So, there's no Gap where we are. DH was in [City with Gap] with work, and paid a quick visit.

He couldn't find anything he thought I'd like, but there were lots of denim shirts. He figured they're obviously having a moment, so he got me one.

When I pulled it out of the bag, the expression on my face probably wasn't one of unbridled gratefulness. 😳

Denim shirts are so not my style.

It's not something I'm ever going to wear. But then, I thought - before rejecting it outright - maybe there is a way of styling it that isn't reminiscent of Dolly, circa 1982. I love Dolly, but I don't want to dress like her.

Is there? Or are denim shirts seriously beyond redemption?

It's summer here, if that makes a difference.

I've gone onto Pinterest, and there are a few ways to wear one, so that is heartening. Probably only a few of those that I can get away with...

I have a slim fit denim shirt that I wear with grey skinnies, a flouncy midi skirt or a black leather skirt. They can be great if you have the right pieces.

Skirts are out, as I don't really wear them, but I can probably work something out with trousers - black/grey cigarette pants, heels, that sort of thing.

I wear mine with dresses more as a jacket with sleeves rolled up
Or with a plain white t shirt and black, grey or very dark skinnies
