What’s the real star piece in your wardrobe?
No, not the prettiest, or the most expensive piece… I’m talking about the unsung heroes, the hardest working clothes in your wardrobe. You know, the quiet, unassuming, reliable clothes that you never pay much attention to but expect to be there for you, day after day, making your outfit look just right.
And they do that because they are the perfect background pieces for your statement jewellery, or the trusty companions to your more trendy items. And because of this, these are the clothes you you hold onto, long after the trendier, prettier one have been discarded. And that makes them the real stars of your wardrobe.
My star piece this summer has been the humble Marks and Spencer linen shirt. I have 4 of them. And I’ve worn at least one of them several times a week for the past 2 months.
I’ve worn the shirt loose over a dress or trousers…
And I think I can still come up with new outfits based on this versatile piece… Well, at least one: next week I will be posting the last outfit featuring the linen shirt, to mark the end of summer…
