Ok so I tried the chambray shirt as a jacket again, but this time over a t’shirt and jeans, in my opinion it looks much better.
I guess it all comes back to the idea of keeping things balanced. The shirt is loose and un-structured and likes to be worn with something structured, such as a pair of jeans. I did something else to balance this outfit, as the shirt is fairly masculine and casual it helped that my shoes and necklace were both feminine and dressy.
Now this may seem to be a contradiction, my outfit yesterday was balanced too, the shirt and boots were masculine and the dress and necklace were feminine…..but whether or not something is masculine or feminine will not make it look more or less flattering, that comes down to cut and shape.
Oh dear, I think I have given myself a headache with all this over analysing….
Guin’s advice today, if it looks good wear it!
