Five years ago you wore your shirt tucked in. That is when stripes were fashionable and the checked shirt was still something cowboys paired with Stetson’s (or an item you wore when cutting up wood in a forest!). Then a few years ago, the shirt started to be worn slim fit and tucked in. Next it was paired with a tie. And now we have... no tie! So simple... so...minimalistic.. So... why did we not think of that before?
Everyone from Armani and Calvin Klein through to Dries Van Noten and Patrik Ervell demonstrated this trend for summer. Some designers offered the trend paired with a suit, others opted for a cardigan whilst a few went for the shirt alone. In all cases the top button of the shirt was firmly done up.
To work this look, it is imperative that you close the buttons of your shirt all the way. If wearing without a suit or cardigan, be sure to roll up your shirt sleeves to add interest. Hit two key summer trends at once, by pairing with brightly colored chino's.Wear with a turn up and a smile!
