How to Dress Up a Short Sleeve Shirt

Summer time makes most people think of barbecues, warm nights and cool treats. For some, it also evokes panic. How can I stay comfortable and still dress to impress? Most men believe that there is a large gulf between casual and dress. We're going to show you how to wear ENRO's short sleeve performance shirts. The Best Performing Shirt In The World™ that is easy to wear and easier to take care of.

IF THE SHIRT FITS

The most important thing to remember when dressing up a short sleeve shirt is the fit. The sleeves and torso should be fitted without being tight or baggy. Too tight can make you appear to have gained a few pounds and didn't notice, and it doesn't matter what size you are. Too loose and you look like you have raided your grandfather's closet. Having a proper fitting short sleeve shirt looks more put together than an ill fitting long sleeve. Your sleeves should be loose enough around the upper arm to allow free movement without extra slack. The shirt should lay close to the torso without pinching or bunching. The buttons down the front should lay flat and have no gaps.

PAY ATTENTION TO PATTERN

Patterns can add dimension to your look, however, they can also distract from it. If you are wanting to dress up your short sleeve look, you'll want to stick to more subtle or smaller patterns. Sorry, your Hawaiian luau shirt just won't work here. A great tonal option is this short sleeve stripe. The soft blue on white pattern is visually interesting without being loud or screaming hula dance.

FRAMING YOUR FACE

One of the most important things to remember when dressing up a short sleeve shirt is the collar. Our short sleeve come in button down collar. To make a short sleeve a little dressier, pairing it with a knit tie can do the trick. As with the fit on the arms and torso, you do not want your collar too tight or too loose. A few fingers between the collar and the neck is a good way to ensure proper fit.

JACKETS ARE INVALUABLE

A short sleeved shirt can be instantly elevated by donning a sport coat or jacket. Perfect for warm days, you can have a dressier look with the convenience of less material. Pairing your shirt with a complimenting tone jacket will keep the look fresh and modern. For example, our casual check shirt has both blue, green, yellow and a hint of pink in the pattern. Pairing this shirt with a jacket of similar color will look both professional and put together.

DON'T LET THERE BE A WRINKLE IN YOUR PLANS

Having a shirt that looks freshly pressed is essential in dressing up a short sleeved look. Nothing says “I don't care” more than a wrinkly shirt. Wrinkles can be distracting and distort the pattern you so carefully chose earlier. With our ENRO shirts, ironing is a thing of the past so you can rest assured that your shirt will look great right out of the dryer.Dressing up a short sleeve shirt can seem intimidating, however, these simple rules for wearing one will give you the confident and put together look that you want in your appearance. The short sleeved shirt is a vital part of any man's complete summer wardrobe.
