This summer here at Tluxe we've created our very own take on the classic white oversized shirt in cool, crisp and planet-friendly woven organic cotton. This stolen-from-your-boyfriend style is the perfect beach cover-up, great for throwing over a bikini while having the added benefit of protecting your skin from the harshness of the midday sun.
We’re also loving the clean, simple styling ideas for boyfriend shirts that we’ve been seeing via the street style shots from around the world over the last few weeks, pictured above. Update your wardrobe with a little 2012 now by picking up your own oversized white shirt from our online store today – but be quick, this is a classic that simply flies off the rails.
This week, we’re watching Anna Wintour’s Obama campaign and perusing Karl Lagerfeld’s new book, Little Black Jacket while wearing our tuxedo-inspired Chelsea shirt. As the great Karl himself says, “Who can live without black clothes?". Personally we find the Chelsea a great way to add a little tux lux to a relaxed, casual look without resorting to the full tailored number a la YSL’s original Le Smoking (pictured above). We’ve styled it with our Raffles trousers but you can team yours with a pair of high waist, wide-leg pants for a touch of Bianca Jagger, or add dark skinny jeans, heels and a blazer in white or a contrast colour for a little hot, new, now.
This week, to take our minds off the first few days of a very grey Sydney winter, we’re thinking of all things sparkly and listening to Sébastien Tellier’s La Ritournelle:
We're also watching seriously bad 1970s TV broadcasts of the Queen’s last jubilee (oh how things have changed), while mostly wearing our ever so slightly 70s-inspired Le Crillion wool and silk poncho (pictured above).
We suggest layering yours over our super soft stretch wool fleece, a pair of Tluxe Perfect leggings, and for sheer, sparkle-like-a-diamond-jubilee cheer, throwing on a pair of shiny shoes, like these fab brogues (pictured above) from Simone Rocha.
