THE LONG & SHIRT OF IT
The long shirt makes an appearance in some of the most forward-thinking collections for next fall, underscoring the current movement toward modesty as well as renewed interest in work-appropriate clothes. The silhouettes are mostly slim yet easy, with extra-long sleeves emphasizing the laid-back feel. Designers showed these in geometric prints or solids, and added novelty in the form of super-elongated long collars, draped effects or zip closures. The season’s silky scarf accessorizes, either casually wrapped or knotted under the collar to create a soft necktie.
