How to accessorise the classic shirt | blingsense

A staple for effortless, borrowed-from-the-boys style, is a fashion essential.
If you’ve always felt a little lost when it comes to jewel up a classic shirt, we’re here to help. 


Trends come and go, but the versatility of the classic button-down is perpetual. It has the benefits of a blank slate and can be dressed down or dressed up; it can be knotted or tucked into our favourite pair of jeans; styled with a pair of relaxed sneakers; paired with a voluminous skirt; 

'Go for crisp accessories to accompany a classic shirt.'

From adding scarfs with pendants, to rolling the sleeves up and adding a stunning cuff, here’s how to wear the look for spring…



    An androgynous shirt adds a daytime spin to a thigh-grazing mini, tuck in to create a waist, and team with feminine accessories, like multiple bracelets and a pendant.

    'The oversized shirts require multiple feminine touches or bold big accessories.'

    If you want to roll your up, just add one big cuff, like our Minerva's Edge bracelet and off you go!

    For a daily office look that might lead to drinks after work or a chic dinner, pair your tight dress, preferably in satin, with a midi  voluminous skirt and a clutch bag.

    There is little that doesn't go well with a pair of jeans, and unsurprisingly, the blue ciel or white button-down is no exception. Both items are two of our closet's big guns, and together, they look so fresh and so clean.

    'Roll your shirt sleeves above your elbows to add a bit of structure to the oversized look.' 

    A stunning silver cuff is the perfect accessory for a blue shirt, while gold is ideal for a white one.
