10 Casual Shirt Outfits For Men

Capsule wardrobe ebook

Check out these amazing 10 casual shirt outfits for men.  

We all love wearing casual shirts, right? A casual shirt is comfortable, easy to maintain and if you wear it right, it can help you enhance your look without many efforts.

Honestly, we're not a huge fan of wearing suits every day. We love to keep our dressing simple, comfortable and casual. And casual shirts are perfect for this. 


A casual shirt is a perfect balance between too casual and too formal.

It's formal than a tee and casual than a blazer or jacket. Plus you can wear it in many different ways.

Such as you can pair it with chinos, jeans and trousers. You can tuck them in when needed or keep them untucked when you are going out with friends, or shopping etc.

We recommend having three casual shirts (One white, one navy & one black) in our Capsule Wardrobe guide.

However, you can decide to pick any colour you like. The only thing you want to make sure is don't go for over busy prints and trendy designs.

The Fit Of Your Casual Shirt

And, one of the most important parts of a casual shirt is FIT.

A fit of your shirt can make or break your look. We discuss more about the fit in our brand new guide How To Shop For Clothes.

The important thing here is to remember that the casual shirts are supposed to be fit differently from the dress shirts

There are mainly three different types of fit you get.

  1. Slim Fit
  2. Relaxed Fit
  3. Skinny Fit.  

We recommend you stay far away from the skinny fit. Because it can highlight all the wrong parts of your upper body and that's not a good thing, right? 

However, depending on your physique you can opt for either comfort fit or slim fit.

If you are someone with a beer belly then a comfort fit is best for you. It will help you hide your belly and make possible make you look in slimmer than you are. 

And if you have toned up physique then, of course, you can go for a slim fit.

However, there are no hard rules here. It's more about what you feel most comfortable in. 

The Fabric Of Your Casual Shirt 

The whole point of wearing a casual shirt is staying comfortable. So, the fabric of your shirt is equally important as the fit.

You should go for a fabric that's light and breathable. 

So, how do you know if the fabric is breathable? Just put the fabric of a shirt against your mouth and attempt to breathe through it.

If you face resistance pushing air through the fabric then probably the fabric is not breathable. 

Try this breathe test whenever you go shopping for your casual shirt next time. It will help you pick the right fabric every single time.

However, lightweight and breathable fabric do not mean transparent or see through fabric. So, stay away from the see-through fabric.

As again that can highlight all the wrong parts of your torso.  

There are many different types of shirt fabric you can pick from.

If you are not aware of different types of shirt fabrics then check out our Infographic that covers almost all types fo shirt fabrics. 

Stick To Basics

As we recommend in our capsule wardrobe guide, it's best to stick to basics. Basic style, and basic colours.

We recommend having shirts in white, navy, black, blue. Of course, you can add a few self-print or stripes or checks shirts based on your liking. 

But, still, we recommend having more solid shirts because solid shirts are versatile and you can wear them with almost anything.
