How to style your shirts and #TMGLOBALSTYLE
I’ve always placed importance on key pieces such as shirts. There are so many patterns and fits of shirts that it’s almost impossible to own every type of shirt.
I’m highlighting the two most important styles of shirt to me that are the most worn and adaptable: smart and causal. With the help of T.M Lewin, I’ve styled up both types of shirt, with this post focusing on the casual shirt. Casual shirts are really good to style as they are versatile and can be worked into a number of outfits.
This light plain blue Oxford casual shirt has a relaxed button down collar, small breast pocket and is 100% cotton, meaning it’s super comfy. As this is from their casual range I styled this up for an outfit that can be worn day-to-day, but also relaxed meetings. My cardigan is from one of my favourite brands All Saints from their AW range a couple years ago with a knitted discrete pattern. On my legs I wore some simple light blue stretch skinny jeans from River Island and then some nice low desert boots from shoe specialist Frank Wright.
Typically on the day of shooting this outfit post it decided to rain quite a lot, so when the rain did decide to eventually stop, I took out a stylish umbrella with a leather handle out with me just in case it started to rain again (This was the fourth attempt of planning to shoot this look).
Coinciding with this first of two posts about T.M Lewin and their range of shirts, they’ve also just launched their #tmglobalstyle competition.
