There's one thing I love when it comes to fashion and that's clothes that never go out of style. When I saw this Striped Chambray shirt c/o Gant I knew that I'd found just that; a timeless shirt, classic tailoring with a modern twist, the perfect hue of blue and bold graphic lines. I was excited to try this classic shirt two ways, showing how this well loved brand can rock any look.
At first I picked a style I would tend to wear around town, running to meetings and generally being busy by teaming it with a classic mac – a must for autumn – dress down denim jeans, some colourful brogues and a black hat. I love how easy this look is to pull together, it's comfortable while staying stylish.
The second style I went for is a bit more fun and something I'd probably wear if popping to a bar or late night cafe haunt. By teaming the shirt over a black crop top with leather skinnies and flat pumps it creates a more edgy look, and I love how you can easily tweak the outfit by wearing the shirt open or tying it up to show the midriff.
I love Gant's new campaign ‘They changed the world. Not the shirt’ featuring five Ivy League “modern-day pioneers” including Pulitzer Prize poet Tracy Smith, painter Navtar Bhavsar and Amazon rainforest conservationist Mark Plotkin, showing how these classic shirts have been worn by some of the most passionate, innovative and authentic visionaries as they try to make their mark in the world and how we see things, just like Bernard Gantmacher did in 1949 with his passion for shirt making.
How much does this video make you want to put on a shirt and get out there! As for me, how would I like to change the world? Well that's a biggy, I think for now I'd like to spread encouragement and positivity, to make people happy in their journey, after all it doesn't cost anyting to be kind and share a smile.
