The white shirt

A plain, white shirt is the simplest piece of clothing that absolutely never goes out of style. With all the minimalist aesthetic going around, the white shirt has garnered a newfound love. The rediscovery of ‘the white shirt,’ followed by the numerous ways to make it stand out, is all the rage lately.

The admiration truly comes for all good reasons; it goes with everything, everywhere and at all hours. It also attempts to take on the 'modern-vintage' trend with little to no effort. One piece for endless, effortless looks — this Autumn, let's fall in love with the timeless white shirt.

Lengthy and breezy

The long and loose shirts are comfortable and easiest to style; most appropriate for those easy-going days when you do not want to take too long to plan an outfit. Get ready in a rush while beating the heat in this shirt. Head out in your breezy wear with a pair of jeans or leggings. Tuck in (just the front) to 'up style' with ease. For the busy ladies out there, this look can be your no-brainer 'go-to.' Perfect to run some errands in, it's a great choice to stay comfy and graceful all day!

Button down, sleeves up

The basic white shirt in its staple form has to be the 'button down and sleeves up' look. Currently being one of the trendiest ways to pull off a white shirt, it really has taken over the ongoing vintage aesthetic by storm. The classiest way to style it would be to keep the whole outfit simple; wear it with your favourite pair of pants and add some layered neckpieces and look effortlessly chic. Whichever way you choose to style, this is the perfect 'girly-tomboy' crossover that will have you ready for all your hangouts and business convos.

A cute knot

Tying a knot with the two sides of your shirt at your waist screams playful; and we can't get enough of this look! Cute and flirty; pair it with your favourite high-waists for a fun girls' day. This style also accentuates your natural silhouette more!

It's definitely one of the must-try looks for those desiring to switch to something cuter and quirkier with this shirt.

Smart tuck-in

A formal take on the classic white shirt, tucking in looks very put-together while bringing out a serious tone. Whether you are heading for an urgent meeting or a quick bite to grab, it's the most no-brainer way to style. Pairing it with pants is typical; skirts complement this look really well. Some simple accessories and your comfiest pair of shoes are all you need to get through a busy day in this smart-wear.

The half-tuck

Tucking-in just one part at the front is a trendier style to pull off. It's in-between dressing up and down; looks relaxed and effortless, thus, appropriate for any casual outing where you just want to enjoy.

Wear it with your comfiest pant or even a formal pair — depending on the tone you're going for. Keep in mind that it can tend to look 'too carefree;' we suggest pairing it with a stunning heel to tie this look together. But sneakers are, of course, a good option for those laid-back days!

Off-shoulder moment

Flaunting your beautiful bones can never hurt! Bring the shirt down by the shoulders just a notch and button up for your off-shoulder moment with this plain white shirt. This appears to be both simple and sultry; suitable to dress up for any special day. The best part has to be how easily 'high-fashion' it looks while taking barely any extra effort!

Pick your chic-est accessories and heels to pair and go around looking outright stunning all day!
