“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” — Rachel Zoe
The debonair man knows that the perfect shirt is just as important to make him look classy and polished as the well-tailored suit. It is the foundation of his entire look, and the first thing he puts on – and thus it stands to reason that having the perfect dress shirt for any occasion is your first step to effortless sophistication.
When it comes to finding the perfect shirt for the occasion, you do not need to spend hundreds and own two dozen dress shirts to find the perfect one.
Here are a few essentials that can be combined with a number of different styles and are a staple of any suave man’s wardrobe:
The Classic White Dress Shirt
There is probably no occasion where a white shirt does not work.
This is one item of your wardrobe that you can wear to any occasion without looking overdressed or underdressed. Dress it up with a suit and tie for black-tie events, or dress down with jeans for more casual events like barbeques. As long as your classic white dress shirt is clean and fits well, you can never go wrong with one.

All Shades of Blue
Another timeless classic, the blue shirt goes well with everything. Pair it with a gray suit for a particularly debonair look for days when the white shirt just doesn’t do the trick. The charm of a blue shirt – no matter what shade – is that is works with almost any color, from reds to navy blues and even dark greens.

The Striped Shirt
Combine the blue and the white for another timeless look – the stripes. Remember, the thicker the stripe, the less-formal the shirt gets. For formal looks, you want to go the thin-stripe or Bengal stripe way. These can work equally well under sweaters as with a suit.
The Checked Shirt
Another staple for your wardrobe, the checked shirt can be dressed up or dressed down according to the occasion. Like the striped, this kind of shirt too gets less formal, the bigger the print gets.
When mixing two different prints, remember that the size of both prints is similar. However, when mixing two articles of clothing with the same print on them, one should be as different in size as possible.
The French Cuff Dress Shirt
For those extra formal events, all men should have at least one French Cuff Dress Shirt. This is one of the most formal of dress shirts and a well-tailored, clean and crisp white shirt will automatically make you one of the best-dressed men in the room.
