It’s an absolute wardrobe must-have you more or less can’t do without – and pretty much can’t go wrong with, either! Be it chiffon, cotton or linen, there are a thousand and one ways to dress up or down your basic white shirt. Here are the top 5!
WEAR IT WITH A CARDIGAN
Pair your button down white blouse with a bright cardigan tied in a knot at the waist, a pair of distressed jeans, an embellished belt, and you’re good to go!
GO BUTCH CHIC IN A SUIT
Invest in a good pair of fitting tuxedo trousers, tuck in your white shirt, and add on a statement necklace and classic pumps. A high bun will also up your outfit game!
GO FOR THE CLASSIC COMBO
You can’t fail with the classic white-shirt-and-blue jeans duo. It just works! Try pairing your white blouse with distressed blue jeans rolled up at the ankle, instead and bright-coloured heels, or a simple pair of nude flats.
PAIR WITH A PINAFORE
Tuck your white shirt into a classic black pinafore, or to mix things up with a checked or striped one. This outfit will look great with a pair of black closed toe shoes!
DRESS IT UP WITH A STYLISH BOW TIE (yes, you read that right)
Wear a playful bow tie around the collar of your white shirt; polka dots, sequins, stripes… let your personal style come through! You could team this combo with a fun flared skirt, for ultimate chicness.
