Style 101 : the white collared shirt

header blog.jpg

Androgynous and timeless, the crisp white shirt is always a good outfit idea. Always. Sharon Stone confirmed that fact at the 1998 Oscars, to which she fearlessly wore a white shirt, borrowed from her husband no less, tucked into a luxurious Vera Wang ball skirt.

Here are some styling ideas to make this your staple for any occasion, big or small.


UNDER A SWEATER 

Leave the hem hanging out for an effortlessly casual effect.

Pro tip : Slip on a fitted tank top between the sweater and the shirt to even out the shirt, for a smoother look.

UNDER A CARDIGAN

This look can be overly busy of you forget to roll up the sleeves. To do so successfully, roll up the cardigan first, then the shirt, but not both at the same time.

OVERSIZED, WITH BLUE JEANS

Don’t forget to tuck in the hem of your shirt at the front to highlight the waist and balance everything out. This look works best with an less structured shirt, meaning the collar doesn’t have to be reinforced.

LONG, WITH LEGGINGS

Hello comfort! Perfect for a day off! To add style, choose leggings with a pattern and make sure the shirt is long enough to cover your butt!

OVERSIZED, OVER A TURTLENECK

You can wear your turtleneck underneath everyting ... a dress, a big sweater and even a blouse! For an urban look, play with a contrasting color. Tuck-in the front of the blouse into your pants and add a nice sneaker.

WITH A BALL SKIRT, COLLAR POPPED

This classic look is perfect for when formal or very formal attire is required. We love it because it works on women of every age, shape, and style. For a super sleek finish, make sure your shirt has a reinforced collar. And the sleeves? Rolled up to the elbow, of course!

TIE-NECK

Tie-neck is one of the most beautiful details of the feminine wardrobe. For a chic-grunge look, pair it with checked pants.

Super article, merci! Mon seul hic, c'est que lorsque je sélectionne le lien dans mon courriel, il m'amène toujours faire la page anglophone plutôt que francophone. Je trouve ça poche... Pouvez-vous rectifier le tir? Merci!
