I hope you all had a great weekend. Sorry for being a no-show last week. I hope you guys didn’t miss me too much :-). I needed some time off to take care of some pending business and also to plan my future blog posts as I would like to start sharing my ideas on various lifestyle topics in addition to just fashion. So all is WIP and hope to share with you guys soon. Until then keep enjoying my style posts!:)
Today’s look is all about this gingham shirt. Love this check button-down that can be easily worn from work to weekend. It is actually the perfect shirt that can be styled either strictly business, casual or semi casual. Just pair it with a pencil skirt or a trouser along with a structured blazer, and you are ready with a chic work attire. Weekend possibilities are unlimited since you don’t need to abide by any dress code. Love wearing it in summer by tucking inside a pair of shorts or jeans, and in winter underneath a sweater. It actually would never make you look under-dress or over-dress. Basically it is the most safest choice when you want to take it easy and also be ready for an unexpected business meeting.
Oh and before you assume let me mention that it is not the “J.Crew gingham shirt” that took the instagram by storm last year. It is actually from Banana Republic and it is equally cool :-). Well no matter how popular this blue check shirt is among guys, girls flaunt them quite a bit as well and may be a little better as we have more styling options, don’t we? ;-).
Here I opted for a classic and preppy look by wearing it underneath an ivory pullover. To balance off the preppiness and to add a bit of a weekend vibe, I chose the distressed denim. The camel coat was an obvious choice as the color just perfectly compliments the ivory and blues. Just a side tip on a classic camel coat – No matter what you wear it with, It automatically makes your outfit look expensive and extra chic. Try it and you would know :).
