No one wants to wear more than a sports vest and bermuda shorts in the sweltering Indian heat but when you have to look presentable, you have to go to the staple outfit for men - SHIRTS. Shirts can be a teeny bit cumbersome to wear but they are really fun if you just know how to select the right color, style and fit for shirts for men. In summers, you can opt for casual shirts which can double as formal shirts too. Casual shirts feature a curved hemline which looks good even if you don’t tuck the shirt in.
Here are a few features that you can use to your advantage when you wear a casual shirt.
Casual shirts mostly have a curved hemline, which has a few advantages over the normal hemline. The curve hemline exposes your legs on either side so that your leg lines are elongated. Curved hemline also gives a structure and visual interest as it visually shortens the length of the shirt. Shirts with a curved hemline are a bit more easily manageable and versatile because you can either tuck it in or leave it untucked.
While formal shirts have a bit of a sheen due to different types of fabric used in their making, casual shirts are mostly made of cotton. Cotton is a superior fabric as it is more breathable than satin or silk and also provides great absorption in summers. Cotton as a fabric is also naturally hypoallergenic and will not react badly with sensitive skin, so you don’t have to worry about having any rashes or allergy due to sweat in summers.
When you talk about Casual Shirts, you have a wide variety of both colors and prints that the shirts are available in. This summer, colors like Beige, Light Pink, Sky Blue, Lavender Purple, White and Teal are summer colours which look cool in summers. Prints like Floral designs, beach motifs, micro prints and polka dots are evergreen and look great if you want more variety than just solid colors. Either way, you must have both the types for variety.
Casual shirts are very adaptable to the kind of trousers you are wearing and they don’t need to be limited to just jeans. Casual shirts go great with Chinos and give a vibrant look to your overall outfit. Chinos are available in various solid colors whereas jeans and formal pants are quite limited in color options. Casual shirts can also be paired up with formal trousers when you tuck them in.
