Wardrobe Staples: The White Shirt


One of my recommended wardrobe staples is the 'classic white shirt'.  There’s always time and space (in my wardrobe) for white shirts, especially a classic and timeless one. Never out of fashion and suitable for business or pleasure, it’s the ultimate all-season and all-occasion wardrobe essential.  A tailored white shirt is a must in your closet. 

Whether you knot it, roll up the sleeves, pair it with jeans or a killer full skirt, tuck it in, or top it with a blazer or comfy sweater, here are a few stylish ways to wear a crisp white button-down this season!

Liven up your white shirt ensemble with a bold pattern or print skirt or pant. Lively prints are big on trend, so this is an easy way to work the trend. Be as daring as you like - nothing clashes with a white shirt.

White shirts were practically made for layering. Whether you style one under a jumper for colder days or use it to smarten up a strappy dress or jumpsuit, you can't go wrong. 

Let your shirt do the talking by keeping it simple in a monochrome outfit. Go for black or dark navy bottoms and accessories to accompany a crisp white shirt.

Accessorised your outfit with a black bow tied at the neck of your white shirt to keep it interesting and on days when you need a bit of sass.

White shirts and denim go hand in hand. Tuck your favourite white shirt into a pair of jeans or a denim skirt for an instantly cool look. Go for this season's flared denim jeans or a lighter bleached look for the summer months.

Add instant interest to a white shirt with a bold statement necklace. Try either a collar necklace or a pendant on a long chain.

A white shirt can be dressed up or down depending on how you pair it. For smarter days, wear your shirt under a tailored jacket or coat jacket of your choice.

If you want your statement accessories, such as a bright pair of shoes or a leopard print bag, to pop, you need to keep the rest of your outfit neutral. Pair your white shirt with whites, creams or pale pinks to let your accessories take centre stage.

A white shirt balances out a high waisted skirt and makes for an elegant night time look.

Here are a few looks that will inspire you to wear your white shirt this season.
