As we approach Autumn’14 the trend of thick and formal shirts grows ever stronger by the day. I love earthy neutral tones, cosy and comfortable fabrics on chilly afternoons, and staple pieces that you can dress up or down to suit every occasion simply by changing your accessories.
Here I am wearing a shirt from the Pure Linen M&S Collection in a natural shade, it is a size UK8 and made from 100% flax. I love the feel of this shirt, it is soft yet thick, formal yet homely, and loose fit yet shapely. With it’s soft shade of natural linen and beige, pearlescent buttons, twin breast pockets and turned up cuffs it is simply classical. There is a single pleat on the reverse of the shirt and it finishes just below hip height with a rounded off hem.
Because of it’s neutral shade it would look beautiful with a casual high pony-tail, skinny jeans and converse, or equally a pencil skirt, heels and a bun. It is both reassuring in cut and colour, and timeless in style. For just £27.50 from Marks And Spencer, this is one beautiful wardrobe staple that every girl should have.
