Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O and Grace Kelly all favoured a crisp, white shirt, elevating the humble wardrobe staple to style icon status. You simply cannot put a sartorial step wrong with a timeless, tailored cotton shirt, which is why we heart the latest variations on how to wear this chic classic.
Read on for five ways to don yours. The only other rule? Ensure your shirt is pristine ice-white.
Wear it partly unbuttoned at the bottom and team with denim or a high-waisted skirt for a new spin on high-driff trend.
Wear an oversized or long version as a dress, teamed with strappy heels and a leather jacket for a summer event.
Dress It Up
Go prim and proper by tucking in a buttoned-up shirt into a ladylike full or perforated skirt.
Roll up the sleeves and ‘half tuck’ into denim shorts, tailored shorts or skinny jeans for off-duty model cool. Just add a menswear-inspired watch as the final flourish.
Loose & Flowing
And finally, don yours un-tucked and flowing loose over jeans or long skirts for a modern update with minimal fuss.
