If you have a boy in the house, he’s likely going through boys’ shirts like there’s no tomorrow. There will be spills, mud puddles and his various activities to contend with. So, unless you want to camp out in the laundry room for the rest of your days (no thanks), it’s time to invest in a broad selection of boys’ tops and tees so you always have a clean style on hand. The next time you’re out shopping for boys’ clothing, bring along this handy checklist of top styles he’ll wear again and again.
Although this one might seem obvious, boys’ tees come in so many different styles and designs that it’s worth checking his closet’s inventory. For instance, he might have all the boys’ graphic tees in the world, but does he have some staple tees like crewnecks and V-necks in neutral hues that can be worn with everything? If not, stock up! You’ll thank us in the long run.

While back-to-school shopping, consider picking up some boys’ long-sleeve shirts for fall and winter. They look great with cargo pants, joggers and jeans, plus they layer nicely under his favorite hoodies and sweaters.
Boys’ Dress Shirts
There will be special occasions that require your guy to look his best, and that’s where a sophisticated selection of dress shirts comes in. A couple of boys’ button-down shirts are a wardrobe must-have. They tuck perfectly into khakis or dress pants, and you can always add a bow tie and blazer for an extra-dapper touch.
If you’re headed to a nice dinner or a family BBQ, boys’ polo shirts or short-sleeve button-ups are an excellent in-between choice. They’re dressier than a T-shirt, comfier than a dress shirt and can be paired with everything from jeans to chinos.
