By Anubha Das

Updated - March 24, 2022 3 min read

Shirts are like no-brainers of a man's wardrobe essentials, with styles they tend to gravitate to. But sometimes, your penchant for pinstripes doesn't quite translate to a romantic date evening or a sunny holiday in South India. Enter the guide–our simple checklist that will cover you for every occasion.


So, whether you're heading to a wedding or sipping cocktails by the poolside, these are some key shirt styles you'll always search for.


1. Linen Shirt

With chinos or boat shorts, casual, breezy, and perfect for the Indian summer, light soft pastel linen will always be a winner.

2. Classic OCBD

Whether you're still living the Zoom life or going for an open-plan IRL, smart workwear like this Oxford-cloth button-down shirt (OCBD) says you don't just come to work; you look good as well.

3. Denim Shirts

A denim shirt owes its popularity to Hollywood; specifically cowboys in films dressed in blue-hued garments. Try this laid-back version from Peter England, made with pure cotton denim and a functional patch pocket. Heehaw!

4. Overshirts

Sometimes, Mother Nature can confuse us with what to wear. The weather might be too warm for a coat and too cold for a t-shirt. Luckily, we have overshirts. They can be perfect light jackets or layers for colder days. It's wearing two outfits in one.

5. Printed Shirts

A full-sleeve floral or a Cuban collar Ikat, a nice printed shirt in your 'drobe can take care of the style statement on days you care too little to be gussied up.

6. Short Sleeve Shirts

The classic short-sleeve shirt can be one of the most versatile button-ups in your wardrobe. Wear them untucked with shorts or chinos for a perfect vacation.

7. Cuban Collar Shirts

Pull out your cigars and soak in a Cuban collar shirt in the sun. With short sleeves and an open collar, these shirts are an essential summer staple that make you look and feel good.

8. Dress Shirts

Nothing spells low effort like slinging a sports coat over your dress shirt for a date night or a dinner party. This shirt features a spread collar, and thanks to the cotton and elastane blend, it wicks moisture and resists wrinkles, guaranteeing you feel as good as you look.

9. Polo T-Shirts

We can't stop (and won't stop) raving about this slim-shaped Puma polo t-shirt, incorporating a breathable fabric to wear to the golf course or the gym. A true athleisure staple.

10. Flannel Shirts

Cool, casual, and chequered is a spiffy style statement. The utility of flannel shirts makes them a must-have for your closet. These shirts give layers and pack in some warmth.

Tip: For a lumberjack look, pair the flannel shirt with ripped denim jeans, and boots.
