When it comes to fashion and style, certain items are way above the latest trends. These key wardrobe staples never go out of style and are instant game changers if styled the right way. On the top of that list stands the humble white shirt. A classic white button-down completes every wardrobe. Its unflinching versatility can help you increase your outfit choice multifold. You can either dress it up or dress it down, work it towards the edgier side or a more feminine sophisticated side, accessorize it or go minimal – the options, really, are endless. And which ever way you plan to go along with it, there is no going wrong.
So if you should ever find yourself in a style rut (which happens more often than not, yes we’ve been there), trust your white shirt to work like magic to help you put together a fab ensemble.
Here are 10 ways you can style the classic white shirt (plain or printed). Go berzerk!
1. Pair it with a bright midi skirt and minimal heels
2. Or a colour coordinated mini
A white shirt gives you the freedom to play with almost every colour. You gotta take advantage of that.
3. Play up your basics
Really! This is your coupon to look effortlessly cool. A white shirt teamed with plain jeggings, cool kicks and a cap! Indie chic right there!
4. Scarf it up
Alexa Chung and Leandra Medine’s doing it. Need we say more?
5. Slip on a dress on top
6. Or a sleeveless cape/blazer
7. Or even a dungaree (if you’re still not over it!)
8. Add some pop to the classic shirt+trench combo by splashing a bold colour
9. Switch your skinnies with a pair of flared pants instead.
10. Don’t be scared to go all white.
