1. The Dress Shirt
The one that’s supposed to be worn with a suit and tie, and basically the most boring one, coming in different styles and fabrics this is the perfect item to be used during a formal occasion. It could also be dressed up with a slick tie or dressed down, worn opened and paired with a more casual blazer, the choices are endless but do keep in mind that this shirt could be the most expensive option out of this list.
2. The Denim Shirt

Easy to wear and to mix with other wardrobe essentials like jeans, chinos or trucker jackets the denim shirt is definitely one to keep in mind on your next shopping spree.
3. The Camouflage Shirt
A little bit edgier and trendier than the past two options, this sick piece will make you feel like an OG GI JOE, thanks to it’s 80’s throwback print. Easy to pair with jeans or chinos, the only thing you’ll need to add is a pair of lug boat loafers or combat boots to complete a fun and casual look. One thing to contemplate when wearing a camo print is that it could be a little overwhelming so do match it with plain and less flashier items.

Easier to wear than most people think, this showstopper could be worn not only at the beach but also during a club night out or a day out in town.

Preppy Ivy League looks never go out of style and this squared printed piece is the ultimate proof! Perfect when it comes to nailing the good boy look this shirt will also make wonders for your body frame thanks to the optical illusion the squared pattern delivers, making you look slimmer and a little bit leaner.
