Fashion Hall of Fame – The Denim Shirt

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion.

I’m pulling together my Fashion Hall of Fame – a collection of pieces I wear again and again, that rescue me from those no-idea-what-to-wear mornings time after time. Starting with…

Topshop shirt, vintage skirt, very old belt, shoes c/o Bertie, Emma Fox bag via TK Maxx, charity shop bangle, H&M ring

I bought this denim shirt from Topshop last summer. It cost about £25 (I think) and I thought it was a bit pricey at the time, but after countless wears it’s become one of my favourite ever purchases.

The lightweight cotton makes it perfect for warmer days, although with a vest underneath or cardigan on top it’s great for chilly ones too. It’s a fitted style so works well when worn with looser pieces and can be dressed up with tailored trousers or down with floaty skirts. Whenever I’m having a wardrobe wobble it’s the first thing I turn to. If only it would iron itself!

I’ve worn this shirt so many ways – here are some of my favourites:

For spring/summer
Smart with floral trousers
Feminine with a circle skirt

For autumn/winter
Tough with a leather pencil skirt
Quirky with colour clash denim

This time round I paired it with a vintage skirt picked up in Paris (another wardrobe favourite, although maybe not quite Hall of Fame material), a chunky belt and heels and my current go-to bag. A quick and easy outfit for such a glorious day… although running for the bus in those heels was quite a task!

What’s in your Fashion Hall of Fame? Do you have an item (or a few) that you wear over and over and over?

I would definitely agree with you on the denim shirt… I have a couple and I wear them all the time. Stripey tee-shirts are my other complete weakness, I think I own about 15! I don’t tend to wear jeans very often but when it gets to the summer I tend to default to stripes and denim skirts/dresses. They are basically my summer uniform!


My Taupe maxi skirt. I am actually embarrassed by the amount of times I have worn it on my blog haha. White shirts I wear a lot too. Love your outfit, beautiful skirt x


I definitely have some Hall of Fame items, but I don’t yet have a denim shirt. You make it look amazing though so I’m very tempted to get one xx


This is such a good idea for a post, I can’t wait to see what item you pick next.
I’m not really a fan of denim shirts myself. I think it’s because my go-to item of clothing is my jeans and I would never want to wander into double denim territory!

I love this outfit, but every time I wear my denim shirt with anything that isn’t a pair of skinny black jeans, my boyfriend gives me a funny look and says ‘I don’t really think this outfit goes together’ or some such snarky comment! What does he know, right? But it does put me off being more adventurous with said shirt! Think your denim shirt/leather skirt combo is my fave xx


Jen, I’ve actually been planning exactly the same post haha! I wear my denim shirt time and time again, it is definitely in my top 5 most worn pieces


I’ve got that shirt! Though it suits you so much more, I never know how to wear mine! Awkward, as it’s one of the easiest things to wear in the history of wearing things (?) but I don’t feel I can ever wear it with denim shorts – double denim isn’t very me – and I don’t have an amazing floral pleated skirt like you, so yeah.

I don’t really like double denim either, so know what you mean! I find it works best with a print – try a floral or striped skirt, or maybe coloured denims? Let me know how you get on! 🙂


You look fabulous! Loving the denim shirt too… Think you have inspired me to go search for one! Hair looking good too! Dayle

I’ve finally bought a denim shirt – found it really hard to get a good one in stores so I found the perfect one for £7 on ebay. Not entirely sure how I’m going to wear it so I’ll have a little look-see at your old posts for inspiration! 🙂

I like your blog! I have a denim shirt almost identical to yours and it is actually awesome (wasn’t sure if I was going to wear it much at time of purchase, but I do all the time).
