A myriad of options exist in shirt form for us men. A special shirt can let us express ourselves stylewise. A good shirt can be a serious go to option in the way the Little Black Dress (aka the LBD) can be for women. Here are a few that you can get good wear out of for starters-
The denim shirt-
Undergone a renaissance in last few years and definitely must-have. A less rugged denim shirt can be worn under a blazer or jacket. However, the easiest way to wear is with black denims. This is a look that has been around for a few years, but the contrast between the blue and the black denim is easy on the eye and looks really good. If you haven’t tried this look then it’s about time you did. You just can’t lose here.
The White Shirt-
Often listed in style essential columns. The plain white shirt is simply done under any coat or jacket, so giving the rest of the outfit a blank canvas. I like a white shirt with some light patterns on them. I wear plain white to work on occasion, so like to wear a patterned version for my downtime. Yeah, I do still refer to domestic bliss with my 2 kids as downtime. Although that is not an altogether accurate description! See my Hugo Boss white shirt below-
The Floral Shirt-
Gone are the days when flowers on your shirt are the preserve of the CND movement. I have several in different shades….well dark blue, black, white and cream versions. Bases covered then. Weekend wear is the perfect time for this shirt. It will work really well under a leather or bomber jacket, as well as a blazer/sports jacket. Looks pretty nifty just with denims as well. Pretty versatile altogether. Afternoon coffee, dinner anywhere, drinks….all covered.
Next time…more shirts.
Thanks for reading.
