The Black Dress Shirt
The black dress shirt has earned a reputation as a night owl, looking more at home in the dimly lit confines of a bar or club than in the light of day.
Despite being less versatile than white and less popular than blue, black still offers enough options to be considered a welcome addition to any man’s closet. It’s how you pair it that matters. Pants of a lighter colour such as grey create a sharp match with a black dress shirt. This is your safest and most impactful combination for work, especially with the help of a well-chosen tie to elevate the level of sophistication.
Solids can be particularly effective, though a subtle pattern in the suit or tie will balance nicely with black. For nights out, stick with jeans of a darker shade of blue to present a more modern look.
The strong impact of a fitted black dress shirt can last, but not without attention to care. For starters, keep it out of the sun as much as possible to avoid colour loss. By doing this you will also be doing yourself a favour, since black retains more heat from sunshine than other colours do. Not to mention that in terms of style, a black dress shirt would make a peculiar statement amid the usual waves of bright colours and bold patterns of summer.
Overall, though, the black dress shirt stands out for its ability to hide or at least diminish flaws that would be more prominent with other tones. Black is also said to slim, which makes it a more forgiving choice, especially under lower light.
