Up until now we’ve focused this blog primarily on women’s style, but we’ve also heard from the fellas that you’d like to see more posts on men’s style. So guys, this one’s for you! We thought we’d shine the spotlight on one of our favorite men’s style staples: the button-down shirt! From classic dress shirts to eccentric sport shirts, this is one item of clothing that you can never have too many of. The Shirt can say it all; whether it’s worn suited or hanging casually over a pair of jeans, the shirt you choose says a lot about you. It reflects your personality, your style and even your mood that day (perception is reality, even in your clothing!). So have a little fun getting dressed in the morning and pick a shirt that conveys the “you” you want to have shine that day!
Here’s just a few of our favorites from our current Spring selection:
The Stand-Out-In-A-Crowd Shirt:
Bold in both pattern and color (and even texture), these shirts add a little fun to your wardrobe. They’re the perfect way to stand out – to be remembered at that job interview, be unique, add some flair to your style and never get bored with your work attire. A shirt with a bright, interesting pattern gives off a playful yet confident vibe, and shows you aren’t afraid to rock a bold look. Mixing a bold floral with bright plaid? Yes, please! Whether it’s date night or Friday at the office, your bold shirt will suit your positive demeanor. So get creative with color, pattern, or both!
Elite floral/plaid shirt, $155 | Sand black/white floral, $198
The Flying-Under-The-Radar Shirt:
Sometimes you don’t necessarily want to stand out or wear a shirt that says “I want to be noticed.” If flying under the radar is more your speed, stick with dress or sport shirts with a more understated pattern or color while still maintaining your style. Opt for more traditional prints and neutral tones, and you really can’t go wrong. Think: classic plaids, muted geometrics, subtle pin dots.

The I-Mean-Business Shirt:
Movers and shakers need a shirt that says, “Let’s get down to business!” This dressed-to-impress shirt looks smart and sophisticated, eye-catching yet not distracting – the perfect dress shirt for the modern, forward-thinking guy. This doesn’t mean you can’t step outside the box with your shirt choice, but if you’re utilizing color or pattern you’ll want to choose a shirt that grabs attention without detracting from the task at hand. Pair your suit with a bold colored dress shirt in a traditional pattern (like this aubergine gingham shirt) or a subdued color in striking stripes for a sharp, modern look.
