Get onboard the band collar band wagon
Okay, now that that’s out of the way. Moving on! Like to, let’s say, the band collar shirt! Also known as a mandarin or grandad collar, band collars are innately easier and neater than your standard dress collar.

Their simple, stiff collar adds a polished, minimalist feel that can make any of your go-to outfits feel more modern.
