Spring is the perfect time for men to refresh their wardrobes with stylish new shirts. From new takes on classic white button-up shirts to trendy looks in prints and colors, men’s shirts with cool styles are all over the place this season. Turn to the following five looks for a contemporary, professional, and pulled-together appearance.
Traditional fits always look great with their timeless appeal. However, if you are looking for a new style this spring, why not explore various options? Some on-trend men's dress shirts such as slim-fit aren’t a major deviation from the button-up styles most men know and love, but they have a slightly more fitted and tailored appearance that is sleek and contemporary. You can find these tops in numerous colors and styles, including solid hues, prints, and stripes. Fabrics can also vary, from smooth Supima cotton to durable blends. An added bonus is that you can often find men’s slim-fit dress shirts in no-iron and easy-care versions, so you can look your best with minimal fuss. A more fitted shirt also looks fabulous when layered under a light men's sweater.
If you’re looking for a new men’s dress shirt that has more flair than a solid color but has all the polish you need to look professional at the office, a flattering tonal check can do the trick. These popular shirt patterns are done with traditional or slim fits and long- and short-sleeved versions. For spring, look for a check shirt in a fabric blend that provides optimal comfort, like a cotton mix that stays cool while looking stylish. Color options for multi-tone check shirts run the gamut from pale blues mixed with bright turquoise to touches of pink or lavender. Pastels are perfect for spring, and they can work well for the office, too.
Another type of dress shirt that can put a spring in your step this season is a classy-looking striped dress shirt. Striped shirts have an airy feel about them, which makes them ideal for spring. Breezy yet still professional, they’ll never let you down for work. Stripes also have the advantage of creating a unique style without a lot of extra effort since it’s a slightly different look than your solid-colored work shirt. Try one of these sensational striped shirt ideas for spring:
For guys who have a closet full of classics like white and pale blue shirts, a new contemporary color can really amp up their style this spring. Today’s dress shirts have tasteful variations from the classics that fit well with seasonal trends. For the best look, consider which personal skin tone, hair, and eye color fit best with a new dress shirt shade. Men with cool skin tones can pull off shades like blues, greens, and purples beautifully, while men with warmer skin tones will look great in shirts with shades of yellow, red, and orange. Of course, there’s no right or wrong color to wear. Try it out and if you love how it looks in the mirror, then it will be right for you. Great men’s dress shirt colors to try for spring include:
A lot of guys know women have their favorite LBD (Little Black Dress) to turn to for just about any go-to event that requires dressing up, but a guy can have his own go-to shirt as well. You might not think of black for spring, but this sleek, polished shade can have a brand-new and fresh feel that pairs beautifully with electric-colored, pastel, or bold ties for the season. A men’s black dress shirt is a versatile piece because it can be worn not only as a slick office-ready style but also as evening wear with a pair of denim men's jeans, a stylish sport coat or casual jacket. If you're still on the fence about getting a black shirt for spring, go for a dark grey — its flattering and overall appeal won’t leave you disappointed.
Looking professional yet on-trend isn’t difficult with the many styles available. Find a fresh new color, cut, or pattern, and it will translate to feeling cool and confident this spring.
