Wearing: New Look Menswear shirt c/o New Look ASOS Whistles and Vintage jewellery Marc Jacobs watch Whistles jeans Chanel ballerinas Topshop hat
In the first of three outfit posts, I am attempting to style one of my wardrobe staples in three ways, and the garment in question is a classic New Look oxford shirt. Now, I love a nice shirt, and they are so easy to wear; so when New Look kindly offered to send me one to style, I was thrilled! There was one stipulation, though, and that was that the shirt was from their mens range. Well, that suits me; I don't think an oxford shirt should ever be too fitted and I often head to the mens section to look at the shirts on offer when I'm shopping anyway; they always seem to be a better cut because they aren't fitted like womens ones tend to be.
The one I chose was a classic white collared oxford, because this is something I've worn before and as my wardrobe is essentially monochrome, I thought it would work well! The shirt is quite a thick twill fabric, and is a really nice fit; I went for a size small and it's just boxy enough without being swampy.
The first look I've styled is a classic daytime outfit which is just so easy to wear, especially at the moment with the weather being a little warmer. There's no need for boots and knits yet but a sleeveless top is a little cool so long sleeves definitely fit the bill. I wore the shirt with a pair of Whistles boyfriend jeans and tucked in the front to streamline the shape. I added my favourite ballet pumps and a hat for an easy dose of daytime style.
I kept accessories to a minimum, with thin gold rings from ASOS and Whistles adding a bit of femininity. My hat is from Toppers and I love the colour and texture of it!
The New Look menswear range is really strong this season, with lots of really affordable and on trend pieces, and it's not just for the guys! Having a look through, there's lots I would actually buy for myself; the slouchy knits in particular are great and for winter I am definitely thinking about investing in a few!
