The vintage obsession continues, with this shirt being one of my latest eBay finds. When I bought it I hadn’t considered what to wear it with, but after a little trying on session I settled on these pastel pink wide leg trousers. I like the tonal look, with the dark pink and coral shades in the shirt’s print.
Vintage shirts often have shorter sleeves than their modern counterparts, which, for someone like me with long arms is a drawback. A lot of vintage sellers include the sleeve length in the description, presumably for this reason. Luckily this one is just about long enough in the sleeves for me. I love the typically 70s dagger collar and the charming square metal buttons. It feels really nice on too, plus it’s the kind of fabric that doesn’t crease.
As I mentioned in last week’s link up post, when I buy a new (or new to me) piece of clothing, I’m going to think of several ways to wear it. Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style does this brilliantly and is inspiring me to be more creative with my clothes (check out this post styling a shirt dress five ways).
Even though I rarely wear white, I think this shirt would look great with a pair of white wide leg trousers – maybe the ones I wore for the Stylish Monday Summer Whites post a couple of years ago. Flared jeans would be another option, as would a pair of trousers in a contrasting colour such as blue or green. For an alternative to trousers I’d try styling this shirt with a pleated midi skirt and chunky sandals. These pink trousers are a couple of inches too long and I keep meaning to get them taken up. I should really learn how to do basic alterations but I’m apprehensive to try in case I make a mess of it. I need to find some YouTube tutorials – how did we manage without it?
