I firmly believe in the power of a white shirt. It is the only item that I own multiple variations of in many shapes and sizes. If I had to pick a favourite it would be this though. What better a way to pair a tartan printed pencil skirt than with a cropped silk shirt. Don’t even get me started on the floral lace-effect embroidery all over the chest and collar!
I have kept my shoes and accessories closely similar to look number one based around this skirt which makes it even more interesting that simply a change in top and jackets can transform completely the message of each outfit. I found that even after the silk shirt had been toned down with chunky detailing it still remains slightly more elegant than the former grungey look.
