If you think business shirts belong just in a man’s wardrobe, think again! Business shirts for women have made a statement on the corporate runway. With so many ways to wear and style, a business shirt is a great piece to grab and put on in the morning for work. We have compiled a list of our favourite ways to rock a business shirt…
Sleek and Smooth
Particularly for corporate environments, a sleek, smooth, and beautifully fitted business shirt is a timeless styling option. Paired with an A-line skirt and a simple heel, this look speaks feminine and professional. Make sure to find your perfect fit – nothing ruins an outfit like an ill-fitting business shirt.
In the cooler months, a business shirt is your number one go to. Layer underneath a blazer or coat and accessorise with a chunky scarf for a chic winter look that sees you from home to the office. This look is also awesome for knock-off drinks or post-work dinners, where you can let the outwear either turn up the professionalism or give a more casual vibe. We particularly love a business shirt layered underneath a blazer with the sleeve cuff rolled up and on the outer for a cohesive and fun styling option.
Shirt & Vest
An emerging European style is a business shirt layered under a vest. This makes another great winter option. Play with colours and materials to find the right layering combo for your workplace. This styling method works with a clean fit business shirt, as well as a slightly oversized shirt for a more modern casual look.
The Half Tuck
The half tuck is styling made easy. Opt for a fitted bottom option, like a sleek skirt, chino or trouser, and a business shirt that fits well but has some space through your torso. Tuck a corner into your bottoms, and gather and style to create an effortlessly chic look.
The Full Tuck
For an extra sleek and professional look, tuck a well-fitted business shirt in all the way. On trousers, chinos or with a skirt, this look is complemented again with a thin leather belt. This is a great styling option for ultra-corporate workplaces or events. Plus, it is a flattering and chic option for any occasion and suits almost all female body shapes.
If you’re in a more social and casual workplace, we love the layered easy breezy business shirt look. Layer an open-buttoned business shirt over a well-fitted singlet or tee. Colour block with different tones and patterns to add personality and flair. This styling looks great with a slightly oversized business shirt.
