A solid wardrobe consists of at least a handful of patterns. Your very first button up shirt was probably a solid white, followed by a French blue, and then maybe a gingham number…but have you checked out checks? A check shirt gives a quiet but impactful dose of visual interest, and never goes out of style.

Wear it well: Add some fun to your weekday work look by skipping the socks and flashing that ankle.
