When it comes to shirts one can only talk about advantages. Besides being very practical, they offer a lot of self-confidence and elegance. Moreover, you can create so many outfits just starting from one simple shirt.
Even if it seems that last year shirts have disappeared, this year they made a strong come back on fashion runways. Denim, liberty prints, sheer and various types of shirts have dominated the runway shows for spring/summer 2010. It’s useless to mention the timeless white shirt that seems to have magical powers, and it keeps reinventing itself every season.
Masculine white shirt
The masculine white shirt is a piece we all should invest in. A white shirt has only advantages. First of all, it is a classical, timeless item that will never go out of fashion. Secondly, it illuminates the face and can be matched with other colors adding balance and harmony to any outfit. Third, the white shirt is a very versatile piece that can be worn for a daytime, casual look, but also for a party or any other evening event. Moreover, is that special item that you can wear at the office or on a romantic date. For a casual look, roll up the sleeves, leave a few buttons undone and wear it tucked into your pants or jeans. You can even wear it with a skirt made from denim or any other fabric.
Matched with leggings and high-heeled boots, the white t-shirt can be worn as a tunic. For a more professional, office look wear it tucked into a gray/black high-waisted pencil skirt or a pair of carrot pants.
Denim shirt made a strong come back this season and became one of the hottest trends for summer 2010. You can wear it in so many combinations, for different occasions. Wear your denim shirt with rolled up sleeves, and if you want to leave it unbuttoned get a top underneath. If until now, head-to-toe denim was a total fashion no-no, this summer you shouldn’t be afraid to wear your denim shirt with jeans. Choose a shirt in a lighter color and jeans in a darker color. Accessorize the look with a belt, a brown satchel bag and a pair of gladiator sandals.
If you are more into the feminine look, a masculine denim shirt works great with a floral printed skirt, a floral dress or a pair of nude shorts and a pair of cowboy boots, clogs or platform sandals. Choose accessories such as a silk scarf or a Panama hat if you team it with shorts. For those of you who love a rock, non-conformist style, try matching a denim shirt with black skinny jeans, a printed t-shirt and ankle-boots.
This summer prints not only embellish landscapes, but also dresses, skirts, blouses, shirts and even pants and shoes. Floral prints are perfect for a bohemian, romantic look being the appropriate style that perfectly reflects femininity. As we have said before, this summer contrasts are a must. Therefore, a feminine floral shirt and boyfriend jeans of black leggings support 100% the statement. For a retro look, match a floral shirt with skinny jeans and accessorize everything with a wide belt. You can also wear Liberty floral shirt with a head-to-toe nude outfit made from shorts and high-heeled sandals.
Wear a white sheer blouse with white pants, a black boyfriend blazer and high-heeled sandals. You can also match the same shirt with short and flat sandals. Also, high-waisted pants or skirts can create a spectacular look if matched with a sheer blouse. A pair of jeans and a feminine, shirt is the perfect combination for a chic appearance.
Ruffles have been everywhere on all fashion runways for spring/summer 2010. Ruffled shirts are delicate and feminine, and flatter women with less generous chest. Therefore, try to avoid them if you have bigger chest. Wear them with straight-cut jeans and pants, and pencil-skirts in order to balance the look.
