JOE loves this Gagliardi denim shirt
Denim is always a key trend and a wardrobe staple, but you don't have to limit yourself to wearing it just as jeans
We've been getting the tail end of summer recently, but there's a chill in the air and yellow leaves on the trees, so we know it's time to start beefing up our Autumn/Winter wardrobe.
That means we want to get our hands on colours that draw from that autumnal pallet like blue, grey and mustard, which Gagliardi have chosen to include in their Autumn /Winter collection for this year, and one of our favourite pieces is this denim shirt.
Denim on denim is a trend that looks like it's going to be around for a while, and if you do it right, you'll look as cool as Ryan Gosling, or the ever-stylish David Beckham instead of a cowboy or a member of Bwitched. The key is in getting a contrast between the colours of denim that you're wearing, which is why the shade of this shirt will allow you to wear it with black or lighter blue tones. You can also match the denim tones for the more adventurous out there, but remember that it's your look and your style, so if you feel confident in it, it will work for you.
This shirt is available from Arnotts for €85, and you can go fancy with a bow tie like JOE's Mike Sheridan above, or go more relaxed and have an open collar.
Bow ties are also working their way in to every day rotation, and can give you that touch of individuality when everyone else is wearing a regular tie. While it has often been seen as something very formal, it is increasingly becoming a great way to smarten up a more casual look. Here, the colours pair well, as you don't need to go too loud on the bow tie, simply wearing it is statement enough.
