What comes to your mind when you think of the classic white shirt? Stiff formals? Meetings? Really?! If that’s still the first thing that comes to your mind… then think again!
I absolutely love the classic white shirt! And I think it’s one of the most essential pieces in your wardrobe… but if there’s one place I seldom wear it to… it’s work! Coz when there’s like a million ways to style it and a million other occasions you can wear it to, then why do the stereotypical?
Here’s one of my favorite looks in the white shirt for a long shopping day or an evening out with friends…
Other interesting ways to style the classic white shirt:
• Team it with a pair of flowing culottes in any colour and team it up with pretty elegant heels.
• Wear it with just about any skirt – a mini, midi or a maxi – in plain colours or with prints! My favorite skirts to wear with it are plain pastel midis and maxis or a gorgeous plaid skirt!
• You could even just dawn it on like an open shrug on a summery maxi dress or tie a loose knot in the front!
• Wear it front open over a short denim jumpsuit or over your ripped jeans and a singlet (I do this a lot… you can check out my instagram for pics of this look...)
These are just some of the ways in which I’d wear it… what’s yours?
This Look: A Classic white tucked-in shirt teamed up with a pair of denim shorts for the classy and evergreen white n blue combo. Suede boots from Bata, Firenze and my Louis Vuitton Monogram belt. Super-simple yet quite a head-turner.
