A fresh take on the classic shirt with La Redoute
This summer is all about a long forgotten classic, the shirt. From crisp white tailored shirts, to glamourous shirt dresses from the catwalks of Jil Sanders and McQueen. Teamed with anything from jeans or knotted over a maxi dress, never underestimate the power of the classic shirt.
Jil Sanders sparked the summer shirt trend with her Spring/Summer catwalk collection of elegant gown shirt dresses that have already had a few trips down the red carpet and looked especially beautiful on Leelee Sobieski
I've picked some shirts from La Redoute that will be perfect for this Summer trend. This Lee chambray shirt is all you need to nail the festival look and will see you through the entire summer. It will work all weekend long and looks amazing with denim, so try it with pastel skinnies or shorts, or knot at the waist over a sweeping maxi.
For a chic Mod inspired look, this two-tone black and white shirt looks amazing with colour-pop cropped jeans, but would look equally great tucked into a long length pencil skirt. This shirt could even work with a pastel skirt or wide leg trousers for a Summer wedding.
The sport luxes trend is here to stay for Summer, and this belted short sleeve shirt should be top of your wishlist if you're wondering what should be your first sport luxe piece.The relaxed style can be worn with smart, tailored trousers and heels for a look that's sharp enough for the office.
What shirt will you go for this Summer?
