Trend How-To: The Classic Shirt

In my opinion, every woman should have an elegant, classic shirt as a staple in their wardrobes.

Beautiful in winter underneath a tailored blazer and a pair of jeans, elegant with a pencil skirt and pumps for the office, and sexy when a little undone and paired with a mini skirt. The variations are simply endless, but needless to say as I have grown older, the amount of classic shirts in my closet as blown out to cover a huge array of colours.

The beautiful thing about staple pieces is that they don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Although, if you want a quality silk blend there are many perfect options on the market (think Equipment).

    The older I get the less appropriate it is to wear T-shirts 🙁 Luckily a collared shirt works too!

    Luv a classic shirt, although I prefer the modern take – slightly oversized & long, in pastels & bold colours. They look fantastic when paired with a rad pair of leggings…mmm, Black Milk leggings = addicted 😛

    Agreed, slightly oversized shirts are the most versatile as they can be worn loose & tucked in too. Of course also have fitted blouses too!
