The classic style shirt, button down and slim fitting man style, is brilliant when it suits.
I understand the traditional white shirt is not a keeper for some.
The “classic shirt” doesn’t suit us all and we need alternatives to adapt and work for us.
Finding the right shape in a shirt can be difficult and when I find one I really think works it can feel like hitting the jackpot.
I have long admired those women who wrap themselves languidly in a man’s shirt and slink about. A look I would love to emulate but…
Fleet jacket, army jacket, Field Jacket, camouflage jacket; whatever the name, I need a new one.
If there is one piece in my wardrobe to justify my, “cost per wear’ philosophy it is this one.
I wear this style of jacket in a series of weights over just about everything.
This season I have seen the embroidery trend take the lead over the brass buttons and the more simple camouflage style; I still like the military feel of an oversized button and equally I find the simple version extremely wearable.
The shirtdress has been around forever and it is the one dress I need right now.
The shirtdress is one of those dresses that works with so much, goes anywhere and saves the day mid-season. Another “what will I wear when I don’t know what to wear masterpiece”.
I have been having a lot of those days recently and I have been searching for something new and different to wear. I love my suits and black pants/ blouse “uniform” but I need a break. Not forever, it will be only for a moment. The tailored and I are soul mates.
Too much denim? I think the answer is a resounding, NO.
I love denim, always have and always will. How about you?
Denim is an ageless fabric that can be crafted up in so many ways to suit so many different shapes and sizes.
Presumably that was its attraction when it was first created, an enduring fabric to fashion for practicality and durability.
When I think about the amount of denim to come through my doors over the decades for not only the children, and myself but also for David I cannot believe one fabric can have so many re-incarnations.
Our denim stories must include pretty much every whim and trim on the market.
From memory my first pair snaked over my pudgy frame at the age of ten; I didn’t care about how they looked, I was much less sensible then ;)
