Not Just for Drunk Uncles and Ex Manila Mayors: The Aloha Shirt Is Back

And seriously stylish.
Comments

The tropical shirt is a summer staple, often detailed with brightly colored palm trees and hibiscus flowers. While many drunk uncles, occasional mayors, and ill-dressed tourists wear similar prints without much sartorial whimsy, don't let their cargo shorts and water shoes scare you. They're cool and thanks to the country's tropical climate, they're stylish and in-theme all year 'round.

Look for fresh prints and lightweight fabrics to make it feel modern. Balance the bold look by keeping the rest of your outfit tame (think: chino shorts and espadrilles). Here are 12 of the coolest ones.
