Another great way to add cohesiveness to your look without relying on a tie is to opt for various shades of the same color. A navy sport coat with an aqua dress shirt adds dimension and more than a hint of sophistication.

Layer Your Look

There's nothing quite as chic as a perfectly layered look, and dress shirts are the ideal layering piece. Toss a crewneck or v-neck sweater over your dress shirt, pop the collar, cuff the sleeves, and congratulate yourself on mastering an effortless, preppy-inspired look.

Short Sleeved and Patterned

Short sleeves have never looked so stylish! Opt for a more fitted silhouette to keep it polished. If you really want to step it up, go for a printed shirt - just make sure to match one of the colors of the print to your trousers to tie the entire look together.
