How to wear dress shirts more casually

5 ways by Marcel Floruss

In the past few years, we’ve seen a movement away from the very strict suit, tie, shirt combination, and the modern man’s daily uniform has become a lot more casual and unique to his own style. That does not mean that we can’t still wear the dress shirts we love so much and just give them a little bit more of a casual touch and we used to.  I want to show you five different shirts, styled without a tie, ready for a myriad of occasions.

Ditch the tie

The easiest thing to do is to simply ditch the tie and unbutton a couple of the top buttons. Here we have a gorgeous, classic light blue OLYMP No. Six shirt under a navy suit, styled exactly that way, and rounded out with a pair of white sneakers.


Linen shirt

 Next up a linen shirt… A great way to dress it down is untucking it, and wearing it with a blazer and raw denim jeans, rather than a full suit.

Choose a structured sweater

Here you can see another way to easily style a dress shirt more relaxed. Keep the shirt tucked in, throw a sweater up top, unbutton the cuffs and push up the sleeves a bit, a pair of dark jeans work just as well here.

Untuck your shirt

An easy solution to the challenge is simply untucking the shirt, rolling up the sleeves, but maybe adding a pair of white jeans to make the whole look a little bit more interesting.


Achromatic look

Last but not least, we have an achromatic look, combining a grey cardigan and a darker grey No. Six shirt, both from OLYMP, with a pair of black jeans and Chelsea boots. A cardigan, especially a slim fitting blazer cardigan like this, can be another great way to tone things down, while still working with the classiness of the dress shirt.
