Have you ever looked at a garment on a hanger and thought, "What the heck is this contraption??" Then, as if wanting to be proven wrong, you take it to the fitting room and are shocked by how adorable it is on your body? Seeing this Acler deconstructed collar shirt at Garbarini in Denver was one such moment for me. On the hanger, it looked like some kind of straightjacket. But because it was down to $98 from $263, I took a chance and ventured to the fitting room. I was floored by how flattering, versatile and interesting it was when I got it off the hanger! It's proof to never judge a garment by its body-less cover.
It's also proof the deconstructed shirt trend is definitely worth adding to your closet. These tops (and even dresses) take it to the next level. The one I'm wearing bares one shoulder, has an asymmetrical button-up and two sleeves that tie at the waist. It's androgynous and chic. It's so easy to dress up or down for day or night. Here I'm going casual with ankle jeans and nude slides. It'd also look fresh and elegant with a white a-line skirt, white jeans or a pair of frayed jean shorts.
Though this top is sold out online, I've added lots of deconstructed shirt styles below!
