TOP 5 CASUAL SHIRT STYLES

As much as you guys should know that a man’s suit is his ‘armour’, there are days when we are not at battle (well, most of us anyway) and need to step out of the uniform and into some comfortable clobber. Jeans are the first choice for casual bottoms, but what about the top half? Drum roll please…

It’s all about casual shirts! There are a few casual shirt styles that are as essential to know as learning how to go to toilet so here they are and be sure to pay attention, because once you’ve read the post, you’ll need to go get at least three to give your wardrobe some variation…

  1. WHITE T-SHIRT

The white T-shirt is a classic men’s staple. Every guy should own at least one. The key here though is to get a good fitted tee that’s not too loose around the neck. It should hug well but not like Simon Cowell’s and it shouldn’t be too loose that you’re rivalling Juelz Santana in the hip hop stakes. When rocked right, there’s nothing that looks more cooler and cleaner. Think Marlon Brando or James Dean. Pair with some clean-cut specs like Oliver Peoples glasses to top the look.

  1. THE V-NECK

The V-Neck T-shirt is another great casual style. It offers something a little different as the collar dips, helping to add a little depth while accentuating the chest. Avoid if you have excessive chest hair that can house woodland creatures. As much as our mum endorses it, ‘The Bollywood Hunk’ look is not a great achievement.

  1. THE POLO

The polo is another classic, but it is so often underrated. They come in a variety of colours, patterns, hues and shades. Did we mention that you can wear them with almost anything?

  1. THE HENLEY

A real casual piece is the Henley. Like Kristen Kreuk, its mixed heritage is something that makes it that much more special. A cross between a T-shirt and a button-down shirt, the Henley is a great weekend staple. Just promise us you’ll wear it unbuttoned.

  1. THE RUGBY

A great alternative to a polo, the rugby top is another casual shirt that can be dressed up a little and it’s become a little trend over the last couple of years too.
