STYLING WHITE DRESS SHIRTS WITH JEANS/CHINOS
Dress shirts were traditionally worn with official or semi casual outfits, but in the recent times a new trend has come up to style the dress shirts with jeans or chinos ,button to the top or normally buttoned and untucked .
The kind of items to go with this style though are very specific :
-The shirts should be slim fitted or bespoke to avoid a boxy look ; this is where the excess materials hangs from the shoulders straight down , creating a squre silhoutte.
-The shirts should not have a flat bottom.
-The shirts should have a small colar that won't leave a tie gap when buttoned to the top.
-The shirt can either be long or short sleeved
-Unpocketed shirts are best for this style .
-The shirt should be long enough to avoid a croptop look ;the zipper of your pants provides an easy to remember rule ; The front of the shirt should end somewhere between the midpoint and lower end of the zipper. the tail of the shirt should end between the middle and and bottom of your pants pockets.
Other recommeded shirts colours are ;black ,babypink or sky blue
This look goes well with skinny jeans but not too skinny i.e should fit .
-The jeans should not be too long ankle length should be ok with this style depending on shoe preffrence.
-The jeans or chinos should be for your particular body shape
Recommeded colours are; white, grey, black ,blue, washed jeans, black chinos
Since skinny jeans taper in at the bottom, it draws more attention to your footwear than, say, bootcut jeans would. Therefore, it's important to put some thought into the type of look you are creating, and choosing the footwear that is right for you. And remember, the same rule goes for the other items of clothing you choose to complete you skinny jeans outfit.
For example - the way you layer and create a silhouette can dictate your overall style. So, unless you're going for a skin-tight look overall - it can be a good idea to contrast your top half with your bottom half by going top-heavy. If you style the top half of your body with something less fitted - like an oversized jumper of loose fitted shirt, you draw more attention to your skinny jeans - and this is the item that you want to show off, right?
For this look the recommeded shoes are ; chelsea boots, chuck taylors, vans, monkstraps ,white plimsolls, brogued captoes and Penny Loafer.
