There are various stylistic components that can give an item of clothing a premium look. Alongside dramatic silhouettes and heavyweight fabrics, I would argue that unexpected prints are definitely a key factor in elevating a fashion piece. Take this Whistles short-sleeved shirt, for example. I spotted this piece in the brand's new-in section and was instantly drawn to the unusual map print, which I hadn't seen anywhere else on the high street. It easily could've just stepped off the runway.
My suspicions were confirmed when a handful of fashion-savvy people (Angela Scanlon included) posted photos of themselves wearing the shirt and looking pretty stylish. Made from a silk-blend fabric in a cool, boxy fit, this is the sort of top that will instantly elevate your wardrobe basics, from black trousers to casual denim. I would tuck it into jeans and style with Velcro sandals, or I'd layer it over a white tank top and shorts for a more laid-back look.
