Read on for ideas on how to wear a white shirt for work, date night, or the weekend.
The Boyfriend Classic Cotton Shirt
An oversized boyfriend cut cotton poplin white shirt is a go to casual piece if you like relaxed shapes and comfort. Roll the sleeves and slip into your favourite skinny jeans, flat, sneakers or even heels everything goes. The oversized shape is also perfect to take to the beach. Wear it over your bikini loose or tied up. Jewellery and other accessories will complement the look and make it even more stylish.
The White Linen Shirt
Hot days in the city call for polished casual outfits that won't make you work up a sweat. A classic linen white shirt goes with pretty much everything and its a great way to look chic when you're shopping with friends, or running errands.
The White Silk Shirt
Contrary to the outdated belief that silk shirts are formal wear, we believe a classic white silk shirt can be worn with anything from sharp tailoring to distressed denim. Silk satin, or crepe de chine, slightly loose silhouettes are an absolute must for every minimal wardrobe. Leave a few buttons undone by the collar and tuck one end into high wasted jeans or a leather skirt and you have the perfect outfit for any occasion.
The Tux Shirt
This classic style originally reserved only for aristocrrates and immortalised by Marlene Dietrich is making fashionable return and changing its perception as a black tie event only piece. Tuxedo shirts naturally feature pleated bib and French cuffs. Wear yours under a Le Smoking suit to parties or take a more relaxed approach and style it over jeans with the cuffs undone.
A classic essential that work for a variety of occasions. Knot the pussy-bow ties at the neck or leave them to drape. Wear yours tucked into a flowy skirt to the office or out to dinner. But don't reserve your pussybow blouse just for client meetings or afternoons in the boardroom - it looks equally as chic with jeans and mules on the weekend. Knot the pussy-bow ties at the neck or leave them to drape.
