THE SHIRT WITH
A TWIST

Designers have turned the classic shirt into a statement piece – here’s how to wear this season’s most talked-about style hero

Finding the perfect shirt is like finding a pair of wear-forever jeans: when you eventually find ‘the one’, you know it’s for life. With tailoring, I’d normally argue that simple is best, but this season, the rules have changed. From cut-outs and frills to alternative silhouettes, serious shirting has been given a playful update. This Autograph design with pretty bow sleeves is my pick of the bunch. Wear it to the office tucked into a high-waisted midi skirt or trousers and cinch with a belt, swapping for denim or leather trousers off-duty. If you’re layering with a knit or jacket, make sure the bows on the sleeves are pulled through – that’s a detail you don’t want to be missed. Then wait for the compliments to roll in.
