How to Style the Backwards Shirt


Shoes: Soludos / Shorts: Forever 21 (similar) / Shirt: Vintage / Watch: Michael Kors

The backwards shirt look is so perfect for a hot summer day. I know I posted about the backwards shirt before, but I wanted to share some new insights that I learned and show a different way to style the top. The look is really about improvising and doing what makes you feel comfortable.

I recently got a few oversized men’s shirts that are so soft and lightweight and I seriously want to wear them all the time! I styled this look for a Memorial Day barbeque that I went to on Long Island and wore a shirt that had a design that sort of reminded me of a picnic. I styled the shirt as a one shoulder look and paired it with some high waisted shorts and since I was showing so much leg I wore my fave Soludos wedges that wrap up a little.

For me, I think it’s best to choose a dress shirt that stays with the classic blue color (perhaps with a little design: checkered, lines) or classic white. The best way to pick up one of these shirts is either at a thrift store or vintage store because you can get great quality and super low prices, like here or here on Etsy. I will be adding some new kinds of vintage dress shirts perfect for this look soon to my Etsy Shop, stay tuned.

STYLE IT – Once you have your oversized, light weight dress shirt; you are ready to go! I created a little video to help you get an idea how I styled this shirt so you can do it, too.

PS; I tagged some pieces to wear with the BACKWARDS SHIRT to get a similar look below:
