Personal Style: Baggy White Shirt, three ways


I found this old baggy white shirt from forever ago. Totally baggy, squared fit, late 90's... I think it was my sister's? Anyways, I tried three different looks with it to see if it could be salvaged or modernized at all. For my hair, I pretty much just teased the crap out of it and let it do it's thing since it is such a windy day. Fetching, I know.

 
The first is this Peter Pan/Maid Marion, forest green, lace up corset ribbed tank thing. I rolled the sleeves once for a bit of help. Kind of cute, but the shirt just bunches up all weird under the tank. Off it goes...

*totally weird action shot*


 Next, I just went with a partial tuck and the semi rolled sleeve.........

Then I added a gray scarf for a hint of class and low belted the top. I think this is probably the most modern version of all, but still not quiet feeling it. Maybe it's the baggy, holey jeans pairing that feels off. Probably for me, it will be going in the donated clothing pile, along with the green tank.

 
 jeans: amethyst/ belt: vintage/ shoes: oxfords/ scarf: forever 21/ watch: fossil/ earrings: jeweled ambrosia

Which version looks best here? Have to tried to salvage something and it turn out.. or not?

I like the shirt by itself or with the scrarf. My suggestion is to put it in the garage for 6 mos. If you don't wear it, then to charity it goes.

I like the vest, but I like the second look. It's casual yet pulled together!

A crisp white shirt and jeans will always look chic, it looks especially great on you though. Love the remix! Hannah xo
