STYLE GUIDE: SHIRTS

We know, we know: The “dos” and “don’ts” of short sleeve shirts have claimed a pretty prominent spot in wardrobe discussions for a mighty long time. But long gone are the days when the short sleeve shirt was reserved exclusively for pen pushers and the likes – in the right fit and with the right proportions, its style and comfort is simply unchallenged.

A perfect highlight piece, the lace shirt basically screams ‘craftmanship’ and elegance with every fibre. Like, literally: Crafted from a soft, textured, open-wave crochet fabric, it reminds us of the good ol’ days of tailoring.

Paired with gold-trimmed pearl buttons and subtle-yet-bold pops of color, as in this masterpiece from Casablanca, you have a piece of timeless elegance that effortlessly elevates both daytime and evening attire.

If it wasn’t clear already that short sleeves shirts left the space of office attire a long time ago, a denim shirt will end every discussion. Plus: Effortlessly blending rugged charm with casual sophistication, it gives the Swiss knife a run for its money when it comes to versatility.

We’re talking laid-back weekends. More polished occasions. Barbecues. Music festivals. Date nights. Sports games. Paired with sneakers, loafers, boots… screw it, you will look great with it when you’re going barefooted. To make a long story short: It’s a match.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Also dubbed the Cuban shirt or pyjama collar (or bowling shirt or aloha shirt, never mind, it has many names), the camp collar shirt’s eponymous collar makes it a perfect spring and summer essential: With its one-piece collar sewn directly to the body of the shirt, this allows the collar to lay flat against the shirt – which makes it breezy and comfortable in summer heat.

Add a relaxed silhouette, vintage-inspired color, lightweight cotton, and a chest pocket for your sunglasses or a banknote ready to spend on spring’s first ice cream and you’re good to go.
