How to wear ONE linen shirt in 5 ways – Simple and quick style tips

All of us dream of a stylish and affordable wardrobe. We love to buy everything that is in fashion and stop wearing them once they aren’t. But do you know, you can look great and not spend money on new clothes every month, if you learn the art of styling the same pieces differently.

We love almost everything we own, but can start disliking them when you have worn it too many times. It can a be a jacket, a pair of jeans, a simple tee or a dress. Learning how to style them will add a fresh new touch to your wardrobe.

I own this lovely linen white shirt from Marks & Spencer. They are super comfortable and stylish. After wearing it once to work, I kept wondering what else can I do with this?

Check out 5 different styles that I tried with this shirt:

  1. WORK & PLAY


White and blue remains the classic combination, always. I love using this at work. With the white linen shirt, I used a high waist blue skirt and a floral jacket. The floral jacket adds some spunk to the entire outfit. This combination can be worn at work and post work too. So next time, if you are invited for a after work party, you know what to wear.



Denim shorts paired with a long white linen shirt and a bright ikkat jacket, is your perfect outfit for a lunch with the girls. New found love: Yellow with white.



The beauty of indian wear is, it can be styled with almost anything and everything. I love the way this salwar holds the white shirt together. A little bit of silver accessories and you are ready for a comfortable day at work.

Dress it up or dress it down. Layering can be a relaxed style statement but you can always pump it up by using bold accessories. A shrug with the white linen shirt can be your outfit of the day for any winter get together.

By trying these DIY ideas you will never run out of clothes. These are few simple and quick ways to fix the “I don’t have anything to wear” bug. Do let me know if you have more ideas, on how to style this linen white shirt.
