Dress up an oxford shirt up with a blazer (go unlined for spring/summer) and your favorite chinos in a complementary color. Browns and blues are a go-to combo, and can work for the office, casual weddings and dates. The best thing about white is that it can act as a neutral, so you can take a few risks with your color pairings.

Layer an oxford shirt over another essential, such as a striped T-shirt, to break up solid colors. Since the oxford is made with a slighter thicker material than a typical dress shirt, it’ll keep you warm when you need it while adding extra style points. All-star pieces naturally go together, so add your best pair of jeans and minimal sneakers for a little-effort look with maximum payoff.

Channel your inner surfer (everyone wants that inherent chill vibe, right?) with a grown-up curveball by pairing relaxed pants (linen is an ideal fabric for the beach) with your white oxford shirt. Undo a few buttons at the top, throw on a forever-cool denim jacket and lace-up a pair of bright sneakers, and you’ll be capturing the best mix of laid-back meets refined.

Play up the Ivy-league inspired look with your color choices.

Complete the look with a bona fide classic—leather or suede boat shoes.

One easy tip to remember is that when going for a typical casual outfit, you can replace a T-shirt with a white oxford shirt. Heading to the beach or pool wearing swim trunks?

Add all-purpose sneakers for those out of water journeys.
