Prints, like monochrome, have caught on really well in India and surprisingly, men have taken to them too. Printed pants are a fabulous option for a brunch or a day gathering, and when teamed up with a bright jacket that corresponds with the print, they can make for a really striking look. These Tom Ford pants, with their floral print and olive green tone, are a great option even for those making a start with prints. Team this with a solid coloured jacket and shirt or - if you want - go experimental with a gorgeous print-on-print look.

Alternatively, you can be quirky and wear it with a suit, in the place of your classic white shirt. Available only at The Collective stores.
