How do you wear a casual shirt? The short answer is this: as you would for any other shirt. A bit more complicated is how you wear a casual shirt with flair. The casual wardrobe can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. Most guys will therefore tend to just retreat to the standard foolproof everyday outfit: a t-shirt, jeans and a nice, leather, work-appropriate pair of shoes.
But there is more to this “Jean and t-shirt” formula than just providing a bit of useful wardrobe variety. The plain, uninspired ensemble can be spruced up by clever styling. If you are dressing for a casual occasion, you may want to opt for a simple, denim-based shirt. A white or black shirt in dark, neutral colours such as black or dark blue will go well with most jeans. Simple faded jeans or some tapered skinny jeans in solid colours will also look great with this kind of shirt.
For something special you may want to go for a more unique look. One of the best fashion ideas for polo shirts is to wear them with a pair of slacks or a dress. You can always dress it down by wearing jeans – dark colours usually work best, and you can even wear a pair of casual sandals under your polo shirt to complete the look. Another idea is to wear your polo shirts along with a pair of slacks. This way, you get the benefit of both comfort and style. This is a particularly good option for a formal event.
Think outside the box and you will find plenty of ideas for clothing that will not only look good but which will also flatter your figure. For example, how about a maternity polo shirt? Maternity outfits are usually designed with stretchability in mind so they are perfect for those expecting mothers who need to pack away their infant clothes after their newborn arrives. They are also very practical, making it easy to change your outfit depending on the weather. You can team it with leggings or long pants to make a fashionable combination.
Most men are not keen on chinos, especially when they have to spend an afternoon sitting in a restaurant drinking beer with their friends! However, you can team a denim top with a pair of denim jeans. The key is to pair a denim top with a pair of denim jeans that have a low-rise or no-rise fit. These kinds of cuts allow the bottom half of your outfit to be exposed. The result is a casual chino that looks great on almost every man!
If you want to look good when you are out playing tennis or golfing, wear a sport coat that has a casual look about them. The best fabrics and patterns are those that come in natural colors like brown, grey, or white. For instance, if you want to dress up a t-shirt or a casual blazer, go for a solid colored sport coat in one of these shades. There are some gorgeous options for men’s sports coats, with lengths that can go right to the ankle or even longer if you want.
Your sneakers should always match your shoes. How do you wear a t-shirt with a pair of skinny jeans? Simple – you will have to wear a sweater or cardigan over your sneakers, so that the sneakers have less of a glare when you run. For example, if you normally wear black skinny jeans, then you should wear a dark grey or black sweater over them. Not only will this give you a professional look, but you will feel warm as well!
And last but not least, keep in mind how you like to wear your socks. Do you love your sneakers but hate the socks you have to put on after you’re done playing? Then get a pair of long leg socks (usually in black or dark gray) and throw them over your jeans and your sweater. Not only will this give you warmth, but it will also be distracting and make you less likely to forget your sneakers!
