Chemma’s take on Summer-time Shirts

Summer-time Shirts

If, like us, you still aren’t quite ready for your summer wardrobe to make its annual debut, look no further than a patterned shirt, which you can guarantee Barnardo’s will always have in abundance.

Whatever the print, a shirt is the perfect gradual transition into the lighter months. You can choose light-weight, structured, open neck, long-length…and best of all, you don’t have to hunt through the second-hand items praying for the correct size, because there’s nothing more chic (and comfy) than an oversized shirt!

Emma: On Saturday it was blue skies but cool breezes, so I chucked on this buttoned up, long-sleeved blouse with jeans and trainers; I was covered up and comfortable but the bold, floral print meant I was summertime ready.
