I go absolutely weak at the knees for a smart uniform, and aside from the odd fancy dress party where I’ve dressed up as a nun and a policewoman, it’s very rare that I get to play dress up. I love formal wear, blouses and smart-casual attire, and when I saw this beautiful ladies shirt by G-Star Raw it was love at first sight!
I am head over heels for the tailoring of this piece. The full sleeves and tight cuffs give this slim-fit shirt a sense of authority and respect, with military details picked out on the popper-finished breast pockets, shoulder straps and vertical stitching to the chest and shoulders. This stunning butternut colour shirt is synched at the waist to give a dominant feminine shape, and the collar can be buttoned to the top or left undone. I am a UK8 and this slim fit shirt is a size S (small), with the 97% cotton and 3% elastane mix making the fabric very comfortable and easy to wear.
I have undone the shirt to the bust to expose my bra for a flirty daywear look, however you could easily wear this with a white vest underneath or satin camisole. I have teamed my shirt with dark denim jeans, a brown belt, gold watch and ring, messy natural hair and minimal makeup, and pink lipstick to match my bra. I love the military look and it fits me like a second skin. At just £80.00 it is a welcome addition to my wardrobe.
