036. | Summer Fashion Essential: The Express Portofino Shirt

Today, I'm breaking away from my normal beauty-centric posts and sharing one of my favorite fashion pieces for summer. The Express Portofino Shirt has quickly become one of the most worn items in my closet. I purchase the majority of my clothing from Express. I like that they have a large selection of classic pieces, with a few trendier items thrown into the lookbook each season. Plus, the clothing is high quality and reasonably priced. Keep reading for details and photos of the Portofino Shirt!

The Express Portofino Shirt is a modern twist on the classic button down. Made of a semi-sheer crepe fabric, the shirt can easily transform from office appropriate to happy hour attire. The relaxed, yet still tailored fit makes the Portofino Shirt so versatile. The sheer fabric is breathable for summer, but is conservative enough to wear in a variety of situations. I like tucking these shirts into a pencil skirt with pumps during the work week. On weekends, the shirt looks great paired with jeans, shorts, and even miniskirts. The Portofino Shirt comes in twenty four different solid colors, as well as a variety of prints that change from season to season. I'm sharing my four most summery options below.
