Spring Essentials: The Shirt
For spring 16, our Humble & Laundered womenswear trend has reinterpreted the classic shirt. From lightly creased, to linen mixes, and striped, dreamy sky blues, to hints of red; we’re calling out the relaxed shirt as a must-have for your new season wardrobe. And, because we always have your back, we’ve gathered our top picks to point you in the right direction. Naysayers, prepare to be converts, and shirt fiends, prepare to fall in love!
5pk copper-tone clothes hangers £3
Our womenswear design manager, Sam Chilton, says this easy piece works best in ‘boyfriend fits’, and should be worn oversized, slouchy, and loose. When it comes to style references, think about channelling off-duty model chic (for major inspo, checkout fashion week street style photos). The best part? Prices for these covetable wardrobe essentials start at £8...Yes, you read that right!
Blue & white multi-striped shirt £10
Blue chambray shirt £10
Shedding its overtly smart connotations, the laundered shirt should be worn in tandem with distressed denim, for best results. It’s all in the attitude, so be sure to wear this must-have with irreverence and stylish nonchalance; tucking one side into your ripped denim, and pairing with your best spring ankle boots. Throw on a parka to finish the laid-back look.
Vertical stripe shirt £10
Classic striped shirt £8
Styles range from long-line, to collarless, and traditional collared silhouettes to shirt-dresses complete with belts. It doesn’t matter which one you choose, just make sure you’re in the shirt of the season, and be quick, they’re in stores now!
White chambray shirt £10
Starting from £8, you'll be hard pressed to find such an integral spring buy, at such great prices, elsewhere. Boasting versatility, amazing value, and endless style, we think the allure of our shirt selection speaks for itself.
