The ticket to going from ‘meh’ to ‘hot-damn’ is a paneled shirt. We might just have oversimplified it but then we know a good trend when we see it.
There are only so few ways you can style a casual shirt when you’re heading out on the weekend or have a special occasion to turn up the heat for. While a well-fitted shirt in the right color and print will do the trick most times, a shirt with paneled detailing is a new staple you might just have to add to your wardrobe.
Typically, a casual shirt which is divided into two halves either by color or print.
For example: visualize a shirt mustard yellow with the bottom half of the shirt being navy blue. (Nice, right?)
The colors don’t necessarily have to be contrasting as described above, they can seamlessly blend into each other like from white to powder blue, black to grey, blue to dark grey, olive to brown, solid to print — it’s just an endless array of combinations so that you aren’t limited. Whatever tickles your fashion bone, there is something for you.
The versatility of the paneled detailing is what we like most about it. Our stylists say that you can wear a paneled-detail shirt with slim fit formal pants and oxfords for a formal occasion while at the same time a bold paneled shirt can be paired with your favorite pair of denims or joggers and your coolest sneakers and just like that you’re set for the weekend.
Give your printed shirts a break next weekend and grab some paneled shirts to make eyes-pop. Now who doesn’t want that.
