The Striped Dress Shirt
Stripes, in all their forms and potential colour combinations, are simple to incorporate into any wardrobe.
Depending on the level of colour contrast and thickness of the stripes, these dress shirts can be subtle, bold or somewhere in between. While thin stripes of low contrast create a strong corporate look, wider stripes with greater contrast are better suited to casual occasions. Here, too, it’s acceptable to play with a few different colours of stripe in a single shirt, rather than sticking with a duotone option as you would be advised to do in a more conservative setting.
Some men shy away from pairing striped shirts with anything but the most basic ties or accessories. True, solid pieces of a contrasting or complementary colour can be a sharp choice, but there is plenty of room for further experimentation as long as you work within the limitations of your dress shirt. When the look becomes distracting rather than charismatic, it’s a sure sign you’ve gone too far.
Blue and white is undoubtedly the most common colour duo for striped dress shirts, combining the masculinity of the former with the safety of the latter. This route, besides being versatile, is among the easiest to pair with other apparel and accessories.
