From humble beginnings as a work shirt, to an all-around classic staple, the denim button-down is an essential for any man’s closet. When it comes to creating an outfit around it, it all comes down to what you’re comfortable with.
Here are some no-fail ways to add a denim shirt to your wardrobe.
With a Pair of Chino Pants
Cotton-blend, flat-front chino pants aren’t just for the office. Any color of chino pants work with a denim shirt and this is why a denim shirt is an essential item. Make your pants do double duty by pairing them with a denim shirt for the weekends. Roll up the sleeves and throw on a pair of casual kicks for an outfit that can transition from beers with the guys to grabbing a casual dinner on date night.
In a Business Casual Office
Got a busy Friday? No worries. Pair a tie and layer a sweater over your denim shirt with trousers for a work-appropriate outfit. Head into the weekend by ditching your tie, sweater and—dare we say—socks for hitting up dinner with friends.
Try Denim on Denim
Did you know “Canadian tuxedo” was coined when crooner Bing Crosby was denied access to a swanky Vancouver hotel for wearing all denim? History lessons aside, try pairing your chambray shirt with some jeans with a selvedge hem for a classic-modern vibe. Wear the shirt unbuttoned as a layering piece with a solid tee underneath. Opt for a pair of low-rise boots to complete the ensemble.
