Whether you pair it with bold jewellery or high-waisted jeans, there’s a way to take your trusty shirt from a boring day job to more chic aspirations in the blink of an eye.
There is little that doesn’t go well with jeans. Opt for a timeless look by styling the shirt with your favourite pair. Both items are two of your closet’s big guns and together, allow you to stay stylish and comfortable all day long. Top off the look with a set of head-turning heels and a slick of punchy red lipstick for an evening out.
