3 Ways to Wear... The Vertical Striped Black and White Shirt

  Charlotte (her blog is A Blonde Mess) gave me the idea to do this post just over a month ago when she commented on this post, about my recent Forever 21 order asking how I'd wear this shirt. I really love the shirt, I haven't actually managed to wear it out yet though. So, having made this post now - hopefully I'll start wearing it! Unfortunately I can't seem to find it on the Forever 21 website anymore, I'm guessing it was popular and sold out as it's a great, cheap alternative (at about £10) for this Topshop shirt, now also sold out online, which was £30.

   Here are 3 ideas of ways to wear the shirt, I tried to make each of them quite different.


Way 1: With Denim Hotpants

    Probably the outfit best suited to summer - you could pop some tights under the shorts and maybe throw a leather jacket over the top to make it suitable for spring! (These shorts are VERY short, I know, but your only young once! Haha!)






Necklace - eBay
Shorts - DIY
Belt - Primark
Lipstick - Maybelline Extreme Moisture in Royal Red



Way 2: Under a Dress

   This is pretty suitable for the weather right now here in England I think. It's also a little bit quirky and cute! 



Dress - H&M
Belt - Primark
Bracelet - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - Forever 21


Way 3: Under a blazer

   A really simple way to dress up this shirt a little. I think this would look great for a drinks or a meal out.



Blazer - Primark
Shorts - Forever 21
Bracelet - Miss Selfridge


Ps. My new blog design will be up in the next few days! I got my boyfriend to help me bleach my hair yesterday - think it might need a bit more lightening at the front / re-toning as it's too warm for my liking, but at least  I am rootless now. Still waiting on two of my giveaway items to arrive. They should arrive by tomorrow so fingers crossed I'll get the giveaway set up this week!

  15. I love this idea!
    I find that so many bloggers seem to wear something new every post, obviously thats fine for their blog, but honestly not all of us can buy a new outfit every day of the week!
    So i love when bloggers put the effort in and show us how to wear key pieces in different ways :)

    1. I always challenge myself to try never to wear EXACTLY the same outfit (although, we all have our faves!) and to try to collaborate old and new! xx

  16. That red lipstick looks incredible on you!

  17. I love the way you styled that shirt. I was just wondering, did you buy the denim shorts like that or did you customise them yourself? I have some levis I want to shorten and be really frayed and messy but I have no idea how to do it!? If you know how to, please share the wisdom!

    1. I customised them myself! Just got the studs from eBay and used a grater to distress the denim. Then run them on a quick cold wash, chuck them in the tumble dryer and they should come out nicely frayed! xx
