31 Aug Witchery Style Collective: The Shirt
The Shirt | Worn Smart Casual
Every woman should have versatile good quality staples in their wardrobe. Staples that can take an outfit from season to season, casual to formal and from day to night. A good shirt is just that. Whether it’s a classic crisp white shirt, striped menswear inspired silhouette or a chambray number. This must-have style staple is amazing because it can be worn with everything and anything.
In this smart casual look, the chambray button-up shirt is the hero.
Styled here with a black asymmetrical skirt, layered neck accessories, a pair of strappy block heels and a red lip, the look has a casual glamour feel about it. It’s the kind of look that is effortlessly stylish. Probably because of how the everyday feel of the chambray shirt contrasts the draped and formal sense of the skirt. A styling tip, from me to you… Anytime, you want to style up a semi-casual piece (like this chambray shirt) I recommend pairing it with something black and tailored to add some elegance to your outfit.
The Shirt | Worn Layered
When one thinks of layering, winter immediately comes to mind. However, with the weather getting warmer, sometimes adding a layer is more about aesthetics and adding character to a look than being snug and warm. Styled here underneath a white sleeveless asymmetrical top with a pair of slouchy fit cuffed pants, the classic chambray shirt becomes the base for a relaxed on the go look. Worn with pointed basic flats with crossover ankle straps, a black sling bag and sunglasses; this is the kind of easy effortless look you can wear from the office to midweek drinks with the girls, without changing a thing.
The Shirt | During Summer Time
A chambray shirt is an essential addition to any wardrobe. It’s the perfect blue to wear in summer and winter, during the day and even at night. This understated button up is also perfect as lightweight outerwear. So when spring brings a night time chill you can be stylishly prepared by simply wearing your shirt as a jacket. Everyday pieces that easily address the needs of the modern woman work for all parts of your life. Being able to pair this shirt with a dress and summer time wedges for a casual roof top party look is testament to that.
