Working wardrobe: Shirts
Shirts are essential for the working wardrobe. They’re appropriate and practical for many occasions! Though I’ve a couple of shirts and blouses already, they’re not exactly basic pieces (either prints or come with attention-seeking embellishments, also my casual wear), so as part of this new wardrobe plan, I intend to get a few plain shirts for my working wardrobe, while letting go of a couple.
Over the years though, my preference changed. I’ve grown to learn how I’d like to look and at the same time consider what works for me and what doesn’t.
The shirts I’ve been looking for are minimalist silk shirts that I can grab and wear in the morning, without putting much thought into them. I managed to find some good pieces, but none as plain as the Zara shirts I’ve been admiring and trying. Recently, the shirts (the PERFECT plain shirts!) I ordered arrived directly from the UK. Felt good trying them on and I know I’d wear them over and over again. As I hung them on the rail, I just felt like the search is complete – I have enough basic shirts for my working wardrobe now!
