The Perfect White Shirt


Love the classy, chic, effortless yet pulled together look of the classic white shirt. Man tailored, structured, clean & crisp or feminine, ruffled, loose and blousy, they all make quite the statement.

I've been living in a few of them this spring, in particular my newest favorite long, roomy & super soft one that I throw on over a pair of leggins paired with flats. Chic & comfort extreme!

Nothing is as chic as a simple white shirt. The only bad thing is that I'm so fair, I often look totally washed out. Doesn't stop me from wearing them, though!!

The Very Subjective said...

i borrowed one shirt from my friend (man-friend), took it to the sewstress, changed the lenght of sleeves and the width and now i have the perfect white button down shirt.

it is a mistery to me, why can't anyone make a shirt like they make for a man, only make it for a woman?! stupid, stupid industry.

I have so many white shirts in my closet. One of my favourite items of clothing. Makes one feel positively bridal. White shirts always does that to me, I somehow wonder why;-)

And, you are so right, they are perfect for spring. Happy Friday, sweetie!X
