What is a casual shirt?

A casual shirt is a versatile garment that can be worn in many ways and paired with lots of different casual trousers. Unlike formal shirts, they don’t need cufflinks or collar pins and are often worn with the sleeves rolled up. Casual shirts come in many styles such as denim shirts, plaid or checked and Oxford shirts. Short sleeve shirts are also considered casual in most cases.

How to wear a casual shirt

Casual shirts are one of the most versatile garments because they can be worn in many different ways. Instead of wearing your shirt fully buttoned up, wear it open like a lightweight jacket with your favourite t-shirt underneath. Men’s slim fit casual shirts are ideal for a smart-casual night out. Choose a patterned style to match with skinny jeans and loafers for a look that will work all year round.

Mens casual short sleeve shirts

Summer wouldn’t be complete without a short sleeve shirt in your seasonal wardrobe. Casual shirts for men with shorts sleeves pair great with more formal styles of men’s shorts such as chino shorts, however, they also work well with denim shorts and men’s linen shorts.

If the evening gets a little chilly, throw on a light pullover or cardigan around your neck to give your outfit a nautical vibe.

Mens casual long sleeve shirts

Great for cooler seasons, casual shirts with long sleeves are slightly smarter than their short sleeve counterpart. Roll up the sleeves on yours to give your look a more laid-back style.

Popular styles include denim shirts which pair well with chinos or, if you want to embrace a full trend, wear denim on denim with some contrasting coloured jeans.

Men’s casual checked shirts embody a cool, skater style. Keep the rest of your outfit plain to make your shirt the feature piece. If you fancy breaking the rules and embracing an individual style, mix clashing patterns such as checks and stripes for an outfit with wow factor.

How to wear a white shirt casually

White shirts aren’t just for the office. Choose a white shirt with pattern details for a casual alternative that still suits your style narrative. While crisp white shirts can feel corporate and stiff, printed white shirts have a fun edge that will suit more casual occasions and work well with other chilled garments.

Add a sporty vibe to your look with a bomber jacket and trainers for an outfit that will stand the test of time.

How long should a casual shirt be?

Unlike formal shirts, casual styles don’t need to be tucked in. Unless you specifically choose an oversized style, your shirt should fall to just past the top of your back pockets if you’re wearing a pair of jeans. The front should drop to the bottom of your fly.

Lengths of shirts may differ depending on the fit. Slim and skinny fit shirts are often shorter, so remember to factor this in when choosing a size.

When to tuck in a casual shirt

When it comes to casual fashion, there are no rules. If you want to show off your trousers and slim down your look, try doing a ‘French tuck’ with your shirt. This is where you tuck in the front part of your shirt and leave the back out in an effortless style.
