How To Style A Gingham Linen Shirt 2 Ways

As the weather is finally shifting to warmer, I did my closet cleanout and am constantly adding some new pretty pieces to my closet now! With that being said, I am so thrilled to share with you my recent finds for spring from UNIQLO.


UNIQLO is known by super affordable pieces in amazing great quality. Because last month UNIQLO has launched the second store in Seattle, I had to go back there again to do a little shopping. My favorite prints at the moment is definitely polka dots and ginghams. So this adorable linen gingham shirt immediately caught my eyes and I love it so much!!! Did I tell you that yellow is my favorite spring color? You can’t go wrong with this bright vitamine color this spring!

On the previous post, I showed you how you can style a simple bratop in two ways and whenever I shop a piece either in stores or online, I always try to picture in my head weather or not I can rock the piece in at least 2 ways so that I won’t waste it by ending up wearing only one time. That’s why I’d love to feature another “1 piece in 2 ways” blog post today and here are 2 ways you can style this pretty gingham linen shirt.

The most chic and effortless way to style a shirt is absolutely pairing with jeans. So I decided to style the shirt in different bottoms - skirt and shorts - to give you fresh options.
For the first look, I wanted to create the look that is feminine and charming. I picked this cute chiffon pleated skirt at the store. It’s so soft and airly! Then paired with these denim oxford platforms ( Aren’t they just so pretty?!) Instantly making a perfect spring color-blocking style.

I personally like wearing a shirt knotted to make like a cropped top and show one shoulder for a more flirty look.
I am wearing UNIQLO AIRism bratop as my inner! This top has been also my favorite - the softness is incredible, and the soft cups creates alluring bustline shihulette. It’s such a perfect inner piece that everyone needs this spring and summer. To finish this look, I added a straw bucket bag with the pom pom details.

Because the first look is more girly and playful, I wanted the 2nd look with this shirt to be sophisticated but still relaxed.
I swapped the skirt for paperbag waist shorts. The paperbag waistline with the bow is so flattering, comfortable and, of course, fashion forward, isn’t it? Yellow and olive color combo creates the nice earthy touch.
I untied the knot and tucked the shirt in. Or you can wear the shirt unbuttoned for more a loose fit. To make this look more trendy, I grabbed a net tote bag. This cheap-and-chic bag is a must spring bag. ( You can literally get this bag for as little as $13!) With this look, I am ready to go from running errands to weekend brunch with my bestie!

Last but not least, I am currently obsessing over a scarf hairstyle. Don’t you think my bun style is much cuter with the vintage scarf?! It really compliments those two different looks so well, sweet and chic!!
