The White Shirt Edit

A neutral surface and the basis of a wardrobe – according to many-a-style manual.

There is something powerful about a white shirt, it’s not normally a style which can scream fun and personality but I think that the fashion industry has evolved and now with sun out it’s a perfect time to have that day to night outfit ready in the wardrobe. White is a perfect summer colour. Not only does it go with everything (shoes, accessories, bags – literally everything!) but it’s actually a lot easier to wear than you might realise.

I’ve had this white shirt for a while from H&M and love the silky, luxurious feel it gives to my wardrobe. Despite being longer at the back, I still prefer it tucked in with a black or tan belt depending on the choice of bottom.31

Jeans, black trousers, denim skirt there are so many options to see this shirt dressed up or dressed down. What’s more it’s not plain white. I have really struggled to find the perfect plain white shirt for myself (although there are plenty about) so when I saw this with a stripe detail to it, I knew it was a perfect addition to my wardrobe.

From super frilly to ruffled elegance and an accent of colour there are some beautiful white shirts out there at the moment, view my favourites on my White Shirt Edit Pinterest Board.
