I love discovering new things, whether it’s food, thrifting for a vinatge gem, or learning how to wear a garment a different way. I know I’m not the only one that gets goosebumps when I see a clean, crisp, and fresh, collared shirt. I love the way it hangs on the hanger straight out the dry cleaners. I love it when a man leaves a few of his top collared shirt buttons open, so you can see his chest hairs. Oh! and lastly, I love it when I wear a classic black pant suit with a bright white collared shirt, the outfit instantly spells out BOSS! Since a collared white shirt is a classic, it can never go out of style, but it has the power to create a new style.
Many fashion trends stem from classic looks and one trend that I have been seeing lately are the multiple ways to wear a collard shirt. Some trendsetters are starting to wear collard shirts backwards, off the shoulders, one sided, or tied in the front. Recently, I have found myself following this trend and I have found two cool ways to wear them.
The OFF THE SHOULDERS Look
All you have to do is figure out how many buttons are on your shirt and then button the bottom buttons and leave the top buttons undone. Pull your shirt off your shoulders and wear it to your liking. Lastly, tuck the collar inside the shirt so it’s not hanging out, but if you like it, wear it as you please.

The ONE SIDED SHOULDER Look
For this look, I leave the top buttons undone as well and pull the shirt over to a side that is most comfortable. Only the middle buttons of the shirt are buttoned. The bottom buttons are also undone because I tied the the ends of the shirts together.
