How to wear a long lightweight button shirt five different ways

Nov 05, 2021

A long-light lightweight top can be worn in so many different ways to achieve completely different looks.  We’ve put the new ‘Camilla shirt’ to the test with the help of our stylists to show you how easy it is to ‘get five different looks’ from one stunning shirt. 

Out, buttoned through and monochromatic! 

Wear the long top crisply ironed, untucked and untied, buttoned all the way to the bottom over a matching colour of shorts or pants and add the pop of contrasting necklace.  Style the top with a lightweight or fitted cami underneath in your monochrome colour or a simple nude colour.  Pop the collar up at the back for a bit of extra pizazz. And, to make your legs look longer, choose nude shoes like Jen is wearing in the below picture.

Out, unbuttoned to the waist, paired with monochromatic bottoms.  

Add a pop of brightly coloured accessories to really make this outfit dazzle. 

For a different monochromatic look, style your Camilla top unbuttoned from the bottom to the waist.  Pair with the Helena shorts in navy and match the look to your shoe colour too.  Break up the outfit with colourful wooden accessories like the bracelets pictured on Lee.

Unbuttoned as an over-shirt, with a contrasting cami and capri pant

Wear your Camilla top unbuttoned as an over-shirt.  Choose a colour that will pop in high contrast to colour-matching cami and capri pant. Accessorise with a necklace that picks up the colours in the shirt and the background colour in the pant/cami. And match your shoes to the cami and capri.  

Tie a crisp white Camilla top at the front over bold coloured capris

We love this look so much.  Let the longer back of your top hang and tie the top at just below waist level at the front to show your figure a little more and allow a great view of your bold coloured capri pants.  Accessorise with some bright beaded bracelets and white leather trainers with a summer cutout for a modern look.
