Outfit: 3 Ways to Wear Miss Patina's Great Britain Shirt


Miss Patina is one of my favorite British brands and my love of Miss Patina and this new country I find myself in is combined rather perfectly in this simple but quirky white blouse. I don't usually go for button-down white shirts because they feel too business-y for me, but this one has enough personality in the embroidered collar and pocket to set it apart. There are so many ways to wear a blouse like this one and for today's post I styled three simple outfits around the shirt using pieces already in my closet--although another look I didn't get around to photographing is a cosy sweater with the collar peeking out (another look for another day!). Envisioning a new piece with three different outfits built from pieces already in your closet is actually one of my main shopping tips for developing personal style. When I get new pieces I can almost immediately think of several ways to wear it and if I can only think of one way to wear something I hesitate before adding it to my wardrobe. A white shirt is pretty easy to wear loads of times, but I tried to style it in three distinct outfits to show real versatility; after all this shirt with various skirts is multiple outfits but in the end they're all the same. How would you wear it?

Somewhat of a controversial shirt choice for Northern Ireland :-/

The skirt and leather jacket look is amazing! Especially with the heidi braids.

@Anonymous, eh as an American I don't really have a dog in that fight; wearing a blouse that says Great Britain is the same as wearing one that says France or New Zealand to me.

ooh i don't know if i like the first or the third the most. they both have so much character and that perfect feminine vibe. i love white button down blouses. something about the crisp collar is incredibly appealing. and yours is even better with the pretty embroidery

All those outfits are amazing but, the second is definitely my favorite! I love what you said about three distinct outfits. Sometimes I get caught in a loop of, "this is my skirt blouse" and "this is my pants sweater" without realizing how much versatility something has if I just start swapping it around!

I really love Miss Patina clothes- I only recently discovered them thanks to Doctor Who (Clara has a Miss Patina dress) but I really love their items!x

I love your remix posts! I also love how you show that even different hairstyles can change up the looks as well
