The formal shirt is one of the most important items in your style armoury, not least because it is incredibly versatile. Pair with dark jeans and Chelsea boots for a sophisticated, edgy look, or combine with a sharp suit and tie to complete a sleek, professional outfit.
The Classic White Shirt
Every man needs one, it is that simple. Suitable for almost any occasion, the white shirt is truly timeless. This is the epitome of simple sophistication and the base upon which you can build a vast array of outfits to suit your personal style preferences.
How to Wear It: A simple black tie will top this off perfectly, just make sure it is not too broad- a slightly thinner tie will maintain the elegance of the look and leave you looking slimmer. All buttons should be done up, including those on the cuffs.
Blue Shirt with White Collar
A bold contrast shirt oozes confidence and will make an immediate impact. But be sure to get measured- ensuring your shirt fits correctly and is the right length on the arms is essential.
How to Wear It: Be a little more adventurous with your choice of tie- go for strong diagonal stripes in a darker blue with a thinner white stripe to match the collar.Alternatively, ditch the tie altogether, undo the top buttons and pair with some well fitted, dark jeans and smart leather footwear for an assured smart-casual look.
