At its simplest, this might be a dark blue V-neck, with a crisp white shirt and a straight black tie. If not, a pair of black slacks is next best. Conversely, a baggy, loose-fitting sweater will look equally unflattering. Reading this article, my confusion is clear that how and what to wear? Ravi Roshan Jaiswal says:
Yes, you may have seen some guys wearing them to the office. So we say skip the tie altogether with a black shirt. The blackout look—a black shirt with a black suit with black socks and black shoes—is okay, but a little predictable in our book. There are two basic approaches to figuring out what to wear with a black shirt.
The first is a monochromatic approach. The second approach is to use the black shirt to create contrast. You can see how these approaches look in the photo above.
That word that we used above: It means consisting of only one color. Using the fewest possible colors is a surefire way to put together a cohesive look. This is a key point that the average guy misses when getting dressed: For a more advanced move, try pairing a black shirt with a strong color, like red, in a muted saturation, like burgundy. The result is what you see above. Why is this an advanced move? It takes a good eye to find the right amount of saturation.
Too strong of a color and you end up with a jarring contrast with the black, like yellow with black. Too weak of a color and you end up with a muddled combination, like navy and black. How to strike the right balance? Nothing beats a mirror. Want to get the look? Choose the suits or shirt below to learn more. Sir, still not clear regarding the chinos and shoes.. Do we have an alternate choice than grey or black chinos?? Black shirt grey blazer!!
Sorry Gurjant, but the way we showed above is the way we recommend wearing a black shirt. Sure, a black shirt can have a button-down collar. If you like it, why not? Hello blacklapel, i have a black shirt and a light grey somewhat like silver color blazer, Can u please suggest me which color trousers should i wear and also on the shoes. Good call on the gray blazer. If you have the matching pair of pants to make a full suit, we suggest you wear those and nice black dress shoes.
If not, a pair of black slacks is next best. Again, stick with black shoes. Black and Burgundy is killer! I can imagine myself wearing that. Anything lighter than Burgundy you will look like a circus magician. Glad to hear it Gregory. You could use a black shirt with black trouser, charcoal trouser or dark wash jeans? What types of knitwear? Any recommendations for use with cardigans and sweaters. A light colored sweater atop a black shirt is going to look a bit loud because of the contrast of the color and the black.
A black sweater atop a black shirt is okay, but can kill the inherent cool of the black shirt by covering it up with more black. A good example of color matching would be wearing a solid gray sweater with a purple broad striped dress shirt. When it comes to matching a patterned sweater with a patterned dress shirt, our advice is to refrain from it altogether. The more patterns you add to your look, the more likely you are to create unappealing contrasts that will be hard for eyes to follow.
So, ideally, when layering a dress shirt with a sweater, stick with one pattern for the best aesthetic outcome. It can be a striped sweater with a solid shirt or a gingham dress shirt with a solid sweater, either way, you have a clean-and-simple winner. Sign up for style, relationship, and self-improvement advice for the sophisticated modern man. Your shirt collar points should always be tucked in below the sweater when wearing a crew neck sweater with a tight round neckline.
Most popular collar types including spread, semi-spread and point collars are all easily kept tucked in unless your sweater neck opening is abnormally large.
Of course, a button-down dress shirt collar like that of a classic Oxford will ensure maximum security against slip-ups. When pairing a dress shirt with a V-neck sweater, keep triangles in mind. Traditional collars like a point collar or semi-spread will be able to rest nicely against a V-neck sweater, requiring little effort to keep them tucked in.
But keep the tie on the slimmer side to avoid unsightly bulkiness beneath the sweater. Whether zipped or buttoned down, the deeper neck opening of a cardigan sweater offers the most flexibility. A nice navy gingham broadcloth , with or without a tie, works with almost any color sweater — more on colors and patterns later. Shawl sweaters allow you a lot of room to maneuver when choosing your dress shirt collar, however, we would advise you to stay away from cutaways as it will stand out too much against the broad, shawl neckline.
Adding a tie is even easier, just follow our color rules and keep it tucked underneath your sweater. With a suit, or just jeans and a nice blazer, a turtleneck sweater is a great way to create a whole new look. Remember to create contrast; a navy blue suit looks great with a light grey turtleneck, whereas a gray fresco windowpane suit will work beautifully with a deep burgundy sweater.
If you want to learn more about this masterful look, we wrote a whole story about wearing a turtleneck properly. Fall might be knocking at the door, but now that you know how to layer up with a sweater and dress shirt properly, you should have no fears.
