The Meghan Markle effect has shirts top of the style agenda again. And, shirts don’t have to be for formal occasions – in fact, we prefer them relaxed! A shirt is the perfect wear now, wear forever item – they work just as well in warm weather (in really hot weather have them unbuttoned over a cami) and can be layered over when it cools. Here’s how we’re wearing them.
A little knot on the front of your shirt is the easiest way to give it an update for the new season. Make sure your knot reaches the top of your jeans, and try rolling the sleeves of your shirt for a late summer look.
A relaxed shirt shape paired with easy trousers is an effortless way to incorporate shirting style into your wardrobe. The key is to mix no fuss pieces (i.e. no patterns and muted colours) so the look is simple and sleek. Ankle boots polish it off nicely.
Tucking your shirt in can be an art form now, so we opt for the simple twist, roll and tuck which looks particularly good with cropped jeans. We love the animal trend at the moment, and this sheer leopard blouse lends itself perfectly to be tucked – tick off two trends at once!
Stripes are key for AW18 so investing in a shirt is a smart way to update your look. A striped shirt will look just as good paired with tonal jeans (and slightly untucked for a casual take) as it will paired with wide leg trousers or capris and worn to the office (but avoid any corporate clichés here to keep your stripes looking modern).
