Ah the humble white shirt. Always on the basics list. But let’s face it – it can be a wee bit boring. Here are eight ideas to spice up your basic white shirt.
- Add a tie
The addition of pussy bow amps up a plain shirt and it’s easy as grabbing some thick ribbon and tying it around your neck.
- Add a statement necklace
A crisp white shirt is the perfect foil for a fancy necklace.
- Add a singlet
Adding a singlet over the top is a cute way to add some warmth and interest.
- Add a cropped top
A cropped top immediately adds a bit of quirky fun to your look. This works equally well with cropped jumpers.
- Add a bustier
Undoing a few buttons and wearing a bustier gives a white shirt a whole new, evening look.
- Wrap a man’s shirt
Light on evening options? Grab your man’s white shirt and style it up a lá Audrey Hepburn. I think letting the cuffs down lends a I-don’t-care sexy flair.
A white shirt can work just as beautifully in a casual setting
- Under a casual t-shirt
Pep up a casual shirt and short combination with a hint of white peeking through.
- White shirt and denim
Pairing white with denim always looks fresh. Works just as well (maybe better) with a half tuck and jeans.
