White shirt Wednesday: new age shirting

silk shirt styling half tuck

When it comes to street style, there are a few favourites we're happy to see updated and given a modern twist. One essential close to our hearts is, of course, the traditional button down shirt. A classic with endless fashion mileage, simple shirting has been given an artful little twist for SS16...

A subtle style hack with a serious fashion following, the one-tuck shirt has been firmly implemented as THE way to wear your shirt this season.

Showcased by designers like Balenciaga and Christopher Kane, it wasn't long until global trend-forecasters like Leandra Medine and Alexa Chung cottoned-on! Worn with a tailored edge, elongated cuffs and shirt hems give boyfriend-looking silhouettes a certain sense of fashion élan. A clever blend of street meets smart, predictive statement pieces for next season are given high-summer vibes with a refined formal framework.

The sensible smart-casual go-to for any occasion, the battle of balance is on – with contrasting elongated and high-waisted separates in close contention. Find out how to take a simple piece from ordinary to outstanding in one faultless manoeuvre...

A power play with its own set of strict kerbside rules, the one tuck shirt can be an outfit defining style trick. Using our high-luxe silk Hepburn shirt from the Swarovski crystal range, this white VAUGHAN shirt with classic button up front is an elegant classic for any occasion. Freshly pressed and wrinkle-free, this stunning ladies shirt in a 'glass menagerie' white can be worn barely buttoned for extra urban allure.

Worn like #Instagirl, Margaret Zhang, this creative style twist looks great with only the two middle buttons fastened. Worn with loose cuffs and in an oversized fit, this catwalk coup is given extra elongation thanks to this ankle-skimming black maxi. Worn high-waisted over the hips, tucking your shirt hem in high and wide gives extra effect thanks to the monochrome palate.

Teamed with iconic fashion fail-safes like this affordable velveteen choker and city-appropriate peep-toe leather booties, this look is a clean, mean outfit for anyone hoping to up their wardrobe game this season. Topped off with a pair of camera-shy mottled cat-eye sunglasses and a functional city tote, this simple twist on a closet classic effortlessly adds a touch of off-duty chic to any lacklustre ensemble.

Worn with a touch of fashion flounce, this new addition to your everyday rotation is the perfect pre-season pick me up for showcasing Autumnal teasers and love-worn classics.
