Capsule wardrobe ebook

The thing with shirts is that they are so easy to style, that most of us do not even consider them to be stylish enough to be put into an outfit without more layers of styling.

But when you are looking to style something simple, classic and minimalistic, shirts can be your best friends. When you want an outfit to look like elegant and sincere, always go for shirts.

And, styling them is really straightforward. Just figure out whether you want the trousers to be complementary or contrasting, and take it from there. In this list, we have picked shirts with both warm and cool tones to make sure you have an idea of what kind of colors you can mix to produce a really effective look.

Of course, you have to pay some attention to the silhouette, but that is also pretty simple to do. Shirt are either relaxed in the fit, or quite snug. You can balance them out in either case or accentuate their silhouette. 

Check out these five looks to understand shirts and their styling better.

Blue shirts are some best choices in any wardrobe – they can be formal, casual, day-wear, night-wear, laidback or business-like – whatever you want them to be depending on the styling. This first outfit on this list features a fitted blue shirt with its collar left open.

That, along with the shoes and the chinos that end right above the ankles affords a certain laidback appeal to the otherwise formal color combination of blue and khaki beige. This look does not have a belt, but you can add one if you want to make it more business-casual. Also, for a more formal look, you can choose some socks and button the shirt up.

This is a really great example of how to style a summer look with just a shirt and some fitted trousers. For summer looks, going for a lighter, more summery color is your safest bet.

This is a pale pink shirt with a very fine fabric, which means the fit will be even snugger than usual. The black trousers are also quite snug, which means your overall silhouette will be sharp and fitted. Finish the look with the a pair of black shoes and a black belt.

With black shirts, the main trick is in finding one in the right kind of fabric, since they are available in a wide range of materials, giving very different appearances. Silk shirts would, for instance, have a more glazed exterior compared to linen shirts, where the charm is in the understated texture of the fabric.

The trousers here are a dark olive green in color, bit of an unconventional choice with a black shirt. Most people would go for a paler pair of trousers, or black trousers for an all-black look. But the green of the trousers can really bring the black color of the shirt out. Add a pair of black dress shoes to complete the look.

We cannot curate a list of looks with shirts as the main element of the outfit and not include white shirts in it. They are the classics of every wardrobe. You can style white shirts in endless different ways.

Even when it comes to fabrics, you will have a lot of choices. This particular look styles a standard cotton shirt with some faded black denims and some brown shoes and a brown belt. Since the shirt is a classic white shirt, the accessories have been kept to a minimal with a simple silver watch.

For the final look of this list, we have a striped blue shirt – yet another classic. If you want to go safe with striped shirts, it is best to choose something with narrower stripes. The dark blue trousers add a great contrast to the lighter palette of the shirt, despite belonging to a similar color.

This is a great look to wear to work, or to a business meeting. You can also work it on a more casual day. The loafers and the belt introduce a second tone of color with their brown shade, contrasting with the blues.
