When can I use a white shirt? How do I style a white shirt? And what do I need to know before I buy a white shirt? White shirts for men have been a wardrobe staple for many years – and for good reason! White shirts are versatile, stylish, and classic and they should definitely be a part of your wardrobe.
When can I use a white shirt?
White shirts for men can be used for almost all occasions. They are perfect for formal occasions, such as weddings, but they are equally good for a relaxed afternoon with friends, for a first date or for a night out. No matter the event, a white shirt will always make you look both stylish and put together.
How should I style a white shirt?
You can style a white shirt in lots of different ways – all depending on the occasion and what type of look you are going for. If you want to stay classy, the most obvious way to wear your white shirt is under a suit. Want to be slightly less formal but not exactly casual? Pair your white shirt with a pair of chinos or jeans and add a pair of leather boots or sneakers – perfect for the office or a date night. For a casual summer look, go for a short-sleeved white shirt with a pair of linen trousers or shorts.
Which type of white shirt can I get?
A white shirt is not just a white shirt – there are lots of different versions that fit different occasions. And there is a huge difference between the formal non-iron business shirt and the casual, slightly wrinkled linen shirt. Most types of shirts are available in white, so all you need to do is pick your favourite style: an Oxford shirt, a linen shirt or maybe a short-sleeved shirt with a resort collar?
What do I need to know before buying a white shirt?
Before getting your next white shirt, you should consider a few key areas: Where do you want to wear the shirt? Is it meant for the office, for a party or maybe for a holiday? Fitting, fabric and collar all play a part in the overall look. You should also consider how much you want to spend when you buy a white shirt. A non-iron white shirt will cost more than a regular model – but you will get a shirt that is easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.
