How to wear ...

A simple white shirt.

TM Lewin have been on my radar for a long time. My husband buys all his shirts from them and has done for years. If I worked in an office then I too would buy from them too. When they got in touch to ask me if I wanted to style a white shirt for them I thought it would be good to see how you can wear one without looking office bound.

First up, inspiration from Pinterest



I chose the Fitted White Piqué Shirt £29.95. It was packed and wrapped beautifully and when I tried it on it was like pure silk (it's not, it's 100% cotton). Soft and very easy to slip on.



Here's how I styled the white shirt I received.








See how versatile it is when you put your mind to it? I could have done more with skirts and next time I will. This shirt is my new love to be worn many times again.

Check out how Avril from School Gate Style has worn hers - different shirt but still top quality and so easy to dress down.

Do you wear white shirts? I have always stayed clear due to 'stuffy' look and feel but this shirt was so soft and easy to wear.

    1. I didn't think I did love a white shirt because the ones I have are all crisp and stiff. This one is gorgeous!

  2. My husband is the same Fiona, he needed a new one from them for the wedding and bought five so I know how good the quality is, I spend my life ironing Lewin's shirts but have never tried a ladies one and it looks gorgeous on you, great styling! x

  4. White shirt and jeans is such a classic look and works with most shapes and sizes I find. It looks great with the red jeans you've styled it with. I have a lovely white shirt from Banana Republic which I find works really well on holiday as a stylish coverup by the pool. X
