It’s no secret that the shirt appears as classic standby in the women’s wardrobe for office and casualwear alike. This season’s collection of shirts for women sees a recurring trope in the avant-garde form of subtle or extreme reconstruction. Taking a more feminine approach to the classic menswear-inspired shirt, twisted, asymmetric, and panelled styles offer a creative alternative to the classic button-up. A luxe palette of crisp cotton poplin or twill, silk gauze, or denim iterations exude the essence of laid-back refinement. Unexpected features like bungee-style drawstrings, cut-out accents, or oversized kimono-inspired sleeves transform the casual shirt into a bold statement piece. Modern adjustments to the timeless officewear iteration include modern modifications of the banker stripe, while halter-style necklines and integrated camisole-style overlays explore the tensions between formalwear and streetwear while maintaining an utterly chic, reformist aesthetic. Quirky graphic prints, leopard patterns, and metallic sequin detailing bring a sense of play to the otherwise straight-laced style, while ruffles, lace overlays, and voluminous sleeves explore notions of modern femininity. This season’s collection of women’s shirting offers a versatile approach to sophisticated dress.
