The White Shirt – A Crisp Classic

Most wardrobes have one if not more because it’s so timeless and versatile. I’m talking about the white shirt. We can sit here forever creating look after look, however being able to modify how you wear your shirt can change how your outfit looks altogether.

  • Buttons
    Button up for a contemporary yet sophisticated high neck line. Unbutton an extra button or two and reveal some décolletage with a lace bra adding some extra sexy even if you’re just wearing it with jeans.
  • Sleeves
    Roll the sleeve up and create a ¾ length and you’ve got the perfect trans seasonal top or add some spunk with the Italian or the J Crew sleeve roll which has the cuff exposed a little at the top adding some depth.
  • Collar
    Wear the collar down for a structured look, or pop the collar up a little and create a frame for the neck and face.
  • Tie It
    Instead of tucking your shirt in or letting it hang out tie it up again create some fun and interest or even camouflage your lunch.
  • Make It Pop
    Put on a red lip, the white shirt will complement the look perfectly. What about a statement necklace, the white shirt won’t compete for attention but frame it perfectly.
  • Tuck
    Tuck it in all the way, blouse it a little, leave it out or consider a half tuck for those days when it’s too hard to decide
  • Fit
    Not button popping, but well fitted or relaxed? Do you need to hide those imperfections or are you rocking it?
  • Length
    If the shirt is long it doesn’t mean it’s a shirt dress!

Keep it crisp and have fun with your outfit!
