How to Choose the Best Mens Collar Styles for Your Face Shape

Most men wear a standard traditional point or button down collar dress shirt, either out of habit or because stores do not offer other choices. The problem is that these collars may not flatter the shape of your face. Here is a simple guide to help you decide which collar style looks best on you. Round Face You have full cheeks with a rounded jaw line. Narrow point collars help to thin and elongate a round face.

The best collar styles for you have straight points with a traditional or narrow spread. Stick to a traditional point for versatility, button down and hidden button down for a sportier look, narrow point for a fashion look and tab collar for a formal, dressy look. Best Collars: Standard Point, Button Down,Narrow Point, Hidden Button Down, and Tab Collar Avoid spread collars; they make your face appear wider and fuller. Worst Collars: Medium Spread, Wide Spread, and Varsity Spread Square Face You have a square jaw line, which gives your face a broad, square, angular appearance.

Square faces look best wearing traditional point collar shirts for versatility, narrow point collars for a fashion look, button down and hidden button down for a sporty look and tab collar shirts for a formal look. Best Collars: Standard Point, Button Down, Narrow Point, Hidden Button Down, and Tab Collar Avoid spread collars; they make your face appear wider and fuller. Worst Collars: Medium Spread, Wide Spread, and Varsity Spread Triangular or Diamond Face You have pronounced cheekbones and a narrow, pointed chin, which gives your face a "diamond shape." To make your jaw line appear wider, choose shirts with a medium spread to wide spread collar. Best Collars: Medium Spread, Wide Spread, and Varsity Spread Avoid narrow spread collars, including button down collars; they make your jaw line appear weak. Worst Collars: Button Down, Narrow Point, Hidden Button Down, and Tab Collar Oblong or Rectangular Face Oblong faces tend to appear long with a u-shaped jaw line.

You need collars with a wider spread to give your face the appearance of fullness. Choose medium spread collars for everyday and wide spread collars for a formal look. Best Collars: Medium Spread, Wide Spread, and Varsity Spread Avoid narrow spread collars, including button down, hidden button down and tab collars; they make your face appear long and narrow. Worst Collars: Button Down, Narrow Point, Hidden Button Down, and Tab Collar Oval Face You are fortunate because you can wear any collar style. Enjoy wearing traditional collars for an everyday look, button down collar shirts for a sportier casual look, tab collars for a neat, dapper appearance, or wide spread collars for a formal look.
