i haev decided shrits are good

I certainly used to when I was at work.

I still tend to wear them a fair bit all year round, even in the summer now as I'm not mad on t-shirts.

HuwEdwards Mon 29-Sep-08 15:19:01

I wear them, but for work only because generally about half way through the day they look distincly un-ironed. That's the bugger with shirts. Oh and I am always fiddling with my cleavage to make sure the shirt isn't too low or god forbid, gaping.

With knitwear you don't all this.

I don't wear them much as my 32F bust (thank you, Bravissimo!) tends to result in unattractive gaping around the nork area.
Or if big enough for the norkage there are acres of surplus fabric around the waist.
And despite Bravissimo coming up trumps in determining my correct bra size, their tops are frumpy. Even for me, and god knows I am no style icon.

Shirts can be hard to waer, as oten too cold and need a jumper or a cardi or too hot and want short sleeves something looser.

Rarely is it ideal shirt weather.

Shame they can lok really good.

Ok for work as jacket gives you flexibility with the hot/cold issue.

finbar( skittle) as this - looks ACE

TheDevilWearsPrimark Mon 29-Sep-08 15:31:15

I like em, but you get that annoying creasing around the waist with cotton ones. Which can make you look a bit like a human concertina.

I am very much a fan of silk or chiffon shirts under round necked tunic dresses. Or round necked sleeveless jumpers.

But they have to be uber stylish and fab colours or you look like a schoolgirl.

MrsBadger Mon 29-Sep-08 15:46:31

me me me

in a cas manner with jeans etc only though as work in Informal Environment, sometimes with white vest under and unbuttoned to show it as I easily look prissy and librariany if too buttoned up (new specs should help and I will be consulting MN on them).
Usu avoid tanktops for this reason but they look nice on many.

lol at an unbuttoned badger

Mercy Mon 29-Sep-08 16:03:28

Yes it probably does depend on your shape. I'm like an ironing board so I don't have to worry about cleavage etc.

Shirts look good with tank-tops or scoop neck jumpers I think and can look good under various styles of jackets.

I sometimes wear a thermal vest (!) under mine when it's cold

NotCod Mon 29-Sep-08 16:06:18

yes i tired on the kew stretch tank in there a while ago
veyr nice.
didnt buy though

Mercy Mon 29-Sep-08 16:06:19

I wonder if Malory has a Mallory tank?! (it does look good, I agree)

NotCod Mon 29-Sep-08 16:08:56

sadly, i htought of her too!

dexter73 Mon 29-Sep-08 16:24:28

I love shirts and wear them with jumpers, tank tops or cardies. Also with long sleeved t shirt under if cold. Have just bought this shirt and it is very nice.

NotCod Mon 29-Sep-08 16:26:11

georgiemum Mon 29-Sep-08 16:27:24

Ironing. shock shock shock

Need I say more?

EffiePerine Mon 29-Sep-08 16:27:44

Get properly cut ones if large of nork

Pinks are excellent but pricey - Lewins OK but can gape depending on style

NotCod Mon 29-Sep-08 16:27:56
