What are shirts?
A ‘shirt’ covers so many types of top, including the simple button down to floral styles to loose
smock shirt styles. There’s also the classic striped shirt look for a preppy tailored nod as well as blouses that can soften an otherwise edgy style.
Shirts have been a part of fashion history since time began, but were usually found in a male wardrobe instead of
a woman’s. Yet for women, shirts have become a wardrobe staple and every woman has their essential shirts that they use for layering, wardrobe basics and for easy, understated
Who should wear shirts?
Women’s shirts come in so many different types of styles that there is always something for everybody, every style and every occasion.
Whether you’re feeling body confident or would prefer to disguise a part of your body whilst emphasising another area, there is a shirt that can suit you.
Wearing a blouse can be a softer take on a shirt and is flattering on all body types and figures.
For those wanting to draw attention to their top half with a cheeky and playful flair, a leopard print shirt or an animal print style can make a statement. Or if you’d rather draw attention
to another part of your outfit, then choose a simple colour shirt instead and there’s always a huge range to choose from at Izabel London with orange shirts, navy shirts, khaki shirts, white shirts and black shirts.
When should I wear shirts?
Women’s shirts can work in every season and all year round, from short sleeve shirts to long sleeve shirts to beach shirts. They can be a workwear staple and having a few trusty essential shirts can make pulling together an outfit in the morning easier, especially for heading into the office or when you have a bug meeting to focus on.
Yet shirts can be casual too, and casual shirts look great on the weekend but can be mixed with smart style too for a laid-back vibe.
Women’s shirts can also work as a great alternative to a jacket or coat in summer, and throwing one over your cami dress or vest top and shorts can beat the chill.
How should I wear shirts? What pairs well with shirts?
Style your shirts in every and each way you want to - anything goes and the only limits are what you want to wear!
Go for the classic white shirt with a bold printed skirt or trousers for maximum impact, or choose a black shirt for a classic, smart look. You can also add an exciting style twist on a simple shirt look with bold and exciting jewellery, or by layering it underneath a bright jumper or jumper dress.
Pair your workwear shirts with a blazer, jeans and ankle boots for an easy ‘smart casual’ office look that works after 5 pm too. Or try an oversized casual shirt for an easy and relaxed weekend style that looks great with jeans, a t-shirt and trainers for a chilled look.
