DRESS SHIRTS FOR MEN TRENDS
Men’s dress shirts have come a long way from the standard blacks and whites of past years. Current trends for 2010 include bright pastels, loud patterns and odd colors, and it’s important to keep up with current trends so that you end up looking pulled together and handsome rather than outdated and plain. Men’s dress shirts should always be chosen for quality and fit before anything, but after that, focus on these great 2010 trends.
Pastels have long been considered women’s colors, and though men’s dress shirts have been made in these colors for a while, 2010 is really the year for these colors to skyrocket. For spring especially, pastels are perfect for the modern man, including pastel pinks and purples. Feminine colors against masculine features are a look that women adore and have made it known in 2010.
Patterns used to be quite subdued and less obvious than recently. 2010 marks the beginning of the age of loud patterns for men’s dress shirts. Try a chunky striped shirt with alternating pastels and loud colors for a nice look. Plaids are bigger and brighter as well, and even the paisley pattern is coming back in 2010. Make sure the quality is good, however – patterns with seams that don’t match and are off-alignment are tacky and unattractive.
Loud colors, bright blues, greens and even oranges, are perfect for the 2010 summer season. Showing off a tan against bright colors like these is a hugely popular trend for 2010, and one that may carry on for some time. Matching the dressiness of the shirt with a fun color helps you find a great middle ground between dressy and fun.
