The Blue Dress Shirt
As bold as you want it to be, the blue dress shirt comes in so many shades and with so many variations that it almost ceases to be a category on its own.
Blue has been a staple of the male wardrobe for generations, beloved for the calming and masculine undertones it holds. Whether you’re just beginning to build your professional wardrobe or have been refining it for decades, the blue dress shirt can help.
Even as a solid shirt, blue can create a wide range of impressions depending on the type of weave. Chambray and denim are associated most strongly with informal attire, especially when featuring a button-down collar. Blue also features heavily in plaid shirts and gingham, in the latter case due to its nice balance with white. Something with sheen, as in a broadcloth weave, increases the level of formality to work appropriate.
Light blue also pairs exceptionally well with navy. This combination is impactful but easy enough for anyone to pull off, whether it involves a navy suit for a strong professional look or a plain blue dress shirt atop navy pants for more relaxed settings.
In either case, a subtle pattern will invite a closer look without veering from the soothing influence of blue. Fine stripes of red, white or purple are among the most common, but you can also experiment with gingham, grids and even contrast in the cuffs or collars. Here, white is the standard, as demonstrated most famously in the world of high finance.
