Wardrobe Staples

The classic white shirt is an essential garment in any woman’s wardrobe.

In the 1920s Coco Chanel shocked the fashion world by discarding the corset and wearing a loose white shirt. In the 1950s, Audrey Hepburn wore a white collared shirt with rolled sleeves and turned up collar in Roman Holiday, making it iconic with a timeless femininity.

What to look for when buying a white shirt? Choose a style that suits your body shape, is well made, and has the right shade to flatter your complexion.

This season wear it;

  • Loose and sheer for a relaxed styling.
  • Fitted, sleeves rolled up with denim for a classic look.  
  • Teamed back with embellished skirts or tuxedo trousers for after dark.
