The Versatility Of Denim Shirts

Your wardrobe is severely incomplete if you don’t have a denim shirt in it. Denim shirts are versatile. You can wear them almost anywhere, from the airport to the streets. And the best part is that you don’t need a lot of creativity to make them work with everything, from suits to chinos. In this article, we’ll show you some ways you can rock a denim shirt so that you can just throw one on when you’re too confused about what to wear.

The Summer Denim Look

The purpose of this look is to attain a balance a between too formal and too casual. For this look, wear a slim-fit button-down denim, a plain white thin-fabric t-shirt underneath it and a pair of shorts. Make sure both your shirts have appropriate lengths. Stay away from shorts that go beyond your knees, instead go for chino shorts. Lastly, wear white sneakers to complete the look.

Cocktail Denim

This look can save you from all the cocktail dresses and the confusion you have to face while picking what to wear to a cocktail party. This look is extremely simple and easy as you just have to put on a short-sleeved denim shirt, a pair of stylish trousers and some accessories to complement your outfit. We recommend you to wear a fabric that’s neither too light nor too heavy. It should be something between a light and a fabric of medium thickness so that you can wear it any time of the year. Make sure the shirt fits you well, but stay away from shirts that are too tight. Wear pants with traditional tailoring with side tabs and pleats. Complete your look with either loafers or monk straps. Finish it off with elegant accessories: a leather bracelet, a pair of tortoise-shell sunglasses and a silver dress watch. Ditch the sunglasses in the night to avoid looking like a fashion wannabe.

The Casual Look

You may have seen David Beckham in this classic look a lot of times. Being so simple and conventional, this messy and scruffy look still makes you stand out. Beckham, for this look, mostly opts for a lightweight button down denim, a white t-shirt and a pair of dark jeans. Roll up your sleeves, and leave a few buttons undone so that the t-shirt is visible and you can get a layered look. If you think you can pull it off without looking too messy, tuck half of your shirt in to get a more similar look.

There’s a lot of room for accessories in this look. So, like Beckham, you can use a pair of sunglasses, a sports watch and a beanie to show people that you can dress as well.

Denim With Suits

At first, wearing a denim shirt with a suit doesn’t sound like a great idea, but once you try it, you can’t enough of it. Denim has a lot of potential when it comes to formal and semi formal suits. Here, you’ll witness the true versatility of denim. To nail this look, a light, pale blue cutaway-collar denim is enough with a suit. You don’t even need a tie. Pale blue denims look great with charcoal suits, and if you want wear a tie, put on a textured one so that it complements your denim. For a casual, more relaxed look, ditch the tie and undo a few top buttons of your denim.
