Shirts with quirks

24 Oct

Every girl knows the wardrobe power of a good white shirt – or a denim one for that matter. Or even a striped one. Basically, any shirt will work hard for you. Dressed down with jeans, smartening up a casual cashmere jumper, dressed up with a full skirt for evening, the potential is endless. Buttoned up to the top, you’ve got your hipster at work look. Then, come 6pm, unbutton a button or three and you’re ready for cocktails.

Recently, though, I’ve noticed a few shirts that are less keen to sit in the background merely complementing the rest of the pieces in your wardrobe. These babies want to take centre stage. I’m calling them shirts with quirks.

At Zara, it’s all about length, shirts that play with the traditional proportions (all under £30)…

Do you like your shirts to have quirks?
