I love a good blue shirt, and it’s hard not to miss them as they’re everywhere on the high street. Here’s my review of some of the best on the high street.
From Selfridges to Harvey Nichols, Zara to J Crew, the hue of blue is all around. Frills, embroidery and fluted sleeve seem to be the order of the day, and I’ve gathered together a few of the best.
Selfridges has some cracking fashion, and they’ve picked up on the Milan-based brand Vivetta. Taking its name from the designer who launched the brand Vivetta Ponti who worked under the with Roberto Cavalli. I love the playfulness of the colour and the cuffs. Not cheap but a wow factor shirt that would look fab with any outfit. The Tortora Poplin Shirt is 100% cotton and a curved hem. Both Selfridges and Harvey Nichols stock the range. This particular shirt is available in Selfridges.
If I had the money, the Erdem Koi pyjama top and trousers would be a must. Zara has done a poor rip-off, using cranes but this is simply gorgeous with it’s flared cuffs. It’s 100% silk and would be perfect with tailored trousers. I love the set. The pants, which you can just see in the image, are tapered. £635 in Selfridges – only sizes 8 & 14 left in stock.
Top Shop has some great pale blue shirts, and I took a shine to this Dorothy gingham blue shirt. Puff sleeves and gathers at the shoulder, there’s a cute black tie at the back. £29.
The trend for off-the-shoulder shows no sign of slowing, and if you’re going to bare your shoulders, then this is a beauty. A classic, retro Liberty print – Edenham Floral – this fabric design is 20 years old. Again, not cheap but neither is quality. £108, J Crew. Super cute with jeans and the shorts.
Zara has some super shirts, and this sky blue asymmetric number caught my eye. Team it with white cigar trousers and slides, and you’ve got a classic look. Totally affordable £39.99.
Again the fluted sleeve is a love of mine, and this striped top with round neck and elbow length sleeves had me at the scalloped finish. Cute teardrop opening. Zara bargain £25.99.
Marks and Spencer aren’t lagging. Simple tie cuff and pinstripe, this from the Autograph range. £39.50
