Ahh, the Cuban collar shirt. This classic trend has definitely made its way back to the menswear department. No, this is not your typical Hawaiian shirt. The Cuban collar shirt is back and its here to stay. This 50’s inspired shirt trend is a versatile piece which needs to be in every guy’s wardrobe. The Cuban collar shirt is characterized by a wide collar and short sleeves. Talk about retro classic. Get inspiration from old classic movies such as “Back to the Future” or “Rebel Without a Cause.” and put your own spin to it. However, if you’re afraid of looking like you just stepped off a bowling lane, a cruise ship or an old school movie, there are several ways to style this classic piece. I personally prefer wearing this in the city—mixing it with my favorite pair of tailored trousers and a pair of white sneakers. If you want to go all out and embrace the 50’s trend, pair it with a fitted white tank top for an old Havana feel. Maybe add a pair of black and white oxfords, your dad’s Ray-Bans and you’ll look like James Dean in no time. *wink*
