Last time, our Style File Surprising Stores review featured Mark’s Work Wearhouse. Well, the friendly folks over at MWW kindly supplied me with one of their latest clothing innovations to try for myself. It’s the Perfectly Pressed shirt.
What can possibly be innovative about a shirt? I hear you ask. Drum roll please…this crisp classic does not need ironing! Yes, it’s wash, dry and wear! So exciting, because despite all the times I’ve recommended the plain white shirt as a wardrobe essential, (confession time), I rarely wear one myself. Not because I don’t like the look, au contraire, but because I have an ironing allergy. But, now with the Perfectly Pressed added to my closet, I can practice what I preach.
And, if you’re skeptical as to whether the Perfectly Pressed lives up to its promise. Don’t worry it does. I, the founding member of the anti-ironing squad, can confirm that even after having mine squished in a bag for a few hours, it was ready for action after a short time on a hanger. And, as for the styling…? Don’t worry on that score either, the Perfectly Pressed in sizes XS-XL, is also subtly shaped for us ladies.
To date, I’ve worn mine quite conventionally with jeans or under a business suit. So, here’s a little Style File challenge for urbanmoms members. Tell us in the comments section below, the ways in which you love to wear a classic white shirt. Is it tucked into a pencil skirt, under a vest or as a cover up in the sun? We have 12 Perfectly Pressed shirts to give away and the best 12 ways to wear this wardrobe wonder will WIN ONE. So, share your ideas in the comments below (make sure to include your email!) by Friday, November 28th, and we’ll make sure the winners receive their Perfectly Pressed prior to the Holiday season.
