We’ve seen a shift away from the traditional “suit and tie” look in recent years, toward a more casual and individual look. Men are increasingly allowed to flaunt their personal style, even in professional settings, and we love it. That is not to say that sophistication has declined; quite the contrary, in fact.
We encourage you to wear your favorite dress shirts with a casual twist. Also, get rid of the tie!
Untuck That Dress Shirt
Untucking a dress shirt used to be frowned upon, but nowadays many dress shirts are designed to be worn tucked or untucked. Untucked dress shirts are no longer considered “sloppy,” but rather a sign of casual sophistication and confidence.
For a casual Friday at the office or drinks with friends after a long day, business casual dress shirts with contrasting buttons can be paired with raw denim jeans or trousers. Wear an untucked dress shirt with a blazer for a refined dressed-down look that commands attention.
Roll Your Sleeves
Roll the sleeves and pair them with white jeans and casual shoes for an interesting casual dress shirt on the go. The Commander Shirt combines function and versatility, with roll tabs to keep sleeves secure. Lightweight twill works well for this look and helps to reduce wrinkling. It’s amazing how quickly a dress shirt can be transformed into a more casual ensemble.
Combine with a Sweater
A casual dress shirt layered under a fitted cardigan has a sleek and simple look. Wear a slate gray Essential Casual Shirt underneath a light gray blazer cardigan for an eye-catching achromatic look.
Show off your favorite sweater with a dress shirt, whether you’re going for a bright and bold look or a more subdued look.
Prepared for Vacation
Feeling carefree on vacation necessitates dressing the part. Leave the khakis at home and replace them with a few short-sleeved dress shirts. Being on vacation does not preclude you from looking put-together. Short sleeve dress shirts assist you in accomplishing this. Put on a pair of leather sandals and a classic straw hat to stand out at the resort.
Yet Classically Casual
The khaki/dress shirt combo is a time-honored and respected casual look. Dress it up with a luxury watch or add some flair with brogues. The most important aspect of this look is that the shirt and trousers fit perfectly and are made of clean, crisp fabrics.
Black against black
As long as you use different textures, pairing black with black is always a good idea. The Commander Casual Dress Shirt in jet black cotton twill is a good place to start. For a sleek Hollywood look, pair your black jeans with a black knit sweater vest. Experiment with different fabrics to create a variety of ways to wear a dress shirt casually.
Because of its ease of dressing up or down, the dress shirt is an essential component of any capsule wardrobe.
Athletic and casual
Nothing beats an athletic man striding down the street wearing joggers and a utility dress shirt. This look exudes a relaxed sense of confidence and energy. Pair this look with some new tennis shoes and a casual watch to be ready for whatever the day has in store.
It goes without saying that the best way to pull off any of these looks is to make sure your casual dress shirt fits properly. To achieve a stunning tailored look, use a fit guide.
