My top 10 favourite vintage shirts available right now!
Now, when it comes to vintage, there is a certain capsule collection you most definitely work towards in terms of versatility and wearability of your wardrobes. A great vintage shirt is like a great friend, you can go for weeks without seeing them, months even, but when you do it's just as great as it was before, and the time before that, and so on.
Shirts are a fundamental part of layering if you're not wearing a dress, jumpsuit or basic tee and go under or over just about anything. One of my favourite parts of a shirt are the collars, be it mega 70s dagger collar, mandarin or a ditsy peter pan style, they all have their very own special role in your look. The majority of what i've found are 70s because i'm very much in a relationship with dagger and beagle collars.
These are my favourite 10 available to snap up right now:
£30 SIZE 12
This shirt is giving me pure William Morris vibes and the pussybow will make a lovely accessory over a cute tank or cardigan for autumn. The silk is a beautiful fabric against the skin and will be airy enough for spring and summer too. Looks to be a size 12ish but check measurements.
2. VINTAGE WHITE COTTON BLOUSE AT MEDLEY VINTAGE
£28 SIZE 20-22
Boasting a 48" bust in the crispest white cotton, the detailing on the collar and sleeves on this shirt is just stunning. Don't forget anything button down can be worn as a light jacket too. I would love to see this over a romantic dress with a shearling or quilted waistcoat over the top for ultimate layering goals.
3. 1970S RED DAGGER COLLAR SHIRT AT FREE SISTA
£22 SIZE 12
Now this is the sort of piece that will have you coming back for more time and time again and always have a great time. Ideally, you'd have one of these in every colour but I think a punchy red is an amazing place to start. Chest is up to 38" so roughly a size 12ish.
4. 70S CHECKED DAGGER COLLAR SHIRT AT STRONG SECONDS VINTAGE
£28 SIZE 10
I'm loving the subtle pop of colour here against the denim blue and that collar is pretty spectacular. A statement alone or layered under a pinafore dress or with a tulle skirt and chunky trainers would be my go to!
