A white shirt is by far and away the most versatile item in any girls wardrobe. It can be worn from day to night, casual to dressy – it all just depends how you style it. As somewhat of a white shirt aficionado, my personal collection of white shirts is somewhat alarming, however given the versatility of owning just one white shirt – my addiction is totally unnecessary.
If you are going to own just one white shirt, I would recommend something in an oversized cut, no pockets, with a regular button down style and preferably in a linen or thick silk fabric. This type of shirt can be easily dressed up with a skirt and heels or dressed down with blue denim and boots (like how I have styled it below).
I like to style my shirts by exposing one shoulder to create a more feminine feel. I create this look by quite literally buttoning the shirt unevenly. If I had a penny for every time someone told me my shirt was buttoned wrong… Well, lets just say my shirt collection would be ten times its current size… But ya know, #fashun
