- 3 WAYS TO WEAR -

A DENIM SHIRT

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

Layer with a dress

We’ve all learnt 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 a skinny belt, then accessorise with simple sandals.




Pair with shorts

The temperature is soaring and your legs are hankering for some sun; now is the time to team your denim shirt with a pair of high-waisted shorts. The perfect outfit for a chic beach resort or city sightseeing day, this look is equal parts practical and stylish. Pop on a pair of flat, metallic sandals to finish the outfit.




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. Firstly, wear like with like; you can vary the shade within a finish, mixing darker with lighter denim, for example. Secondly, go for modern, rhinestone-free accessories. And finally, to balance your proportions: a slim-fitting denim shirt with wide-leg jeans works well. Team with snakeskin accessories for a sizzling summer look.
