An absolute staple, the shirt has seen quite an evolution- from a utilitarian menswear option to the tailored, elevated wardrobe hero that we see today.
The first ever shirts were worn in the medieval times to protect the body from chafing by metal armor. This later evolved into an undershirt that acted as a hygienic barrier to protect expensive clothing during the 19th century. This evolution later iterated the shirt into a tailored essential, worn under blazers. In the 1920s, with the ascension of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel to the fashion scene, gender and class boundaries were broken down. With a more relaxed and contemporary take on womenswear-tight corsets were swapped out for relaxed fit button downs. This transformation liberated women from the discomfort of the past with a far more convenient piece of clothing- one that could be designed with lighter fabrications into a looser fit that allows it’s wearer to move freely. The second World War transformed the zeitgeist of fashion in the 1940s. Owing to the rationing of resources and the trending military inspired styles, shirts made their staple space in women’s wardrobes.
Designer shirts since then have made their way into outfits for almost every occasion. With androgynous fashion taking over, designer shirts can be styled in a range of innovative ways. Tie up an oversized style with flared jeans, tuck in a classic button down with slim trousers, pair a cropped shirt with shorts or add a belt to a long one and wear it as a dress. The options are unlimited with this versatile piece of clothing.
