There are a few items that you really NEED in your closet…a great pair of jeans, a cashmere pullover - preferable in grey - a lightweight city puffer, a Breton stripe tee, and the most important? The perfect white shirt. It can be polished, it can be sexy, it can be relaxed, it can be layered, the possibilities for a white shirt are really endless.
It’s not just your husband’s white shirt these days (although, you should def snag that one too and wrap it up like Carolyn Kennedy) with countless fabrications - we love the juxtaposition of a tailored shirt in cotton jersey - to every length and silhouette you can think of. Slim, silky and stretchy for under your sweaters, boxy, crisp and cropped to pair with high waist trousers, and sheer, (slightly) wrinkled and breezy to throw over your swimsuit.
Don’t limit how you wear your white shirt! Think outside the box and put it under a structured strapless or slinky slip dress for a high-fashion but fully functional look. Channel your inner Audrey and tuck it into midi skirt with neck scarf and espadrilles or go full 80’s and pair an oversized version with vintage style jeans and penny loafers for the easiest (and chicest) outfit ever.
It’s a wardrobe staple you might not have known you needed, but you certainly won’t be able to live without.
