Hi, I'm Lori Ann Robinson and I am an image and fashion consultant. So how do you wear a dress shirt without a tie and wear a suit with it? Well, it is a very popular look, it's more casual, more business casual or if you're going out in the evening. You might not be wanting to wear a tie so this is a great idea to make sure that you've got a shirt with darker buttons. One of the worst things you can do is wear a dress shirt with very, very white buttons down the front and not wearing a tie with it because it just really draws attention to the buttons and it just doesn't look very nice. It just kind of looks like a bunch of little white bulls eyes down the front of your shirt. So look for a shirt with a darker button if you are going to wear the dress shirt without a tie. And sometimes the collars can be really, really stiff so if they are a little trick you can do is take out the collar stays and it will soften up that collar so the collar will lie down a little bit better and not get so stiff and kind of wing out on the sides of the jacket lapel. So you just want to make sure that it fits nicely within that jacket lapel and does not kind of wing out so if you need to take these out, but don't forget keep them and put them back in if you're going to wear a tie because it gives the shirt collar stability to have the tie. I'm Lori Ann Robinson, and thank you for joining me today.
