Dress Shirts: A Staple in your Work Wardrobe

Most days, getting dressed for work probably includes a dress shirt. It’s your base layer – you’re wearing it with a suit and tie, a blazer or sport jacket (with or without a tie). Or, you’re taking a more casual approach and wearing it on its own with trousers. With so many options, it can be hard to know if you’re “doing it” right, isn’t it? What patterns, colors, fabrications work together? Let us give you some tips.
Check back throughout the week for after 5 (Wednesday) and casual (Thursday) picks, too. And let us know what you think.

This is a basic that is more than a basic. It looks like a solid blue shirt…but look closer. It’s actually a soft blue and white stripe. This subtle fabric is just enough to catch your eye, while the spread collar and modern Hugo Boss fit combine to create a sophisticated dress shirt that easily works with all your blue, tan, grey, olive and brown suits.

This narrow Bengal stripe from Peter Millar is another one of those workhorse basics for your dress shirt wardrobe. The rich violet color works so well with navy, grey and tan suits and sport coats. The color and stripe are strong enough to wear it as a sport shirt without a jacket, as well. Aside from all this, it’s the 2-ply cotton Nanoluxe fabric that makes this shirt a true winner. Nanoluxe is a wrinkle resistant fabric, so it’s a perfect travel shirt that will hold its shape out of your suitcase.

If you wear a suit to work most days, you probably have some basic dress shirts that you replenish after you’ve dry cleaned them one too many times. We highly recommend this all cotton spread collar shirt from Hugo Boss for your next “go-to”. We like its interesting texture, contemporary fit and soft blue color. It’s also available in soft lavender and, of course, white. Collect them all.

It would be hard to find a dress shirt that works as effortlessly with a tan suit as this one does. And not just tan – it will pop against a navy or grey classic suit, as well. From Canali, one of Italy’s finest mens clothing manufacturers, of course. The 3-color stripe is subtle enough to work with solid, striped or patterned neckwear, as shown in this picture (This tie can be purchased by clicking through with the “shop it” button, too.). This is the shirt to wear when you want to make a sartorial boardroom statement.

This blue gingham dress shirt from Ledbury is another summer basic. Because it’s such an even pattern, you can treat it like a solid shirt, by wearing it with a striped or patterned tie. The soft blue is perfect with your grey, navy and tan suits and sport coats. It is a great sport shirt, too (meaning, you can wear it more casually without a jacket).
