Poplin Shirts: How To Style Them This Summer

As I’ve been starting to put together my Spring and Summer wardrobe, I have received so much inspiration lately from Pinterest and can’t help but want a Poplin or oversized button up top now. I’ve seen them styled in so many different ways from going super casual for a day on the beach over your swimsuit, or dressing them up with heels for dinner. It’s a look that you need to take advantage of and the best part about this is that it’s very affordable.

I’ve seen so many different colors and linen versions of these tops at Zara and H&M so get on it now before the colors are sold out when summer begins. I know this is going to be something that will stay on trend for a while now and not something that will go away because it’s a classy top and the variety of ways you can style them is endless. In this post, you’ll find 5 different ways that you can style a Poplin shirt and oversized button up shirt for the summer season ahead of us.

Swimsuit Cover Up

After you’re done having a day out in the sun, swimming with friends, and are ready to grab some lunch, having this as a cover up is not only cute and classy, but also chic. These shirts also come in so many different styles and colors so you can easily get one to match your swimsuit for the day and will look so put together but casual. I definitely want to get a couple of these as well for the summer.

Casual Day Out

The best part about these shirts is that you can bring them in from summer to any other season during the year and layer them up. If you’re having a casual day out, you can easily throw this over a tank top and some pants or shorts with sneakers, sunglasses, and a bag! It’s a look what seems way more put together than it actually is so it’s definitely worth the investment.


Whether it’s with jeans, ripped ones, mom jeans, or short jeans, there are endless ways to style this top. You could also make these tops from something very casual such as with sneakers, or to something more dressy with heels and jeans as well. This is also a look that you will be seeing all over instagram for the following months from your favorite fashion influencers.
