You Have A White Shirt, And Now You Want Options
The white dress shirt is the quintessential dress shirt. It conveys authority, looks dashing, etc., etc., blahblahblah… The downside? You’re sick of wearing one every day and want to change it up. I hear you. Here is the next step…
Tired of White? Get a Blue business shirt.
These are by definition, less formal, so don’t bother with French Cuffs here. Stick with a good solid button cuff, and pick the collar that fits your face like a semi-spread.
Blue Collar Is Big
p>Blue business shirts harken back to classic Americana, and evoke “everyman” status. If a white shirt says, “I’m the boss”,
A blue shirt says, “I’m just like you”.
Blue means business. It’s acceptable in almost any work situation, and gives you another option when you need a change. Blue is also a calming color, and it looks great on almost all guys, but especially those of us with blue eyes. Remember, play to your assets.
Blue isn’t boring. Blue is a base.
Don’t get caught up in being flashy. These shirts are classic – that’s why I included them in Essentials! By creating a simple blue backdrop for your work style, you can branch out in other areas. This makes blue business shirts highly versatile. Don’t be scared to step things up with an interesting tie or patterned slacks.
