Trend of the Week: Get Shirty and think off the cuff

Inspiration:

The codes of fashion have always allowed reinterpretation, which is why the humble button-down has gone up in our estimation.

Given the times in which we live, the most popular iterations are rendered in soft fabrics and augmented silhouettes to allow for a modicum of ease.

Consider it feelgood fashion when things are not-so-easy writes Annmarie O'Connor.

1Trend of the Week: Get Shirty and think off the cuff

Style Notes:

  • Bye-Bye Blazer: Swap out that workwear blazer for an overshirt or‘shacket’ for cosy, home office style.
  • Make it look easy: Belt an oversized shirt over bottoms of your choice or half-tuck the front panel for laidback luxe.
  • Bonus points: Button the sleeve cuff; pull the sleeve as far as comfortable up the arm and balloon the fabric.
  • Show off: Layer sheer fabrics like organza with a thin roll neck for visual interest.
  • Double Duty: Mini shirt dresses make mighty layering pieces. Wear yours over leather culottes or cashmere joggers.
  • Fun fact: In 1783 French queen Marie Antoinette wore her bed shirt a dress with a silk sash, pre-dating the underwear as outerwear trend.
