Versatility in Staples

If you wear a dress shirt daily, you could probably use a refresher course on the different ways you can make your favorite work shirt work for you. Once you’ve found the perfect shirt, you’ll want to wear it again…and again…and again! A few edits can give you more mileage out of your best dress shirts. We’ve paired one dress shirt with different style options to show you just how effortlessly versatile staples can take you from a work-ready day look to a night out.

1. Keep it casual at work

At the office, Rob can afford to keep it laid-back on most days, so we paired his Odrin dress shirt with a pair of our perfect fit chinos. Leaving this easy-wearing shirt untucked keeps his look cool, comfortable and casual – the perfect day look for the modern Odrin man.

Style Tip: A durable pair of chinos is a wardrobe must have – they match easily with various wardrobe basics, and are easy to dress up or down.

2. Transform from casual to boardroom

Need to make a quick change to step up your casual look? We helped Rob upgrade his look for the boardroom by tucking his dress shirt into perfect fit chinos, and brought the look together with an Odrin made-to-measure blazer. Finish the look with subtle accessories, like a classic leather watch and belt (tie optional).

Visit our 44 Stanley showroom to feel our luxurious fabric options and get measured for your perfect fit blazer, chinos and more.

Style Tip: Carry your blazer on a hanger to the office or leave it in a suit bag in the car to make quick style upgrades when necessary.

3. Go out for drinks after work in style

Go from the boardroom to the bar for after-work drinks by making one quick change. Simply swap out smarter chinos for a pair of dark jeans to seamlessly transition your look from day to night. Rob wears the same Odrin dress shirt tucked in, with a pair of dark jeans and a blazer.

Style Tip: Your dress shirt shouldn’t be too much of anything – baggy or tight, long or short. A good rule of thumb is a sweet spot somewhere right in the middle: A tailored fit that’s comfortable to move in freely. Not sure what ‘perfect’ looks like?
