I have had this Zara striped shirt since last year and I can’t say I’ve worn it enough and I don’t why, it’s the perfect thrown on shirt for the weekend and the relaxed fit just looks great for stepping into a busy city on a Saturday…naturally to do more shopping.
I’ve worn the shirt a few times with my jeans and switched my shoes around with the look opting for pink mules, western cut out boots and white loafers. But changing my shoes every time I wear the shirt is probably not enough and that’s why I’ve become bored of the shirt.
I dug it out recently during a wardrobe detox and decided to create a more high society look with the shirt by teaming it with my zip through white skirt from New Look. I rolled the shirt sleeves up and opened the collar up and slipped on my Vivienne Westwood necklace to give this a true British style stamp.
The look works for the office on a summers day and for many other events where you may have to be on the rush and not have time to change in between. It’s simple, sophisticated and classic. I just need a glass of prosecco in my hand…
If a white skirt is not your thing you could always team the look with a denim skirt a metallic midi or even a white embroidery skirt to mix and match your prints.
For autumn I will be wearing the shirt with some blue ripped jeans, statement boots and my grey longline fitted coat. Don’t ever be put off with pale colours they can always be merged into you autumn/winter wardrobe.
How are you styling your striped shirt this summer?
