How to Accessorise Short Sleeve Shirts

A short sleeve shirt is something everyone has in their wardrobe. Whether worn every day at the office, for formal occasions, or worn casual, a short sleeve shirt is practical and easy to accessorise to suit any occasion, no matter how formal or casual. Women can accessorise a short sleeve shirt with jewellery, a scarf, or with layering clothing. Men can accessorise a short sleeve shirt with a scarf or jacket.

 

Accessorise Short Sleeve Shirts With Jewellery

Jewellery has the ability to accessorise a short sleeve shirt or 3/4 sleeve shirt to suit any occasion. Choose fine jewellery, like a simple gold necklace, or charm bracelet with matching earrings for a formal event or for wearing with a work outfit. For something more casual, try costume jewellery in bright bold colours. Costume jewellery is inexpensive and looks great with a block colour short sleeve shirt.

 

Accessorise Short Sleeve Shirts With a Scarf

A scarf is not just for winter. Thin, lightweight scarves look cute with a short sleeve women's shirt when the weather is comfortably warm. With numerous ways to tie a scarf, accessorising with a scarf is suitable for formal, semi-formal, casual, or work attire. Be sure the scarf does not clash with the shirt. A bright print scarf suits a plain short sleeve blouse, while a plain coloured scarf is best with a bright coloured or print shirt. In the cooler months, a thicker scarf, such as a pashmina, may be draped loosely around the neck or over the shoulders.

 

Accessorise a Short Sleeve Shirt With Layers

One easy way to accessorise a short sleeve shirt is with layers. In summer, go for feminine camisoles under the shirt and for winter, pair the shirt with a simple cardigan or jacket. Using layers as a way to accessorise a short sleeve shirt opens up one's wardrobe, meaning one can use what one already has, without having to go out and buy more clothing. Slim fitted jackets help to dress up a short sleeve shirt. Paired with jeans and cute high heels, a short sleeve shirt with a dress jacket makes for an ideal outfit for a date night. When paired with a skirt and court shoes, the look may just be the perfect option for the office.

 

Accessorising Men's Short Sleeve Shirts

Men may have a little fewer options when it comes to accessorising men's short sleeve shirts. However, there are a few ways a man can change the style of his outfit without having to change his shirt. A plain knitted scarf gives a great casual or semi-casual look to a short sleeve shirt. Jackets also are an effective way for a man to accessorise his short sleeve shirt. For a formal look, pair the shirt with a suit jacket or blazer style jacket. A military style jacket is ideal for a more casual look.
