Selecting the perfect shirt: Note these points to avoid post-shopping hassles


Shirts are super stylish unisex apparel that can be paired with anything. However, it is important to choose shirts with the right fitting and patterns. Here are some tips to follow while selecting the perfect shirt that suits your personality.


Buying readymade clothes would be easier if you know your size and measurements. You should have a clear idea about the sizes-small, medium, large and extra-large. However, various brands may have different sizes even though they are all universally labelled as small, medium or large. So, it is wise to ensure that the shirts are of the right fitting before you leave the store.


The sizes of shirts may vary even if we are careful about the measurements and fitting. For example, a pleated shirt may not fit you even if you have chosen the ‘right’ size. Shirts look classy when they are not too tight or loose.


There are countless styles in the collar design like the spread collar and cutaways. Some people think that collars are not that significant. However, for some, the collar design reflects their personal style. The size and fitting of the collar could bring more definition to your facial features too. The shirt collar would have the perfect fit if you can easily slide a finger between the collar and the neck.


The texture and style of the fabric too is important while choosing the perfect shirt. Most people do not like shirts with denser fabric. Shirts in lighter fabrics are comfortable to wear. Similarly, it is comfortable to wear cotton shirts than polyester ones. It is better to avoid wearing non – iron shits even though you may think that they save time. However, such shirts would block air circulation to the body, making you uncomfortable.

Colour and print

Colourful shirts are classy and could reveal your personal style statement too. However, the colours that you choose should suit the occasion. Similarly, designs and patterns too are important. Do not compromise when it comes to the colours and patterns as it may affect your confidence.
