Have you started the countdown to Spring already? Lord knows I have had enough of this cold and so ready for some heat on my skin. As much as I enjoy winter fashion, I’m so over layering now. -And the constant rain doesn’t help either but, of course that’s UK’s signature. Ha!!

So lets talk about the versatile shirt of all versatile shirts! I got this Striped High-Low Bowknot Shirt from a brand called Dresslily and I must say, I haven’t seen anything like it before. As seen above, the shirt has this two-toned design of plain white and stripes. The interesting thing about it is that, it’s like two different shirts put together. The back of it has buttons too which means when both front and back are unbuttoned, there’ll be a separation. How cool is that!!? The shirt has another sleeves in the waist that’s a belt which can be tied front or  back. Lastly, it is low at the front and long at the back. I love everything about this. It is definitely a versatile shirt that can be worn all season. Whether you choose to style it casually or dress it up,  a lot can be down with it. The quality is great and totally affordable. It is currently on sale too (just in case you likey!).

Some of the ways I’ll style this piece are;

  • As it is still winter, I’ll layer it -either wear a sweater over it or wear a polo neck sweater underneath.
  • Layer it with a nice blazer or coat.
  • Tucked in a skirt, jeans or even tailored pants.
  • Play with proportions and wear it loosely over a boyfriend jeans.
  • I’ll consider tying it around the waist during the warmer days over some buttoms.

What do you about this shirt? Have you heard of this brand before?

*Disclaimer: I received this shirt on a ‘wishlist collaboration’ purposes. Not paid, whether you buy it or not.*


Thank you for your feedbacks and lets link up on other social media platforms.


Much Love!

    This is truly a unique shirt! I have gotten some things from Dresslily and I had mixed feelings about the store. I think the biggest thing that made me think twice about buying from them was how long it takes to get something delivered. I like how you included different ways of styling for this blouse, all sound awesome. You look amazing sis!!


    • February 22, 2018 / 6:33 pm

      Indeed sis!! Yeah I agree on the delivery. Ordering from some of these Chinese brands in a whole can be sometimes annoying to be honest. The waiting is too much.
      Good to hear that sis and thanks so much again. 🙂
