Trying something different: A twist on the classic stripe shirt

OUTFIT: Zara Shirt (other fun blouses here, here, here and here), Anthropologie Pants (old), Bussola shoes (old)

I did something that I never do …

I wore a classic button down stripe shirt. Okay, that might not seem impressive or different as stripe shirts are basically known as a must-have in everyone’s closet….well not for me!

I absolutely dislike wearing “une blouse” (in french) or the classic button-down shirt.  The simple reason is that it isn’t my style, wearing structured tops makes me think of more conservative work wear.  My mother loves them, my sister loves them, but I find that it looks too serious for me.

However, when I saw this style online at ZARA, I hesitated then decided that I should try something a little different.

It is actually 1 shirt that can be worn 2 different ways.

This part appealed to me!

STYLE TIP: While you might hear everyone telling you that a blouse (or any other item) is a must have for everyone, I totally disagree. Always follow your gut and your style!  Someone else might think it looks great on you but if it doesn’t feel right, don’t buy it.

Stores are now selling not so classic shirts with frills, lace inserts, patchworks of different colors and mixing fabrics….it is much more interesting if you do not like wearing the traditional button down shirt.

They can easily replace your basic t-shirt when you kinda need to look more polished or put together.

Comfort and confidence in what you choose to wear is the most important factor when getting dressed.
