It’s shirt season, and the good news is, you most likely already have one tucked away in your wardrobe. We’ve compiled the best shirt outfit ideas for 2021 and the key pieces you can shop from the high street. You won’t find a more versatile piece of clothing for Spring/Summer. From the classic stripe shirt to laid back loose fit styles, you can style a classic shirt to suit any occasion. Best of all, you only need one or two new pieces to refresh your wardrobe this season. So without further ado, let’s dive into some winning shirt looks.
The Stripe Shirt
For 2021, classic stripes have made a return in the form of co-ord sets, crop tops and boyfriend shirts. Fancy something a bit more colourful? We recommend browsing vintage sellers at ASOS Marketplace, offering plenty of unique and colourful stripe shirts.

The White Shirt & Belted Trousers Combo
All you need is an oversized white shirt, a classic belt, and a pair of tailored trousers to nail this trending look. To create a flowing silhouette, ensure your shirt reaches at least mid-thigh. If you prefer to wear your shirt tucked in, opt for a shorter length style.

Style with Beige or Khaki trousers
To execute this trend, choose tailored trousers with a mid-rise or high-waist, have pleats down the front panels, and are loose-fitting on the legs. A long leg trouser works best if you plan on wearing heels, while a standard or cropped length works best with flats and trainers.

Don’t forget the belt

The Shirt Dress
Shirt season also includes shirt dresses! We’re spoiled for choice this time of the year as high street stores are brimming with their best Spring/Summer pieces. As a general rule of thumb, you’ll get the most wear from classic shirt dresses in neutral colours but still snap up your favourite patterned or print dresses, a mix of both is ideal for a stylish and varied wardrobe.
