Chic shirts have long been an easy wardrobe staple (we can’t get enough of the throw-on potential) but for SS16, theres more choice than ever before. Not as girly as florals and not as playful as polka dots, the striped shirt is the look of choice for spring and summer.

For a new season spin, we say don't be afraid to mix your prints and colour combos. The perfect date night outfit? Be bold and wear with a clashing bright colour, just keep it simple in design and go for a full skirt ora tailored cropped trouser.Or for an A-list approved take on the trend,wear with a striped skirt for a chic yet striking look.If that all sounds a bit too loud, keep it classic with a pencil skirt for a chic, office-friendly look.Whether you keep your shirt simply styled and in a slim fit shape, or go for the more directional trick of buying a oversized version, it's time to roll your sleeves up, unbutton just the right amount, add skinny denim and sky-high heels and you'll be onto a winner.Feel inspired?
