How to wear the white shirt

Probably one of the most sophisticated, versatile and elegant pieces of clothing any woman can own is the white shirt. They’re perfect for women who still want to feel stylish, yet look mature and grown-up too.

All hail the simple and classic, white shirt.

If you haven’t got a white shirt in your wardrobe then we’d definitely recommend investing in one. Not only are they chic and demure, but they also go with everything. No joke. Think jeans, trousers of all colours, skirts, even under dresses. Perfection.

If you’re currently into seeking a more classic-style wardrobe/capsule approach, then you should definitely have a crisp, white shirt in there. Go for a longer or over-sized loose style and try to invest in something of good quality; it will last you and will wash well.

They are perfect for work, with a pencil skirt or black trousers, as well as for daytime and weekends, i.e. under a sweater, or paired with leather trousers for drinks at night with friends.

Style tip – roll up the sleeves and wear lots of jewellery to make it feel more dressed up and stylish. Or undo buttons and add lots of necklaces underneath.

    I think I’ll have to get on Pintrest as I have no idea how I would style a white shirt, could I even pull off a look like that? I don’t dress fancy but I do like to look smart and put together.
