"Every man owns a couple of white or blue Oxford shirts.". Guilty of this statement? Then it's time to introduce a new colour to your closet — grey is excellent for many occasions, and can make you look like a million bucks when styled right.

 Not sure how to style a grey shirt? We're here to help. You'd be surprised at how easy it is to make a grey shirt look good.

01. Apply the Right Contrast

Look effortlessly Italianesque when you pair your grey shirt with the right colours. A good way to start would be to pair your warm-grey shirt with a sports jacket and trousers in warm hues, such as brown and beige; and your cool-grey shirt with cooler hues (e.g. a navy blazer).


02. Don't Dismiss Denim

When in doubt, denim is always the answer. Notice how suave Beckham looks in this grey button-down collar shirt + black denim pairing. You can now steal his wardrobe and rock a light grey oxford shirt with a pair of black/navy denim jeans. Too casual? Simply throw on a casual knit blazer and you'd be instantly ready to meet an important client.


03. From Smart to Casual

Who says you can't look polished in casuals? Simply pair your patterned, or plain grey shirt with light-colured trousers, and pop-open your top two buttons for a summer-ready look.

The ultimate sartorial combo: team a half-placket mid grey shirt with an olive linen overshirt for a pairing that hits all the right notes.
