The Blue Shirt
(Images via Pinterest)
So, this isn’t an ode to Elin Kling, though it should be because she does pretty much rock a plain blue shirt black jean combo, right? One of my favourite images of the year (random statement) is one I just posted on my Instagram feed (@feathers_frills), featuring a nonchalant tomboy wearing a slouchy blue shirt, scraggy jeans, tucked up brown leather belt and a token Marlboro. If I could carry off this look on a daily basis, I would, but I’m pretty sure I’ll never look this cool. However, this isn’t about my ego -this is about the exceptionally versatile wardrobe staple, the blue shirt. Whether its denim, cotton, chambray, your boyfriends/dads/sons/husbands or cheesecloth (or all off these) you need one. With pockets and no darts for a loose fit, its pretty smart. With breast pockets, and rolled up sleeves, its less dressy. In denim, with the top buttons undone, its sexy – done up, its preppy. In cheesecloth, its hippy. On its own, with nothing but a pair of fuzz-free tanned legs, its perfect. However you wear it, its pretty much fail-safe.
And if you don’t yet own one, you have no excuse because I’ve selected some of the best high street blue shirts for you. You’re welcome.
