If I could give you one tip only for when you are shopping, buy a diverse piece. This is one of the rules for when I am shopping, I study the piece and try it on with different pieces to make sure its diverse. Of course that doesn't work always but it can be a deal breaker for me.
I love having pieces that I can dress up for a night out or transform to a formal piece with basic alterations to the outfit.
I’m starting of with sharing this staple piece, the white shirt. This particulate one is from Stradivarius and if my mom is reading she will know I ‘picked’ it up from her wardrobe (sorry).
Why I love this shirt particularly:
I enjoy the length of it, makes me feel comfortable
It’s not too fitted but still flattering
It’s comfortable with the sleeves rolled up or not
It still has character with the slit at the back
Lets start with one of my favourites. I paired it here with a Zara pleated skirt. Its a beautiful thick fabric that I know will last me a long time. Must say, it’s more of a winter piece because of the fabric - but I make it work for me. This is one of my go to work outfits.
Moving on to the next formal outfit, I paired the shirt with a zara high waisted grey wide legged cropped pants. I could buy any clothing in this grey shade, it feels so flattering. I have dressed it down before with a basic t-shirt and it still looked effortlessly chic.
This next outfit for me could work for work or just for going out. Zara dark Navy pants with tiny white dots. The pants are fitted however when paired with this shirt and its perfect length, it makes it more wearable for my style.
Jeans, flats and the tiniest bag ever! This is such a comfortable outfit for me. Its casual and comfortable but still put together. The bags is actually a belt bag from Tommy Hilfiger (without the belt here) and the shoes are Ralph Lauren.
And ending this post with a skirt I have worn over and over again. It’s lightweight, faux leather with gold buttons and it is so me. It could be dressed up with heels but Im a flats kinda girl most of the time and this shirt has passed the test of diversity with this blog post and is never going back to my mom.
Let me know if you enjoyed this style of posts and I can share more of them with you.
