It’s the wardrobe go-to; a nice top and pair of jeans. But what if your wardrobe is lacking in top half options. Here’s a bunch of stylish shirts and blouses for spring offering a solution. Some add a bolt of colour to liven your outfit (and mood), others offer a touch of femininity with softer lines. Sometimes only an oversized boyfriend shirt will do, so there are a couple of options here too.
If you want to choose styles and cuts that can flatter your figure here are my top tips. Pear-shaped ladies can go bold up top with colour and frills, while strawberry shaped aren’t looking for anything as dramatic, for these ladies the attention is better drawn to the bottom half. If you’re hourglass don’t forget to tuck in or use a belt to define your waist and apple shapes will look good is figure skimming and longer length options. When it comes to rectangles, you’re looking to add shape and texture, so interesting designs and patterns are a great choice.
Hope you like the ideas.
