A Man’s Guide To Dress Shirt Color & Pattern

There is a level of beauty, elegance, and sophistication that comes with putting on a dress shirt with great colors and patterns. Even so, it calls for a level of skills and fashion intelligence which is something that many people may get wrong. But once you get it right, you are set to be the person of interest for many.  

Let The Dress Shirt Be The Focal Point

When you are putting on a dress shirt with a solid color or patterns, let it be the only thing that people need to focus on. This is especially if you are new to this. You can pair the dress shirt up with neutral colors that will not steal the attention from the dress shirt. This will bring its beauty to the forefront and make it stand out even more. .

What Is Your Scale?

Typically, patterns will vary depending on the scales. There are those with big scales while others have small scales. Smaller scales are easier to wear and to pair them up with clothing of other patterns as well as solid colors. This is as compared to larger scales which may make our look to be a little too much and not in a good way.

Bold And Solid Colors

Many people like to play safe with colors, and the safest dress shirt color includes blue and white. However, you can go further and wear pink and lavender. In case your teeth are stained avoid brilliant white colors because they highlight your teeth when you smile. If you go for bold colors, pair it up nicely with a black suit to be safe. It will also give off a brilliant contrast. Above everything else, consider the occasion that you are attending. Is it work or a social gathering?

What About The Tie?

If you are wearing a bold color and you want to wear a tie, you have to find a tie that has a similar color for the background. For instance, if you choose a light pink dress shirt, ensure that the smallest strip to for the tie is light pink and the same shade. Also, if your shirt is patterned and the scales are small, wear a tie with a pattern that is bold. Do the exact opposite for larger scale and the contrast brought out will be excellent.

 Always Start Small

As you are still getting used to wearing solid colors and patterns, ensure that you do not try to incorporate everything in the first day. Star with a small scale pattern with a solid suit. Then move up the scale by integrating other patterned clothing to your look as you get better and better at it. When mixing patterns, ensure that you mix small-scale patterns with large-scale patterns for better contrast.

Avoid Two Similar Bold Patterns With The Same Scale

This is a fashion mistake that will make your entire outfit look too busy. It is not pleasing to the eye and does not show off a great contrast. In this line also, do not put on two different bold patterns with the same scale. This will result in both items of clothes trying to compete for attention and therefore messing the outlook.

Try these tips, and you will have an easier time wearing your dress shirt with color and patterns. Let your dressing bring the best out of you every time.
