Summer wardrobe staple: the cotton shirt

Summer wardrobe staple: the cotton shirt

When it comes to seasonal separates it’s nice to have a shirt that doesn’t feel so formal. As an alternative to the usual fitted tee an oversized cotton shirt is an easy piece to wear during the summer. It’s perfect with jeans or denim shorts tucked in or out, or you could throw it over a slip dress and tie it at the waist for a 90s feel.

I bought this chambray shirt in pale pink from the Topshop sale and it’s such a comfy piece. It’s really lightweight has great oversized cuffs and just feels right for this time of year. I actually bought it with holiday in mind as I thought it could also work as a beach cover up. I went for a size 12 in this for a loose fit, again making this shirt feel more casual. I’ve worn it with skinny black jeans, flats and (my favourite) basket bag for a summery finish. I can’t wait to wear this tucked in to washed blue denim or layered over a cami or swimsuit! How would you style this shirt?
