The white shirt; a holy grail in the world of fashion, the staple to your wardrobe, and an essential to pack no matter where you jet-set too. It is undoubtedly one of the most versatile pieces you could own – whether you choose to style it up or down, there’s a myriad of ways to do so. With that being said, if you’re stumped for ideas, here’s a little inspo-list I’ve put together for you!
1. Tie over a slip dress
This combines an essential with a well-known trend in fashion. The slip dress. Take your favourite slip on and tie your unbuttoned white shirt over the top of it to create the cutest date-night look. Throw on a pair of mules, and you have an outfit that’ll get the heads turning – not to mention, it’s hella Instagram worthy!
2. Pair with a neutral-toned suit
Need something a little more proper? Maybe you’ve got a work do or a classy night out with the girls? Then this one’s for you. It’s no secret that the suit has been an essential this year. We’ve seen this season host an array of colours, from neon pink suits down to simple black – but I would recommend pairing it with a neutral sand toned set. Gorgeous.
3. Layer under your favourite chunky knit
It’s not summer just yet, so style your white shirt under your favourite chunky knit sweater to keep you safe from the chills! Chuck it with a pair of tights or jeans, and another wardrobe essential – a pair of black chunky boots. And don’t forget the accessories, they’ll instantly liven this lookup.
4. Leather it up
Faux leather jackets, leather-look leggings, leather shorts – whatever it is, leather is one material that never fails the white shirt. My favourite way to style this? Layer the white shirt over a cute bralette and pair it with dark grey jeans, boots and – of course – the holy grail leather jacket.
5. Denim Baby Okay the last one is a classic. Get your denim mom jeans out and pair this white shirt with them for a casual yet stylish look. I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with this look – dress it up with heels and jewellery for a night out, or dress it down by unbuttoning a few and popping on your favourite pair of comfy trainers.
No matter what way you decide to style it, just don’t forget to accessorise! Either way, I hope this has given you some sort of inspiration to take away with you.
