Spring has sprung (albeit a few April showers) and we thought it might be fun to show you how all of us here in the studio will be wearing a true classic: the jean shirt!
There’s nothing like the perfect denim shirt to wear throughout the warm weather months ahead. May it be denim on denim (a la Canadian tuxedo) or with a feminine skirt, we wanted to share how each of us will be wearing ours.
You can never have too many jean shirts!!! I have five, with different types of washes, from navy to very light, and different types of fit, from loose to pretty tight. My favorite way to style it will always be the jeans on jeans, but I also love it with a pair of very sleek tuxedo pants.
It’s funny, I really don’t wear denim shirts. But I got this one embroidered with my (full)name and it had me feeling nostalgic. I have a tendency to indulge in vintage (denim especially) , so mixing a shirt that already feels that way with something new and crisp like a high-waisted khaki is cool. A nod to Charlotte Rampling…strong and confident in a pair of trousers.
I could live in a denim shirt in summer – it’s one of my essentials, and carries fond memories of summers in Sydney. I love how a hue of strong blue looks so fresh against a stark white, so I tend to pair mine with white pants or shorts, loosely tucked in with rolled sleeves.
There’s an ease to a button down, and I think I love them all the more in denim for the feeling of Americana that hugs me every time I put one on.
I like to wear my more feminine pieces with boyish accents because I never want to look too much of either! I think the idea of a denim tuxedo shirt works perfectly with a cool gold drop-earring and a poppy red A -line skirt. And my Adidas three-stripe sneakers – they might be a bit unexpected but I try to keep everything balanced.
I tend to buy my denim shirts on the heavier side, which makes them great as semi-jackets. Usually I throw them over a t-shirt with jeans, or over a dress like this. I’m pretty short and straight though, so the belt is key, especially for keeping it more feminine!
