How to Style the Modern White Shirt



By: Adri Cisneros


Long gone are the days when the white shirt was, well, just that – plain and boring. The newly transformed white shirt is everything a 9-5 gal could ever wish for and it’s totally effortless, stylish, and office chic! With so many details and different cuts, you are bound to find a white shirt to amp up your work look.  Not only will it easily blend with everything in your closet, but it will also become a staple piece that you will want to wear for years.

With the endless options available, it’s really all about finding the best cut and details that work for your style and, of course, your dress code. Decide if you prefer long or short sleeves and it’s all about fit from there. Don’t be afraid to try out an oversized collar, sleeve, or fit! There’s even some that have unique fabrics that help create texture and visual point of contrast.

Now, let’s dive into some styling tips! Since we are in the middle of summer, I opted for a loose short sleeve white shirt, but a long sleeve is also great if you work in a freezing office. I paired the piece with a lace skirt and tan pumps, finishing the look with some jewelry. Feel free to go bold with the bottoms or shoes! Adding a great statement necklace can also bring out your personal style and play up the shirt.
