This autumn, why not inject some diversity into your look and make a statement with a bold print? Let’s face it – wearing a print other than plaid, check or pinstripe can be a little daunting and takes some practice to perfect, but your wardrobe will thank you for it.

Winq‘s resident fashion blogger and stylist Michael Parker, AKA “Boy In Breton“, shares with us his tips on pulling off prints this season.

Trousers: Wear printed trousers with refined, staple wardrobe pieces. Team with a plain white shirt, grey crew sweatshirt and brogues for a smart impact. Swap the brogues for a block colour sneaker to make this more of a relaxed look.Men's Fashion Style File Printed Trousers

Shirts: Use the shirt as a layering piece as opposed to a bold statement. Pair it with a fitted T-shirt and add a leather jacket. Below the waist, keep things simple with your favourite jeans and finish with boots for a carefree approach to wearing prints.Men's Style File Fashion Prints Shirt
