    Keep the shirt white, undo a couple of buttons and concentrate on your other accessories I would.

    A pocket square and some bold coloured socks would make you stand out while maintaining a smart aesthetic.

    Another option is a silk scarf, such as a vintage one which I wore with my navy suit the other day. Some double-monk straps with no socks and you've got one slick look.

    Good ideas.

    Did wonder if plain white would look like just from work kind of shirt?

    I have some nice pocket squares.

    On the socks, I have loads of bright ones but should they match something Im wearing at all?

    Also Ill wear some brown shoes with coloured laces, maybe match the socks?

    Pops of colour with laces / socks / squares sound cool.

    You could match them, or mix them. Personally I find matching such things a bit cheesy. Far better to create complimentary or contrasting combos.

    I know you have said your not wearing a tie but for ideas when wearing a suit I always check suit supply, in my opinion their models are styled impeccably

    I actually have a similar problem. I want a shirt to go with a navy blazer and was wondering what shirts work best with a blazer. Should i get plain casual shirts? or should i wear a smart/more formal shirt with it?
