Obsession du jour- Equipment Signature Shirt

I have been coveting an Equipment Shirt for quite some time, so I was beyond excited when my family bought me a gorgeous Shark Grey one for my Birthday from

Equipment Signature Shirt- Shark Grey $178
Since it arrived I have been completely obsessed- it is the most beautiful light silk fabric, a divine colour, and so comfortable to wear. This an absolute wardrobe essential, I already don't know what I did without it. 

Equipment Signature Shirts come in a wide range of colours- have a look at, or Take some inspiration from the uber chic Carine Roitfield (below)- she really does know how to work an Equipment shirt. Carine's long term partner, Christian Restoin created the brand and the iconic shirt for the first time in 1975! His inspiration was iconic Hollywood stars Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall.... Tres Chic.

  1. So glad that you like it! Love the Shark Grey colour. I think I may have to get one in Rock.

  2. What about the fit? I'm unable to decide between S or M, I'm a 4/6 US, 10UK

  3. Hi Birkinmary,

    Thanks for your comment! The style is oversized, so I would consider how you are going to wear the blouse. If you are mostly going to wear it tucked in to pants/ skirts go for the S otherwise there will be a lot of fabric. However if you want to wear it loose go for the M so that you have the extra length.

    Hope that this helps- thanks for visiting my blog!
