How to Wear It: Men's Shirting

When worn with flirty skirts and silk pants, shirts borrowed from the boys risk never being returned. Photographs by Mark Lim. Fashion Editor: Rae Boxer.

Now, help your man find his perfect shirt.


1. On Balance - If you go structured on top with a boxy jacket, pair it with something loose below, like a relaxed trouser.

2. Open Call - Leave a sleeveless shirt unbuttoned as a stand-in for a vest.

3. Loosen Up - Play with the proportions of a simple polo tee. Choose onet hat isn't form-fitting to add depth to your look. 

4. Arm's Length - A white button-down doesn't always have to be the main player. Try it as an accent piece underneath a shorter-sleeve dress (or top) that reveals the cuffs.
