3 WAYS TO WEAR
A DENIM SHIRT

If there’s one piece you can rely on to see you through every season, it’s a great denim shirt. Here’s how to style yours for summer, whether you’re jetting off abroad or enjoying summer in the city

Layer with a dress

We’ve all learned the stylists’ trick of wearing a roll neck under a dress, but what about layering a shirt over it? For a fashion-forward, feminine look, try wearing a denim shirt buttoned up over a midi dress, leaving the cuffs and collar to peek through. If you want to add definition at the waist, buckle up with skinny belt, then accessorise with simple sandals.

Try double denim

Don’t try to fight it – the double denim trend is back, and it’s a great way to style your shirt for summer. Follow our golden rules for denim-on-denim action and you can’t go wrong. One key tip is to balance your proportions: a slim-fitting denim shirt with wide-leg jeans works well. Team with snakeskin accessories for a sizzling summer look.
