At the start of the week I told you about how inspired I was by the layered looks that I’ve photographed on the streets of Melbourne recently. Well it has been PROPER chilly so I’ve had the need and opportunity to get layered myself and love how it’s helped me re-discover a shirt that I thought I’d never be able to wear!
I’ve got to tell you – I find it so funny how much I enjoying wearing shirts now that I’ve left the stiff world of corporate. Back then collars felt so restrictive and outdated but now they feel fresh, smart and add structure to my daily outfits. While these days I’m usually wearing more casual and relaxed shirts, this week I’ve been pulling out my old office shirts and finding that they work quite well layered under vests and wool tank tops:
Didn’t quite have the time to iron a shirt? You may just get a way with wearing it to work by layering it under a jumper- assuming the collar looks respectable of course! 😉
How do you feel about wearing shirts? Do have a preference for cotton, silks or polys? How do you style yours for work?
