The denim shirt used to be something only unfashionable dads would wear, but times have changed and the denim shirt is firmly back in fashion. This is great news as it is so versatile – dressed up, down or layered, the possibilities are vast.
Check out the tips below for wearing a denim shirt and ensuring that you stay right on trend.
1. Half-tuck Beckham special.
David Beckham could wear a bin liner and look amazing, but you can still take a few tips from the master of fashion himself. The undone, messy-but-still-together look complete with a half-tuck, rolled sleeves and several gaping buttons could be hard to pull off; however, team it with shades and a beanie and you won’t be able to go far wrong.
We love the casual, not-on-duty look, as carried off rather spectacularly by Scott Disick. This look comprises dark denim for the lower half, cool shoes and a plain T-shirt, all finished off with an open, pale denim shirt. Don’t worry about wearing two types of denim at once – double denim is back with a vengeance!
3. Full tuck-in
Although traditionally worn as workwear, there is no reason denim cannot be dressed up for certain occasions. Try tucked-in mens Farah shirts from stockists such as http://ejmenswear.com/brands/farah with a pair of smart trousers, such as khakis, and carefully-matched accessories. Try choosing a shirt with a little more detail, such as one with front seams, and team this with a scarf, aviators, and a swanky wrist watch.
4. Suit combo
Have you ever considered denim as part of your formal wear? Now you can – a denim shirt worn with a tie and suit jacket just got incredibly cool. Choose a shirt that is not bulky, such as a cutaway collared slim fit, and off you go.
5. Surfer laid-back
The masters of surfer laid-back do it best – look at Zac Efron! The beach is a great place to show off your latest denim shirt. Make sure it is a lightweight shirt, suitable for the heat, and match it with a pair of your favourite shorts; your choice of shoes, from Havaianas to Converse or sandals; and finish off the look in style with a steaming pair of aviators.
