    there are lots of these kicking around and they look excellent - I traced the trend back and I think it started with Prada A/W 08. I remember a shot in Vogue Paris with a model wearing one of the Prada shirts with black leather trousers and lanvin pumps.....

    I have just got a new macbook and I don't know how to copy the pics onto this thread.

    There are some powder blue shirts at Chloe s/s 10 and Isabel Marant a/w 10....but I can't copy the pics.

    sorry I am really ****.....

    i kind of love this :heart:

    in the last season or two i've been much more drawn toward mens shirts/button down shirts in general...
    whether they are slouchy or fitted i think they're great...

    i think the flat front, no buttons on the girl above is really interesting... i like that look.

    i like the androgyny of it and think it works particularly well on girls with smaller chests...

    Ever since that French Vogue editorial, I've been lusting over mens shirts like that. I just love how the outfit looks so effortless & cool yet minimal with the shirt & the leather pants. My favorite use of the shirt has to be at N21 Alessandro Dell'Acqua for the fall/winter 2010 season

    I've always liked wearing men shirts with skirts.

    I love these:heart::heart:

    I've been meaning to create a thread on the buttonless ones but I didn't know how to search for it.. are they just called buttonless shirts?

    I saw one of these shirts quickly at H&M a couple of weeks ago and I've been thinking about it ever since.. and when I went back it was gone:cry:

    i love the look, but prefer the shirt to be less pressed, more worn, wrinkled.

    I like this look on other people, but it's hard for me to do because of my unfortunate bustiness. If I get a larger shirt I look tubby and a slimmer one makes me look like a stripper and the shirt gapes. I have to buy one and then get it tailored.

    I love this look so much. I love the whole tailored mens shirt look, but hadn't come across the buttonless look before. It's gorgeous.

    I know what you mean - I am pretty busty but I like how wearing this shirt de-emphasises this aspect. One the flip side, it does make me look a bit bigger because the shirt de-emphasises my waist as well. I like the overall relaxed look though - I usually wear it with super skinny jeans/latex leggings/bandage skirts.

    Here is mine:

    I love this trend so much. Mens shirts seem to nearly always look better on girls for some reason... Loving the look with the tan high waisted pencil skirt.
