A look I think will be prominent in the upcoming months is the sleeveless, buttoned up, collared shirt. I noticed that many stores are currently sporting the look and giving customers great ideas on how to implement the piece into their everyday wardrobe. It’s such a versatile little shirt I predict it’ll be a hit!
One way I love the look of this shirt is when it’s paired with a skirt. Depending on the type of skirt you pair it with, it can be worn for a nice walk around town with friends, a date or even during a day at the internships many of us will be participating in through the summer months. I myself prefer the look of a flowing A-line skirt to balance the fitted look of the top.
Another way to wear the look is to pair it with pants. Skinny jeans give the look a nice flow but at the same time it can be paired with flared slacks to give it a more polished look. If you really want to go casual a pair of shorts of a nice pair of rolled capris could be another direction to take it.
The look even comes in a dress form if you really want to skip the mixing and matching game. Charlotte Russe has a great collection of collared shirt dresses that come in a variety of prints and colors perfect for the feel of the upcoming summer. And they even follow my cardinal rule of being easy to throw on in the morning while still looking like you put thought in your outfit.
So go out and find the fabric, color, and fit that work for you and add a little class in your wardrobe!
