Denim is one of the most versatile elements of a man’s wardrobe. Denim shirts have earned their way from being a dad shirt to an essential style piece. Here are three classic ways to help you pull off your denim shirt with ease and classic style.
Double denim previously got a bad rap but, thanks to hipsters and creatives, it’s become a symbol of effortless style. The possibilities are endless for this look; from the traditional blue and navy denim to blacks and grey, you will have a lot of fun playing around with these pairings. Try our Lightweight Overdyed Denim shirt and a pair of Indigo Selvedge denim to achieve this look. Leave it untucked and paired with white sneakers for a super casual look or tuck it in and pair it with brogues for a dressier night look.
Style Tip: Chambray is a great alternative to denim shirts. Switch out your denim for chambray for a major style upgrade.
Denim shirts are a great substitute for flannels and can be worn all year round.They add a much-welcomed update to the jeans-and-t-shirt look. You can play it safe and choose an entire blue denim look or take it up a notch and pair different colored denim. Channel your inner style guru and layer our Lightweight Overdyed Sand Denim Shirt over a Vestige Graphic Tee paired with a pair of Black Naked and Famous Jeans. Again, sneakers are a great way to keep your look casual while brogues dress it up.
Style Tip: Remember, when wearing double denim (with or without a t-shirt) you want to achieve contrast. Wear lighter colors at the top and darker colors at the bottom.
The denim shirt is a great alternative to a dress shirt. However, there a few considerations to think about when pulling off this look. If your office culture is on the formal side the denim with a suit look is probably not for you, however, if your office culture allows you to inject a bit of personality to your work look then this is definitely a look you should put to the test. When considering which fabrics to wear it with, the answer is simple; “which tailoring would you wear a blue shirt with”. It is also important to stick to solid blue denim and avoid washes as much as possible as introducing too many elements will create a busy look.
Style Tip: When pairing denim shirts with tailoring choose a slim fit shirt for a clean look.
