The Essential: Sheer Shirt

Thought I would kick off February with a new Essential post. This is a piece that really found a way into our wardrobes in 2011, but doesn't look like it's going anywhere for some time.  Easy to wear, but a b*gger to iron - it's the sheer shirt.  You can wear it all year round, pair it up with loud/bright/trend pieces or with other essentials like skinny jeans, leather pants or denim shorts.  Regardless, you need one - buy in cream or a neutral tone to make it all the more handy. 

Where to buy one:
You can buy these cheaply, but if you pay peanuts you'll get monkeys so don't expect a bargain to hold together as long as an investment...

Zara - mine is from here, and I have worn it to death.  They have a great selection all year around and are usually between £30 and £50
Acne - If you are looking for an investment purchase then Acne will never fail you to ensure you get 'price per wear' value.  Here is a lovely piece in their store now for £170.
Reiss - would be criminal not to mention these guys for such an essential piece - it's what the brand are so good at doing
Oasis - I also spied a great couple from Oasis last week, here and here.

I love them, last s/s you couldn't buy any kind of shirt or blouse without it being sheer so I'm glad they are back again!

It's my wish list item for 2012, but I'm so so so picky... Loved a few so far, but most of them are made of poly. x
