If you didn’t catch my last post on spring summer 2011’s menswear trends then you won’t be aware that the american gigolo inspired 1970’s look is hot for this season. One of the most striking differences is the trend to undo more buttons on your shirt, some of the looks on the runway had them unbuttoned to the naval. However, you’ve probably noticed up until now the trend seemed to have been doing your shirt all the way up including the top button. Oh how things are about to change as the weather get’s warmer now is the time to leave a little bit more of that chest on show. It’s time for men to get sexy again or at least that’s what this season’s trend is going for. But where does that leave us with age old chestnut of how many buttons do you leave undone on your shirt?
Generally, you’d find the answer to be no more than two if you want to be on the safe side. But with trends going from all to almost nothing it can be a little confusing for the average joe to follow. The ultimate thing to remember is to undo as many buttons as you feel comfortable doing. If you feel uncomfortable in anything you’re wearing it is going to come across in your overall demeanour which is going to have the complete opposite effect to your style.
Anyway I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
How many buttons do you undo/do you like to see undone on a shirt?
