For the past few seasons we’ve been a little obsessed with everything IT - the IT bag, the IT jeans and the IT prints. But this spring it’s as if we’ve had a fashion epiphany. In amidst the wardrobe mayhem we felt an uncontrollable urge for basics…yes basics. The sweater…the shirt! We hadn’t realised how hard it had been to find the perfect shirt. Yet in a small space of time shops are bursting with classic white shirts in various styles and fabrics even a studded collar or two. There has even been an explosion of designers creating the perfect range of shirts. From French label Equipment to Brit duo Palmer//Harding both create directional shirts by adding intricate detailing or in Equipment's case an endless array of colour alternatives to the classic white shirt.
We’ve even spotted both Rihanna and Katie Holmes wearing Current/Elliott’s “The Perfect Shirt” in the same week. Re-worked each season in a different colour way, it’s also a favourite of Drew Barrymore, Cheryl Cole and Jessica Simpson. Both singer Rihanna and actress Katie Holmes have very different styles, yet manage to style it up in two very different ways. Teamed with printed jeans, denim on denim or with floaty summer skirts – we can’t wait to get our hands this season’s perfect wardrobe staple.
