Sometimes on a lazy Saturday I like to play dress-up in my wardrobe and come up with new outfit combinations. Mostly they’re crazy – but occasionally I stumble on something that actually works.
To be fair, I already waxed lyrical about the magical powers of this longline button-up shirt from Zara. So if you’re sick of me freaking out over it then feel free to move on. (ByeFelicia)
But I discovered a seventh way to wear this piece so I just had to share.
I love a high waist – skirts, jeans, culottes, it’s a style that works for me. So the thought of wearing this shirt as a high-waisted skirt really appealed to me.
To make it happen I unbuttoned it halfway and stepped into it. Then I pulled the sleeves up to my natural waist and tied them in s knot in the front. I tucked the excess fabric up under the tie to create a sort of paper-bag waist.
I wore it with a simple striped tee from Old Navy, striped socks (I think they’re H&M), blue pointy shoes from Payless.
I’ve also got my quilted Zara handbag, gold Madewell pendant and cat-eye Dior sunnies.
I’d wear this with a tight black cropped tee in the summer – or even now with a leather jacket. But for now I’m happy to wear all of the stripes.
