Many men opt for informal or casual shirts when dressing on a daily basis. However, it is often difficult to distinguish a dress shirt from a casual one and, therefore, it is difficult to create a coherent casual look. Therefore, we teach you to differentiate the types of shirts and we explain where and how to wear them.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES A DRESS SHIRT FROM A CASUAL SHIRT?

The main difference between a dress shirt and a casual or sport shirt lies in its collar.

What does this mean?

If the collar of the shirt is wide, open and to the sides, it is a formal or dress shirt . Most of the time, this means that you can wear it with a tie, hence it does not have buttons. If, on the other hand, the collar is more closed and has buttons , you can wear it a little more unbuttoned and therefore it will offer you the possibility of wearing a more informal look.

The second difference is also clear at first glance: the print . Generally, more formal or dress shirts have more sober prints and colors such as white, light blue or subtle prints such as thin vertical stripes. For their part, casual shirts usually have larger prints and more pigmented colors, which take away from the seriousness of the outfit.

You can also look at the type of fabric of the shirt : generally, more formal shirts are made of cotton or linen . Other characteristics that could help you differentiate the types of shirts are the cuffs: if they are tight or allow the use of cufflinks, then they are formal shirts .

IN WHAT SITUATIONS SHOULD YOU WEAR IT?

Many men wonder in which situations it is more advisable to wear a formal shirt or a sport shirt. There are style rules to determine when you should wear each type of shirt , but it is best that you decide based on the type of event you are going to attend, or the etiquette required of you at all times.

  • Does your company require a formal dress code? Use shirts in neutral tones and wide collars, which you can combine with a jacket and tie, if necessary. A classic example is this white herringbone double cuff dress shirt.
  • Are you going to a casual dinner? Use shirts with prints, which will give you a relaxed and jovial look, like the Silbon wide light blue stripe sport shirt.

SHIRT INSIDE OR OUTSIDE?

This seems like the million-dollar question, but it's simpler than it seems. The most formal shirts are worn tucked in . Therefore, it is easier to distinguish it from a casual or sports shirt . Although the latter are shorter, on some occasions you can also wear them tucked in to reduce their joviality and obtain a more serious look, without losing comfort.

HOW TO COMBINE A CASUAL SHIRT

It may seem complicated to combine a casual shirt, mainly because of the prints. However, you have multiple options depending on personal style and occasion.

You can combine them, for example, with jeans or with casual pants and loafers.
