A shirt is an outerwear that is worn to cover the upper body from the neck to the waist. Usually, wearing shirts is identical to that of men, but these days women can also wear them in various fashions. In British English, a shirt is more specifically a garment with a collar, sleeves with cuffs, and a full vertical opening with buttons (North Americans would call this a “shirt”, a certain type of collared shirt).
Various materials can be used to make shirts, such as cotton, linen, rayon, silk, and viscose. Shirts is looser, stiffer, and conform to the body compared to the flowing fabrics used in making blouses. Shirt is must for a professional looks but can also be casual depending on your style. Easy to combine from skirts to jeans.
Many terms are used to describe and differentiate types of shirt and upper garments in general. In the late 20th century and into the 21st century, it has become common to worn tops as a form of advertising. Many of these differences apply to other upper body clothing, such as coats and sweaters.
Here are some ways to wear shirts for you to look more stylish.
The Knot Stye
Roll up the sleeves of your shirt and tie it around your chest or waist. Pair this style with high-waisted pants. You can even wear this on a maxi dress.
The Half Tuck
Wear an oversized shirt, then tuck one side of your shirt inside the jeans, while the other stays outside.
Convert Into Peplums
Oversized shirt is best for converting into peplums with a slim waistband. You can wear a belt or fold the remaining part of the shirt to form a peplum top.
Cross Wrap Tuck
In this style, cross your shirt at the waist and tuck it neatly into a high-waisted skirt or pants. Then, leave the top button open for a chic look.
You can tuck it into a shirt and button it up to the waist to make a bow with the sleeves.
Convert Into a Dress
Choose an oversized shirt and then wear a shirt without putting your hands into the sleeves of the shirt. Tie the shirt sleeves in front of or around your stomach then tie the sleeves back behind your back.
First, you have to wear underwear like a t-shirt or tank top, then wear a shirt without hooking the buttons. You can also add a belt as an accessory.
