3 Tips to Style a Dress Shirt, New York, New York

Learning new tips for how to wear your dress shirt this summer can create comfort when dressing for different occasions, including casual and formal events. These garments are versatile and can be worn year-round. The following tips will help you learn ways to broaden your outfit and style options for every event of the warmer season.

How to Wear A Dress Shirt This Summer

1. Wear Light Colors

Pale and light colors reflect sunlight, keeping you cool. When dressing for a more formal occasion, wear a sand-colored suit with a pale dress shirt underneath and a tie. Pair the suit with brown shoes and pale socks or wear no-show socks to accomplish a sockless look. For a more casual look, wear one of the light-colored shirt options with shorts and your favorite sneakers.

2. Look for Breathable Materials

Stick to natural fabrics, such as cotton and linen, when picking out dress shirts. These materials dry quickly and are breathable, keeping you cool during the summer season. When dressing for a more formal occasion, choose a suit or sport coat that has a breathable and loose weave material. Add a light cotton tie to the suit to keep the outfit more formal. Pair a linen shirt with colored chinos and your favorite slip-on shoes for a more casual outfit option.

3. Try Different Sleeve Lengths

Wearing long unrolled sleeves is essential with all formal outfit options, especially when wearing a suit or a sport coat. You can roll your sleeves up in the warmer weather for a more casual outfit. The sleeve roll should never go above the elbow but should be rolled to the mid-forearm. Try a light shirt with a rolled sleeve paired with jogger pants and some sneakers to complete a casual outfit look. Put your favorite soft T-shirt underneath and leave the outer long-sleeved shirt unbuttoned to your level of choice.
