Gingham shirts are just excellent. It is a great way to pop some color in a classic way. You can find gingham shirts almost anywhere. However, when buying a shirt, make sure you get a slimmer fit if you need one. The right fit puts your style over the top. Good places to find slimmer fits are Express, jcp brand, Frank & Oak and Land’s End Canvas.

Where to wear? This is a solid weekday office style that goes directly to happy hour!
