1. A Bold Tie - The Standard Accessory For Your Shirt Collar

Pairing a tie with your Extreme Cutaway Collar Shirt is a great way to add some extra visual interest to your outfit. Opt for a tie in a bold color or pattern that contrasts the shirt well. Doing so will help to create a cohesive and put-together look.

A shirt with a cutaway collar works great with both a small tie knot as well as a large tie knot, because of the tie space and spread collar (a wide spread between the two collar points). But let's be honest. A tie is a classic accessory to any shirt, whether it has a spread collar, classic collar, tab collar, mandarin collar, point collar or shirts with a button down collar. Basically, it looks great with all shirt collar styles!

Today there are many different versions of a tie knot. That's why we wrote an article about this not too long ago. Click here to read our article "The 10 Tie Knots All Fashion Savvy Men Must Know".

4. A Lapel Pin

Lapel pins are a great way to personalize your shirt and add some visual interest to your look. It can be a classic silver or gold lapel pin. But why not try a lapel pin that is a bit more out there, like a flower?

The overall thing is to choose a lapel pin that reflects your personal style or that has special meaning to you. After all, you need to be comfortable wearing it.

5. A Bold Belt

Wearing an interesting and smart belt is a great way to add some extra style to your outfit. It could for example be a black or brown leather belt with an interesting, yet stylish, belt buckle!

6. A Statement Watch

A watch is a great accessory and adds a finishing touch to any outfit, especially when you're wearing a smart and formal dress shirt for men.

Remember, you don't have to go out and buy a super flashy and expensive watch this second. Today there are many smart and stylish watches for men on the market, that don't cost a fortune. Sometimes you can even find a smart statement watch in one of the standard high street shops and brands! But remember to choose a watch that makes a statement and that you feel confident wearing.

Pro tips! You might want to consider the cuff style of your dress shirts when deciding what watch to wear.

7. Collar Pin

The last accessory we would like to talk about is actually hidden...

Meaning it's not an accessory that people can see. But it could play a big part in the overall appearance of your look (mainly the shirt). We are of course talking about... a collar pin/ collar clip!

Collar pins are small metal or plastic pins that are used to secure the collar of a shirt in place. They come in handy when you're wearing a shirt with a spread collar for example, as these types of collars tend to "gape" open slightly.

Why should you get yourself some collar pins? Because collar pins help to keep the shirt collar flat and in place, which gives your outfit a cleaner and more polished look. They are also great when wearing a tie and they are very easy to use! Just simply slide the pin through both sides of the collar and voila, your shirt collar looks crisp and your dress shirt is now ready to be worn!

A collar pin/collar clip works with most collar size and collar fabric. What it does is just give the collar stiffness and make sure the collar sits nicely.

We know that in this article we have mentioned quite a few different collar styles that can be seen on shirts. And therefore we thought it might be a good idea to finish this article with an overview of some of the standard ones.

Extreme Cutaway Collar

The extreme cutaway shirt collar is a very unique, smart exciting type of shirt collar. This type of collar has a very wide spread and the points of the collars are longer. Based on the cutaway collar, it creates modern look of sophistication sure to capture the eye of everyone in the room.

Classic Collar

A classic collar is the classic and universal straight collar. Nothing special, but is still great! No doubt most of us have at least one, or perhaps many of these in our wardrobe. It is a safe option and relatively versatile as it can be both dressed up and dressed down. A classic collar is the standard collar (standard collar height and collar stand) on many ready to wear shirts.

Button Down Collar

The button down collar is another common type of shirt collar and is typically seen on a men's dress shirt. The button down collar has buttonholes on the points of the collar that attach to the body of the shirt with collar buttons.

Point Collar

A point shirt collar is a shirt collar style that is fairly similar to the classic straight collar. But in this case, the point collar has points (as the name suggests) with a sharper and longer tip at the end of the collar.

Wing Collar / Wing-Tip Collar

The Wing-tip collar, similar to a wing collar, is a type of shirt collar that has a wide spread, shorter collar leaves and collar points that come to a sharp point. The wingtip collar is typically seen on tuxedo shirts and is most often worn with a tuxedo (or dinner jacket) and black tie.

Club Collar

The Club Collar has a similar size as a classic collar, but with rounded collar points. These types of shirt collars became popular among modern and fashionable men during the 1920s. Even though this type of collar is 'vintage', it can still be found in many shops and seen on the streets today.
