Shirts: Choosing the Right Color

Shirts: Choosing the Right Color

I received this question from a reader:

How do I choose a shirt color?

This is what I shared with them:

Choosing a shirt is not as simple as picking your favorite color; colors communicate different things to those around you. Let’s start with the basics. Crisp, clean white shirts convey the most power and authority. Blue shirts come next, and work well with almost any suit color. Other solid colors are appropriate for all but the most formal occasions, while stripes and checks work well in most day-to-day situations. “Warm” colors such as red or yellow are more casual than “cool” colors.
