Fashion: Lumberjack Shirts

The latest lumberjack shirt fad is caused by Dolce & Gabbana and Tommy Hilfiger showcasing it on their catwalks during these cold, cold times.  Labeled a great investment the lumberjack shirt trend is expected to continue till the Spring/Summer of 2011.

Once the staple of big woodsmen the current lumberjack shirts had never been so fashionable.  Today it is worn with a shirt underneath,comes in bold colors, has two pockets instead of the usual four, its sleeves are meant to be rolled up and now comes in cotton as well as wool.

Guidelines in wearing the lumberjack shirt for the ladies and gents are the same:

1. Fit – the golden rule in buying clothes.  Not fit till you feel ill.  Just choose appropriately a size that shows the curves meant to be shown.
2. Size of plaids – the bigger the squares of a lumberjack shirt the bigger one would look.
3. Unusual colors - make it look different from the traditional lumberjack shirt.
4. Pair it – put solid colors as accessories.  Solid colors that are reflected by the colors in the lumberjack shirt so that the focus is on the shirt and not on the chaos brought about by different colors.
