A week in shirts

Shirts are a true wardrobe icon: timeless, ageless and always effortlessly stylish. Blogger Chloe Samwell-Smith – better known as @chloelovestoshop  – shows us how she puts a unique spin on shirt styling from Monday to Friday.


Monday: The Oversized Husband Shirt

“A shirt is my cheat item for smartening up a look. As someone who lives in jeans, adding a shirt is an easy way to feel a bit more pulled together and ready for any occasion. I love to wear mine with a few top buttons undone, layered jewellery and the sleeves rolled up.”



Tuesday: The Gingham Shirt

“My shirting style icon is Garance Doré  – she just epitomises effortless chic. One of my favourite shirt-styling tricks is the ‘half tuck’: tuck the front of your shirt in and leave the back to hang…”



Wednesday: The Resort Shirt

“This short-sleeved shirt in satin adds a more luxe feel to a look. Add heels and a leather jacket and head straight out for drinks in the evening.”



Thursday: The Printed Utility Shirt

“This is my favourite look from the whole week. The Philippa Print Utility Shirt is the perfect day-to-night option to style with black Nevada jeans and heels. I’m also a huge fan of the Nevada jeans, they are such a flattering cut and I love that Mint Velvet do three different leg lengths. Being able to find a pair of jeans that are right for my height is a good feeling!”



Friday: The Utility Shirt

“White denim with a modern wide-leg silhouette works so well with this khaki utility-style shirt, and adds the perfect amount of casualness to a Friday outfit.”
