THE SHIRT STYLE GUIDE29th May 2019
PLAIN & PRINT
A plain shirt will see you from corporate to cocktails whatever the season. It’s all about the fit with this pivotal garment. Choose a slim fit shirt to flatter the silhouette and wear it tucked in for a neat, classic look. Don’t hold back on individual touches such as cufflinks and leather belts – it’s key to completing your outfit.
A plethora of shirt patterns exist and will uplift a deceptively simple outfit. A printed shirt adds an eye-catching element to chinos, jeans and tailored pants. Let it speak for itself and dial down the rest of your ensemble, opting for darker hues on bottom. It will serve you well throughout the year.
STRIPES & FLORALS
A striped shirt is possibly the most versatile item in a man’s wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down for just about any occasion. A simple solution to outfit challenges, it works just as well as under a suit as it does with a casual jacket or your favourite knit. Keep the neck unbuttoned for a more laidback look and style with slim fit chinos and sneakers.
Cool and collected looks call for a floral shirt. There’s no need to reserve it for summer, florals work equally well in all seasons. When it comes to styling, there’s only one fit for it – slim. Dial down the rest of your outfit and wear it tucked into plain jeans for a look that’ll take you from garden parties to city strolls.
