Want the flattering shape of your fave shirt without the on-the-clock vibe? Enter: the denim shirt.

Like jeans for your chest, this timeless top gives the nice lines and effortless vibes that your go-to denim does for your booty to your top half.

And like jeans, this casual shirt can be an extremely versatile workhorse in your wardrobe—wear it buttoned all the way up like the shirt it is, open like a light jacket, tuck it in, leave it out… TBH, you would have to try really hard to make a wrong move with this one.

You can even wear this shirt with jeans! Just be sure the denim washes don’t match.

TO WATCH THE SUNSET

shirt | cardigan: Buck Mason | sneakers: Veja | socks: Bombas | pants: Polo Ralph Lauren

Styling tips: A denim shirt is picture-perfect for those ultra-flattering golden hour shots. Throw a shawl collar cardigan on top for when the sun dips and takes the heat with it. Slim cargos and sneakers keep the look laid-back. 

TO THE GAME

shirt | sneakers: Nike | hat: Saturdays NYC | shorts: Taylor Stitch

Styling tips: Get sporty—but not full-blown athletic—with it by adding cool sneakers, a dad hat, and shorts with just enough pocket space for your phone, wallet, keys, and a bag of peanuts.

TO RUN ERRANDS

So, dress up your pocket tee, drawstring shorts and slip-on sneaks with this cool-yet-casual shirt on top as an open layer.

Styling tips: Not sure where the day will take you? White denim feels a little more elevated than your traditional blue jeans, and your denim shirt feels more playful than the standard OCBD.

Sunnies and sneakers are ready-for-anything essentials.

shirt | joggers: Mack Weldon | striped shirt: Alex Mill | sandals: Birkenstock | watch: Timex

Styling tips: Ever thought of dressing up those joggers with a collar? When it comes to men’s denim shirt outfits, a casual, dressed-down look works just as well as something more pulled together.

Go with a denim shirt open over a striped top for a breezy, “Oh this? I just threw it on!” look.
