How to Wear an Autumnal Shirt

Written by Kimberley | 15/09/2016




With the winter months just around the corner, and a classic shirt an autumn favorite, now is the time to re-stock your wardrobe with the latest designer shirts. But what styles should you wear when and how should you wear them?

There are three types of shirts when it comes to autumn wear, the classic oxford, the flannel and the checked, all offering different pros.


Checked Shirts

The classic checked is a versatile wardrobe staple and can be worn for both casual and formal occasions. A pro tip to keep in mind is that the smaller the check, the smarter that shirt. If you’re wanting a casual look try this Carhartt long sleeved Tartum shirt in scarlet red, grey, white and black. Pair it with these Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren Skinny Jeans and relaxed trainer like these Y3 Stan Zip trainers in white. For a more formal look try switching the skinny jeans for chinos, a more formal shoes such as a brogue and a formal jacket such as a blazer. You’ll find a detailed guide on how to style a check shirt in a recent blog post.

Flannel Shirts

Flannel shirts are a great way to stay warm during the colder winter months because of the flannel material they are made of. This Edwin long sleeved check flannel shirt in green has a woven tartan designer in green, navy and black. This shirt looks great with the Levi’s Extreme skinny jeans and the Android Homme Omega Low Trainers and for that added style factor add a PS by Paul Smith Black Harrington jacket.

Oxford Shirts

The classic preppy style of the Oxford shirt is also a great look during autumn. Oxford shirts are made from a slightly thicker material than a normal and so offer that little bit of extra added warmth. A perfect choice for a great Oxford styled shirt is this Ralph Lauren slim fit shirt in navy. Featuring a woven check design in green, navy, yellow and red all colours perfectly suited to the season. Pair them with these Replay Jondrill Skinny Jeans and a classic white sneaker like these Adidas original Superstar trainers.

If you like a more daring print, try this Pretty Green Stretford Paisley Shirt and for a more formal look pair it with these Aquascutum Colt Navy Chinos and a black leather brogue like these Ted Baker Oakk.

There are plenty more looks to choose from our huge range online but the key things to keep in mind are:

  1. The smaller the check the smarter the shirt.
  2. Don’t be afraid to accessories with jackets.
  3. Always pair with a good fitting trousers and classic trainer or shoe.
