{Fashion Monday} Styling a frill trim long sleeved shirt 

long sleeve shirt

Last week whilst I was enjoying some retail therapy when I stumbled upon a lovely long sleeved frill trim shirt in yellow. Not sure why but somehow I fell in love with the shirt and thought it would be perfect for work. I have preached many times about how I am loving adding colour to my wardrobe. This yellow grill trim shirt is the second shirt in its colour on my wardrobe (the third is being donated). And whilst I had no clue how I was gonna style the shirt I knew I would love it either way.

Spring has sprung but there are days when it feels like winter is still lurking but it’s to be expected with British weather. So I figured wearing long sleeved shirts is still in fashion and one can do damage with them. The menopausal British weather is one to watch with a pinch of salt regardless of what the Met office says. One minute you could be enjoying the sunshine and next you’re running for cover or even need to cover up. Hence why this yellow frill trim long sleeved shirt from New Look is exactly what is required.

What I love about the shirt is it’s light in texture and very fitting depending on your size. I choose 14 due to my bust area and love how it doesn’t tug in my armpits nor crease on the front. The product description from New look is;

  • Rounded neckline
  • Frill trim
  • Simple long sleeves
  • Button back fastening
  • Crepe texture
  • Casual fit that is true to size

Styling a yellow frill trim long sleeved shirt 

For me styling this shirt was a no brainer and decided it would look real good on something black. When most of us dare to try colours, we don’t go all out instead we calm it down and black does that. Yes this shirt pops on its own but the black helps it to be more digestible for many to dare. I thought of two outfits I could try with this top and already tested one out. And that is pairing with a skirt for a date or pairing with black denim for work or running errands. However you choose to style this frill trimmed shirt, remember that your entire outfits focal point is the shirt itself. Not wanting to take too much attention away from the shirt, with the skirt I paired with half boots. And for the denim jeans I paired with ankle boots because it’s spring with a chance of rain in my neck of the woods.

How would you style a yellow frill trim long sleeved shirt? Is yellow a staple in your closet?

  • The black boot is right up my alley in the style department. And, I like that it has a bit of a heel. I used to have a yellow shirt a long time ago that I really liked. But now that I think of it, I don’t think yellow is really in my closet much.

  • Ahhh retail therapy. The term my wife uses about once a week when she comes home with a crapload of bags in her hands.. lol

  • Such a lovely outfit you’ve got here. I always have a hard time putting together ruffles and other pieces from my closet.

  • Manouk van Zwam

    Yellow is such a nice color! It certainly gives a spring/summer feeling although it might not always feel that way!

  • FussFreeJen

    I am liking the frills of ruffles of the season very much. That said, some are a little much, and not too flattering. But this one is fab, casual enough for everyday wear. Great outfit.

  • Homemade for Elle

    Thanks for the tips! The whole outfit put together is perfect!

  • Lorraine

    Cute shirt! It’s definitely spring and we are all bringing out very bright and vibrant colors. As the temperature increases our clothes will become even bolder and brighter.

  • That shirt is so cute! I love spring time, the colors of clothes are all so bright and cheery!

  • I’m so bad about adding color to my wardrobe! I love the yellow top though and would love to try to add that color to my wardrobe.


    These are all great picks. I really love the looks of the black skirt.

  • I don’t usually wear yellow but I can imagine how it’s going to look with a black skort or black pants. It’s a stand out! I love the shoes that you picked as well.

  • Krystel Seijo

    Loving the style of that skirt. I stick to neutral colors a lot with a mix of dark blue in.

  • The yellow frill shirt is love! Does it come in short sleeve too??

  • Belema Ronabere

    I have exactly one yellow piece of clothing and I wear it only when it feels right and when I do, i love it. I always go to black to style it but once i wore it with a burgundy and color blocked it. It looked amazing.

  • Melanie Williams

    Not thought about yellow, but love this colour and style. Easy to wear day or evening too. 🙂 x

  • lisa prince

    oh i am loving the mustard shade its a colour i would wear

  • Jaime Nicole

    The yellow shirt is SO cute but I’m totally obsessing over those earrings. They go with this outfit perfectly!

  • Rebecca Swenor

    These are all awesome items indeed. I actually love this yellow frill trim long sleeved shirt. Yellow and oranges have been my colors lately for my clothes. The half boots I love in that style. Thanks for sharing this awesome outfit.

  • Natalia Molinero Mingorance

    really nice outfit! I love a black look with a strong color to break the monotony 😀

  • My Teen Guide

    The blouse looks pretty, although yellow is not my color of choice. I’d let my niece know about this cute long sleeved blouse. I know she’ll love it with black skinny jeans and those mustard colored mules. 🙂

  • I like that yellow pop of color. I think it makes the outfit less boring, yet still professional.

  • David Elliott

    Yellow is not really my color in any way. My daughter on the other hand looks quite beautiful in it. Then again, my daughter looks beautiful in most things.

  • T-Nicole Johnson

    This post is really helpful. I love the frill trim look. Love the jacket pictured.

  • Marysa

    This is such a nice combination! I need to do some updating with my wardrobe. These are definitely some great ideas.

  • Jennifer Hazel Quisenberry

    I love the soft yellow! And I like the structure of the blouse so that the ruffles accentuate the blouse’s seams. Here’s a question. I was, well, blessed in the chest as they say. How do you think this silhouette would look on me? I’m always a little nervous to try things I see online if I can’t try them on in person.

  • Deimarys Colon

    I am more of a pants and jeans kinda gal! Love the skirt though and that leather jackets it’s just perfect for spring!

  • These are some really nice clothes. I’m not much of a shopper, but sometimes I think I could be.

  • LaToyia Dennis

    Yellow is hot this spring. I saw a cute yellow nail polish that I loved. This is cute!

  • These are some lovely clothes, its been ages since I have worn yellow but this top looks nice

  • Melanie Edjourian

    I wish I could get away with wearing yellow. I bought a yellow dress a while back and my hubby said it looked really bad against my pasty pale skin. I was gutted as it was a pretty dress. Love that black coat though ,now that I can wear! Frills seem to be in this season.

  • I’ve never been a big fan of frills. I have to say though, this yellow one is really appealing to me. I like that you kept the other pieces more neutral too. They blend nicely together.

  • Briana Marie

    I love reading these style/fashion posts. Yellow is one of my fave colors to wear. I’m stocking up on more yellow apparel for this spring and summer.

  • I love frills this season! I like the way that you would pair it with mules, which is one of my go-to shoes as of the moment. 💛 I’d pair it with jeans as well!

  • tara pittman

    Such cute clothes! Spring has left here as we are in the 80’s so these will have to wait until fall for me

  • The yellow frill shirt is the perfect way to inject some vitamin D into your spring look and I love the shoes too x

  • Candy Kage

    Yellow and black is a must combination. i have a yellow top that I love to wear it has 3/4 sleeves and is perfect for spring weather. Can’t go wrong with a great looking yellow top.

  • Laura Dove

    Oh I love this colour scheme! Yellow is such a beautiful colour for spring and so flattering too!

  • Doria Miyata Murphy

    Cute! Spring is so fickle here, yesterday it was insanely high for April (we hit mid-80s) and the rest of the week it will be in the 40s and 50s. I definitely still have time for a few warmer pieces 😉

  • I love that jacket! I tend to wear a lot of blacks and greys, so this list is nice for me. I prefer shoes that have heals be a bit more on the chunky side. Can’t get away with much less like I did when I was younger!

  • Baby Isabella

    Our favourite colour is black so teaming it with yellow is a great suggestions to make us more spring like! 😉

  • Deepa Malhotra Gandhi

    Lovely..I loved this look. Yellow is my favourite colour and this look is great. The skirt can be use dwith other things too.

  • Christy Maurer

    I’m not sure how well I pull off yellow with my coloring, but I love what you paired with it! The weather here has been iffy too. I’m really hoping that spring is here for real now though.

  • I love the leather jacket. I wish it wasn’t so warm in Texas all the time so that I could put on a jacket and not stick to the leather!

  • I do have a few yellow things in my closet. Not a whole lot though. I have no idea how I’d style a yellow frill shirt. I’m terrible with fashion.

  • Robin Rue

    That is a really great look! I am loving that black jacket – very sexy!

  • Alli Smith

    That yellow shirt does look amazing with black. I love how you can dress it up or down. Those earrings are so cute!
