How To: style your white shirt
Ladies, let’s talk about the humble white shirt…
It’s a wardrobe staple that, if styled correctly, can take you from the boardroom to the beach and back again in time for a glass of bubbles! It’s versatile, cool (literally) and timeless and there is a shape to suit everyone. So, here’s how to style it:
The Oversized White Shirt
For that ‘cool girl’ look, you can’t go past the oversized shirt. It’s a great option for a hot summer’s day, tucked into jeans with the sleeves ruched up. Style it through to the evening worn over leather pants and pumps. Good news too – there’s no more need to steal your white shirt from the guys! We’ve got just the right style for you in store.
The Pussy Bow White Shirt
We’re all familiar with the pussy bow blouse, but have you seen a pussy bow shirt? Well, today is the day! Featuring a relaxed, bracelet length sleeve and removable white tie cut on the diagonal, this is so easy to style for multiple looks. Push the sleeves up and tuck into a midi skirt for a feminine, playful effect. You can also wear this under a tailored suit for a polished twist! If you’re wearing it with wide leg pants, wrap the tie around your waist and cinch it with a tight, sharp bow. Your options are endless.
The Classic White Shirt Hack
Keep your fashion game on point and breathe new life into your classic white shirt with this simple trick. First things first – you should have a tailored, collared white cotton shirt in your wardrobe. This hack allows you to wear your shirt as if it is a wrap shirt- a very on trend look this season. What you want to do is button up the first few buttons at the top, then tuck one side of the shirt tightly towards the opposite hip. Repeat this step with the other side of your shirt. Voila! A new look with a fresh feel!
The Linen White Shirt
Our Brisbane summer calls for breezy linen shirts! Some days, nothing else will do. Investing in a relaxed silhouette that features a smart collar will allow you to style it in various ways. Try tucking in half the shirt into your skinny jeans with sneakers for a sporty edge. For a day at the beach, wear it unbuttoned and loose over your favourite swimmers and a floppy hat. With your high waisted bottoms, bring it together in a knot at the belt line and cuff the sleeves. It’s casual chic at it’s best.
