Get your color combination right!
Stick to the basics – No matter what the century, there is no dilly dallying away from the basics – your beach shirt should match or look like a logical combination with your shorts/khaki pants or whatever bottom wear you have picked.
What we are trying to say is that your beach shirt should be a logical color combination – please don’t pair up your green polo with red board shorts and vice versa.
Here are a few color combinations we hand-picked to save your time:
- Any shirt paired up with khaki shorts/white shorts or pants
- Floral beach shirts with white shorts look even better
- Any solid colored bottom wear with a pastel shirt (However avoid blacks in the heat!)
A basic 3 step guide will help you in styling your beach shirt in a way that is easy on the eyes, might attract a few ladies and does not absorb too much heat on your beach day.
2) Open your heart to patterned shirts
The easiest one-way formula for an amazing, Hawaii beach look is to get yourself a patterned shirt – yepp, a floral pattern works even better!
Floral patterned beach shirts paired up with bottom wear in the color scheme mentioned in the first point is perfect for both – a casual day on the beach and a formal date night. It’s one of the coolest ways to style your beach outfit. Pair it up with nice sunglasses and a beach hat and voila – you are ready for an amazing beach day!
In addition to floral patterns, snake printed patterns are a huge hit nowadays. Snake patterns are also the way to go if you are really into blacks, it is one way to add some black pop to your wardrobe without really dying of heat.

But let’s go back to one of our earlier questions, what’s the occasion?
In our expert opinion, there is NOTHING that works better than a 100% softness woven, terry polo shirt for your date night. Now this might not look or feel great during the day, but you’ll be surprised how great a grey terry polo shirt will look on your date night.
