No woman’s wardrobe is complete without a collection of versatile shirts. They can be worn pretty much anywhere; at the office, out to dinner, or on a weekend adventure. And, they can be paired with countless bottoms, like a pencil skirt for an important meeting or your favorite jeans for look that is both casual and elegant. Here are our picks for the best shirts that will become your new closet staples:
1. Linen Rich Stiped Long Sleeve Shirt, £29.50, M&S
The light pink stripes on this looser fitting shirt make it ideal for a day out on the town and its relaxed fit won’t leave you sweating in warmer months. Pair this with a pair of jeans and wedges for an effortlessly put together look.
2. Gingham Check Tie Neck Blouse. £30, Laura Ashley
We love the twist the added neck tie gives this classic gingham shirt. Perfect for the day at the office and can easily be dressed up or down. If ties aren’t your thing, it can easily be removed.
3. Tiered Trumpet Sleeve Top, £124.95, Scotch and Soda
This shirt is made from comfortable cotton, and its lovely sky blue colour has us dreaming of summer. The neck bow adds a flirty and feminine touch and wide sleeves give it a relaxed vibe.
4. Silk Polka-Dot Print Shirt, £165, L.K.Bennett
This gorgeous silk shirt, with it’s peplum fit, is flattering in all the right places. The navy polka dot print also ensures that this shirt goes with pretty much anything, whether it’s a pair of denim jeans or a black pair of work trousers.
5. Cotton Shirt with Lacing, £29.99, H&M
Side lacing gives this white shirt some added quirk, but it’s still classic enough to be worn to work or in more formal settings.
6. Ruffled Denim Shirt. £35.99, Mango
Denim pieces are totally trendy right now, and this shirt is a great way to incorporate it into your wardrobe. The shirt is actually made out of Tencel, which is an environmentally sustainable fabric, so you can feel like you’re doing some good whenever you put this one on.
7. Lolita Ruffle-Front Blouse in Peppermint, £125, Reiss
Ruffles are in and we love how this gorgeous mint shirt incorporates them. The flowy fit makes it easy to wear tucked or untucked. We can see this paired with everything from a leather black skirt and heels to casual ripped jeans and sandals.
8. Salterton Polka Dot Blouse, £89, Finery London
If you want something a bit more outside the box, this asymmetrical polka dot blouse is just the thing you need. It’s loose and relaxed and would make the perfect summer statement piece.
9. Cotton Rich Embroidered Fuller Bust Shirt, £25, M&S
We love this shirt for multiple reasons. It’s a classic striped cotton shirt, but the lovely embroidery adds a flirty twist. Plus, it’s part of the Fuller Bust Line, meaning ladies with large busts won’t feel constricted (available without the fuller bust feature as well).
