A WARDROBE ESSENTIAL: THE CLASSIC WHITE SHIRT

Classic White Shirt

Ask any stylist about the essential items every women should have in their wardrobe and you will always find a “classic white shirt” on the list.   Why is this?   Well for one thing, it is truly a classic.  A white shirt will never go in or out of fashion – it always has it place.   There are also so many different ways of wearing and styling a white shirt which means  it suits all body shapes and all ages.

It doesn’t matter if you prefer a more tailored look or are a more relaxed casual style because it is so easy to dress up or down the white shirt.   The shirt can be worn with jeans and a blazer, but it is also just as appropriate with a pencil skirt and heels.  Here are some examples of how you can wear the classic white shirt:

I could go on and on showing you examples of the gorgeous white shirts that are available at the moment, but if you don’t have one in your wardrobe it is something I would strongly recommend you buy.    This is an investment piece so don’t let price be the only guide (although you can get just about everything on sale these days), be sure it is flattering and good quality because it is a piece you will have in your “Wardrobe of Greatness” for many years to come.
