Iconic white shirts, I love them and I have found yet another one I adore. Growing up when I was a teenager I was always diving down my dads wardrobe and pinching a white shirt. I think most women of my age wore their parent’s shirts tied up at the waist or over a boob-tube, don’t judge me…. I’m a child of the 80’s after all. I think that’s where my love of an oversized shirt started from. I must have about twenty but they all vary in size and style, I may be a white shirt hoarder but I really don’t care. The thing is the white shirt is so easy to wear, whether I’m strolling through Covent Garden or having a catch up and a coffee with my friends, my white shirt always seems to appear …..Well one of them anyway.
I normally go for the oversized look, which is so easy to wear and looks just effortless.
An oversized shape also stops it from looking too corporate. And even though it’s quite an oversized silhouette, it’s still really flattering if worn correctly. I have been known to splurge on a good white shirt that I have fallen in love with in the past. I love the brand Anne Fontaine and Im guilty of having a few. The high-street always has fabulous white shirts and Zara have a couple of great styles throughout the seasons.
Once you’ve got a staple white shirt, make your next buy a little bit different. Find one that has some interesting detailing. That could be bell sleeves or a fabric that is slightly different. That’s the reason I have so many, there are so many variations of the style.
This new addition to my white shirt wardrobe is from ASOS and I just love it. I travelled up for meetings last week and had drinks with friends after and I must have been asked 20 times “Where did you get that shirt?” The off the shoulder style means you can dress it up or down and the wrap waist is quite flattering.
There’s nothing a white shirt doesn’t work with. From prints, skirts to slim jeans and a blazer you name it, it works!
