The Refined Paisley Shirt You Can Wear Anywhere
The teardrop-like motif commonly known as paisley has been around for centuries but nothing about this print feels dated
Every year a new crop of paisley shirts is born and they’re embedded with that historical lineage but in fresh colors and handsome fits. These shirts are a sophisticated lightweight alternative for work, dinners, weddings, parties, or even unbuttoned at the beach.
When it comes to wearing a shirt of the "going-out" caliber, the knack isn't so much in following rules as it is in knowing how to style the shirt to your unique and awesome personality.
I like a medium-sized paisley pattern in a tonal color palette, a key for keeping patterns from overwhelming your look. I wear mine open at the collar with slim black jeans and a healthy dose of accessories, but this shirt would look just as amazing buttoned up under a slim black suit or leather jacket.
If you’ve ever wished your loud and breezy camp shirts were a touch more work-appropriate, allow me to introduce your new best friend: Bugatchi. This brand is loaded with two-way players that feel just as right with chinos and oxfords at the office as they do with jeans and sneakers on the weekends. Here are six fresh takes to button up with everything in your closet from Monday to Sunday.

These shirts are less formal than a solid long-sleeve button-down but dressier than a polo. They're a snap to put on in the morning and can be worn with everything from your best suit to your trusty denim jeans.
