Blue shirt with blue jeans

It seems always wrong to me or at least a labyrinthian puzzle far beyond my clothing wisdom, but I feel like I have seen it pulled off with dash and cunning.

Does skin tone matter? If extra non blue layers can make it work, what colors create a requirement for the minimal number of those layers? I want to know everything there is to know about blue on blue.

The funny thing about blue jeans (traditional blue denim jeans) is that in terms of color matching, they are not blue they are a neutral, and can be worn with any color, including blue.

Why do you think you couldn’t wear a blue shirt with blue jeans? As TPS says, denim is neutral. My personal preference is for men to wear dark navy blue. I suppose if you have especially dark skin, a lighter color might look better.

Well I do it all of the time and think it looks good on me. But I don’t have much fashion sense and women run from me in fear so there you go.

A blue oxford shirt always works with a pair of jeans. It’s classic. It’s timeless. And most importantly: it’s not fashion it’s STYLE.

I agree that jeans are neutral, but you still might want to avoid matching the blue of your shirt precisely with the blue of your jeans. I have some very dark jeans that would look stupid with a similarly navy colored shirt.

And, I think the consensus is against denim shirts in all situations, but especially when paired with denim jeans. Jean jackets seem to be their own separate entity, though, and their allowable ness seems to depend on wash, cut, wearer’s gender, and decade.

You know what is dashing and chic? A good quality white linen shirt and blue jeans. You can’t go wrong with that combo. Is there a particular reason you want to go blue on blue? Stores like Macy’s have personal consultants on staff to help shoppers, it’s free, you might want to check it out with a bona fide fashionista and see what their advice is for you.

blue shirts and denim jeans are always fine. (you’ll look like someone wearing a blue shirt and jeans.)

denim shirts and denim jeans are never fine. (you’ll look like a ranch hand)

blue shirts and blue non jeans are never fine. (you’ll look like a janitor)

Agreeing with vytae on all counts. I would, in general, recommend darker blue shirts with paler blue jeans and vice versa. Also, if you’re going to do the blue on blue thing, throw in a colored belt and some bright shoes to mix it up a little. You know, if you’re feeling sassy. Or, since winter is coming, why not layer? If you’ve got on medium toned blue jeans and a dark blue sweater, howsabout a pink or green collared shirt underneath to spice it up?

vytae is right. You can wear any shade of blue shirt with blue jeans it’s the shade of the jeans that matters. The more neutral/less saturated the shade of blue, the more shades of blue you can pull off in a matching shirt.
