Oversized white button-down shirts are something every girl needs in her fashion armoury. They are a real classic, romantically breezy and just look amazing every time. Think the Romantic poets, Shelley, Byron et al, when choosing your shirt here and go a size up even if it’s designed to be oversized. That extra billowing material around your body is what creates that dreamy, artistic look that the oversized white shirt evokes.
This one is from last season’s H&M collection and I have had so much use out of it. I have a fair few white button-downs, but this one is without a doubt my favourite. The extra detailing on the cuffs and collar really appealed to me, it’s subtle and adds interest.
I styled it here with ripped pale jeans, which I rolled up to create a laid-back Summer holiday-esque look, and navy sneakers. If it’s colder then last season’s cocoon style coats are perfect for throwing on top of this outfit. A leather jacket would be a good alternative here. Just keep everything relaxed and the whole look just makes itself.
