In term of shirts it’s not so much about fashion trends, as it’s about finding the one you like and matching it into your style. I was trying to build up in my head some nice outfits, but then I realized… they go with absolutely everything. You can wear a shirt with all kinds of skirts and trousers, you can look smart, casual or even sporty matching your white or plaid shirt with a pair of sneakers. You can were it also on a Saturday night out if you don’t feel like wearing a short girly dress. We were able to see white shirts (worn by women of course) also to the Oscars. It’s like a LBD, you cannot not have it in your wardrobe, especially the white classic one. But then… there are really a thousand types of shirts: slim or fitted; boyfriend’s shirt; plain, plaid or printed (floral, animal, graphic or army print), you just have to find out which one works best for you and match your style to suit your mood. Ohhh… let’s not forget about the denim shirt, which for two years now is a must have. You can have a business style and look different from your male colleagues by wearing instead of your classic trousers some nice wide-leg trousers and a pair of high heels or even flats if you want to be more comfortable, you can still look smart and throw your pumps into your maxi bag, just in case… And again I had to tell you which outfit is my fave one: white shirt, floral print pleated skirt and an oversized clutch, and… don’t forget, the best accessories to match your white shirts are the oversized necklaces and boyfriend watches, you can never go wrong with these.Pearls, studs, plaid shirt and a tulle skirt…who would think this combination can look so good?? And still it does, maybe you just need some courage and an invitation to a fashion event in order to dress like that.
If you don’t have a denim shirt, here’s a piece of advice… buy one you can wear it all year long, with skirts, dresses, trousers or leggings and mix it up in a casual or sport outfit, it’s comfortable and fashionable in the same time. And, yes! Now you can wear it even with your favorite pair of jeans, the number one rule is not to match the colours of the two items.Don’t be afraid to mix prints: graphic and animal, stripes and floral or floral and animal as in the photo below, just try to avoid more than two patterns in the same outfit.And here are some nice animal printed shirts. So either you are a shirt girl or not, there has to be a design which suits your taste, you just have to figure out which one fits you better.
