The All Important White Dress Shirt

An Important Wardrobe Staple, The White Dress Shirt

A white dress shirt is a time­less clas­sic, found in the clos­ets of many. It is by far, the most reli­able and eas­i­est of choic­es to make when stuck with too many options.

The col­or is bor­ing, but the for­mu­la is test­ed and works so well.

The perfect number.

A man should have at least one white dress shirt in his clos­et. It will become a sta­ple for his wardrobe, much like a pair of jeans. This is because it match­es any col­or suit, in any sea­son, at any event. Match­ing a suit and tie to a white shirt is a breeze, sav­ing time and mon­ey. Some­times, we just have more press­ing con­cerns.

Also, you can be bold with the tie since it’s now the cen­ter­piece, the white con­trast of your dress shirt serv­ing as a blank can­vas. If you’re not wear­ing a suit, you can wear a white dress shirt with just about any­thing. It goes well with a pair of jeans and a blaz­er. Maybe with chino’s for a friend’s sum­mer par­ty or at your favorite bar. Or at the White House.

Also, if you want to avoid the sheer, see through look and not wear a white under­shirt, then look for some­thing with a stronger weave. Twill or oxford weaves work well.
