Keep it sporty

Pair a smart shirt with a pair of tracksuit bottoms or some teeny shorts for a bit of unexpected edge.

Go for oversized

Go big and bold. Wear it loud and proud.

Shop Oversized Shirt Pale Pink, STYLE REPUBLIC, R389,

Wear it over or under

There are no rules when it comes to the shirt that started all other shirt trends. So wear it over a velvet cami or tee or under a corseted body business that says 'I am SO fashion-forward'.

Shop fitted white shirt, R 249, H&M.

Or this classic striped number, R329, H&M.

Tie it or wear it open

Go for a holiday feel and tie it at the waist or leave it open as you throw it over your bikini at the beach for some sun protection.

Shop MRP striped shirt, R149.99.

Go for vintage 

Nothing is better than a printed vintage number paired with denim shorts - perfect for festivals this summer!

Shop them from Pereira Vintage this First Thursdays:

Prints, patterns or denim

Play with texture and even do the denim-on-denim combo.

We simply must have this new Country Road one, R699.
