Tommy Bahama’s Island-Inspired Look Gets an Update

Thanks to Tommy Bahama, island life has a new look. It’s younger. More playful. And more flattering, too (it’s totally okay to admit that’s something you care about). Take the brand’s signature shirts, for example, and read on to learn how they’ve changed.

The Fit: Though still relaxed, it’s trimmer. As long as you pick up the right size, there’s no chance of looking like you’re drowning in it.

The Fabric: It’s light and airy – think linen, cotton, silk, and silk blends – which is basically code for breathable. So staying cool? No sweat.

The Prints: Fun, island-inspired, and original, they work with more than your old man’s khakis. We suggest pairing them with the brand’s now-leaner pants.

Start filling your closet with island-state-of-mind staples. Our Tommy Bahama Boutique opens Friday, June 20, at 3PM ET.
