts is to pair them with cargo shorts online. A pair of sporty shorts and some classy sneakers should do the trick. You can even go for sandals as long as you’re keeping your shorts modern. And let’s go for some exotic summer colors for the shirt. It’s all about the colors you see.
I think we can all learn a lesson from Charlie Harper here.
Something as simple as the prints on your shirt can change your look from drab to fab. Opt for pastel shades, floral prints (yes, florals are for men too), unique geometric prints and even traditional prints with a unique quality. They can work wonders.
So go ahead and throw on your best looking bowling shirt and head out. Trust me you’re going to set the trend.
