One Shirt — Worn Three Ways 

One Shirt — Worn Three Ways 

Building a wardrobe you’re proud of means having a collection of clothing that you can wear in a variety of ways. Sure, we all have single-purpose clothes or speciality items that complete a look or that were purchased for a specific reason, but generally speaking we’re big fans of multipurpose garments. 

Looking to add something to your closet like that? Here’s how it’s done.

The Shirt

The shirt is this beautiful Haupt sport shirt with a small patterned allover floral print in blues and browns. Haupt has been a fan favorite in recent years for their fresh outlook on shirting style as well and for creating some of the most comfortable fabrics around. 

The shirt is cut with a modern fit and made with soft, breathable fabric that is perfect for summer. Wear it with jeans (like these Alberto’s in stone khaki) and a casual shoe for a simple to wear and nicely styled outfit for casual days at work or lunch with a friend.

Smart Casual

Give the shirt a little boost in style-factor by pairing it with an easy to wear sport coat — like this one from Michael Kors — and a tie. The trick to picking a tie to wear with a patterned shirt like this is to choose one with a bold pattern like thick stripes. The stripes add visual interest without conflicting with the overall look.

This Michael Kors sport coat is a great summer garment. It is extremely breathable and unlined, giving you a great silhouette. 

Patterns on Patterns

Be a little bold and adventurous with a look like this — a strong plaid sport coat and an allover print sport shirt. This casual look is sure to turn heads (in a good way)! 

Remember the tip above about wearing a tie with this shirt? The same rule applies here. Choose a bold pattern that uses the same color family as the shirt. The trick is to create a visual that keeps the eye interested but not distracted.
