This month’s 20 30 40 is all about the White Shirt … with a twist!
There is nothing more classic than a fresh white button down shirt; it is the most timeless wardrobe piece you’ll own.
It can bridge from work to play and has unlimited styling options.
Styled under corporate suits, paired with patterned skirts and pants for a day in classroom, teamed with denim and heels for a girl’s night out or for more casual vibes with some relaxed jogger pants and sneakers.
Always fresh, clean and on-trend.
With so many versions of the classic white shirt on the market we decided to share with you this new season option from Wilo Green.
The Miranda Wrap Shirt dress is a funky take on the classic white shirt, with its front tie/twist detail and its versatility of being able to be worn as a shirt or a dress.
Below we have styled it three ways across our varying age groups to give a few ideas for your upcoming Spring outfits.
I have styled the shirt for work – a day in the office or in the classroom. Gone are the days of the dreaded white blouse and black pants look, this shirt is fun and edgy for any workplace.
“I am always on the hunt for a white top that I can wear to work, and with this one, it was love at first sight. I love how I can wear it to work, but also on the weekend too.”
Sarah has styled for a “play” option.
Out with the girls, heading out on a date, a family gathering or Spring BBQ. Paired with neutral heels, gold accessories and some ripped denim for easy, stress free dressing that takes the thinking out of getting out the door.
“I love the ease of this shirt and its ability to cover up the tail end, whilst still defining the waist. You are able to really pull the waist tie in tightly for definition, or wear loosely for a more relaxed cut.”
Cate has styled the shirt as a dress. Perfect for hangs at the park or over swimmers at the beach.
This month our choice to focus on Wilo Green clothing was to share with you the story of this small online business which has a great feel and vision.
We asked Anna Green (the owner) to share a little about how this small business came to be and what else she has to offer apart from this fabulous Shirt Dress!
Her story can resonate across all age groups from the busy graduate, to the stay at home Mum and all the way through to women re-entering the workforce after children and beyond.
Her minimalist approach to styling and creating capsule wardrobe collections is refreshing and attainable.
“I have been in the fashion world for many years working in sales, management, merchandising, fit modelling as well as consulting with in house Australian designers and stylists. After having some time off from the fashion industry and after having my boys I found my passion again and wanted to create something I could manage around my children as well as combine my creative side.
I was now not only a mum but very time poor and had no time to get to the stores let alone find my vibe as a new mum. I wanted easy stress free outfits I felt comfortable in but yet with personality and a modern twist on the basics we all love and need, not to mention an attractive price point of every piece being under $100. I thought wouldn’t it be great to be able to shop from home but have the experience with a real dedicated honest personal assistant/shopper to help with any questions and concerns rather than just an ‘add to cart’ button.
This is why I initially structured the business through social outlets with a direct message service and email link to myself that busy women and Mums could have wardrobe consultations, fashion advice and ask any relevant questions about any of my pieces and have an honest, reliable caring assistant to guide them with their fashion selections all whilst on a lunch break or from the couch at home.
After much time and research I finally went for it. I started with 1 piece, a basic knit with a modern style and sold out in an hour… and I’ve been expanding ever since over the last three years. I also offer home shopping/styling sessions where I come to a host’s home with all of my pieces for a fun relaxed shopping experience with the hosts friends and family and many bubbles!
My favourite part of what I’ve created is hearing all of the positive feedback and love from my customers about their experience and what is has meant to them. Some love the fast easy service and others love the connection that’s made over helping choose the right pieces and fit and style to best suit their needs.”
Her online store is coming soon!! Yay!
Where would you wear the wrap shirt?
