Mastering the denim shirt can be hard. Traditionally worn as workwear, a well worn shirt can create a rugged and stylish look. However there are more ways to wear denim than just casual. When you invest a little time and energy in the look you’ll reap the rewards of looking great. Here’s how:
Treat it like a jacket
Wear the denim shirt over a t-shirt and throw caution to the wind over how many buttons you fasten. Rolled sleeves are a nice touch on warmer days. We'll leave whether to go tucked, un-tucked or even half tucked the style often worn by David Beckham.
Dangerously good, mixing similar tones of denim can be super effective but there is a risk. If you are too unsure about which types of denim to combine then try some dark jeans with a light denim shirt. Getting the fit right counts for a lot, tricks like slightly wider trousers paired with a closely fitted shirt will give the illusion of a narrower waist.
Part of a Suit
A daring look. Select a high quality denim shirt that's well pressed and not rough around the edges for this look to work. This can be a really refined look. You'll find the your choice of shirt controls how smart or casual the outfit looks.
As part of separates
Denim shirts work beautifully well as part of a well composed ‘separates’ outfit. Try mixing with a navy blazer, stone chinos and a knit tie. You don't need to go over the top like these guys though. Unless you feel that's cool? Then more power to you.
Pair with a Cardigan
We all know 'layering' is effective. So why not layer your denim shirt with a cardigan. It's the ideal over layer for those cooler days. We enjoy wearing our denim shirts with anything from thin navy cardigans to pullovers. Why not try wearing your denim shirt with a chunkier knit cardigan like Steve McQueen here.
