1 Shirt - 4 Ways


With most people taking the time to consider fashion a little more these days - either for sustainable reasons or the after effects of lockdown, making pieces in our wardrobes work hard is the easiest way to keep things fresh and not spend a fortune. Investing in key pieces that can be styled up in multiple ways for lots of different occasions is the goal. With that in mind, I have taken one of my favourite pieces from Mint Velvet and styled it up four different ways. *I am a style advisor for Mint Velvet, and I love to help my customers feel great, look amazing and enjoy the feeling of knowing they can pull together a look with little to no effort.

This shirt is a classic white shirt, with an oversized fit, longer in length with rolled up sleeves - perfect to wear alone or layered. I always recommend this shirt to customers in store as it really is so versitile.....as you will see from the below looks - giving you a casual daytime style as well as something a little more dressier for those elusive post-lockdown date nights.

All items featured in this post are available now instore or online at Mint Velvet.


1 shirt - 4 Ways - styling ideas

Outfit One 

Shirt used in all looks - White Oversized shirt

Faux Leather leggings, Black Fedora Sparkle Trim Hat, Black Leather Cowboy Boots & Gold Charm Necklace

Utilising the longer length of the shirt, teaming it with leather look leggings - a staple for any Autumn/Winter season, gives it a modern take on rock chick chic. Adding a statement buckle boot (these are an amazing pair, perfect heel height for everyday and they look great with dresses as well as jeans), a classic fedora hat and a long charm necklace. Think 2020 boho styling. If the leggings are a little out of your comfort zone, this outfit would work just as well with a pair of skinny jeans.


Outfit Two

Khaki Cargo Trousers, Denim Jacket & Hailey Stone Trainers

Styled with these cargo trousers gives the shirt a much more casual feel, wear it tucked into the trousers to define your waist. Layering the denim jacket adds a little structure to the shoulders and the two tone trainers, with a splash of sparkle make it a great everyday look. I would wear this for a day out with my little boy - easy but still so stylish.


Outfit Three

Maryland Black Skinny Jeans, Cropped Leather Jacket, Debbie Biker Boots & Leopard Print Headband

A classic monochrome look, mixing the white shirt with black skinny jeans and a leather jacket - cropped to show off more of the shirt and highlight the waist. Teamed with the IT boot of the season a chunky biker boot, perfect for keeping your feet cosy whilst looking chic. The leopard print headband is just a nice pop of print to a very simple outfit. This outfit could also be layered up with a winter coat as the finishing touch when the temperature drops.


Outfit Four

Joliet Grey Skinny Jeans, Dusty Pink Cities Sweatshirt & Palmer White Velcro Trainers

My favourite look - Easy casual styling with the shirt layered under this gorgeous blush pink sweatshirt, with the sleeves rolled up. Teamed with a classic skinny jean (I have gone with grey but any colour would work) and my favourite new season trainers - Velcro is not just for kids anymore. This is the perfect everyday outfit....throw on a classic tote and your ready for the day.
