PERFECT FOR YOU: How to style your white shirt for a day-to-night look

Posted on: August 10, 2012

Step into the new season by going back to basics with a must-have white shirt. It’s one of those pieces that automatically works with everything. Ruffle fronts, a pussy bow, chain embellishment and belt details have helped take this most humble and hard working of pieces into a more fashionable realm. But you simply cannot go wrong with a classic crisp white shirt that flatters your shape to perfection. “Crisp” is important when it comes to a borrowed-from-the-boys classic, which is why I’ve included this video link from TM Lewin about how to iron a shirt. That is if you’re not going the dry cleaning route or the steaming route (which smoothes but doesn’t iron out)…or if you’re not really pre-occupied with the Olympics and are looking for something to do.

With crisp white shirt in hand here are a few looks you might like. Dress up a pair of Acne straight leg high waisted jeans, with this  Zara trim detail shirt £29.99, a fabulous throw on and go DKNY faux fur gilet and these vampy Jimmy Choo heels. A pair of high heel courts, your favourite flats or an ankle biker boot would look great too.

Go for a glamorous evening look with this long black Maison Martin Margiela skirt  and one of the season’s must-have waist-cinching belts like this piece from Mango. Finally, inject a cheeky flash of colour into your outfit with these deep red Casadei high heels or any other bright coloured shoe.  Natalie X
