The Three Essential Men’s Shirts You Need in Your Wardrobe
Men’s shirts have come a long way since the traditional white button down and now come in a massive selection of styles, colours and patterns. It can be tempting to splash out and bag yourself all the new styles in men’s shirts which is fine if you have the cash but you can achieve the latest looks by just investing in three different shirts, suitable for every occasion. Ok, so you probably need more than three men’s shirts in your wardrobe but if you get these key looks right you can start to build up your collection and ensure you always stay on trend.
1. The dress shirt
A smart shirt is no longer just a boring essential item which is pulled out only for weddings. A smart men’s shirt can now be a fashion item in itself thanks to the top designers producing elegant and flattering cuts with just the right amount of detailing. Choose a shirt which is long sleeved and with button cuffs to avoid messing about with cufflinks. White is the ideal colour as it can be worn with a tux for an ultra formal look or with a suit to the office. You can even dress a white shirt down by rolling up the sleeves, undoing the top button and wearing with a pair of jeans for a perfect office-to-bar look. Top designers Peter Werth and Scotch and Soda excel at these types of men’s shirts.
2. The smart casual shirt
A little less fancy than the classic dress shirts, these men’s shirts are all about versatility and keeping you comfortable at work. Again, long sleeves work best, especially if you have to wear a tie for work, but feel free to roll up your sleeves in warmer weather for a truly casual look. You can afford to be a bit more daring colour wise with these smart casual shirts. Light blue and pink can look very classy and you can even get away with subtle checks or stripes – a style which BC London have perfected. Go for extra detailing to give your look the fashion edge such as epaulettes, pockets, buttons and a designer logo.
3. The casual shirt
Most men’s favourite, the casual shirt is made for teaming up with jeans and trainers for a cool weekend look which can see you through from shopping, to a pub lunch and afternoon drinks. Checked or plaid men’s shirts are set to be massive again this season so invest in a well cut shirt with a distinctive check to keep your look bang on trend. Solid Los Angeles do an excellent range of short sleeved men’s shirts in a variety of checked colours and patterns and Solid Campus have the long sleeved look covered.
The most important thing to get right with men’s shirts is to ensure that they fit correctly and are not too tight or too short. If in doubt, go back to basics and measure yourself to ensure you know exactly what size you are. Once you have your size sorted, check out Reem Clothing and pick out your three essential shirts.
